A couple of weekends ago I went out for dinner and a few drinks (and ok maybe a boogie too!) in South Kensington with some friends. Back in September I’d bought this navy, lacy and slightly sparkly lowcut back dress from Trafaluc by ZARA so I decided a blue smokey eye would accompany this look perfectly.
Face: MAC Select Cover-Up Concealer (under the eye & to conceal any blemishes) // Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in the shade Desert Beige. This is very much a ‘stay-in-place’ kind of foundation and I love wearing this when I’m going out. It provides great smooth coverage and stays on perfectly all night long! // MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Light // NARS Laguna Bronzer to contour // MAC Well Dressed Blush on the apples of my cheek
Eyes: Urban Decay Primer Potion (as a primer to ensure my smokey lasted to the wee hours of the morning) // MAC Wedge eyeshadow to fill in and accentuate my brows // NARS Copacabana Multiple - applied over entire eyelid right up to my brows as a shimmery base // Estee Lauder – Pure Color Eyeshadow Duo in Clouds using the light blue colour on the inner corner of my eye until about half way and then applying the darker navy on the rest of the lid and working up into the crease/outer V and blending in the socket towards the brow // MAC Wedge eyeshadow – I used this a little bit to soften the socket/crease to blend it all together // MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack along the waterline and upper lashline // NARS Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara applied (top & bottom) after curling my eyelashes
And to finish off my look. Lips: Ciate Lipgloss in St Barts (I got this for free with the July Marie Claire Magazine)
See here the Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow Duo in Clouds that I used for this look and swatches of the eyeshadows in the palette. Very pigmented, long lasting and quality eye shadows!
