It was a rare occasion that I went out on Saturday night so I thought I would share with you my makeup look. I had just watched Australia’s Next Top Model where they were all wearing subtle eyes and stunning red lips so I thought I would give that a try.
For my base I chose my favourite foundation for a night out the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 4.5 – This has a great amount of coverage plus it gives my skin a beautiful glow which is what I was looking for. For my terrible dark circles I chose my favourite combination of Napoleon Perdis The One Concealer with the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser in Light/Pale – this combination is the only thing that seems to cover up my dark circles, the Napoleon concealer is very think and salmon coloured which cancels out the darkness and the Maybelline concealer is extremely lightweight but adds extra coverage to really knock that darkness over! For concealing on my face I used a new product to me, its the Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer in Medium Beige – After watching how Lisa Eldridge conceals I realised I needed to use something with a little bit more coverage and this certainly seems to do the trick.
To keep this all in place I used my trusty old Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Peach Glow – I know this powder will set my makeup plus make it last all night. I definitely needed to add some dimension to my face so I chose to bronze with another trusted favourite Nars Laguna Bronzer – as you can probably see as I have hit pan, I really do love this bronzer it just adds a lovely glowy bronze to my face. To add even more dimension to my face I decided to contour with the Hourglass Ilume in Bronze Light – the cream formula and the cool tone of this makes it a very natural contour look and the cream highlighter is also stunning! Finally for my face I used my new love Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Seductive Pink – I used this very lightly on the apples of my cheeks for a subtle flush, I really wanted it to be about the bronzer.
For eyes, I wanted it to be super subtle so I used a mixture of Taupe and Sable from my Lorac Pro Palette – this added a bit of definition to my eyes but wouldn’t distract from my dramatic lip. I also tightlined my upper lash line with the Rimmel Scandleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Black – this was just to make my lashes a little bit fuller. Now I forgot to photograph the mascara I used but it was the Benefit Roller Lash – this give me nice long and volumes lashes. For eyebrows I wanted them to be fairly bold so I used my Anastasia Dipbrow in Chocolate – it fills them in perfectly as well as keeping them in place.
Now for the very exciting part, red lips!! I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to go completely orange red or a blue toned red so I though ‘why not both?’ I filled in most of my lip with Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square and lightly went over that with Cruella this was a beautiful effect and one I’ll definitely be doing again!
So that was my look for a Saturday night out! I never realised just how much makeup goes into a night look! When I was taking these photos I thought to myself ‘wow that is a shed load of makeup’. I hope it’s just not me! What do you like to wear for a night out?
