| night out essentials

Thursday, 27 March 2014

Hey lovelies! Today's post features all of my favourite products that I always wear on a night out. I'm pretty stubborn when it comes to buying new make up, once I'm happy with a product I will stick with it forever, talk about loyalty! All of these beauties have never failed me in a club, which is saying something as there are some pretty sweaty clubs in Southampton (bleugh).

From left to right -

Natural Collection Loose Powder in Warm Translucent
Pretty sure I've mentioned this before, I've stuck with the same finishing powder for as long as I can remember! Such good quality for only £1.99, it never washes me out or cakes my makeup. And it never slides off my face during my night out, the evidence being once I get home afterwards my base still looks perfectly in place.

Lord & Berry Eye Pencil in Dark Black
This is my most recent addition to my going out stash. I usually completely avoid using eye pencils on nights out because with other brands I've simply ended up looking like I've had a cry in the toilets. However this one is long-lasting, smudges in a good way as I can blend out the line to make it look a bit more smokey and gives some nice definition to my eyes!

Seventeen Doll'd Up Mascara in Black
I've already mentioned this numerous times on my blog, because it provides a beautiful curl which holds, it's waterproof and doesn't smudge too badly if you let the formula dry a little between applying coats. It's perfect for my nights out because I can apply as many coats as I want without clumping and giving a spidery look and stays in place all night!

NYC Big and Bold Mascara in Extra Black
I love this mascara for nights out. Good at providing lots of volume with a minimum of two coats without weighing down my lashes, never smudges and also waterproof, it's a perfect combo with Doll'd up. It's cheaper than other mascaras that don't do half as good as a job, so it's a win-win!

L'Oréal Studio Secrets Anti-Redness Primer
I bought this way back in the summer holidays in France, but after discovering the Seventeen Photo Flawless Primer (which I've similarly mentioned a lot on this blog) I left this to the side. Recently however I started using this again and it's love! My skin is quite sensitive meaning my cheeks flare up quite easily, however this primer keeps my skin porcelain all night. You only need a small bit on the face though cause otherwise you may end up with a greeny tinge to your face! It also stops my foundation from sliding off in a hot club so thumbs up from me.

Bourjois 16h Liner Pinceau Liquid Eyeliner
Another new found love, since buying it back in January I have only reached for this on nights out. A flick on my eyelids has become my going out essential, my signature if you will. This stays perfectly in place without smudging all night, you just need to wait a little bit for it to dry completely otherwise hello random black lines at the top of your lids! The pigment is so good, it makes my eyes look so much bigger.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in Shade 51
I can't even count the amount of times I've mentioned this on my blog, purely because it's my favourite foundation when a heavier coverage is needed. In clubs this is a must, it keeps my skin looking smooth, radiant and even toned. Even if my body is sweating like a pig (not a nice image) in a packed club, my face remains pristine.

And here is the finished result!

You may have noticed that among my choices I have not included any lip products. This is mainly because I have yet to experience a lipstick that lasts longer than an hour! Lip stains are okay, but again all that I've used have little staying power. If anyone could recommend some long lasting lipstick for a night out I would be eternally grateful! Thanks for reading (: xx
