'The Night Out Prep'

Ok so I have now had an unacceptably long break from blogging whilst settling in to uni, which by the way is incredible. I love the people I live with, the course I am doing, the people on my course, the city I'm in and basically just everything. Since arriving I have been trying to just focus on being here and taking everything in so I decided that my blog would just have to wait. Until now! I'm back and I have missed typing away on my keyboard so expect to hear from me in between my lectures and events from now on. 

Over to today's post! Seeing as there has been a lot of partying and going out these past few weeks I have found that I tend to do more or less the same little beauty routine every time, and as it has been working really well so far with keeping my skin clear, hydrated and glowing all day and all night I figured it was only right to share it with you. 

Stage 1: The Prep 10 minutes with Origins Drink Up Mask makes sure my skin is hydrated and soft, then a quick cleanse with Liz Earle's Cleanse & Polish and a blob of Benefit's Triple Performance Facial Emulsion and my face is ready for Stage 2: The Base.

Stage 2: The Base A drop of MAC's Strobe Cream mixed in with my well loved DiorSkin Nude BB Cream makes for a gorgeous glow and flawless finish that's perfected with some Studio Finish Concealer for any redness. Benefit's Hoola Bronzer and Rockateur Blush make the perfect combo for a bit of contouring and colour.

Stage 3: Eyes My favourite part, including two new discoveries that has revolutionised my eyeshadow routine. A quick, thick line of Rimmel's Eyeshadow Stick in Bad Girl Bronze blended together with Rimmel's Eyeshadow Paint  in Rich Russet makes for the easiest smokey eye ever. Add a bit of a warm brown, such as this one from Dior's Grège palette, to add slightly more definition then some mascara and you're good to go once you have your brows set. For that I swear by Benefit Brow Zings especially for night out's as it has incredible staying power. 

There, that's that. A bulletproof look that will stay on and look good all night - none of those horrendous pictures where your eyeliner is on your cheeks and your eyebrows have melted together into a mono. I hope you liked this post, if you did please go and follow my blog on Bloglovin' and you won't miss my next post :)

Love, Em
