Face of the Day: Golden 30th Birthday

Happy birthday to me!

No, today isn’t my birthday. It was actually Saturday. Not only that, it was my 30th birthday! I thought I’d show you how I did my makeup for that oh-so-special occasion.

My birthday face of the day features gold eye shadow. Why? Because, not only was it my 30th birthday, it was also my golden birthday since it took place on March 30th. Thus, a gold makeup look!

Face-wise, I used Cover FX Mineral Pressed Foundation on my nose and around my eyes and the Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Cream Blush & Pressed Sparklicity blush compact in Coral Cameo for some shimmer and shine.

In the end, I used the slightly peachy gold shade from the Maybelline Eye Studio Irresistibly Ivy Palette at the outside third of my eyelid. Then, I used the Flash eye shadow from the Stila Glamour Goddess Collectible Red Carpet Palette in the middle portion of my lid. Finally, I used the white shade in the Sephora Moonshadow Baked Palette in In the Heat at the inside corner of my lid.

It turned out pretty golden!

Also, I used Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Stingray, Pixi Lash Line Ink in Black Silk, and NYX Doll Eye Volume Mascara.

Aww, golden birthdays…

I have this feeling that some of you might not know what a golden birthday is. Basically, it’s when you turn the age of the day of the month when you were born. So, since I was born on March 30th, my golden birthday is when I turn 30 (which was Saturday!). If you were born on the 7th, then your golden birthday was when you turned 7.

Got it?

And, typically, some or all of your gifts have a golden theme. For instance, I got this gold leaf ring from Etsy from my mom for my golden birthday. It’s awesome!

Have you celebrated your golden birthday yet? Did you do anything special?
