Pre Birthday Dinner Look and Outfit

My birthday is in a couple of days (Feb 7th) and it makes me cringe knowing I'm turning a year older OMG! I'm going to be 27 *screams*. Why is time going by so fast? I wish I can freeze time and stay young lol. Am I the only one who feels this way? Let me know in the comment bar below.

I hosted a pre-birthday dinner at my place on Friday. I cooked a delicious spaghetti and meat sauce dinner for my closest friends who are very dear to my heart. Kiko suggested we go to a restaurant instead so I don't have to cook and clean. But I didn't want to. I don't mind doing all the work even if it's my birthday because I love to cook and entertain. Besides, I didn't want to go to a restaurant and have my friends pay for food and drinks. I can feed them. I'll share my pre-birthday pics at the end of this post.



This is the look I wore. I did a subtle smoky brown and purple smoky eyes with cherry lips. I wore my Wet n Wild Mega Last lipstick in Cherry Picking. It's one of the newest shades in the Mega Last collection that just came out. It's a gorgeous vibrant cherry color with purple undertone. It's perfect for my medium skin tone!

Get The Look

face:
  • Aviva Labs face primer applied after moisturizer. It will help make the foundation last longer.
  • MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC42 applied on the face with a stippling brush for a flawless skin effect.
  • Almay Eyebase/Concealer in Medium applied under the eyes for a brightening effect.
  • MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Natural in Medium Deep brushed lightly all over the face to set the makeup.
eyes:
  • NYX Eyebase in White applied all over the lids to prevent shadows from creasing.
  • Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow I Heart Matte purple brushed above the crease with a blending brush, brown applied on the outer corner and crease with a crease brush to define the eyes and white and beige color on the brow bone for highlight.
  • Urban Decay eyeshadow in Sin applied on the lids with a shader brush. It's a shimmery champagne beige color that will highlight the lids beautifully.
  • Physicians Formula cream/gel liner in Glam Hazel Eyes. Black gel liner applied on the upper lash line and water line using an angled liner brush.
  • L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes mascara applied on the lashes in layers.
cheeks:
  • Milani Mineral blush in Mai Tai brushed on the cheeks with a blush brush for a nice flush of color.
lips: 
  • Blistex lipbalm applied on the lips as base. It will keep the lips moisturized under a lipstick.
  • Wet n Wild Mega Last lipstick in Cheery Picking applied on the lips


For my outfit, I wore my new $5 floral halter top dress that I purchased in San Pedro Wholesale Mart. It's such a fun dress and I love the bright pink and magenta against grey color. See my haul HERE. Them, I wore a pair of dark grey tights underneath to keep my legs warm. I didn't bother to wear shoes since we were inside the house.






Pre Birthday Dinner Party photos...

I had pink table cloth and pink balloons. I love pink!  


My homemade baked spaghetti and meat sauce. The secret to a good spaghetti sauce is to let it simmer on low heat for hours.


I also made some garlic parmesan bread rolls.


My best friend Mon got me big flan for my cake. Mmmm.....





With my very good girl friends Grace, Mon, and Lian.


We had so much fun eating and joking around with each other.


Babushka cups from Grace. They are so adorable!!!


A big Hello Kitty eyeshadow palette from my best friend Mon *screams*. I'm so excited to play with it!




I hope you all like my look and thanks for stopping by!

  22. I'm turning 30 on the 16th, and I am SUPER excited! I feel so much more confident and "grown" than I did in my 20s. I think you should embrace every year because if you don't get older, you die young. And plus... 27 looks good on you! I hope you have a wonderful 27th year.
