Hope you had a good weekend. I’ve had a really busy week last week and the weekend was rather busy too. I went out on Friday night and thought I’d do a type of get ready with me post. I love watching these on YouTube and love FOTDs that show you the look step by step so it’s easily re-creatable. The lighting and photos aren’t great as it was night time!
After showing and washing my hair these are my current go to products! I have to use a lip scrub and I couldn’t be without my breath of fresh air toner. As I’ve got a few big spots at the moment I use my Effaclar Duo before my moisturiser. As It was for a night out I used the Label.M volume foam to add some extra volume to my hair.
I was soooo impressed with the volume the label.m foam gave and it didn’t make it sticky either or feel caked in product! Hello night out must have!
For a flawless night out for me there are four products I have to use! Benefit Porefessional, Illamasqua Skin Base applied with a beauty blender type sponge and Nars Creamy Concealor. They all just make my skin flawless. Illamasqua skin base was definitely a foundation I fell in love with only after using a beauty blender type sponge. It was all I found worked for me application wise! I then set all my base using my HD brows powder!! I’m really loving this for oil control and setting make up.
At the moment I’m totally in love with the make believe bronzer. It’s a perfect matte shade and comes with the softest brush. I contour my cheek bones, nose and around my forehead and temples.
As I was going out it had to be Benefit Dandelion blush. No matter how much I wear other blushes none are as beautiful as this. I love the soft pink. I then used Mac MSF in soft and gentle. It really adds a shimmer to the cheeks.
To primer my eyes I blended constructivist Mac paint pot all over the lids up to the crease using a real techniques crease brush.
I then applied Mac naked lunch (a soft nude shimmer) all over the top of constructivist to set it.
To the crease I blended out a mid brown matte shade. This one is from a Lancome palette I have but is similar to UD tease in the naked 2 palette.
As it’s been a while since I wore it I blended Mac Cranberry through the crease and under the eye. To smoke it out and to softer the redness I blended a matte black shade through the outer v and half way across the under eye.
For me it’s all about the Eylure 116. They are one of my favourite lashes as they are subtle and just lenghten. I applied these and lashings of Maybelline Colossal Volume.
For my brows I used my Benefit browzings. I use a combination of the wax and powder and set with a Collection clear mascara. I think used my Laura Mercier Secret Concealer to line around my brows to highlight the brow bone and sharpen the brow line.
I then lined the eyes using my Maybelline gel liner in black and a real techniques liner blush. As I didn’t want my eyes to be too black I used Rimmel Scandaleyes liner in nude to line my waterline.
For my hair I straightened it and add slight shape to the front by turn the straighteners. I hate it when my hair just sits flat.
For the lips I went with Mac Fanfare. It’s such an easy to wear colour and looks soft and subtle on the lips without looking OTT when wearing a bolder eye.
Finally for my outfit I wore nude sparkly shorts bought in the New Look sale last year, New Look black vest with lace detail, New Look blazer, Primark fleece lined tights (I’m getting so old I wear tights on nights out!) and finished the look off with my Primark boots, Ollie and Nic clutch purse and my sphere of life heart necklace!
Hope you all had a great weekend! Do you mind photo heavy posts?
