Simple Evening Makeup



After christmas and new years, its nice to have a more simple neutral look you can resort to in the evenings without thinking glitter and red lips. Don't get me wrong I love a good bold lip, however the maintenance can be a bit too demanding at times so I'm going to share with you the look I've been going for when the evening antics approach.

For the face I like to have a good coverage, dewy finish and for that I love to use the L'Oreal True Match Foundation £9.99. My last post was a full blown review on this so instead of rambling I'll link that up here. I also added a bit of the Origins Plantscription Concealer £17 for some added coverage under my eyes and anywhere else I needed it. I skipped powder and went straight for my Nars Laguna Bronzer £26 for some soft contouring and colour. Then for highlighter I went for my trusty Benefit Watts Up £24.50 which I blended on my cheekbones, nose and cupids bow.
I wanted to keep my brows fairly natural too but still defined so the Benefit Gimme Brow £17.50 it was. I love this stuff because its a gel, so it will keep your brow hairs in place, but its also tinted so adds colour, definition and an element of volume.

For my eyes I picked up my favourite matte palette of the moment, Charlotte Tilbury The Sophisicate £38. This is a gorgeous matte palette and feels very luxurious to use too. I simply took the lightest highlight shade all across the lid up to the brow bone then popped a bit of the light brown beige on the lid. In my crease I used the second darkest brown and then added the final shade, which is a grey brown to further define. I also used the darkest shade under my eyes, almost as a liner. Speaking of liner, on my top lash line I did a simple small wing using the Soap and Glory Supercat Liner £6 which is my favourite affordable liner out there. Its super black and easy to use and i've had mine for a good few months and it hasn't dried up! Finishing the eyes off I added a few coats of the L'Oreal Miss manga Mascara £8.99 to my top and bottom lashes.

Finally I kept the lips nude, but with this look the lip colour can be changed depending on what you fancy. Of course I opted for MAC Patisserie lipstick £15.50 which is my perfect my lips but better shade.
