Birthday dinner - EOTD #8

So this look is very similar or closely similar to EOTD #7 Golden Chocolate which I posted 2 weeks ago. Last Saturday my best friend organised a birthday dinner for me so I wanted to look extra special for this special occasion. Because I worked on that day and I had a very busy day I couldn't think of what to do for my eye makeup. At the end I decided to do something similar to EOTD #7 and do a golden smokey eye look.

For this look I used the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Bold Gold all over the lid and blended it slightly above the crease. I also applied this on the inner corner of the eyes.
I then applied MAC Cross cultural on the crease and blended this out. I used L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Endless Chocolate on the outer V to intensify and smoke out the brown. I also applied this colour on the bottom lash line.
To line the eyes I used Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise Eyeliner. I love this eyeliner as the tip is so pointy and it can create the most precise and thinnest line.
Because it was a special occasion for me I used false lashes and the lashes I used were the Manicare Glam Alicia lashes. I don't usually use falsies since I always have trouble applying them but the Alicia falsies were so easy to apply and they looked natural. I also applied MAC Haute & Naughty mascara to just blend my lashes with the falsies so they look natural.

For the face I used L'Oreal Nude Magique BB cream in Medium and then applied MAC Mineralize SkinFinish Natural in Medium Plus to set it. I contoured my face using Makeup Academy (MUA) Bronzed Perfection Bronzer. For the blush I used MAC Peachtwist and then I finished off by highlighting the top of the cheeks using MAC eyeshadow in Naked Lunch.

And I want to add that I had a great night! We had dinner at a Thai restaurant called Zen Yai and the food there was delicious! I just want to shout out a thank you to all my friends who came and also a BIG THANK YOU to my best friend for organising this dinner.
