It’s a Birthday Party! Makeup and Beauty Blog Turns One

Published in: Just For Fun

Hey ya’ll,

Makeup and Beauty Blog turns one today! I’d love to throw a raging birthday party (complete with keg) for all of us here in my little apartment, but then readers from across the globe wouldn’t be able to attend. I don’t want anyone to feel left out, so since we can’t all be together in real life this time, let’s have an online birthday party instead! This party is strictly B.Y.O.B. — that’s bring your own beauty.

There will be plenty o’ dessert…

And, of course, the DJ will be off the hook because what’s the point of a party without dancing?

fussytabby-dj-meow-mix-1.jpg

DJ Meow Mix is taking party song requests! Mine is Get Into the Groove by Madonna because it always makes me feel like shaking my booty.

How about a little eye candy?

Last, but not least, there’s party favors (my favorite part, woo hoo!)…
mac-fafi-party-favors.jpg

Let’s rock it out!

For the party, let me know…

1. What makeup you’ll be rockin’
2. What your party outfit looks like
3. What food/drink you’re bringing (it’s a potluck, haaay!)
4. Your favorite party song (DJ Meow Mix will play *anything*)
5. Who you’re bringing (significant other, friend, cat, dog, iguana, etc.)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    Hi! Happy Birthday!! I am currently a university student in Ontario (Canada)… studying for exams… so I won’t be “attending”… but have a great time!! I LOVE reading your blog. Your graphics are awesome and you’re very knowledgeable. Certainly helps to satisfy my never-ending need for beauty news!

  2. Tekoa says:

    1) I’m bringing my bright green/black eyeshadow (with lots of black eyeliner) to the party.
    2) Wearing blue jeans and a black t-shirt and my spider necklace. Any fans of Alchemy Gothic look up “Emerald Venom.”
    3) In the spirit of the many cats that frequent the site, I’m bringing Litter Box Cake to the party. This cake is completly edible for humans and involves vanila cake, spice cake, pudding topped with mini-Tootsy rolls and served in a (new!clean!) litterbox with a scooper.
    4) Going to request Bleed it Out by Linkin Park
    5) I’m bringing my siamese kitten, Luna and male companion Eddy.

    HAPPY blog b-day! I’m enjoyed it everday since I found you. :-) I’ll come par-tay-
    1. think I’ll do smokey eyes with mac blackground paint pot, UD revolover (light grey), and lorac shimmer (silvery white highlight)…then my new tarte full blossom gel on cheeks and fresh sugar fairy lipgloss (sheer nude pink).
    2. my “hot” (lol) dressy, dark bootcut jeans, my teal crocs 3 inch pumps (love, they are my party shoes), and a teal modal/ruched vneck, with a thin velvet belt w/ sparklies. and I will accesorize with big silver earrings!
    3. I’ll bring my “famous” hot artichoke and crab dip, oooh so good. yum, I love a potluck.
    4. hmmmm, well right now Fergie’s “glamorous” is stuck in my head, and that kinda applies to the beauty theme, so….
    5. my fnatastic hubby for sure-he is more outgoing than I am, and maybe my 2 dogs if they are allowed. and the cat can come play with dj meow mix.

  4. Thushaa says:

    1. Black smokey eye matched with a soft pink lip. =)
    2. Keeping it simple, black cocktail dress! Woot =P
    3. PASTA! Yum :D
    4. Sort of typical at the moment but.. Low by (the guy who’s name I forgot) ft. T-Pain
    5. My bestfriend Gaby. =)

  5. Amanda says:

    I should clarify my typo…shoes are 3 inch round toe pumps, that are a teal color and croc pattern (*not the croc brand! haha…they are actually Charles by charles david).

  6. Jenny says:

    Hi Karen! Woo hoo!! Happy Birthday blog!! =)

    1. I’ll be rockin a neutral eye (rice paper and soft brown e/s) w/dubonnet lipstick!!
    2. Since I’m feeling pretty festive, a black dress with white polka dots with one of those useless belts.. in red!
    3. Since it’s a potluck.. I’ll bring pancit, haha =) For dessert.. Malasadas!! (I really am that hungry!)
    4. I’m going to have to request “Our Song” by Taylor Swift. I have no idea why, but it’s so catchy =)
    5. My boyfriend would probably want to stay home for this.. so I’ll bring my shih tzu (It was his birthday 4 days ago!).

    3. I’ll bring some hors d’oeuvres, maybe deviled eggs ;) and Arizona Ice Tea

    4. “Everytime we touch” by Cascada

    Happy B’day Karen and thanks for the amazing blog! This is the best & the glossiest beauty blog I know! Keep up the good work! The cupcake looks supah sweet, wish I could have a bite! ;D I think I’ll hit the sack now and answer the fun party questions tomorrow! Enjoy the partay! :D

  11. Sandy says:

    Happy Birthday to your blog =) Yay!!
    Are you going to do a swatch on your MAC Fafi? ^^

  12. Karen says:

    Hi Jess Adkin,

    Thank you for saying hello! It’s great to meet ya! :) Since you can’t make it this year I’ll be expecting you next year, fo’ sho!

    Good luck on your tests! Study hard and then reward yourself with makeup (always works for me.)

  13. Karen says:

    Hi Tekoa!

    I love cake! I started cracking up when I read your description of Litter Box cake, LOL…I’d so dig in in a heartbeat.

    BTW, do you like spiders? I always have, ever since I read “Charlotte’s Web” as a kid.

  14. Happy Birthday Makeup and Beauty Blog!! Congrats Karen on a fantastic first year. You make me smile every time I read your posts.

    Let’s see…
    1. I’ll be wearing the BB gunmetal shadow and sapphire gel e/l that I recently picked up with MAC 4N l/s and 2N l/g. More importantly, I’ll be rockin’ Carolyn New York Hanging on the Stoop on my tips (a gorgeous light gray).
    2. I agree with PeeChee, a slumber party is in order. That means my Tivo slippers are coming with me. And yes I’m that big of a nut that I own Tivo slippers.
    3. I’m not domestic so I won’t be bringing food. But I’ll be toting along some of my favorite wines and a bottle of Three Olives Cherry and Red Bull for some Cherry Bomb shots. Nothing like being drunk and wired on caffeine.
    4. Since I’m brining the liquor, Barenaked Ladies’ Alcohol is a necessity.
    5. Aren’t I enough? *tear*

    *raises a glass* Here’s to an even more fabulous year #2!

  15. Karen says:

    Hi Amanda,

    Okay, so that dip sounds sooooo yummy. I’m at work and half starving right now and now my tummy is rumbling like crazy for crab/artichoke dip.

    LOL, for a second there I thought of those Croc shoes…I was like, “I didn’t know they made high heels! Holy sh*t, where have I been?”

  16. Karen says:

    Oh – feel free to bring your 2 dogs, LOL! They are allowed in, too!

  17. Karen says:

    Thushaa!

    Thanks girl! Glad you’re here to party with us :) You can never go wrong with a black cocktail dress, that’s for sure.

    BTW, I love that song, too. The only thing is though, once it gets stuck in my head it NEVER LEAVES. It’s there for hours, oh god.

  18. Megan says:

    Karen – happy birthday to MABB!!! I’m so excited for you!

    1 – I must admit the makeup and hair is looking pretty nice…even though I got up at 6 am (I normally don’t get up until 7:30 or 8. Stila illuminating moisturizer shade 1, then I used estee lauder eye shadows from a gift set I got at christmas w/ a pallet of 10 shadows…light pink shimmer all over, pinkish white highlight, smoky purplish maroon liner blended up to maroon in the crease…a little smoky purplelish maroon liner under the bottom corner – With Elizabeth Arden Ceramide mascara…still holding the curl. A little pinkish Estee Lauder blush, a little clinique bronzing powder, a little clinique highlight powder…from the blossom thingie in peony… and lips are now bare.

    2 – Unfortunately I’ll be rocking the corporate chic look for the party. I had meetings all day…including giving a presentation, and I’m about to head off to a business dinner. So no fun outfits for me – Black v neck sweater with a black tank under it with some green and black tweed pants and black boots. (I swear I’m not so boring)

    3 – I’m bringing sweet and sour meatballs, Spinach dip w/ Hawaiian Bread, chocolate chip pecan cookies, and for good measure I’ll make some margarita’s (fo’ realz…I love parties…and my friends call me Betty as in Crocker…because I go all out for all of our parties…)

    4 – I’m gonna go old school and request DJ Kool “Let me clear my throat” because I got real hair, real fingernails, I got a job…and I don’t need nobody to help me handle my business… ;-) Then I’m gonna request Montell Jordan “This is how we do it” because it feels so good in my hood tonight. :-)

    5 – I am bringing one of my co-workers because she needs a seminar on blending eyeshadow STAT! LOL…okay so maybe I can’t tell her that and I’ll come alone…because I don’t think my fishies would be safe with so many cats around.

    Congratulations on a successful year again!

  19. Karen says:

    Hi Jenny!

    Thanks girl :) Your neutral eye is like my go-to neutral eye! And Dubonnet is so key for parties, I agree.

    Yummy pancit! And malasadas, holy cow! Maybe I should rent a shave ice machine…

  20. Karen says:

    Hi PeeChee!

    Your smokey eye sounds really pretty. I think I’m going to try that one when I get home today, woo hoo!

    I love cookies too – do you make chocolate chip?

    And seriously, kiddies make the best dance partners. :)

    I hope you feel better soon. Drink water, get plenty of rest…perhaps some more MAC will speed up the healing process?

  21. Karen says:

    Thank you, Kristen :) Have a wonderful day!

  22. Karen says:

    Hi Dao,

    I don’t have Idol Eyes! That’s a new one for me…I will swatch that when I go to my fave counter to pick up some CCB’s.

    Yum, deviled eggs and Arizona Ice Tea sound super good right now. I’ll make sure to have plenty of ice on hand for the drinks!

    LOL, my friends aren’t really into makeup, either. But I’d make ‘em come whether they lip glossed or not! They have no choice!

  23. Karen says:

    Hi Sophie,

    Merci, my friend! Hope things are grand in France :)

  24. Karen says:

    Thank you Christine! :) Can’t wait to celebrate your blog birthday, too!

  25. Karen says:

    Aleks!!!! Hey homie! Get some good rest so you can partaaay like a rock star tomorrow!

  26. Karen says:

    Hi Sandy!

    Thanks dear! I swatched some Fafi a week ago, so I dunno if I’ll do it again. Maybe I’ll put up a few more tutorials…

  27. Karen says:

    Hi Michelle!

    Okay, so now I’m very curious about your Tivo slippers. Chances are, I’d want a pair for myself. (BTW, our Tivo is on it’s last legs! The day that it dies will be a sad, sad day for me.)

    AND holla! Thanks for hooking the booze up, LOL!

    *raises glass too* CHEERS!

  28. Karen says:

    MEGAN!!!

    You (and your Betty Crocker skills) are so invited to all my parties in the future! Holy crap, you’re like a one woman party catering service. ROCK!

    That’s so rad that you’re flossing the EA Ceramide…you know how we do it!

    I had a co-worker back in the day who needed some serious eye blending help and I never felt like I could say anything because we weren’t *that* close, you know? But I totally know how it is to be in that boat, when you just want to be like, “Girl, let me HELP you! PLEASE!” Bring her along, I’ll give her some tough love.

    Don’t worry about your fish! They’ll be safe from the cats in the VIP lounge :)

  29. Lilan says:

    Happy Birthday, Makeup and Beauty Blog!!! And congrats, Karen!

    I will of course be rockin’ my new favorite red lippie, PS Kiss, for the joyous occassion to go with the red velvet cupcakes I’ll be baking (from scratch!) with delicious cream cheese frosting. For my outfit, I’ll be sporting jeans and a tee – can’t be sportin’ no dress in this yucky, rain we’re having.

    And! My DJ Meow Mix request will be for Madonna’s Holiday – after all, MBB’s birthday is a major holiday we NEED to celebrate! :D

  30. Glosslizard says:

    Heeeyyy! Happy birthday!

    1. I’ll wear the fierce fake eyelashes that my mom gave me for Christmas (she rocks) with a shimmery smokey eye in gray tones ala Tarte’s Luuucy, I’m Home, MAC Family Silver and lots of black eyeliner! Contoured cheeks and a shiny light lip courtesy of Smashbox’s Socialite topped with Chanel’s Sundress!
    2. The dress will have to be my crazy Hawaiian street-scene-print sheath dress with black strappy sandals!
    3. I’ll bring my favorite and semi-famous triple chocolate brownies, still warm from the oven!
    4. We can all rock out to the Ramones’ Sheena is a Punk Rocker!
    5. I’ll bring Princess Lily along so DJ Meow Mix can have someone to party with too! :)

    Woo-hoo! Best virtual party ever!

  34. kia says:

    i love dj meow!

    ok so i don’t have all the answers thought out yet, but i’d def throw on some black and white striped stockings with some kelly green ballet flats since it’s a fafi themed bday.

    i’d wear some fascinating kohl.. is that becoming my signature? sheesh!

    i’d request: zhane – it’s a party and Ciara- Get it Up

    Reggie Bush would some how miraculously be in the place (without Kim) and I’d dance with him to the Ciara song ;) we can all dream right?

    then we’d share one of those scrumptious cupcakes.. whoa boo boo.. don’t mess up my Totally It l/g!

    oh and i most definitely won’t BYOB.. i’m after those party favors! ;)

  35. kia says:

    sorry i don’t want to be a loafer.. ummmm i’m bringing chocolate chip cookies!

  36. Karen says:

    Hi Lilan,

    Can you believe that I’ve never had red velvet cake in my life? I’m sure I’m missing out on something spectacular…

    And wooty woot, you know we’ll all jam to HOLIDAY! (One of the best Madonna jams ever!).

  37. Karen says:

    Hiya Glosslizard,

    Don’t forget to take out P-Lilly’s fabulous pink cat wig for the party…she needs to be looking her best!

    Ahhh, yes, Family Silver! I haven’t busted that one out in a while. Maybe I’ll rock that to work tomorrow, if I can get over my Fafi quad crush :)

  38. Karen says:

    Hiya Temi!!!

    Thanks girl, glad you could make it to the par-tay :)

    A huge tub of ice cream is just what we needed, woo hoo!

    LOL, does your sis need some tough makeup love? I’m happy to give it out, even while we’re partying.

  39. Karen says:

    Hi Madeleine,

    Oh, the smokey eye palette – good choice! PJ’s are fine, because I think at some point it turned into a slumber party, too, ha!

    I looooooove that Jamiroquai song, by the way! Always gets me dancing. “)

  40. Karen says:

    Hi Arwin! Come on, stop by for some cupcakes! :)

  41. Karen says:

    LOL, Kia! Reggie Bush will be there, for sure, sans Kim! I’ll make sure of it.

    Funny, I was just listening to that Ciara song at the gym. It totally makes me want to dance, even when I’m on the treadmill.

    And thanks for bringing the chocolate chip cookies, yum!

  42. oh my…that pic of christian bale just stopped me in my tracks. i love that man. thank you for posting that.

  43. Lilan says:

    Miss Karen,

    If you love chocolate, you’ll love red velvet! We’ll make you and DJ Meow Mix an extra batch to enjoy :)

    We’ll also need to request some Michael Jackson before the plastic surgery – PYT, baby! :)

  44. Karen says:

    You are sooooo welcome Live Fabulously. Anything to help another C.Bale fan out. ;)

  45. Karen says:

    Nice! Thanks Lilan! DJ Meow Mix and I anxiously await the Lilan Baking Experience!

    OH YAH! I love MJ pre-”Thriller”. My best friend had (and may still have) Thriller on VINYL! :)

  46. Faustina says:

  47. Lora says:

    Sorry for the late Happy Blogiversary…i just got home from work! I hope the party is still hopin ;-)

    1. I’m rocking my pink and grey eye today (MAC neutral pink, cranberry, and clue) and a clear lipgloss today.
    2. I love love love madonna and she makes me want to dance too…so i’ll have to wear my cutest red dancin’ shoes.
    3. I’m a terrible cook so I’ll pick up something fab from the deli and , of course, I have to bring tequila for the margaritas :-)
    4. It’s raining men would be my request -it makes me dance my fanny off and i’m currently between boyfriends..i wouldn’t mind a shower ;-)
    5. Since no significant other i’ll bring my roommie…she’s a blast and has the cutest puggle puppy!

    Karen I love your site..you are such a delightful person…you truly make me smile with your exhuberance! Your smile is contagious. Happy 1st anniversary and I wish you many many more!

  48. Veronica says:

    Thanks for the invitation!
    1. I’ll be wearing a green and purple smokey eye with natural lips, and a really soft blush.
    2. My party outfit would be a grey dress and some gorgeous tiny shoes!
    3. I’m not a great cook so I’ll just go for the dessert, some Capuccino-panacotta with a twist of amaretto and for the night snack I’d bring my famous cinnamonbuns. You got to have that midnight snack.
    4. Sine I’m a huge Van Halen fan that’s the music I’ll bring. Any song will do (okay, not the really early songs, they’re just plain weird!)
    5. My boyfriend wouldn’t really understand all the makeuptalk going on, so I would bring my cat. He’s a great fan of jewellery and makeupbrushes. He steals my earrings and runs away with them, but I always find it at the same spot. And this morning, he looked into the eyeshadows, choosing a green one.

    Seems to be a great party!

  49. Aura says:

    Happyyyyy Birthday ! It’s been only a couple of month since I read you DAILY!, but I’ve taken my time to catch up with some of your older posts. It’s amazing, before you barely had any comments in your posts, and now you have tons of followers, that says it all!

    It must be an incredible experience!

    I hope to meet you one day in SF, dreaming of going there, LA and Las Vegas, maybe next year? ;-)

    I’ll wait for my husband to sit the baby, and then I’m off to party with you tonight! Although given the time difference I think I’ve missed the party already LOL :-S

    I’m in Brussels, Belgium. Welcome anytime by the way…

    Take care,

    Aura

  61. 1. What makeup you’ll be rockin’
    I have this craving for intense blue-green eyeshadow, so I’ll stick that on with some liner, and beige lipstick.
    2. What your party outfit looks like
    Hmm…probably what I wear all the time but cranked up a bit…dark wash jeans, pretty blouse, lots of jewelry, nice shoes.
    3. What food/drink you’re bringing (it’s a potluck, haaay!)
    I’ll bring a keg…but it has to be whipped cream inside, not booze.
    4. Your favorite party song (DJ Meow Mix will play *anything*)
    Dancing Queen by ABBA of course!
    5. Who you’re bringing (significant other, friend, cat, dog, iguana, etc.)
    My hamster Snowball is coming. Don’t let the DJ eat him, Ok?

  62. Lea says:

  64. Karen says:

    Hi Faustina,

    OH GOD, I love and hate that song! Now I’m gonna be singing it for the rest of the afternoon: “The whole club was looking at her…she hit the flo’, next thing you know…” LOLOL!

    Thanks for bringing the veggie lasagna! My fave, yum!

    Oh, Fafi Eyes 2. I’m debating if I should pick it up or not. Yes? No? Maybe so?

  65. Karen says:

    Hi Lora!

    Awww, thanks so much for the well wishes, hon…great to have you at the par-taaay!

    OH, and yay, magaritas! I’ll have one on the rocks, with salt! *Cheers*

  66. Karen says:

    Hi Veronica,

    Fun! I’ll have DJ Meow Mix hook up a few Van Halen hits (I think though, that he only has the albums with Diamond Dave as the lead singer…he’s not to fond of the Sammy Hagar years)!

    That’s so cute/weird that your cat steals your stuff…at least he drops it all off at the same place! That’s very courteous of him, LOL :)

    Thanks for coming to the party!

    Hi Aura,

    WOW! Thanks girlfriend! One day I will make it to Brussels, and hopefully I can meet up with you so we can have a coffee, chocolate and a chat! Fun!

    Or, if you ever come out my way I will show you all the makeup hot spots :)

    Thanks for reading every day…it’s been pretty cool, I would’ve never thought that one year later I’d have so many new friends online from all over the world. That has really been the best part of it all.

  68. Karen says:

    Hi Anna,

    Your outfit sounds supper cute! Gotta love the bubble hems!

    BTW, I have a few Fafi lipsticks sitting on my desk right now, and Not So Innocent is one of ‘em.

    YAH! Of course the DJ will hook up JT! HAWT!

  69. Karen says:

    Hi Ayayan,

    Thanks sweetie! Hope you’re having a good one!

  73. Karen says:

    Hi Ping,

    And yes, CAKE! I love it!

  74. Karen says:

    I know, Glosslizard! It’s still a going! I’m a mimosa girl myself, but maybe I should make some bloody mary’s for the vodka girls…

  75. Karen says:

    Hi Candy (aka Cecilia),

    Aww, will you be there tomorrow? I will be in the Union Square area and can pop by! I was just at your counter a few weeks ago…Shannon hooked me up with a nice sample of foundation!

  76. Karen says:

    Hi Carla,

    Oh, you can never go wrong with the lil’ black dress, that’s for sure! And thanks for the gift, how sweet! :)

    Hi LaurenIvy,

    Thank you so much! I hope there will be more to come too! :) So much makeup, so little time, LOL!

  79. Karen says:

    Hi The Apprentice,

    A keg of whipped cream is totally cool. We can use it to top the off the ice cream that Temi’s bringing!

    And I’ll make sure that the DJ keeps his paws away from your hamster!

  80. Karen says:

    LEA! Thanks girl!

    I just heard that song a few minutes ago…LOVE IT! And bravo for your false eyelashes! It’s not a party unless you’ve got ‘em on!

  81. Candy says:

    Oh no! I won’t be there tomorrow. Nevertheless, I hope I get the chance to meet you one day. What fun it would be to try on and review products with an expert like yourself! Enjoy your day tomorrow. I heard it’d be wet so stay dry!

  82. Karen says:

    Hi Candy,

    Aww, too bad. I’d love to hang with you and all the Prescriptives folks some day soon. I will do my best to stay dry, you do the same! (I’ll just keep my fingers crossed and hope the sun comes out, ha!).

  83. Mrs. Lynne says:

    You are so darn cute Karen. You’re like a little girl in a woman’s body. I love it. Me and you can doll around in our jammies and watch Yo Gabba Gabba. Speaking of which, it wasn’t on all week until today! Whatup with that? Almost made an urgent call to Nick Jr. network.

    Happy Birthday from Portugal!!
    I just wanted to congratulate you on the amazing work you do on your blog. It’s has been one of my latest addictions and it’s good to have a cheerful and very nice blogger to relieve the “pain” on more difficult days and giving us good ideas and tips on makeup.
    Keep up the good work!!!

    Makeup maniacs of the world, unite!
