The Friday Night Face

Last Friday night, Yeah we danced on tabletops, and we took too many shots, think we kissed but I forgot. Okay, Katy Perry moment over. This was a bit of a thrown together look and I did that skanky make up on top of make up thing – I know, I know, you should always cleanse and start again, but after a boozy lunch and the need for a quick turn around, I didn’t much care. I’d been to MAC that afternoon where my friend Polly had her make up expertly done by the lovely Rubey (there’s a pic on my instagram) and I was inspired by the bronzed skin and strong eye.

Eyes first. I already had MAC Satin Taupe on the lids, I went over with a medium brown to add some more definition then dusted half baked from the Naked palette all over the lid and along the lower lash line give a beautiful bronzy eye. I wanted strong, precise liner so I reached for Bobbi Brown Gel Liner Black Ink and MAC 266 angled brush. I did a strong upper line from the inner to the outer lash line, with a tiny flicks, then smudged the excess along the lower lash. Lashings of Chanel Volume de Chanel (review here) to finish off.

Base. I was in need of some colour and didn't have time to tan, so I cheated with Chanel Soleil Tan bronzing make up base. Rubey used Studio Sculpt Foundation on Polly, which I haven’t used for a while and every time I do, I forget how much I love it. Some people find it heavy, but it’s super creamy and luminous, and used only where it’s needed, it doesn’t look at all cakey.  I did a quick highlight/contour using MAC Pro Sculping Cream in Pure Sculpture beneath the cheek bones, underneath the chin and the sides of my nose and added a highlight with MAC Prep & Prime Highlighter in Light Boost to foreheard, bridge of the nose, under and around the eyes etc. I set the base with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish and my new favourite brush, Sephora Mineral Brush (review here). I wanted a bit more colour so I went back over with Guerlain Four Seasons bronzer... and looking at these pics, maybe I was a little heavy handed... oh well! Finished off with a pop of colour to the cheeks in the form of Nars D**p Throat.
Brows. It’s all about the brows!  I filled in the spare patches with HD Brow Palette and thickened and set them with my new, and much loved Benefit Gimme Brow (review here).

Lips. Looking at these pictures I should have gone with a nude lip, instead I picked up a trusted pale pink – Wet n Wild Think Pink. I lined my lips first with MAC Naked Liner so it would last longer... and boy did it!
I added a boost of radiance with a good old spritz of Caudalie Beauty Elixir and I was good to go dance the night away with Jocelyn Brown. Video link for those too young remember... and a treat for those old enough to know. TURN.IT.UP!

    1. Hi totally agree, I wouldn't wear it for daytime, but when I'm getting ready for a night out, this is always my go-to x

  8. THE FRIDAY NIGHT FACE really looking aswome. I've said it over and over that to come across as attractive is about you and not the outfits you use. Think about it, keep the outfit you seem on dressed in out at the front side of you and what does it say, that's right "nothing." Now slide the outfit over your shapes and see the modification.
