• Summer Date Night Get Ready With Me // Face of the Day •


A quick, simple look, perfect for an evening of
 sushi eating and green tea drinking.

I went on an impromptu date night the other night and had a bit of time to do my make up. I went for a little winged liner and pink lips, and tried out a few bits that I've picked up recently; the L'Oreal Eau de Teint which is amazing (I reviewed it here) and the L'Oreal L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick in 201 'Rose Symphony' which survived an evening of talking, drinking and eating, and did not smudge once! Cue the naked face -








I always start with my base and I dotted the foundation onto my skin, then blended it in using a buffing brush. I bronzed my face up, skipping the contour, by placing it on my cheekbones, around my hairline and over the bridge of my nose. Then I highlighted using a cream highlighter and my ring finger, blending it on top of my cheekbones, the tip bridge and tip of my nose, and cupids bow. A girl's gotta have her brows! So I filled them in lightly using a dark eyebrow pencil - I always start by filling in the gaps then shaping the front of them. I went for a champagne cream eyeshadow as a base to lighten up the eyes and give a little sheen, then use a champagne colour on top to intensify it. I also popped this into the inner corners of my eyes to brighten them up, too. To further brighten up my eyes, concealing under my eyes was next, using a liquid and medium/full coverage concealer. I then used a realllllly thin eyeliner to create a teeny tiny wing on my eyes and applied one layer of mascara (with a funky wand) after curling my eyelashes with an eyelash curler. Lip scrub was then used to scrub away any dead skin and create a smooth canvas for my lipstick, which was a really pigmented pink liquid lipstick.

I used:
