Face of the night! Before and after photos!

Last night I went to see Josh Groban in concert, I know, I'm wild!  I've been a huge fan of his for over ten years now and have been to see him every time he came to Dublin.  Well, when Joanne and I heard he was playing at the O2, we set up one of our military operations when it came to booking the tickets and managed to get front row seats!  So we went along last night with Ms. CherrySue and had an absolute ballfest!

Of course, when one is going to be in such close proximity with Mr. Groban, one needs to look the part.  So I thought I'd do a little before and after face of the night and show you what products I used.

This is why I need make up!
I decided to keep it simple and managed to do this look in about ten minutes with these few products.

Garnier BB Cream, Garnier 5 Sec Perfect Blur, Bourjois Volume Glamour Max Holidays mascara, Bourjous Cream Blushes, Stila Eyeshadow Trio Gold Glow, Estee Lauder Tempting Tearose lipgloss.

Because it's summer, I've been needing to use a primer to keep the shine down, so went for the Garnier 5 Sec Perfect Blur which created the perfect base for my Garnier BB Cream.  Of course, one needs to have defined eyebrows, so in stepped my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz.

Left to right: Bare face (eek!),  primer & BB cream, eyebrows filled in.
Next it was time for the eyes.  I used a baked eyeshadow trio I bought from Stila a couple of years ago but is still available to buy.  I might do a review on it soon as it's gorgeous and has a dark bronze shade, a golden shade and a shimmery champagne colour that work beautifully together.  That, combined with my Bourjois Volume Glamour Max Holidays mascara left me with a beautiful bronzey eye that is so wearable and made my eyes look very green altogether!

I needed a bit of blush, so out came my trusty cream blushes from Bourjois.  I used a blend of shade 01 and 02 to give a peachy natural cheek that complimented my eyes.

A quick slick of my Estee Lauder Tempting Tea Rose lip gloss and I was good to go, ready for Joshy!

And that was it!  A quick and easy makeup look that anyone can do.  I was going to film this as a video but didn't have enough time, famous last words!  If you'd like to see make up tutorials like this on YouTube, let me know and I'll do my best to film them!


  1. LOVE how the bronzey Stila trio makes your eyes stand out. I'm also really surprised at the coverage of the BB cream!

  2. Perfect!!! I haven't tried any BB cream yet *hides* but just might go for that one and it's so affordable. I also love the fact you used so few products. :)

  3. You look very pretty Karen! I'd love an eye make up tutorial, yours is always done so nicely!

  4. I want those blushes!! You look fab, never would've thought that was BB cream, great coverage without being cakey.

  6. Fabulous! Must get that BB Cream! It seems to have pretty decent coverage. I'm not too fond of heavy foundation myself and usually only wear concealer!
