caseyyy said: I'm going to Las Vegas for my 21st birthday in the dead of summer!! What makeup should I pack? What else should I pack? (don't be afraid to suggest the outlandish and practical)
Ooooh GIRL, I got you.
For day, I’d keep it simple:
-BB cream with SPF (I love the Maybelline Dream Fresh or the Garnier version…apply these with a foundation brush)
-A Waterproof Mascara
-An Undereye Brightener for hangovers
-Lip Balm with SPF
For NIGHT, go crazy! I’m going for some versatile but classic night looks: smoky eyes with neutral lip, bright lips with neutral eye, all while keeping in mind you probably want to bring a small makeup bag:
-Neutral Pinkish Lippie (I like MAC’s Creme Cup)..for some reason, nude pinkish is like, the prerequisite for girls in bandage dresses. I respect this tradition.
-A Smoky Eye Palette : I usually bring one eyeshadow palette on vacation. For Cheap: CoverGirl or Wet’n’Wild or ELF makes great ones, but look for something that has a neutral shadow as well in case you want to keep your eye look simple for a night.
-A Metallic eyeshadow: for a quick pop on the inner corner or a super quick “i’m too drunk from pregaming to handle this.”
-Something with glitter (try NYX glitter liner) it is VEGAS and it is your BIRTHDAY. A simple glitter eyeliner just adds a slight bit of oomph without being too “I’m 15 and I think glitter is still very important.” I love a silver or gold on the inner corner.
-Fake Lashes: again it is VEGAS, so go crazy if you don’t have glasses
-Bronzer and a good fluffy brush. Keep in mind this looks mad sexy when dusted lightly on the chest and on the cheekbones. Just remember to blend or else it looks like dirt.
-A good eyeliner that couldn’t get off even if you wanted it to. Try MAC gel eyeliner, Kat Von D tattoo liner, or Rimmel Scandaleyes
-NARS Super Orgasm Blush: the sexiest blush in the world. Hands down. Totally worth the 30 bucks because my first one lasted me for 2 years.
-Foundation…you can use the BB cream but if there is ANY reason to wear nice foundation, it’s when you’re gonna be in a shit ton of pictures.
-Eyebrow shit: if you gonna have heavily madeup eyes, make sure you don’t forget the brows
-Setting Spray. Cuz you gonna sweat. And dance. And this will lock you in.
Don’t forget: good sunscreen, strong deodorant, Advil, at least 5 hair ties, loud jewelry and heavy duty makeup remover. Have fun, be safe, and go wild.
AHHHHH the frenemy answered me!!!!!!!! and I knew she would provide the best answer. freaking out.
