I wanted to share with you my go to night out makeup look. I love wearing a smokey eye on a night out with a gloss lip and pretty glow to my skin. A perfect look if I’m going to a club, bar or a nice dinner date.
I don’t go too over board and have a extreme dark smokey eye, I like to keep it still noticeable but not overpowering to the eyes. I have blue eyes so brown eyeshadows make my eyes pop and stand out a little more. On the outer corners of my eyes I do add a dark brown or a tiny bit of black to put the eye look together and give it more of a smokey effect. I am loving beauty bays new eyeshadow palettes they are really good quality and you get a variety of different colours to play with. The palette is called identity 42 colour palette. You can get this online at beautybay.com
I added some lashes that are from my own brand called TheFairytaleLashes.com in jasmine. These are more natural looking and elongate my eyes. You can wear these lashes up 20-23 times depending on how well you look after them. I also applied some pencil eyeliner on the bottoms of my eye lids and liquid eyeliner on the top of my lids creating a small wing effect. For the eyeshadow I love using and 100% recommend using a blending eyeshadow brush. I use morphe brushes, they are my favourite brushes to use and can also get them on beauty bay. Make sure to keep blending that eyeshadow so you get a nice blended smoothed eyeshadow look.
Now the face! I used my favourite foundation at the moment which is makeup forever foundation stick. Omg this foundation is everything it makes my face look flawless and hides blemishes like a dream. It’s a little pricey but lasts me a long time. It’s depends how much foundation you apply, I only use a little foundation and use concealer to build up coverage. Click here to get foundation
The concealer I’m using at the moment is L’Oréal Infaillible 24hr concealer and it cost me only £4.99 on amazon. I was debating whether to purchase it as I’ve used cheaper concealers in the past and never did anything for me. But this one is amazing! I use a concealer brush to apply and blends perfectly and evenly.
I’ve been using a brand called illamasqua and was kindly gifted some of the products by the brand. I’ve been using the highlighter beyond powder in daze. If you are a highlighter queen and obsessed with getting those blinding cheek bones then you need to try this out.
It has hints of pink and purple mixed with gold but when applied it gives a light but blinding colourful glow. As you can see in the picture above (me) I also have tried out the colour veil blusher in shade tonic. This is so pretty on the cheeks, I apply this with a small round brush as it’s in a liquid form. This gives you a nice sheer look and would recommend if you are looking for a nice new blusher. I only apply a little of it as I don’t want it to overpower everything. Applying a little bit on the cheeks and over the nose will give you a healthy fresh look.
To complete the look I used wet n wild lip liner in the colour e711 chestnut. I outlined my lips with this liner and then used a pink/nude gloss by benefit called sugar bomb. For brows I use Anastasia Beverly Hills pomade dip brow and applied with an angle brush. For powder I like to use L.A girl pro face HD pressed powder which I found on beauty bay.com to set my face and get rid of any unwanted shine.
