It was one of my lovely friends birthdays on Saturday night so we headed out to dinner and a night on the town to celebrate! I thought I would share with you what I used for my makeup look. Starting with base and face. I forgot to include my primer in this picture but I used Benefits Porefessional which keeps my makeup in place all night. I then used Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk foundation in the shade 4.5, this foundation is beautiful! I always use this when I’m headed out for the night, it is extremely long lasting and gives your skin a lovely dewy glow. Now I’ve been having a few late nights and early mornings so my dark under eye circles were on a whole other level! My secret weapon to cover my extreme dark circles is Napoleon Perdis The One Concealer this is a very peachy coloured concealer that seriously conceals anything! I combine this with my pretty grubby looking Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser in the Shade Light, this is the only combination that completely covers my dark circles without looking like cake central. For the rest of my concealing I used the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Classic Beige. I recently rediscovered the beauty that is Bobbi Brown All Over Bronzing Gel in Desert Sun, this is a bronzing gel that really warms your skin up in summer but I also use it for contouring which I did on Saturday night. It looks slightly scary when you squeeze it out of the tube but once you blend it in it looks very natural with just a slight touch of shimmer. As I have oily skin I have to set my foundation with a powder and I recently purchased the MUA Matte Perfect Loose Translucent Powder, this has done a really fantastic job of mattifying my t-zone as well as aiding my foundation in lasting a lot longer. For blush and highlighter I could not go past my latest purchases from The Balm, I used the Instain Long Wearing Powder Blush in Toile and the Mary Lou Manizer, these two products are definitely long lasting on a night out!
For my eyes I used the Sleek I-Diving Palette in Oh So Special, I used the coppery bronze colour, top third from the right, all over my eyelid. Then I used the brown matte, bottom third from the right, in my crease and finished it off with the dark matte brown colour on the outer corner of my eye and on my bottom lash line. I made a thin line across my top lash line with the Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Line in Black then smudged it a little with dark matte brown eyeshadow. For mascara I couldn’t go past Benefit They’re Real Mascara. This mascara does not budge which I’m sure many of you would know when it comes to trying to remove it! Finally I used the dark matte brown colour from the Sleek palette to fill in my brows. I forgot to include the lipstick I used for this look but as it was quite a dark smokey eye I used my trusty NYX Matte Lipstick in Audrey. I really enjoyed this look and it was lots of fun do and I’ve got to tell you even after dancing the night away I still looked quite presentable, no panda eyes in sight!
