So last week my Mum came for a visit and me, her and Nick went out for a lovely dinner and a few cocktails. I don't often get the chance of late to dress up and slap some fake tan on so I jumped at the chance to put the effort it...
I knew I was going out on Friday and with the Sun shining so brightly last week I went on a bit of a mission to find a new dress that was bit more Summery based around a pair of shoes I've been eyeing up for a couple of weeks ;)
I bagged this gorgeous Chiffon cream dress for a fiver, yes, FIVE POUNDS from Primark and gave in and purchased the shoes from New Look for £25. Jazzed it a little with a Stella & Dot Chevron Pave Ring and Christina Link Bracelet!

My face was purely based around the Smashbox Pore Minimising Photo Finish primer which I tried at the Smashbox Beauty Bloggers Event (read about it here) and ended up buying it when the sample ran out! I stuck with my regular Beautiful Matte foundation by No7 and even though it's matte anyway, it looked even more matte with the primer and for the first time - possibly ever - I went out without face powder caked on my oily skin! I was nervous don't get me wrong, but I think it looked so much better with no powder and just contoring with Seventeen's Contouring Kit (which I also used as a bronzer on forehead and jawbones) and Make Up Revolution's blush. Smashbox did it again for the Smokey eye using their Full Exposure pallett finished with the Collection Extreme Eyeliner felt pen and Bourjois holiday mascara! Lips-wise, just a little of the Rimmel 107 dabbed onto them.
(Chucked on just my black blazer with leather sleeves over the top)
Didn't do anything to fancy with my hair, just back combed it a little at the top with a Lee Stafford back coming comb (which I spray hair spray onto first) and put some hair oil on the ends to make them a bit softer and shinier!
Pretty simple but as I was having a good make up and outfit night, I had to take a few sneaky selfies!
