Last night I was on a ladies night, which is a great excuse to get on the glad rags and a full face of my favourite makeup.
I created the look below with some my tried and tested products (although reading this back, I realise that it’s mainly ABH and Huda Beauty).
I moisturized as usual with my Charlotte Tilbury Miracle Cream, and then primed with the Huda Beauty Matte Perfection makeup base.
I mixed a couple of the Iconic London original highlighter drops into the Huda Beauty Faux Filter foundation in ‘Toasted Coconut’, and using a flat top kabuki I worked on blending it out. The over achiever concealer made another appearance in this look in ‘Coconut Flakes’, and I baked with Easy Bake Loose Powder in ‘Pound Cake’. The scent of Huda can be quite intense if you are using a lot of the products, so if you are not a scented kind of person, then be warned about that.
I decided to get out the ABH Sultry palette, as I haven’t played with it for a while.
I primed my lid with some of the concealer I’d already used and then packed and blended the shade ‘fresh’ all over the eye (up to the eyebrow). I then deepened up the crease with the shade ‘twig’ and blended it out. Using a dense packing brush, I put ‘dystopian’ in the outer corner and inner corner, to create a halo eye in the middle of the lid. Using my finger I popped cinder in the middle and blended it out with the dystopian shade. I used ‘noir’ on the very outer corner, and added more impact to the centre with ‘cyborg’.
I used the Wet n Wild black kohl pencil in my water line and smudged it out. Keeping it simple.
I used Lash Paradise from L’Oreal on my lashes. I didn’t add any false lashes as I’m giving my lashes a break at the moment.
My brows were filled in with the Benefit Gimme Brow pencil. A trusty favourite and so easy to use.
To contour, I used the ABH Contour palette and highlight was a mix of Wet n Wild Mega Glo Highlighter in ‘Blossom Glow’ and the Jeffree Star Supreme Frost Highlighter in ‘Wet Dream’. I hit the high cheeks, the tip of the nose, between the eyes and Cupid’s bow. Blush was NARS blush in ‘Lovejoy’.
I used the Wet n Wild lipstick in Mochalicious with a Huda lip pencil (a dark brown one).
For Christmas, I got the limited edition prep and set from MAC with the light glitter particles, and so I tried that. It gave my skin a lovely glow with a little sparkle, which was perfect.
Overall, I am really happy with my look and I got lots of compliments about how velvety my skin looked. I sometimes find the Huda foundation a little cakey, and so by mixing it with the Iconic London drops, it gave it a smoother consistency.
I hope you liked the look! What are your goto ‘night out’ faves?
