Piling it on!

Sometimes it's nice to go a little bit crazy with the make up (and by crazy I mean move away from the usual warm toned eyeshadow and peachy coloured lipstick rut, which I guess isn't really that crazy, but for me it's a little bit left field nonetheless!)

On Friday I went out to meet some of my girlfriends for a few drinks and a catch up and decided to go a little bit more dramatic than I normally would with my eye make up.  We're talking bluey toned eyeshadow and a lot of lash and eyeliner action and probably more bronzer than would be normally be acceptable in broad daylight!


  • Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation (see previous review)
  • Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer under eyes and around the nose, blended with a Beauty Blender sponge
  • Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel followed by Nars Laguna Bronzer to add twice the warmth! 
  • Hourglass blush in Luminous Flush
  • Kevyn Aucoin Contour in 'Medium' 
  • Set with Bourjois Healthy Mix Powder in no.5


  • Nars pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
  • Firstly, all over the lid I put Urban Decay 'Virgin' from the Naked 1 palette.  Next I used a big fluffy brush to put MAC Texture into the crease area and under the eye, followed by Urban Decay 'Gunmetal' (also from the Naked 1 palette) all over the lid,  blended it and popped a little bit of MAC nylon in the tear duct area followed by a little more Urban Decay 'Virgin' in the centre of the eyelid (applied with my finger tip) lastly, I lined the eye with MAC Carbon eyeshadow, top and bottom.
  • MAC eyeliner 'Smoulder' in the water line (top and bottom) and applied quite liberally!
  • Bourjois Volume 1 Second mascara in black (lots!)
  • Eyelure Lashes in Number 143 (split in half and added in the corners - รก la buynow/bloglater )
  • Eyebrows - Soap and Glory Archery in Blonde (dupe for Anastasia Brow Wiz)


  • MAC - Pure Zen
  • Chantacaille Lip Gloss in 'Lucky'

I really like the combination of this grey-blue eyeshadow teamed with something more warm toned like MAC texture but I feel if you're going for this type of look you definitely need to pair it with a fairly 'uneventful' lip. 

What are your favourite 'evening' make up looks or products?



  1. YES Lis you look like one hottie! I never really wear blue on my eyes but I actually did a FOTD on my blog a while back with navy eyes and I used MAC Kid (I think) to blend it out and I love that contrast! You're in my post today xxx

  2. I love this look! The eye makeup is beautiful. If you can't pile it on for a night out then when can you?! x
