Birthday Makeup Tutorial


I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 22! 

God, I have waited so long to sing that! In preparation for my birthday coming up this week, I've decided I want to get into the festivities early. I think it's always the build up to an occasion that's more exciting than the actual day so I'm really milking it for all it's worth because after this week, my birthday will be over for another 365 days and that thought is a little bit depressing. 

I'll admit it, I'm extremely lame and like to plan out my makeup for all sorts of special events so as you can imagine, my birthday is no exception. As I started to think about what sort of makeup look I would like to go for this year, my mind sort of went into overdrive and it all turned out a bit more over the top than I was planning, but sometimes you've just got to go with the flow, and I still absolutely adore this cool-toned, purple smoky eye!
