NIGHT OUT MAKE UP

18 Feb 2016

I feel like it's been a while since I've shared a make up look with you and after I went out with some friends the other night and really enjoyed doing my make up with a few rediscoveries as well as some new favourites, I thought I would share it with you.

THE BASE

I started with one of the first products I ever mentioned on this blog which I rediscovered when I needed a new primer and that's the Rimmel Fix & Perfect Primer which does a great job of adding  moisture and letting my foundation glide over the top. It's the usual choice for foundation; L'oreal True Match Foundation. I always feel it gives me great coverage as well as getting rid of any redness. A new addition is the Freedom Cream Contour Palette. I take the darker colours and apply where I would usually contour as well as the salmon pink under my eyes before going in with my foundation brush to blend it all out. Another usual choice is the Collection Concealer which I used to finish of the base, however I applied this to my face after eye shadow due to fall out. 

EYES & EYEBROWS

Talking of eye shadow, I went for a more dramatic eye look than usual. I took the Models Own Cream Eye Shadow in Anthracite which is a gorgeous dark silver. I applied this over the lid to prime the eyes before taking the dark brown from my Naked Basics Palette into the crease and taking the lighter brown to transition and blend out that crease colour. I then went over my lid with my Natural Collection "Asteroid" Eye Shadow and then took the same cream shadow again over the top. I finished the eyes off with a little dusting of the Barry M #9 Dazzle Dust- a product I've not used it years.

As for eyebrows, it's another new addition which is the Freedom Eyebrow Powder Duo in Taupe. This is a great alternative to the Anastasia duo with a similar range of colours and at a quarter of the price.To further shape and define my eyebrows I used the L'oreal Brow Artist Pencil in Blonde and then took the L'oreal Brow Artist Clear Gel to set them in place. 

CHEEKS

Two products that I'm sure you could guess are my trusty Sleek Face Form Kit. I further contoured my cheeks where I'd already applied the cream to define my face even more. The trusty Elf Blush in Candid Coral, which is sadly on its last legs, gave my cheeks a subtle flush as well as adding highlight.

FINISHING OFF

For my lashes, I used an old favourite which is the Maybelline The Falsies Mascara. I kept the lips simple due to the fairly heavy eye make up with Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 03. I gave my face a light powder with the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder before placing it in my clutch bag and finally finishing off with my Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray.

I sadly have no colour pictures of the make up on but check out my instagram where I posted a picture before I went out. 
How do you switch up your make up for a night out?
Hope you're going great,
