make-up is my war paint

“Meet the Parents” Makeup

Processed with VSCO with t1 preset

I’ll be meeting the boyfriend’s parents this weekend. (To Tony’s mom: if you’re reading this, hi! Can’t wait to meet you po!) I am equally nervous and excited – I hope they’ll like me, because this is such a crucial part of any relationship. I hope I can make a good, lasting impression.

Because I’m a total control freak, I planned out exactly what to wear (an appropriately smart black dress), and that includes my makeup. Check it out:

Blush is TheBalm’s Frat Boy, a peachy apricot that’ll give a lovely flush to my cheeks.

As requested by Tony’s mom, I’ll be going for light pink lips, so I’ll be wearing Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Mother.

Highlighter is Sleek Highlighting Palette in Solstice, in particular the shade Equinox, a golden bronze.

For eyeshadow, I’ll keep it simple with two shimmer colors – a champagne and a deep chocolate brown – from my Clinique palette.

Swatch party!

So yeah, wish me luck tomorrow as I try not to screw up meeting his parents!
