Make-up, Hair & Outfit: Party

Hi Everyone!

I hope you's all had a lovely weekend. I was lucky enough to be off work the whole weekend which was brilliant and I had my friends 18th Birthday party on Saturday night. It was a great night so I thought I would do a kind of 'Get ready with me' post. Enjoy!
This is how my hair & make-up turned out.
Make-up

Face
To start off, I obviously moisturised my skin using Neutrogena visibly clear pink grapefruit moisturiser. I then applied my favourite primer which is the photo flawless primer by 17. I then decided to use my revlon colourstay foundation as it has great coverage and staying powder which is great for a party. To apply my foundation I used my beauty blender. The concealer I used for both blemishes and under my eyes was Collection's lasting perfection concealer which I blended in using my fingers. I then dusted my Rimmel stay matte powder all over my face to make sure my foundation stayed in place. For bronzer I used NARS lagoona. I used it to contour and to give myself a bronze glow. The blush I used was Spice from NYX. I applied this to the apples of my cheeks and blended toward my temple.

Eyes
For my eyes I of course I cracked open my MAC palette. The first colour I chose to use was Naked Lunch, which I put all over my lid. I then smudged Wedge into my crease to give some subtle definition. After I blended that out I placed Brun onto the outer corner of my eye to achieve a more smokey look and blended until there were no harsh lines. I then used a white kohl eyeliner by Barry M to highlight my inner corner. After that applied Loreal's super liner onto my top lash line and winged it out slightly to elongate my eye. To my lower waterline I applied my favourite black kohl eyeliner which is Maybelline's master drama liner. I also smudged that into my lower lash line, concentrating it on the outer half. To my lashes I applied masterpiece max mascara from Maxfactor and that was my eyes done.

Lips
For my lips, I wanted something that was about the same colour as my dress so I decided on Lustering by MAC. It was the perfect colour.

Hair

I decided I wanted to go for wavy hair for a change since I usually wear my hair either straight or up. Firstly I used Loreal Elnett satin heat styling spray to protect my hair. To achieve the wavys, I used two different curling irons. They were both by Babyliss just with different barrel sizes, one was 25mm and the other 38mm. I also done a half french braid with the front section of my hair just to keep it out of my face. I secured the braid just behind my ear using a hair grip. (A half french braid is when you only add hair from one side instead of both.) I finished off my hair by coating it evenly with hairspray. I used Tesco's maximum hold hairspray - it is very good and very cheap.
