New Year's FOTD

Happy 2013 Everyone!!! 

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a great start to your new year. I'm sorry I 
have been so MIA on my blog, but with the holidays plus walking pnemonia plus the flu
made for a sickly girl and I have just been trying to rest and get back to normal. 

I was very pleased with the way my make up turned out for NYE and thought 
I would start the new year off with a FOTD post. Matt and I went out to dinner with a group
of friends and then off to a wedding reception party downtown. If you could have seen us 
a couple hours before getting fixed up you would have said there is NO WAY those 
people look or feel like going out. Still fighting the flu plus moving M in the rain all day made
for a sad pair. But, we got tough and actually had a great night. We headed out right after 12... 
no time for fun... we needed our rest! 

Anyway, here was my look for New Year's Eve:

Foundation: Clinique Even Better 
Concealer: Revlon Photoready stick 
Bronzer: Chanel Soleil Tan De 
Blush: Lorac Velvet Rope 
Highlighter: MAC Pearl Cream Color Base 
Highlighter: MAC Soft & Gentle (powder over cream) 
Eye Primer: NYX HD base
Eye Shadow: Revlon Photoready quad in Precocious
EyeLiner: Loreal Gel in Blackest Black (top)
Urban Decay Rockstar (bottom)
Mascara: Benefit They're Real 
Lips: Revlon Colorburst Gloss in Bordeaux

Other beauty deets: if you can notice I have a touch of bronze 
to my skin thanks to St. Tropez bronzing moose. I applied an hour
before leaving an just like that... COLOR! Love this stuff. 

The thing I was trying to achieve with this look was:

A really good glow and color with highlighted skin and 
and eye look that had a good shimmery purple to match my plum dress. I also wanted
a bolder lip. Here are a few of the key products that made this look.

And New Year's kiss compliments of Mattie... ;) 

I hope you had a great New Year's and have lots of plans, goals, and new perspectives for 
your 2013!!

What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
