Tonight, I am going out for my Grandad’s 74th birthday meal. We’re going to a Pierre’s restaurant, so I thought I’d share with you my getting ready to go out routine!
I don’t get many opportunities to dress up, but I love it, so I’m just going to go for and if I’m OTT, then I don’t care. The dress I’m going to wear is a khaki green, mid-length one with a netting over the top of a shorter under-skirt. I saw it in H&M and absolutely fell in love. It was £25, reduced to £11, and when I took it to the till it had been reduced even more to £4! £4!!!!! I know.
Make up! My fave bit. I’m going to be using my Tarte Rainforest of the Sea foundation, just because it’s more shimmery and a fuller coverage for a night out, rather than my usual daily Rimmel.
Powder is so important on nights out, because the evening shine on the forehead is never a good look. Also, I find that the smile lines are much worse with a full coverage foundation, so the powder just sets them a bit.
Evenings out are a great excuse to go completely overboard on the shimmery eyeshadow. And I am not holding back. This is my W7 Palette (which I feature in my every day make up routine). The sparkly pink and champagne shades are always a must.
Eyebrows are also equally as important (possibly the most). My Collection brow powder is a life saver and I just love it’s effect and I will love it forever…
Onto hair! And I decided to go for a wavey look by lightly curling it with my tongs. This never usually works, but when it does it looks better after a few hours when they’ve fallen a bit.
