Hey Internet Friends,
I have had what can only be described as a hectic few days, Ive had visits from family, my fiances birthday, nights out and enough visits to fishing shops to last anyone a lifetime! I bought Jay fishing equipment for his birthday so I was pleased that he wanted to share his passion with me and look around a few shops, especially seen as usually its him walking round make up shops with me!So in this post I want to show you my make up from Jays Birthday and talk to you a little bit about false eyelashes.
My Problem with False Eyelashes
Why are false eyelashes the only part of the beauty world I just can not do!
I can apply them just fine and they usually look pretty good, I just cant stand the look and feel of them on my eyelids at all. I feel like they obstruct my vision and make my eyes feel super heavy. But like any determined beauty fan I keep trying! My fiances birthday night out was another occasion where I designed my entire make up look around false lashes only to pull them off five minutes before I left the house. So thats it. I hereby call an end to my attempts of wearing false eyelashes. Im hanging up the towel with them.
Lets talk about make up.
I really wanted my eyes to be the key feature for this look and stay with a subtle and natural skin base. The products I used are as follows:
I used a lot of my favourite products in this look including my Mac foundation, Hoola Bronzer, two naked palettes and my trusty Mac Liner and Matte Lipsticks.
The eye look for this was a golden smoky look mostly using the Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette and one shade from Naked 2 to accent the corners.
I personally felt they looked really nice and the false eyelashes really added to the final POW of the look, but as I mentioned earlier, the eyelashes didn’t last long. I used the brown shimmer above the crease with a darker colour through the crease before blending black and silver over the lid. I felt this works with my paler skin tone to really make my blue eyes Pop!
The full face of my make up looked elegant and mature and was appropriate for the evening we had planned. I loved the simple contour effect I could achieve with my new Hoola Bronzer and really hope to do a fuller review on the product at some point as Im really impressed with it!
I finished the look with Mattes lipliner in anticipated and the Matte Lipstick that I must have mentioned before Please Me. I love this lipstick for a look focused on the eyes as it isn’t too bright but really enhances pale skin beautifully.
The evening we had planned involved a lovely meal at an indian restaurant in Sheffield called Aagrahs, I had a deliciously creamy vegetable korma with chapatis and Jamie had a mixed grill meal with pilau rice. After playing a few arcade games we then went to see John Green’s fault in our stars at Odeon Cinema.
Overall we had a lovely evening for Jays birthday and I was super pleased that my make up look stayed in place all night until I got home despite the rainy weather and all the eating and drinking throughout the evening.
Hope you enjoyed this post about my make up from the evening and a bit about what we got up too. It really was a lovely night and Im glad I get to share parts of it with you.
