FaceOfTheNight: Graduation Dinner




Hey guys, I just want to share a makeup look I wore to my friend's graduation dinner last week. I'm so proud of my friend Grace. All her hard work and perseverance has finally paid off. She graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor's degree in Art History whooo hooo!!!

For this look, I decided to do a gold and brown smoky eyes with nude lips. I've done this kind of look plenty of times. A shimmery color on the lids and a dark color on the crease then blended out with a blending brush. It's pretty easy to do. I also applied a forest green eye liner on my upper lash line and water line. It's not as harsh as a black eye liner, yet it still defined and framed my eyes. Hopefully you can see it because it's a pretty color.

Here's what I used...

face:
-Rimmel London Fix and Perfect foundation primer
-MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC42
-Almay Eye Base concealer in light/medium
-MakeUpForEver HD Powder

brows:
-NYC Brow Kit in Brunette

eyes:
-Urban Decay Primer Potion
-NYX eye shadow in Yellow Marigold
-Wet n Wild Color Icon I Heart Matte eye shadow palette (Brown and Black eye shadows)
-Physicians Formula Organic Wear eye liner pencil in Black Olive

cheeks:
-Sally Hansen Natural Beauty by Carmindy in Cherub

lips:
-Wet n Wild Color Icon lip liner in Willow
-Revlon Matte lipstick in Nude Attitude (applied lightly by dabbing. It's the only way I can make this color work because it's too pale for my skin tone.)


Hope you guys like this look.










We went to The Stinking Rose restaurant in Beverly Hills. As you call probably tell by the name and the cute and funny hat in the photo below, it's a garlic restaurant haha. OMG, I love it!!! Their food is really good and  super garlicky. I'll talk more about it on my food blog.



My friend Grace and I.





Thank you for stopping by. I'll see you in my next post ^_^.
