Makeup for Barrister’s Ball

I’m no makeup guru, but I wanted to share details regarding my makeup for barrister’s ball.

Barristers MU 1Disclaimer: When I was working full time, I wore makeup everyday. In law school, I may wear it if I have an oral argument. Otherwise, I’m bare-faced. This means that certain products I have are old.

For instance, my face primer. I think I bought it back in….early 2013….maybe.

macPrimerSince it was old, the mixture had separated. I tried to mix it and apply it to my face. In my mind, I thought “worse case scenario, my face explodes”.


For foundation, I use Make Up For Ever HD Foundation in 177.

Side Note: I’ve had friends tell me that the brand is too expensive, but when you’re a woman of color, your options are limited. If you can find a good foundation in your shade, you’ll pay anything.

 Nars-1For cheeks, I used Nars in the ever popular Orgasm.

I attempted to  give my cheeks depth with MAC’s blush in Blunt.

Side note on THAT: I was pissed at the MAC girl for a sec, because I let her convince me to buy Blunt, and Blunt is damn near the same shade as my normal skin tone.


MAC-FormatFor my eyes, I used MAC’s blush in Format on my lid.


I used Texture in my crease, and highlighted the lid, corners and brow with Ricepaper.

I just used a cheapy brow pencil by NYX. Oh yeah, my brow lady totally screwed me over. My brows were off skew!

Barr-3For lips, I used Chanel’s Rouge Allure in Passion,


and topped it off with Rihanna’s Viva Glam Lipglass by MAC.   MAC-VivaGlamRi
