FOTD: Birthday Party Glam

I'm not one for fancy pants looks, but I'm headed to a cocktail party tonight in early celebration (mourning?) of my birthday, where I'll officially be an adult ;) so I thought I'd try and look like one. Eyes were done with the UD Naked Palette and LIT beach babe glitter. I deviated from the usual red/hot pink lips for Pandora's Makeup Box lipstick in Sunshine, a bright coral orange.

One thing I am NOT is a hair stylist. Mine is in desperate need of a cut, and I'm trying to grow out my bangs so they're in that awkward stage, but I reallly tried to make it polished for once. With the help of SOLIA Ionic 20 hot roller set from Folica I think I'm halfway there! I like this set because it heats quickly and doesn't cause frizz. For this style I sprayed my dry hair with diluted Lottabody setting lotion (you can get this at sallys) and rolled 1-2 in. sections under using the medium rollers. I then lightly brushed out the curls with a large round brush and gave it a shot of John Frieda Crystal Blonde hairspray. (FTC Disclaimer: I received the hairsetter for free as a part of the Folica Review Program but the views and opinions are that of my own.)

A smooch goodbye for a week or so! I'm crazy busy with traveling and my birthday, very little time left to blog or reply to emails, so I hope there's enough here to keep you entertained for a lil bit :)
