Full Glam / Night Out Makeup Go To’s
Hello my lovelies! So recently I’ve been having a few evening events / nights out, on these nights i love taking my makeup a bit more ‘full glam’. I love adding a few extra steps or using more heavy duty products that i know will last the whole night. This all prompted me to share with you my go to’s for a full glam look. Keep reading for more…
With full glam makeup you need it to last the whole night (and early hours) so a good primer is a must. I’ve raved about the Primark Stay All Day Primer loads here on my blog so I won’t bore you again.
Of course foundation wise i love something super full coverage my holy grail is the Milani 2in1 Foundation and Concealer. It has the most beautiful flawless coverage that lasts all day(night in this case), goes on like a dream and photographs really well.
Concealer wise I love using the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer as it’s full coverage but it’s not heavy and doesn’t cake up in my eye area. I love using a shade that is 1/2 shades lighter to highlight as well as conceal.
Full glam wouldn’t be complete without contouring. On nights out I always opt for cream contouring as it’s that little bit more heavy duty and defined, my current go to is the Makeup Revolution Pro HD Cream Contour Kit in Fair. It has every shade I need including some great shades for highlighting/concealing and a yellow tone for correcting.
My favourite part of a glam look is a popping highlight. I love layering a liquid and powder highlight to give me that extra glow. The Revlon Skin Lights in Bare Light is a lovely liquid illuminator that adds such a beautiful glow to the skin, I sometimes even mix this in with my foundation if I want to go all out. For powder highlight I love the Sleek Highlighting Palette in Cleopatra’s Kiss. These highlighters are super blinding, I often pair the cream ones as eyeshadow bases too.
Eye wise I love a smokey bronze look, my favourite palette for this is the Morphe 35T Palette paired with the Essence I Love Stage Eyeshadow Primer is a match made in heaven. Lashes wise my favourites at the moment are actually the Superdrug False Lashes Natural Edition 14 (not pictured) , i picked these up when they were on offer and fell in love, i now have 2 in back up. They are super wispy and full but still look natural. The glue is crap but if you use your own glue ( i use Duo) then you’re set.
I’ve not really included any thing lip wise as i don’t tend to do anything different lip wise and i’m always heading to the bathroom for touch ups. However if i go heavy on the eyes i’ll go lighter on the lips and visa versa.
