Hello beautiful people! I hope you all had a wonderful week!
As some of you may know from my previous post last Saturday (July 26th) was my 23rd birthday! It was a really incredible weekend full of family and friends and definitely made me appreciate the amazing people that I have in my life. Saturday night I went out to a pub here in Toronto called Paupers with a few friends and had some drinks and food and a lot of laughs! I thought I’d do a post about the outfit I wore and the make-up I used!
Unfortunately in all my excitement with it being my birthday and all I completely forgot to get someone to take a photo of just me and my outfit! (I know, so bad I’m sorry!) So I just have this one of me and Carmen, but I took a photo of everything all laid out for you guys so you could see them a little more closely as well.
I wore a peplum top from Anthropologie which I got on sale for $30! I love this top because it’s a soft fabric and the bottom is scalloped which I think is really cute and feminine, I also love that it has a little peep hole in the back adding a little bit of sexiness to the top. Again so sorry I didn’t take better photos of me in the clothes!
I wore dark skinny jeans from American Eagle ($49.99) which are super comfortable and also super flattering
and finally I wore blue Jeffery Campbell heels which I bought on sale last summer but I can’t remember exactly how much I paid for them. I love these shoes, they’re not so high that I’m going to snap an ankle but they’re high enough that I still feel flirty and cute when I wear them and I adore the fact that they’re blue.
My purse is just a brown little bag I bought from ALDO a million years ago; I wanted to use this because it actually zips up and also because it’s small and easy to carry around. I know it doesn’t match my outfit but it’s also the kind of bag I can toss around and not be worried because it’s so old and well loved.
For make-up I really wanted to do something a little bit smokey but with some colour so I used my brand new Naked 3 palette which I bought myself as an early birthday gift (woops) I used a lot of the colours, really building them up and creating the look I really wanted to achieve and I was super happy with how it came out.

lipstick: BITE beauty custom colour, I made this when Sephora had a event where you could pick your colour, finish and scent. Mine is a really pale baby pink, it’s matte and it smells like cherrys
That’s everything I wore for my birthday night out! I had the best time and it was all thanks to the great people who came out to celebrate with me! I hope this gives some of you inspiration to use some of these products or even recreate this look for your birthday or any night out!
