Night Life

Hello Lovelies!

for todays post ill be going through the look I posted last night on my Instagram
Its super easy and I absolutely love this look! 

First off for my base I used Mac Studio Fix in NW20
(photo courtesy of the Mac Cosmetics website)
I don't have my own photo because I smashed the bottle and its now in another container and it doesn't look pretty :(
I really love this foundation, I find that I get that typical oily zone during the day and I can never get my foundation to stick on my cheeks! I find that this really works for me, it gives great coverage and stay all day!

Next I contoured with Sleek MakeUP contour and blush palette

(purchased via Luxola)
This is honestly the best palette!
I used only the dark bronze to contour, as i wasn't going anywhere fancy, but usually I would also use the darker brown under my foundation
I use this with an angled blush brush :)

For my blush I used Australis BFF's blush in truth & dare
(available at Priceline and Kmart)

This is a really a real cute blush
Iv really smashed out the lighter pink colour to the right, I thought I was using them evenly but apparently not! Im definitely happy i got this beauty

To set my foundation and lightly blend my blush and bronzer I do a light dusting of Innoxa pressed powder in Translucent Suede

This beauty I actually got from Bella Box! Its one of the best things I have received from them. 
I didn't use it at first. When I did I started using it with the little round pad it comes with over my bb cream, but THEN when I got my Mac foundation I started to use it as a setting powder. 
It works well both ways :)

The Chi Chi Cosmetics eyeshadow palette in Nudes has been a favoured product for a while now, its featured in my August Favourites post :)
The colours I used were the first as a base all over, then the second which is a darker pink just on the lower lid. I created a V with my fluffy blending brush with the second last colour, and then I used the 4th from the end colour to blend in with the darker colour..
If that makes sense?

I lined my lids with the BYS Black Magic eyeliner
Its a gel consistency which I have been loving!
I have tried many eyeliners (pencils, pens and liquids) and none of them area as good as a gel... In my opinion!
I like to line the top lid and then line about 1/3 of the bottom kid and smudge it a bit

My lashes are coated generously in Benefits They're real mascara
This stuff is SO GOOD!
no clumps, no mess, no fuss!
super easy to use
I like to old it at the base of my lashes and gently wiggle it to the sides as i glide it up, it helps to coat the lashes, lengthen and they never clump together! If thats not what you want for a mascara, then I don't know what is!

My brows have become a feature that if I don't do them, I actually feel naked. Anyone agree?
I use the Silk Fibre Brow Enhancer

I got this when I was at Beauty Expo Sydney this year, it was one of the best purchases I made!
the colour I use is Blonde, now my hair may be blonde (not naturally) but my brows are darker, I tested out a few colours and funny enough the Blonde was perfect! 
And when I apply it it does look darker if I apply more product
I keeps them looking natural but fills in all the little gabs

Last but not least is the Chi Chi Viva La Diva lipstick in Turn Me On
This is the first dark lipstick I have purchased, and I must say. I LOVE IT
Its such a beautiful dark plum colour, and the texture is so creamy
The only downside is that it does bleed a bit, but thats easily fixed with a lipliner!
(I will be posting a Lipsticks and Liners post soon)

Thats the look!

I hope you enjoyed reading :)
