FOTN - A Fun Evening Out

Last saturday my husband and I headed out with our friends for a meal and some drinks. My hubby and I haven't really been out as much since moving to Ipswich and thought it would be a really nice too. I didn't want to go over top with my makeup but wanted to look different from my normal routine at work. 
So I came up with a nice polished look that was, in my eyes, perfect for an evening out with my friends and of course my lovely husband. 
So without further ado here is the look that I came up with.

Also on another note, I had my hair cut and dyed just before New Years Eve. It has grown a lot since then but you can see how short it is and the colour is has been dyed to. I really do miss my old long, wavy hair but I needed it cut because it was in such bad condition. I am planning to re-grow my hair, this time keeping it in the best condition possible, and re-dying every couple of months.
I just guess I am a girl who loves her long wavy california styled hair ♥

Here below are the products I used to create this look. All of these products are from recent or past hauls and all seem to go really well with my skin tone and type. I cleansed, toned and moisturised my face as per usual followed by my MAC's Prep and Prime primer. I allowed this to settle on my skin before using my ELF stipple brush and applying my ELF Tinted Moisturiser, with an SPF 20, in smooth circular motions. I used my Collection 2000 concealer under my eyes and on any imperfections, blended with a small fluffy eyeshadow brush, before using my kabuki brush to apply my MACs Skinfinish Natural. This was followed by using my blusher brush to apply ELF's blusher in Tickled Pink to add a healthy, rosy glow to my cheeks.
Now since I had the basic look completed, I decided on a basic eye with two colours, eyeliner and helpful lashings of mascara. I primed my eyes using Urban Decays Primer Potion, allowed it to settle before applying Urban Decay's shadow in Naked, which is perfect for my eyelids as a base, followed by their other shadow in Sin, which is one of my favourites, over the top. Using my ELF Cream Eyeliner in black, I used the angled brush to apply it across the top of my eyelid ending right at the very end of my lashes. Using Urban Decay's 24/7 eyeliner in Zero I applied it to my lower and upper lash line before using Maybelline's The Falsies Volume Express Mascara in black to complete the look.

So there you have it. My simple yet pretty look for a night out with my husband and friends. I really did enjoy myself, had a few glasses of red wine and a lovely yet massive cheese, bacon burger. Yum!!
To top it all off we all headed around to our mates house for singstar, and more drinkies, where we all remained till 12/1ish in the morning. To top that off my hubby and I ended up running home in a blizzard which to be honest was fantastically fun =)

I hope you all enjoyed reading my first in a long time Face Of The Night/Evening. I really did enjoy writing this out for you and do plan to do more of these each time I apply more than powder, mascara and eyeliner to my face.

Did you like my FOTN? What do you think about my hair style? Does the colour suit me?

  1. How come I missed this post? I LOVE your hair, not even jokin. It looks so freakin healthy!:) x

    1. Thank you so much hun, that truly means a lot to me **Big hugs**
      Before New Years it wasn't as healthy as it could have been, this was due to growing it and not looking after it, but since having it cut and using shampoos/conditioners with no nasties, the condition has improved immensely. Just to note, I use Naked Skin hair care and should really do a review post on it soon
