A little smokey purple look!

Hey lovelies,

So I've been super busy with coursework and work recently but it hasn't stopped me from getting excited about Christmas! I love November and December, its my favourite time of the year. Between the 20th November and the 7th December we have four birthdays; both my 5 year old nephews, my dads and mines! I love it because it means I get to see my whole family so much between birthdays and Christmas which makes November/December the love of my year! 

Anyway, the only thing with being so busy is I haven't had a chance to get dressed up and have fun with my make up. I've been wearing the same everyday make up look every day for going to Uni and work or wearing nothing in the house studying. However, last Sunday I decided to go do some shopping and check out Burger Meats Bun for the first time with Andy and I deliberately decided to do something new!

The main focus was to try out my new beautiful Nars Guy Bourdin cheek palette *sigh* *eyes flutter*


(Prepped/primed with La Roche Posay Effeclar Duo) 

Maybelline BB Cream for Oily Skin in shade Light mixed with Clarins Ever Matte in shade 103 Ivory

Collection Illuminating Brightening Concealer in shade Naked 1 (under eye)
Collection Lasting Perfection in shade 1 & 2 (blemishes) 

Nars Laguna (contour/bronzer)
Nars Mistinguette (blush)
Nars Devotee (highlight)
Rimmel Stay Matte in shade Translucent (jawline/t-zone)


Benefit Brow Zings wax
HD Brows powder in shade Foxy


Collection Work the Colour eyeshadow pencil in shade Gunmetal Glitz 2
Mac eyeshadow in Satin Taupe (all over)
Mac eyeshadow in Beauty Marked (outer V)
Benefit eyeshadow from World Famous Neutrals in raincheck (crease) 
Benefit eyeshadow from World Famous Neutrals in blingo! (highlight/inner corner)

Models Own pencil eyeliner in Black (tide/water line)
Rimmel Scandaleyes liquid liner in Black (fine line into the lash line)

Benefit They're Real Mascara


I thought the look was quite sixties so I wanted a matte nude lipstick but I didn't have anything nude enough so I used the nude Rimmel Scandaleyes pencil eyeliner rubbed in with Mac Hues over the top. 

Additionally, I use all Real Techniques brushes, except for my brush from the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette which I used for blending!

I hope you like it, if you could think of anything that would improve it or if you have a high street dupe for any of my high end products I've love to hear it, please comment below! 

Ps here's a cheeky pic from Burger Meats Bun, my BBQ pulled pork was sensational! Andy is raging because he was starving and having to wait till I took pictures *evil laugh*
