My Summer Date Night #GRWM

It feels like an absolute age since I last did a GRWM post for you all so a few weeks ago I thought I would put one together whilst getting ready for a casual date night out with Paul for food and a film...

I have always been a fan of Mac’s Strobe Cream, however, every winter it seems to find its way back into storage and takes a while to make a reappearance on my shelf in the bathroom. Lately I have been lightly applying a little bit of this to the outer cheekbones at the same time as applying primer (Rimmel’s Lasting Finish) to my issue areas. To finish my base off I applied Rimmel’s Wake Me Up Foundation and Concealer, setting the Concealer in place with a spritz of Urban Decay De-Slick on my Beauty Blender.

Powder wise I used a thin veil of Bourjois Healthy Balance and a bit of Soap & Glory’s Solar Powder to warm my pasty looking face up a little.  Before cracking on with my Sleek Face Form Contour Palette I brush a little of the Mary Lou-Manizer highlighter again to the tops of my cheekbones, inner eye corners, tip of my nose and cupids bow. I adore this product so much as it just leaves a nice sheen on the skin and it isn’t too heavy on the glitter.

First of all on the cheeks I put Max Factors Nude Mauve Creme Puff Blush, blending this out into the  temples and then adding the tiniest little sweep of Illamasqua Thrust Blusher to the apples for a bit more colour.

At the moment I seriously seem to have the oiliest eyelids ever (open to primer suggestions) so I’ve not been going to mad with the old eye shadow because in all honesty it would be a waste of time and effort. Instead I have been using the bronzey Bourjois Colorband pencil for a chunkier line on the lid and then just putting a little Benefit Roller Lash through the upper lashes only. Not only does this give a much lighter look and thanks to the highlighter in the inner corners, a much more wide awake look than I would normally sport. As always I added the Soap & Glory Archery in Hot Chocolate through the brows for a more defined look.

Hair wise in all honesty I didn’t particularly do anything special and I had already dried it fairly straight so after running my GHDs through it and a quick spritz of Got2b Dry Oil for a bit of gloss, I simply pinned it up a little at the back (because it has got to that annoying in the way stage).

Finally I went for my cherished Mac Soar liner all over the lip, because it really is my lips but better and was perfect for this ‘I woke up like this, honest’ look.

When it came to the outfit I wanted to be comfortable and as we were going to the cinema, warm. So I through on my trusted Superdry Chino Shorts and Next Batwing Jumper. All boxes ticked.

I really do hope you enjoyed this post and the revamped look of my blog. I would love to hear what your ‘I woke up like this’ essential products are below along with any eye primer suggestions and I look forward to catching you again soon, until then though x
