Make up look for a girlie night out!

On Saturday I was heading out to dinner and drinks with two of my best pals and had to get dolled up of course.  I coloured my hair and you can read that post from earlier today where you can see the before and after shot!

Of course, much make up had to be applied on a girlie night out.  So I thought I'd show you what I used.  I started out with using Garnier's BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector which I'm absolutely loving and you can read more about that here.  I applied it using my new Real Techniques Expert Face Brush that I'll talk to you more about later this week.  I am in love with it and the two of these products together make me happy.
Next it was time for eyes and I used my YSL Dessin Des Sourcils eyebrow pencil to shape my brows.  I used  the two matte shades, Naked and Buck from the Naked Palette on the eyes.  I had to use my YSL Dessin Du Regard eye pencil in Azure Blue on the waterline and finished off the look with a thick coat of Maybelline Illegal Length mascara.


This was the result so far!

It was time for cheeks and I picked up this Sleek blush in the shade Suede from Cloud10Beauty.com last week and love it already.  I'll be reviewing it shortly so stay tuned but basically, it's a gorgeous neutral shade that gives a lovely hint of colour on the cheeks.  I used this with the Contour Brush from Real Techniques as that was new too and I had to try it out!
Finally I slicked on a now discontinued Clarins lipstick and I was ready to go.  Any light peachy apricotty lipstick will do and this was the one I had to hand.
And now for the scary before and after shot!  Let the record show that the Azure Blue pencil lasted from 5.00pm until 2.00am and that was with a lot of eye watering laughs!

We'd a lovely dinner out in Malahide and went to Ciao restaurant overlooking the Marina.  Gorgeous food and I only spilled one thing on myself, go me!  Drinks were had in Gibneys around the corner and it was a brilliant night altogether!

Did you get up to any shenanigans over the weekend?
