Saturday Night Make-Up

CU party makeup

Doing makeup for a night out is always more fun than your standard daily routine (especially after you’ve hit the snooze button 3 times!). You get to use more products, try out colours that you don’t normally wear and just experiment!

I really like smokey brown/gold tone eyes with red lips – I never feel proper dressed up unless I have red lipstick on! I recently purchased Benefit’s World Famous Neutral kit which comes with 6 eyeshadows and some ‘how to’ guides to show you how to achieve different looks – really like this product.

I can’t stress how much I rate Guerlian’s mascara – definitely the best mascara I have ever tried (and I have used A LOT!). Same goes for Dior’s eyeliner pen, best on the market in my opinion – recently used a Bobbi Brown and Armani one, neither of which impressed me. The Armani one had a really hard nib that actually hurt my eyelids to use and created a rubbish looking line! Highly recommend Urban Decay’s setting spray too if you have an event and want your make up to last all night.
