Night at the theatre makeup



After a long hiatus, I’m finally back! On Friday I saw Wicked for the first time, and what an amazing play that was. Needless to say, I have been singing ‘Defying Gravity’ in the shower ever since.

The eyeshadow I used was from the Jaclyn Hill Morphe palette – a mixture of a rich almost plum colour and a taupe-y brown. I adore this pallete, and Youtuber Jaclyn Hill, so I’ve been tending to reach for it quiet often! I also wanted to step out of my neutral-colored rut which I’ve been in, although I apparently didn’t stray too far.

I did my stock standard winged eyeliner using the Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Black Ink, on a cheap drugstore brush which I swear by but don’t know the name of! oops.

On my face I used a mixture of L’oreal True Match and L’oreal Lumi Magic on a damp beauty blender. I mixed equal parts of these two foundations to get the colour to match my neck (I bought the wrong shades of both, but luckily they are perfect mixed together!)

When I go out I tend to favour a harsher contour than I do on a day to day basis, so I used the bronzing shade from my Sleek makeup palette. This sleek palette has a few shade rangers for different skin tones (I bought the lightest one) and features a beautiful bronzer, blush and highlight shade. The blush I wore on this night was my old favourite – Benefit’s Dandelion blush. I’ve been on a roll reaching for this stuff practically everyday since Christmas!

I finished the look with Mac’s Myth lipstick (not shone), which is a gorgeous, much loved pinky-nude, a perfect pair for any bold eye. I love the fact that this nude shade is pink based, rather than brown!

And on one final note, I apologise for my wet hair in the photos! Sometimes my hair gets neglected when I get carried away and luxuriate in doing my makeup!
