Neon Lips & Lashes | My 30th Birthday "Face"

So I turned 30 yesterday. IT WAS GREAT! I had the best day a gal could ask for! My son slept in until 9am, we lounged around in our sweats all day and then I went out with my girlfriends to a great wine bar for dinner and ended the night with karaoke! I was just the best ever! I decided to put a little cheat sheet together for my makeup look since I decided on hot pink, neon lips and crazy full lashes. It's rare I go heavy on the lips, heavy on the lashes, heavy on the contouring...but I figured, if you can't go balls to the wall on your 30th birthday, really, when can you?!?! I'm not sure why the photo above makes my lips look ombre (which looks kind of cool) because the YSL lipstick is an even, creamy application and is the same color throughout.

Here's what I used to get my "Birthday Face" on!

Pearls - Discover The Best in Health and Fitness, Women's Lifestyle, Dining, Travel, Activities for Kids, Beauty, Fashion, Home Decor, and More

Yves Saint Laurent Mascara · L'Oreal Eyeliner · M·A·C Eye Shadow

YSL Rouge Pur in color "49 Tropical Pink" (very hard to find, discontinued a lot of places but you can usually hunt it down online).
Ardell Glamour Lashes in "Black 116"
YSL Lip Liner in "3 Fuchsia"
L'Oreal Paris Lineur Intense liquid liner in "black"
NYX Set It & Don't Fret It Matte Mineral Powder
NARS Blush/Bronzer Duo in "Orgasm/Laguna"
MAC eyeshadow in "Twinks" and "Amber Lights"
YSL Singulier Waterproof Mascara in "black"

Such a fun look that lasted all night! Here's to another incredible decade! If last night was any indicator of what the next 10 years will bring, I'm SO looking forward to it!
