EVENING LOOK | Beauty


I'm gonna kick this one off with an apology, sorry if you're all currently thinking - 'this gals got a new camera and all she does is take bloody pictures of herself!'. Fear not, my blog is not going to become one huge instagram-esque feed, however this weekend I've done a few make-up looks which I've felt were a bit different from my usual 'daily' face so I thought I'd photograph them and share them with you. I personally like make-up looks and face of the day posts as I find they're great inspiration but they also show a bit more off about the bloggers personal style and preferences. 

Last night my friends and I hit the town, I was wearing the Topshop playsuit which was featured in my latest haul video and I wanted to change it up with my make -up to make the playsuit stand out. I find Topshop sometimes has statement pieces which can only be worn a certain way, so you hit town and everyones wearing the same outfits!

I got my inspiration for this look from a pixiwoo tutorial on YouTube. I didn't follow the tutorial really just took a look at the final look as I do get bored watching tutorials - nobodys fault I just tend to skip through them all the time! At first I thought I looked like a bit of a weirdo as it's something a bit different from a usual make-up look but it grew on me! It's a great look for me as I have small eyes and it made them appear larger.

I'll tell you briefly what I did as I'm sure the pixiwoo tutorial will be a better place for you to get the steps! Basically I kept the skin pale and clean with a subtle contour and blush. I filled in the brows and then using my Naked 2 palette I used Verve in the corners of the eyes and Suspect all over the lid, I didn't want the eyeshadow to be too dramatic as the eyeliner was going to speak for itself so I used Snakebite to go in the crease for a subtle contour. I then used L'Oreal Superliner Blackbuster to create a cat flick on the top lashline, this was quite a thick line. I went over with MAC Eyeliner to darken the colour. Underneath the eyes along the waterline and lashline I applied a MAC Kohl in Fascinating, a white liner, to open the eyes. I then followed the curve of the eye beneath the lash line with the MAC Eyeliner - tense times. For the lips I struggled with picking a colour that would balance the drama of the eye and not make the whole look too dark. I settle on MAC's M.A.C Red all over the lip and then went along the lip line and all over the lip with a Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipliner in Black Tulip to darken the lip slightly. 

I quite liked this look and may wear it again on a night out! I do think its a rather dramatic look  so I'll probably stick to nights for rocking this one. I think it's perfect for those of us who have small eyes, I don't really have much of a 'crease' and my brow bones are quite low so heavily smokey eyes don't usually work for me!

What do you think of this look? Would you wear this?
