Blogmas Day 23: Get Ready With Me-Casual Night Out!

Tonight myself and Kevin went to another panto take-off in town which was pretty terrible but anyway! I took some pics of me getting ready that I thought I'd share with you. If you have any questions let me know. Also, let me know what kind of posts you like coz I'm definitely going to blog more in the new year.

Make Up

Step 1: No Make Up!
So obviously before you put make up on you have to have none on :P

Step 2: Moisturise!
For this I used the Aldi beauty cream mentioned in a previous blog post that you can view here! I just dotted it over my face and blended it in until it was gone. This doesn't take long to dry too which is a plus.

Step 3: Foundation, Concealer and Eyeshadow Primer!
I blended two types of foundation here to get the perfect colour. The lightest colour is Rimmel Match Perfection in 201 Classic Beige and the darker colour is Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour in 201 Classic Beige. I blended these together and used my Real Techniques Expert Face brush to apply it. Then I used my Collection concealer in 4 Deep on any blemishes and used my foundation brush to blend it in to my skin. Then I applied Essence's I Love Stage Eyeshadow Base to ensure my eyeshadow would stay on for longer. I love this product! Then I used my Rimmel Stay Matte powder in 006 Warm Beige to help set my foundation.

Step 5: Eyeshadow!
I used the Naked 2 Palette by Urban Decay for tonight's look. I applied the colour Tease all over the lid first. Then I used Busted in the outer corner and blended it into the crease using a clean fluffy brush. Then I used Half Baked very lightly all over the lid and blended it all out to get rid of any harsh lines. Then I applied some Benefit They're Real Mascara which I did a whole review on here!

Step 6: Eyebrows!
I used my Wet n Wild Eyebrow Pencil to outline the shape of my eyebrows. I very lightly traced around the outline of my eyebrows. Then using my Catrice Eyebrow Kit, I filled in the rest of my eyebrows.

Step 7: Contour, Blush and Bronzer!
I used my Sleek Contour Kit in Light to contour my cheek bones. Then I used NYC Cheek Glow Blush in 652 West Side Wine. I then finished the look off with a little bit of Essence's Sun Club Brunettes Bronzer in 02 Sunny.


Step 1: Clean Hair!
Ok so I just washed my hair and let it air dry for about an hour before I took it out of the bun.

Step 2: Hair Products!
Before I brushed my hair, I used the Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance Leave-In Conditioner, Avon's Advance Techniques Anti-Breakage Spray and then finally Tresemme's Salon Silk No Frizz Serum.

Step 3: Brush!
I used my tangle teaser to brush my hair to get rid of any knots and make my hair nice and smooth.

Step 4: Dry!
I blow dried my hair upside down to get  more volume. I also continuously brushed my hair while drying it to avoid frizz. 

Final Touches!

To finish off my look, I put on my outfit, ran my GHD over my hair to get it smooth and silky and added some Kate Moss for Rimmel lipstick in 107.

Hope you guys liked this post. Please let me know what you thought of it and if you'd like me to do more.

2 Days til Christmas :)

Keep Stylin' and be Festive!
