Date Night Neutrals

As much as I love experimenting with colours & the majority of the makeup looks on this blog have been colourful, on a daily basis I tend to favour browns (that's if I'm wearing eyeshadow at all). Usually if I'm in a rush but want to wear some eyeshadow, I grab a dark brown eyeshadow & blend that into my crease with a large blending brush & I'm done!

Then there are those days where I still want to keep it neutral but I wanna look good!
This is the makeup look that I did on one of those kinda days. It's a great look if you're going on a date night with your girlfriends or even with a special someone because we all want to look hot on date night but not overdone - I mean, we're not going out; just dressed to impress.

For the eyeshadows, I used a large blending blush to apply MAC eyeshadow in Cranberry in the outer two-thirds of my crease + on my browbone + on my lower lashline (you could only see a hint of this colour depending on the lighting). I then applied Senna Cosmetics' Glow Eye Colour in Flare on my entire lid + inner corner of the eye + whatever was left on the brush under my brow. Lastly, I took BH Cosmetics' eyeshadow in MM17 on a smaller blending brush & blended that into the outer two-thirds of my crease + outer one-third of my lower lashline.
I finished off the eyes by applying a liquid eyeliner, mascara on the top & bottom lashes, tight-lining, & filling in my brows (using Senna Cosmetics' Sketch-a-Brow pencil in Mink) ever so slightly.

For the cheeks, I used Too Faced's Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer to contour my cheekbones, temples, & jawline. The blush I used is Barry M's Blusher in BL1 - Pink Orchid.
Lastly, for the pout I used one of my fav lip products at the moment: Senna Cosmetics' Lip Lacquer in Mulberry.

I also wanted to take a quick moment to thank everyone who has encouraged me to get back into blogging or even just asked about why I've been such a bad blogger. It's because of those comments & chats that I'm motivated to get back to blogging, so THANK YOU & lets do this.

Kisses to all of you!
