I wanted to try out the sample of the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk 7.5 that I had picked up the previous week, even though I have already ordered the full size (John Lewis Price Match!). I am absolutely amazed by this foundation, having been blessed with having smooth and fairly even skin I don't find foundations to need an amazing coverage so they don't tend to wow me. However, this foundation makes me look flawless, I was (am) amazed. I will definitely be reviewing this once I try it a bit more.
I wanted to have a slightly smoked out eyeliner and applied the Sleek Twist Up Eyeliner as an eyeliner and used the darker shade from my Nars Cordura Duo to smoke it out. I didn't account for the fact that the eyeliner was so creamy and it moved all over the eye, I ended up with a black smokey eye which is something I've never tried before. I mostly use browns and blacks in the outside corner of my eye for a smoked look rather than all over. I popped a bit of the lightest colour from the Nars Isolde Duo in the inner corner of my eye to brighten the eyes a tad. I have to say that despite it being an accidental makeup look I really liked it, I'l definitely be doing it again - on purpose.
Finally I decided to try something other than my go to red lipsticks and went for this neon orange lipstick from Topshop named Infrared. I bought this about a year ago when orange lips were a big trend and I found it was far too creamy to stay on my lips, I also felt kind of awkward and washed out in the orange colour. Pairing it with this smokey eye has made me feel a lot more confident in wearing orange, I think that I'l definitely be incorporating this colour into some of my daily makeup looks.
Finally I had to take this excuse to break in my Bertie Boots and get a bit more confident in wearing the heals. I'm surprised by how comfortable they were considering that they have a heal and the grippy sole made me feel like I was floating when I walked. I'l definitely be wearing these tonnes from now on.
This post is a bit unusual for me as the eyeshadow look, lipstick and boots are not my usual style. Hence 'out of the comfort zone' but I am surprisingly extremely glad I went all out this evening. It made me feel a bit less down and has given me confidence to wear things I wouldn't usually!
Would you wear an orange lip?
