This look is perfect for a date night, girl’s night out or a wedding guest makeup.

– Foundation is Revlon colour stay applied with a real techniques stippling brush.

– I applied Ben Nye translucent powder in topaz under my eye for a slight highlight, then Ben Nye powder in chestnut all over my face to keep my make up in place all day.

– For my eyes I used a black jumbo pencil as a base, then I applied Mary Kay navy blue every shadow on top. I applied a mid-tone brown in my crease to blend it all in, then a black eyeshadow in the outer corner for definition.

– I made sure I blended it all in then I used my golden shade highlight powder from my sleek contour kit as a brow bone highlight and in my inner eye corner to open up my eyes.

– I used my favourite mascara then strip eyelashes from eBay to complete the look.

– For blush I used raisin by Mac and pink lipstick from Fashion Fair.
