FOTN - Satin Taupe Smokey Eyes

Second post from me today - I'm on a roll. Can I just say I am SO happy today as I have reached 500 followers. It means so much to me that people actually read and more to the point like my blog. I plan on doing another Giveaway when I have a few more pennies as a thank you. I am going to Australia next month (post on my exciting plans coming very soon) so I will try and squeeze one in before I go or maybe I'll wait until I get there and find some Aussie gems to give away. Anyway, I thought I'd just share the makeup look I wore when I worked at a new bar in Newcastle last weekend. It was such a fun night and everyone looked so gorgeous and glam. I haven't done many of these 'FOTN' posts as my makeup always seems to look rubbish in pictures. My camera picks up every tiny little imperfection so I always feel a little bit self-concious uploading close-up pictures of my face. Anyway, enough rambling from me.



Face -
MAC NC20 Foundation
MAC MSF Natural shade 'Medium'
NARS Laguna Bronzer
MAC Gold Deposit Highlighter

Eyes -
Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil - Dark Brown
MAC Satin Taupe eyeshadow (Currently loving this!)
MAC Carbon Eyeshadow
MAC Feline Eyeliner
Collection 2000 extreme 24-hour eyeliner
Blink & Go Mascara
Eylure False Eyelashes (I've used them a few times so they look a tad messy!)

Lips-
Avon Mystery Mauve lip liner
MAC Hue lipstick

Heres me and my friend Georgia on the night!

As you can see, I'm a bit of a MAC addict and I find a lot of my go-to makeup is MAC. I'd love to find some high-street alternatives though, especially a foundation. So if you have any recommendations, please leave a comment below.


I hope everyone had a lovely fun-filled weekend.


Lots of Love..


Kayleigh

  16. Hey girl! Love this make up look! You look so great! I am also a MAC-aholic, I love my MAC liners and eyeshadows more then anything. I did just recently get a new foundation, I am really picky with my foundations they have to be full coverage yet not too cakey..and I found a nice one by Smashbox..its the High Definition Foundation..I haven't tried it out for real yet, but am contemplating doing a post on it. It seems like it will be an amazing foundation though due to the swatching I did @ sephora, so i'll have to get back to you on that!
    Also, your eyebrows are perfect! You should do a post on how you fill them in because I don't know what it is about me but I suck @ doing my eyebrows! haha!

  28. I adore the way you've done your eyes them look incredible, I'm still practising the smokey-eye myself but I just have to wait until I get a job and then I'll be able to get the better products, as the ones I have aren't exactly amazing.
    Love your blog, keep up the good work. Do you have any advice for getting followers as I haven't any but try my best to get my blog out there, it's just not working though. xx

    1. Aw thank you very much! You don't need expensive products to do this look, you can get any old grey/black and it will look similair!
      As for the followers, don't be down-hearted. When I first started my blog, I had no idea how the whole following thing worked. The best thing to do is just communicate with other bloggers, follow their blogs, tweet about your blog and generally just put hard work and effort into your posts! I will follow you now :) x x x.
