Smokey Eye & Nude Lip: My Weekend Makeup Details!

makeup 1

Happy Sunday guys! How is your day going? Chilling by the fire I guess? That weather out there is horrible!

On Friday night I headed out with some friends to celebrate one of the lads birthdays and after I posted a picture of my makeup, a lot of you said it was your favourite look to date. Thank you for that!

As result, I am now blogging about all of the products I used to achieve the look, so here you are!


TIP: I used my SoSueMe Brushes for this makeup application which you can purchase here. 


My trusty Chanel Vitalumière in 40 mixed with a new foundation I am trialing at the moment by Maxfactor’Skin Lumizer’ in Bronze – I actually really like it 🙂

Skin base: This week I wore the Wow Skin x3 way illuminator under my foundation and I really liked it


To highlight and contour, I used the CrownBrush Corrector palette and you can read more about it here.

I then used some inglot 96 concealer to conceal under my eye – love this concealer, its so thin and silky!


To set the foundation:

As usual, I used the Fuschia Mineral Foundation in FAWN. You can read my review on this here.


I used theBalm Hot Mama – it’s a gorgeous rose/gold tone!

Highlighter on cheek bones:

I used my Mary Louminzer by TheBalm

I also used some MeMeMe shimmer brick. This is €12 or something and it’s brilliant, it’s a total dupe for Bobby Brown Shimmer Brick!


As always, Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow. You can read my review here.

To set the brows, I also used some Benefit Gimme Brow in Medium/Deep. This stuff is amazing for keeping your brows in place, you can read my review here.

I have also filled in my brows with some of my HD brows Palette for extra definition.



I used my inglot eyeshadow palette in the following colours:

Transition Colour: 314 (light peach)

Lid Colour: 121 (sparkly cranberry)

Crease Colour: 605 (Dark rich burnt orange)

Outer V on eye: 329 (dark brown)

Brow Bone: 393 (light cream)

Under-eye: 121 & 329



Rimmel Glam Eyes – LOVE this liner! You can get it from Penneys for €5.99

Waterline Liner: Crown Chubby Eye pencil in Dark Chocolate, the colour pay off is really good (you can get them here for €5)

Mascara: Benefit They’re Real mascara, read my review here


Lipstick: NYX Summer Love 617 / Liner 854 pale pink

Gloss: Very Voluptuous Lip Plumper by Victorias Secret  – this stuff is AMAZING

FullSizeRender (6)

 And there you have it!

Happy Shopping!
