Bonjour mes belles :))

In today's post, I'm featuring a makeup look I wore last week to a theme birthday party for my fabulous friend Kavita, who celebrated her big day in the funky style of Ibiza nightlife. Ibiza is a party island off the coast of Spain and is known for its fiery, crazy, fluorescent, "barely there" fashion and atmosphere. The birthday girl was adorned in brights, glitter and feathers and the guests sipped on Sangria as they danced the night away to Euro beats. Since the party was held in a NYC loft and not on a hot sandy beach, I wanted to concentrate most of the crazy fluorescence on my face, rather than in the styling of my wardrobe. I did, however, wear a see-through top with a bright bathing suit underneath and a mini leopard skirt for the barely there factor. My maquillage was very bright and different from what I would normally wear to a party, so I named it Fluro-Trash, if you know what I mean :))) Here's the look:

For this makeup look, I used lots of bright eyeshadows (mostly from the Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow Box palette) and paired it with my favorite bright party lipstick: Nars semi-matte lipstick in Schiap. Here are some of the tools; excluding lashes, mascara, face makeup, and liner.
Eyeshadows [Urban Decay]--Honey (center lid); Ransom & Fishnet (crease & lower lash line)
Eyeshadows [36 Smokey Eyeshadow Palette]--shimmery pink (inner corner); matte teal (outer corner)
Glitter--NYX glitter liner in Gold (center lid, over Honey)
Lashes--Ardell whispies

Lip liner--NYX liner in Fuschia
Lipstick--Nars Schiap
and here are a couple of inspiration party photos taken by moi over the years :)))

Sometimes, I like looking like a disco ball :)))
