(Ladyboss, Edward, moi)
My 23rd birthday was last Thursday (6/17). All I wanted for my birthday was to be pretty (and drunk, but that part came later), so my dear friend and makeup fairy godfather Edward Bess came to my rescue!
My darling Ladyboss and I went to Bergdorf Goodman for some lunchtime fun with Edward. Both of us wanted dramatic looks; Ladyboss wanted smokey eyes and I wanted a 'f*ck me' red lip.
Ladyboss' look utilized Edward's "Eye Love You" set (a smokey grey-taupe eyeshadow trio, sooty black eyeliner, and black mascara), plus Daydream bronzer and Afterglow All Over Seduction. Her pale lips were concealer, Pure Impulse lipstick, and Nude Satin lip gloss. She looked so sultry when Edward was finished with her!
My look was simpler but no less dramatic: a nude-taupe eye with strong black liner, glowing cheeks, and a bold red lip.
This is what Edward used on me: Nude eyeshadow all over my eyes, with Intimate eyeshadow on the lids, and a bit of Dusk in the crease. Black eye liner was heavily applied, as was black mascara. I had the honor of being the first person ever to try Edward's new foundation (coming out in September!), and it's a fabulous cream formula. Some concealer and Daydream bronzer brightened my skin, and Afterglow All Over Seduction highlighted my cheeks and nose. My lips: Natural lip liner, Eternal Passion lipstick, and Warm Flame lip gloss for shine.
A treat for you readers: I have video and high-quality pictures, courtesy of kickass Ladyboss. Enjoy!
