Night Out #11

Another day... another bronzey eye, but WAIT... plot twist! Funky blue gradient bottom lash!
I've had these pictures saved as a draft for a pretty long time now - something just keeps stopping me from posting it - but ho hey, why not?
For base I used the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 7.5 - for some reason this foundation doesn't work on my skin the way it used to - I used to rave about how amazing it was, but now it just sits on my skin without sinking in - can you tell from the pictures? I followed it up with the MAC Prolongwear Concealer in NC42 and set everything in place with my Ben Nye Banana Powder - after wanting it for years, I can say, it does brighten - but I'm not a fan of how matte it leaves my skin, almost making my undereyes look a bit.. crapey.
For Bronzer, I used my Bobbi Brown Matte Bronzer in Dark and blended it to my cheeks. Because it's a reddish brown, it works very well as a subtle blush as well.
For my brows I used the same thing I've been using for over a year now and just it pan on; the Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade in Ebony.
For my eyes, I used MAC's Bronze eyeshadow all over the lid, and MAC's Woodwinked in the inner corners. As for the interesting bit, I used MAC's Chromographic Pencil in Hi-Def Cyan on my waterline and blended it below.. to top it off, I used Urban Decay Chaos (electric palette) and blended it out with Urban Decay Fringe. I then used Fringe to create a wing from the lower lashline upwards and add some definition to the upper lashline. L'oreal False Lash Architect 4 D Waterproof Mascara finished up the eyes rather nicely.
Finally, for lips, I used MAC's Twig lipstick.

I was rather pleased at how this came out, what do you think?


  1. I love the pop of blue on the waterline! Loving the bobbi brown bronzer on you..need to try that next time!

    1. Oh, you should! However, I think Deep is a nicer colour to Dark.

  2. That pop of blue, so awesome! I have similar issues with the Ben Nye powder (I rather like the matte finish) but for my face I like to finish with a spritz of plain old rose water, and it turns into a lovely, luminous finish! (I have the Dabur one; the glycerine in it seems to help as a finishing spray!)

    1. I like the Matte finish for under my eyes too! I've been using the NYX setting spray, but for some reason, it still looks crapey. Maybe I'm just getting old..
