Get Ready with Me – Dinner Date

Evening All

Another late post from me. I seem to only find time in the evenings to write lately! This weekend was an action packed awesome one!! I’ll share more of that later on in the week.

My favourite type of posts lately seem to be get ready with me and face of the day! I love seeing these posts from people as you can pick up little tips and get new ideas!

Today’s get ready with me was for a dinner date, I wear this look quite a lot as it’s quite classic and easy!


My hair was straightened so I started off by putting in my lauren’s way rollers pre shower! When my hair is straight if I’m doing something in the evening I like to pop the rollers in for an hour if I have time so my hair has a bit of body. I find doing them pre shower helps speed up the process as the steam slightly dampens the hair!




For my eyes I used a combination of palettes. I used Urban Decay primer potion in eden to start (I’m in love with this and use it all the time if I need my make up to be long lasting or more vibrant. As a base colour I used a combination of bootycall from naked 2 and strange from naked 3. As I wanted a slight bit of colour I blended Benefite Raincheck? through my crease and outer V. I Then applied Buzz from Naked 3 under the eye for some shimmer!


I was feeling classic make up so went with a black flicked eyeliner!! I love winged liner but I have to be in the mood to do it. This nights wasn’t that tidy. For foundation I used Illamasqua Skin Base which is my all time favourite foundation for flawless skin. For concealer I used Nars Creamy Concealer. Another big favourite!


For my brows it was of course browzings! They are horrible unruley as I was letting them grow pre brow arch march wax! For masacara I used They’re Real but I was having a bad mascara day. My lashes weren’t playing ball as I hadn’t got it all off post shower!


For bronzer it was none other than my new bronzer love of Make Believe! I can’t stop using this beaut! It’s so easy! I contour my cheeks and nose with this!


On my cheeks I used the blush and highlighter from naked flushed. I’m in love with the highlighter as it’s finer than MSF so much easier to wear! The blush I love for days when I want more than dandelion gives!


As I was off to meet the guy I’m seeing I opted for a soft neutral lip. If I was out with the girls a red lip would have been a must here! I opted for Revlon Kissable balm stain in honey! I love this shade for easy to wear colour on the lips!


I love how the rollers when applied to my hair straight just give it soft bounce and body. After being in for 45 minutes they give the perfect result for me.



I had to share my new dress as I’m in love with it. It was a bargain £5 from Asda kids range. this is a age 12-13 and I’d say it was an 8 -10 so if your a 12 I think the age 14-15 would fit. I love the bright daisy print and I was instantly sold with the cut out back! I really love a cut out back and as I don’t have a whole lot of boob I love to show back instead of cleavage.

My necklace was a bargain my mum found in boots at Christmas time and was only a £1! As it has gold and silver it’s a great piece. Boots have amazing jewellery and great discounts when they go in the sale so I’d highly recommend checking it out.

I finished off the look with my ever faithful Primark coat and black tights!

What do you wear on a dinner date?

Love M
