Make Up Essentials | Night Out

Sunday, 5 October 2014

A few months ago, I wrote a blog post about my Make Up Must Haves, but I focused on my everyday make up and having had lots of positive feedback about it, I thought it was about time that I write a post about my night out make up essentials as they differ quite a lot.

1./Mac- Skin Base Visage
Firstly, I apply this primer to help my make up stay in place for the night.

2./Maybelline - Dream Matte Mousse
I like this foundation a lot because I find it provides a really good coverage and stays on my face all night. It's really lightweight and doesn't feel thick on the skin. 

3./Collection - Lasting Perfection Concealer
I know it seems like every blogger has this concealer, but it really is as good as it's made out to be. It provides excellent coverage and is a nice creamy texture without clogging up the pores.

4./Rimmel - Stay Matte Powder
I've used this powder for years now, I used to use it on it's own, but now I use it to set my foundation and prevent the shine that foundation can sometimes bring.

5./Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder
I use this to contour my cheekbones and provide more definition along my jaw line and along the top of my forehead.

6./YSL - Touche Eclat
I absolutely love this product, I've previously reviewed it in one of my earlier blog posts and I'm still loving it. I use it as a highlighter across the top of my cheekbones and it really makes them stand out more.

7./MAC - Eyeshadow, White Frost
I use this eyeshadow as my base, if I'm going to do a smokey eye look, then I find by using this shadow first it makes the look more soft and not so harsh against my pale skin.

8./MAC - Eyeshadow, Print
Next, I take this eyeshdow and place it on the edge of my eyelid and blend it through the crease to add definition to the lid.

9./Urban Decay - Naked Palette, Creep
This is a really dark eyeshadow so I do not use much of it, but I just use it on the outer corner of my eyelid and blend it in through the crease to create a smokey eye look.

10./L'Oreal - Super Liner, Black Lacquer
I love this eyeliner a lot, it is so easy to apply and is perfect for providing the winged look that I love for nights out.

11./Maybelline - 24hr Colour Tattoos - Eternal Gold
I use a very small accent brush to apply this colour tattoo to the inner corner of my eye to open the eye up and to add a bit of colour to contrast with the grey smokey look on the eyelid.

12./MAC - Eye Kohl, Smoulder
Having tried numerous eye pencils, this is by far my favourite, I run it along the waterline to add definition to my eye.

13./MAC - Mascara, Haute & Naughty
The final step on my eyes is mascara. I love this mascara for night out, I find it too heavy for everyday use, but for a night out, it is provides the perfect amount of volume.

14./MAC -Powder Blush, Style 
The final step in my make up routine is to apply blusher. I love this blusher as it's the perfect pigmentation for my skin tone.

So that's my make up routine for a night out. I haven't included a Lipstick  because I'm yet to find one that I absolutely love and use on a regular basis. I know it seems like a lot of effort and a lot of make up, but it really doesn't take me too long and doesn't end up being a heavy look. Let me know in the comments of any make up products you love for a night out, I'm always on the look out for new products to try.
