saturday night makeup look
today's listening 15th june; klaxons, atlantis to interzone (crystal castles remix)
Nothing makes me feel more ready for a night out than knowing my makeup feels pretty. Saturday night makeup is a big deal for me, and when you're going out you want to feel like you're confident in what you wear, irregardless of whether you're popping to your second home for a comfortable drink or two, or heading out to the club for a party.
This is my Saturday night look this week and it's pretty simple to do, but might take a little time if you wanna keep layering up the eyeshadow - it really depends how far you wanna take the drama. So I used one of my favourite Estee Lauder palettes which is called Film Noir and it retails at £35. I've had this palette for a year or so and it's the one that I *always* reach for to take with me because it's just so easy to do a soft grey smokey eye using it. My base in this look is by MAC and it's called Genuine Treasure, it was a limited edition one that I didn't really rate much at the time and still don't much now, but it does make a soft glittery base for this kind of look, so I grabbed it for this. I then finished off my eyes using Benefit's They're Real mascara and Urban Decay's 24/7 eyeliner in Gunmetal on the inner waterline.
My face has Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation mixed with Illamasqua Liquid Foundation so it suits my skintone and covers nicely but without being too thick. I like this Bourjois foundation but it can be a smidgeon too dark sometimes so mixing it with the paler Illamasqua one helps. My blusher is Estee Lauder Powder Gelee in Tease which is genuinely my favourite blusher of all time. No joke. It's beautiful! My eyebrows are the shade Faint from the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette and my lips are MAC Hue, nice and nude. This look is perfect for a Saturday night, and it's how i'm about to go out, right now! What do you rock on a Saturday night?
