FOTD: Date Night Beauty

This is just a very quick and unplanned post as I put a full face of make up on for the first time in over a week today (revision is not good for cosmetic use) and decided to take a few snaps before I left! I actually went for dinner with family but I think this makeup would be perfect for a date night or a meal out with friends so I thought I'd share it with you all. 

I started with my base, for some reason skipping my beloved L'Oreal primer and going straight on with foundation and concealer. As I hadn't applied my glowng-from-within primer I didn't set my face with a powder as the foundation I'm using at the moment leaves a really pretty dewy finish when left alone. I used a bronzer, blush and highlighter on my cheeks, before filling in my brows with one of the light brown shades in the MUA palette. I then went for a light creamy-gold powder all over the lid, particularly focusing on the the inner corners for a little extra glow, before adding a medium brown shade to my crease and underneath my lower lash line. A thin slick of liquid liner and mascara done, I then moved onto the lips where I applied my favourite new purchase; Rimmel's Intense Colour Rush Balm in Boom Chicka Boom.

Bourjois Delice de Poudre bronzer, MUA's Undressed palette, Topshop highlighter, MUA Lolly blush, Model's Own eyeshadow brush, Natural Collection liquid eyeliner, Primark mascara, Real Techniques Expert Face Brush, Rimmel 25 hour Lasting Finish foundation, Collection 2000 concealer, Rimmel Intense Colour Burst Balm in Boom Chicka Boom, Model's Own blusher brush

We were only going for a casual meal on the Quay at a gorgeous Italian restaurant called Da Vinci's, so I wore this blue and white cami from Primark, a statement necklace from Topshop and basic blue jeans and ballet flats to keep things fairly relaxed. Here is a picture of my Mum and I before we headed out!

I hope you all liked this post and it's perhaps given you some inspiration for an upcoming meal out or date night beauty look. I'll be back in the next few days with my round up of the best dressed ladies of the Cannes Film Festival and until then I wish you all luck if like me you're studying for exams; they will be over before you know it!
