Get Ready With Me | OOTD | Evening Makeup Look

In this post I wanted to share with you an outfit of the day from a trip to Brighton and an evening makeup look! 

I recently spent a night in Brighton with my gorgeous little sister! I went on a little shopping trip before going and picked up this top! It was from New Look for £19.99. It is light and I love the colours! I think it's just perfect for summer evenings.

This makeup look does give off a more autumnal feel, and it is definitely too hot for makeup these days, but for evenings I love this look! 

Foundation: MAC Studio Fix 
Concealer: Rimmel Match Perfection 
Powder: Pixi Flawless Finishing Powder 
Blusher: My usual blusher broke in my suitcase so I found a really cheap one in my collection I don't even know where it is from!!!
Bronzer: Soap and Glory Wonderbronze
Eye Brows: Soap and Glory DIY Brow Bar 
Lipstick: Mac Matte Taupe 
Eyeshadow: Naked One Buck and Virgin and Naked Smoky Thirteen and Whiskey
Eyeliner: Soap and Glory Supercat 
Mascara: Soap and Glory Thick and Fast

Benefit Double The Lip | Lipstick and Liner in One

I love a bit of lippy but I am always forgetting liner so when I came across the Benefit They're Real Double The Lip a lipstick and liner in one I was very, very excited!!

I have a few of the other shades as well but this is the Lusty Rose shade and is by far my favourite!

The drop shape of this lipstick makes it so easy to apply but the only negative I have experienced is it needs a lot more upkeep then other lipsticks I have!  This need to reapply it a lot does put me off wearing it. 

Despite this I love the concept and the bright shades are just stunning! 

Thanks for reading,

Get Ready With Me

Boohoo is my go to shop especially in my last minute clothing needs as there always seems to be a great deal on next day delivery. This top and skirt are both Boohoo pieces, the skirt is a summer essential for me as I can pair it with just about every top I own! This top I actually picked up for my sister but of course I have already stolen it as it is quite big for its size. 

This evening makeup look features a few of my makeup favourites. Lets start with the bits from MAC. I have been very conflicted when it comes to Mac in past because I had alway been told that they use animal testing and as a vegetarian this is something I would never support. I recently did a little bit of research and " MAC does not test on animals and we never ask others to test for us. If a regulatory body demands it for it's safety assessment, an exception can be made". This made me want to know more about these regulatory bodies and found that MAC states that China is the only country that tests on animals as part of it's safety assessment. Now we have cleared that up lets get on with the products. 

Foundation: MAC Studio Fix 
Eye Primer: MAC Painterly Pro Longwear Paint Pot 
Lipstick: MAC Matte Taupe

I am a huge Rimmel fan and on a day to basis use Rimmel foundations as well as these great value products:

Primer: Rimmel Fix and Protect 
Concealer: Match Perfection 
Powder: I have featured the Rimmel Stay Matte powder as well as the Pixi Flawless Finishing Powder. This Pixi powder has a shimmer to it so I don't like to cover my whole face in it so although I used it for this look I would choose the Stay Matte. 

Soap and Glory:

I love love love Soap and Glory and the products I have featured have lasted me such a long time!

Bronzer: Soap and Glory Wonderbronze, this bronzer combines beautiful shades of pink, gold and white shimmer. The little blusher is a natural collection blush, it has somehow lost its packaging but I love the shade too much to stop using it!!

Mascara: This Thick and Fast mascara is an all time favourite of mine and I am yet to find another one that beats it.

Eyebrows: The DIY Brow Bar shades are the perfect, the lighter one for day to day and the darker for evening looks as shown in this post. I love powder for brows as long as you have the right brush!

Urban Decay:

Eyeshadow: The eyeshadow shades for this look are from the Naked 2 and Smoky palettes featuring Half Baked, Chopper and Whiskey. 

Thank you so much for reading!

Battle Of The Naked Palettes

When the Naked palettes first caught my attention it was all about the Naked 3 and this was the first palette I bought. I was so in love with it that when the Smoky palette came out I was so excited to get my hands on it! This Valentine's Day my boyfriend completed my collection with Naked 1 and 2!

I fell in love with Naked 1 when I got my sister one for her birthday, it combines the gorgeous soft pinks from Naked 3 with more warm brown tones then the Smoky palette, and that's what makes this palette amazing!

I am really excited by the black colour in Naked 2 and I like that this will also tie in with the shades from the Smoky palette.  I am obsessed with the rose gold shades and think that this palette is just so beautiful!

As you can see the next two palettes are very well worn!! The Naked 3 has such a stunning range of pinks which I love to blend out with the more pale colours. As this was my first palette it's my first love!

The Smoky palette has some gorgeous golds and I love the brown shade. I rarely use the blue and silver shades though as I feel like I end up looking like I have two black eyes!! However in terms of the packaging this palette is my favourite, it shuts magnetically unlike the second and third palette. 

All of these palettes are just lovely and have gorgeous shades throughout and really it is down to personal preference! All of these Naked Palettes are £39.50 on Feel Unique, although that may seem expensive I got my Naked 3 a few years ago and even with lots of use it's still so full! 

Thank you so much for reading! I would love to know which one is your favourite so leave me a comment! x
