Because we all love to get dolled up every now and again don’t we?
So this blog post has been photographed and sitting in a folder on my desktop for a few weeks now and I just haven’t found the right time to post it. But today is the day. This is a difficult kind of post to do because, I don’t go out much these days but I LOVE glam makeup and doing myself up, I mostly do it for blog pictures or YouTube videos since becoming a mama but still… Anyway I’m going to share with you all my top party picks for super gorgeous makeup that will last all night!
The perfect base;
For a full coverage foundation, that keeps my face matte and lasts all night, I love Estee Lauder Double Wear. I think this is my favourite foundation ever in terms of an all in one but for nights out and parties it’s perfect as it literally doesn’t budge and gives you such a flawless finish. I barely use mine these days but it’s simply because I just don’t wear makeup for very long and I don’t want to waste it as it’s like magic in a bottle! If I ever go out for the day where I will be out of the house for hours, I always wear this one as I know it will never fail me.
For the glow;
I love a glow on an everyday basis, but when I want to really glam it up, I reach for my Becca Highlight in Moonstone. I absolutely LOVE this highlighter and definitely don’t use it enough. It gives me such a pigmented glow in one swipe and the colour compliments my complexion so perfectly. I must pick this up in Champagne Pop now that I tan as I think that one would be just as gorgeous on me! Another product I love for the glow is the Makeup Revolution eye foil in Rose Gold, it’s the most beautiful inner corner highlight and you need this product in your life. It’s so affordable and lasts an age too!
On the eyes;
When I want to go glam with my eyes, I always reach for glitter or pigments. Both are incredibly beautiful on the eyes and really make a statement! My fave glitters are the ones in this little Romance trio from glittereyes, they’re all so pretty and look gorgeous in the centre of my lid on top of shadows. To keep my glitters in place, I use the NYX glitter primer, it’s really affordable and works a treat. A pigment I swear by is the Copper pigment from Mac, they are £16 each but I’ve had mine for years. They last so long as you hardly need to use any, mine is still full to the top almost! I absolutely love copper shades and this pigment is no exception, it’s stunning all over the lid as well as combined with other eyeshadows. Finally for the eyes, I love to add a pair of falsies as they complete any look. My favourites lately are the Amore lashes from Koko, they are so beautiful and add the perfect amount of glam without being over the top.
For a statement lip;
I’m really fussy when it comes to bold lipsticks but the one that’s been my favourite ever since last Christmas is Charlotte Tilbury’s Bond Girl. It’s literally my perfect red/berry shade, I am so in love with it. I’m SO excited for Autumn to get here so I have an excuse to wear it practically everyday!
So those are my top party picks, let me know what your favourites are!
