Special Occasion Makeup

ani1

This Saturday marked my 3 year anniversary with my boyfriend which firstly is a pretty big achievement and secondly was the perfect excuse for me to get dressed up and dip into that huge makeup collection of mine. The party season is upon us and this look would be perfect whether your going for a meal with friends or getting glammed up for your christmas party!

I started off with my usual base of Smashbox Photofinish Light which is an absolute must for oily girls and then applied MAC Studio Fix Fluid in the shade NC37 with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush. Studio Fix is long wearing and photographs brilliantly meaning it is my go to foundation for a night out.

For my under eye area I used Bobbi Browns Porcelain Peach Corrector with Rimmel Wake Me up concealer in Soft Beige to highlight my cheek bones.  I then started on my eyes using MAC Satin Taupe  eye shadow all over the lid,blending up to the crease and slighltly winging out. Using the same shadow I then dragged the colour onto my lower lash line to create a smoky effect,I have mentioned before my love of a good smokey eye and as saturday was a special occasion I added a pop of blue to mine using Maxfactors Saphire Rage shadow onto the lower lashline over the Satin Taupe.

For lashes I kept it natural, I have really gone off strip lashes recently and am embracing my natural lashes. I used my lash curler from MAC and then applied N07 Extreme Length Extend Mascara. This mascara added length but didn’t add much volume so I added some Model Co lash fibres to add some additional thickness.

Now that my eyes were complete I moved on to contouring using MAC’s scuplting powder in the shade dark,  this is one of MAC’s newest products which I have mixed reviews about- I will post a full review for you soon! I blended my contour with Mac Mineralise Skin Finish in Medium and on my cheek applied Benefits Coralista Blush topped off with MAC Global Glow highlighter on the cheek bones.

As I was going for a meal I kept my lips natural using MAC Myth lipstick and Lipglass in Prrr.This look would work equally as well with a brighter shade, my choice would be Sleek lipstick in Mystic or MAC Girl About Town.
