Warning: this post contains a lotta base make up, not for the faint hearted.

We all want our skin to look flawless on nights out whether we be hittin the clubs, attending a house party or going on a fancy date. Of course, not all these products are necessary but for some people (*cough* me) it takes a hella amount of product to make their base look flawless, so I thought id share a few of my favourites.

First off, primers: I have three of my favourites here which I, shamelessly, use in conjunction with each other when I'm going out at night and really want my make up to last. The MAC Strobe Cream is more of a moisturiser than a primer and gives you a very glowy and dewy look. I then like to layer a bit of the Gosh Velvet Touch Primer to give my skin a silky feel and a poreless appearance. Then lastly I use the Bare Minerals Prime Time Neutralising Primer counteract any redness I have on my skin and to give it a slight tint, meaning I use less foundation. The foundation I have been reaching for on nights out is the L'Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation as I find it lasts forever on my skin and doesn't separate out or fade. However, I'm not too keen on wearing it during the day as there is just something about it I don't like - I really cannot put my finger on it, but I'll keep you updated about how I get on with it. Next up is concealer, I use the MAC Prolongwear concealer under my eyes mixed in with a little bit of this lighter concealer from a random concealer palette from eBay. Then to set that I use the Laval Setting Powder which is super pale, giving me that Kim K contour. To set the rest of my face, I use the MAC Studio Fix Powder which adds a hint of extra coverage.

I know this is a lot of make up and im sorry if ive made any BB/CC Cream gals cringe at the thought of 3 primers, 2 concealers, 2 powders and 1 foundation.





The trick that will have your lashes going from 1 to 100 real quick.

We all want our lashes as black as our souls and as long as the list of people we hate, but some mascaras just do not deliver, instead giving us spidery, clumpy lashes - or worse, the dreaded one lash syndrome, ie mascara sticks all lashes together, cannot separate lashes, attempts to separate with mascara wand, more clumping.. You can see where this is going. This trick helps to avoid ALL of that - giving you perfect lashes all day, erryday.

You will need: tissue paper, mascara

All you have to do is use the tissue to wipe off any excess product in the mascara wand. Often how much you take off depends on the formula of the mascara: a more watery formula will need more product taken off the wand than a dry one. I prefer to sort of wiggle the brush inbetween the pieces of tissue to get almost all of the product off as then I can really build up my mascara to the fullest, but clump-free look! 

The mascara I have used is the Rimmel Wonderful Mascara as I hated it when I first got it as the wet formula led to my lashes looking awful but now I love it!

Thank me later gals,


Recently, I have veered off the nude matte lips path and jumped on the timeless glossy lips band wagon. With the Kylie Jenner lip colour craze, glosses had taken a backseat in my daily make up yet in the past few weeks I have rediscovered some of my favourites.

One of my favourites includes this lipgloss from Model Co in the shade Strip Tease, a pinky peachy nude with a trace of shimmer running through it and a seriously high gloss finish. The shimmer is barely noticeable on the lips but adds to making your lips look extra plump and juicy. This gloss does have a little tackiness to it, but it isn't unbearably sticky. It wears well too; no odd patches and it doesn't make your lipstick underneath look weird too. I usually pair this gloss wih L'Oreal's Lip Liner in Beige À Nu - the perfect combo for a glam glossy nude lip.
