My 26th Birthday Makeup & Outfit
Happy Friday! Today I’m finally sharing my 26th birthday makeup & outfit! I love how my birthday photo shoot turned out this year. Ever since my first birthday I’ve had a tradition of doing a photo shoot for my birthday and I think it’s so cool I’ve kept it up. I mean I missed a few years but it’s cool I have a lot and shared quite a lot here on the blog as well. It’s been a week since my actual birthday which is so wild that a week has passed already. So without further ado here is my 26th birthday makeup & outfit!
The main focus is my dress for my 26th birthday. I searched high and low before I found the perfect dress. I literally searched so many stores and could not find one that fit, fit my budget or was the color I wanted which of course is hot pink. I then stumbled upon the Wonderful Life dress from Fashion Nova here. It came in one day and I got it for $19 including shipping. If you shop on there then I suggest you use the discount codes as they are so worth it. It’s pretty good quality and fits true to size. I got the size 2x if you are wondering. It might be a little short as I’m pretty tall though. Honestly I got so many compliments about it out when I was wearing it so I guess it is a special princess dress and it made me fell oh so pretty in it. Whenever I twirled in it I felt I was in a fairytale.
The other details of my birthday outfit I went with pretty much my go to jewelry. I went with some statement earrings that match perfectly. I layered two bow pendent necklaces that went great with the neckline of my dress. Then my pandora rings and bracelet I added on. Last is my bow bracelet and bangle. Of course I had to wear my ow jewelry. Last is my pink bow I got at Icing a few weeks ago here. It is so cute and love the long tails and floral print to add a pop to my hair.
Now for my makeup! I went for a matchy matchy look. My dress and makeup matched and I love how it turned out. My makeup look last year was pretty neutral which I shared here. I loved the look but this year I went more sparkly and glam. The pictures aren’t the best but I did film a get ready with me on my Youtube channel. I went with a hot pink sparkly eye and used the Sunday Funday shade from the Zoella x Colourpop Brunch Date Collection and other colors from the palette. It turned out so pretty and I am getting better at my eyeshadow and so proud of my skills improving. The lipstick I’m wearing is the NYX Soft Matte Cream in Paris and it was a perfect match to the eyeshadow and dress. Also I actually highlighted my collarbone as the dress was off the shoulder. I had never done that before but it was fun and made me even more sparkly.
I almost forgot my accessories. The bag is a birthday present from my dad he bought and brought to me from Manila. I was talking to him over Facetime a few months ago and out of the corner of my eye on camera I see this sparkly pink bag and I yell at my dad excitedly to go over and see it for me. He shows me and I fall in love. I told him to get it and he kindly agreed. It was one of my birthday presents and I love it as soon as I saw it in person. I had it in mind but as soon as I bought my dress and when I got them together I knew they’d look amazing together and match perfectly and they do. Lastly, my heels are my nude chunky heels sandals and surprisingly they were pretty comfy and easy to walk in. I hadn’t worn these in about a year and forgot about them and how well they wear. I definitely will be suing these more now.[left]
Overall I love how this year’s birthday photo shoot pictures turned out. You can see last year’s here and my night out birthday outfit here. I knew I wanted to continue my hot pink tradition and so far I have kept to it. I went back to the Melrose Ave. Paul Smith pink wall to shoot these. It took a good while to get a few good shots but I got them in the end. My dad was having to deal with me and standing in the sun but in the end we got it and I love how pink everything turned out.
That was my 26th birthday makeup & outfit! I hope you love them as much as I do and how they turned out. I filmed a get ready with me and have vlog up of my birthday coming out soon. I’d love to know your favorite makeup look you did for a special occasion and if you go all out like I do. So that was the end of my birthday week and my 26th birthday makeup & outfit. I can’t wait for what 26 will be like and what is in store which I’m sure I will be sharing with you here.
