It's always good to have a girls night out and forget about men dramas for a bit! I went out for dinner and drinks with a few of my girlfriends, here is what was involved...
Mary Lou Manizer
Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in 'Smitten'
Essence Dark Romance Velvet Mousse Blush in 'Red Romance'
Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Eyeshadow in 'Ebloui'
Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express Mascara (not pictured)
Face of Australia Liquid Liner (not pictured)
I really like how I managed to throw in a few more high end products in with my usual drugstore goodies. The blush is a recent purchase and I am in LOVE! It feels so light weight and blends like a dream. I was blown away by the amazing quality of it. The colour looks a bit scary in pan, but it blends out to a gorgeous red-berry tone. The eyeshadow is also new(ish), I've had it for a while but this is the first time I used it. It's a lot softer than the Maybelline Color Tattoos so I find it easier to work with. The colour is sheer, but buildable, and this one has quite a lot of shimmer. It looks a little bit more cranberry coloured in pan, but it comes out as a more brown based colour. I think I'll be able to wear this a lot! As for the balm stain, I love the gorgeous deep pink it is (brighter than pictured below) and it has really good staying power.
And here is the finished look! I based my makeup around my outfit choice, more specifically the red wine/plum coloured top I was wearing. My drinks for the night also matched ;)
Thanks for reading! Oh, and just a heads up - this weekend, I'm going away to Taree for 2+ weeks to do my uni prac. My schedule will be very busy so I probably won't be able to blog at all, but afterwards hopefully I'll have some exciting topics for you xx
