How are you all? I hope you’ve all had a great week so far. I’ve been pretty busy this week. I went to the cinema yesterday to watch Toy Story 4 & then I went out for some food afterwards with my lovely boyfriend. It was nice to do something fun after a long day at work! On my blog today I wanted to share with you all a date night look which I created using mostly all affordable products. I really loved the look in the end so if you want to know how I created it then just keep reading.
Step One – Base
To prime the skin, I first went in with the L’oreal Infallible primer (£8.99). I love this one for a smooth base at the moment. After this, on a beauty sponge I applied the L’oreal Infallible Fresh Wear Foundation (£10.99). I’m obsessed with this foundation at the moment as it gives me both dewy skin & coverage.
Step Two – Eyes
For my brows I used the Benefit Brow Zings palette (£27), which I know doesn’t really come in the region of affordable products, but I don’t have many options when it comes to my brows as I tend to stick to the same thing. I used Collection Lasting Perfection concealer (£4.19) on my eye lids as a base for eyeshadow. I then went into the Revolution Reloaded Provocative palette (£4) which I recently picked up! I love Revolution eye shadow a lot, the palettes are amazing yet really affordable. I set the concealer on my eyelid using a cream coloured shade. I then went into a light mauve shadow (4th on top row) and applied this all through my crease with a Morphe s27 brush. I packed on quite a lot of this colour, then I went into a darker mauve shade (1st on top row) and deepened up my crease with the more precise Morphe s12 brush. With the same brush I applied a small amount of a deep mauve/purple shade (5th on top row) onto the very outer edges of the eyelid. Once I was happy with all the blending, I added some NYX glitter primer (£8) onto the centre of my eyelids. With my finger I then applied some of the Colourpop x Kathleen Lights Zodiac Loose Pigment in the shade ‘The Scales’ ($8) on top of the glitter glue. It was my first time using this one & I am so obsessed now!
To complete the eye look I created a wing with the Wet N Wild Proline Felt Tip Eyeliner (£4). I applied some Eyeronic False Lashes in the style Merida (Discontinued) & Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara (£8.99)
Step Three – Finishing
With a Morphe s4 brush, I applied the Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer (£4) under my eyes, down my nose & on the centre of my forehead. I then set my face using the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder (£3.99) with a big fluffy brush. I then went into the Zoeva Contour Spectrum Palette (£18). With a Morphe s13 brush I used the cool toned contour shade to carve out my cheek bones, then I used the bronze shade to warm up the face a little. Next I took a Real Techniques contour brush and applied Max Factor Creme Puff Blush (£8.99) in the shade Lovely Pink. For highlight I used a mix of the pink & white shades from the Revolution x Soph highlight palette (£8) on a Morphe s26 brush. Finally, I applied Colourpop x Zoella Ultra Matte Liquid Lip ($7) in the shade @ Me.
And that’s the completed look! What do you think? Have you tried any of these products? Let me know in the comments below.
