So this week has been pretty high pressure so I was excited to go out to a party on Friday night with the boyf and friends.  Getting ready was pretty rushed.  Especially because I had to factor in washing my hair, which at the moment I can do nothing with.

I went out looking like the second picture.  In a black dress rather than the pink fluffy dressing gown!  I don't really know why the "before" picture is necessary but I was messing around on my new MacBook so there it is!

I used:-

  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in Tawny mixed with MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in NC30
  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powder
  • Bare Minerals Bronzer in Warmth
  • Coastal Scents Blush in Coral and Pink mixed
  • Various MUA Heaven and Earth E/S Palette shades with lots of blending
  • Revlon Fabulash Mascara
  • Kate Moss for Rimmel shade 01 Lipstick mixed with MAC Lipstick in Ravishing

It felt really odd to put all the makeup on as I haven't been out for ages!  Also, I attempted to put on false eyelashes (which I used to use ALL the time) but it RUINED my eye makeup on my left eye and I couldn't get it to stick so I had to start all over again! STRESSED!

Can't believe I can't put false eyelashes on again!  Anyone else have this problem or just me!?  Thankfully I managed to save the look in the end!


  1. you look gorgeous! xx

  2. you look STUNNING! Loving the makeup! I go through phases of not being able to apply false lashes lol x

  3. You look gorgeous!! I love seeing before and afters :) I am fine with putting falsies on other people but just not myself, I get all fingers and thumbs and then it ends up wonky :( Practice makes perfect though I suppose! xx

  4. I love how false eyelashes look, but good God they are hard to put on. You look gorgeous. Hope you had fun at the party.


  5. i am always useless at putting eye lashes on. it makes me not bother as i always manage to spoil my eye makeup in the process xx

  6. You are crazy pretty! Gorgeous!! xxx


  7. Stunning make up, you look so pretty. Have always meant to check out MAC Mineralize powders - are they still available or were they limited edition? i'm such a cosmetic noob! x

  8. That lip combo looks lovely!! I've been meaning to give the new rimmel kate stuff a shot since its launch, must get around to it soon. I'm rubbish with false lashes too :(

  9. Thanks so much ladies for your lovely comments!!

    @Temporary:Secretary - I think so, I only got it around 2 months ago in Selfridges in Manchester. The MUA who served me acted like it was a normal powder. I think only some of them were limited from what I can find online!! x

  10. Wow!! You really did a great job. You look so beautiful!
