Evening Make-up ….


I recently attended a preview evening of an art exhibition in St Ives.  This is the make-up I wore on that evening.

After my usual skin preparation I applied a recently purchased product from By Terry. The Cellularose Brightening Serum is a great product for brightening and luminising the skin prior to foundation.

On top of the serum, I used the Great Skin Foundation in shade 300 Beige from Beauty Pie.  This foundation gives great coverage and is very long lasting.

I used the Smashbox Photo Finish Under Eye Primer and then the L’Oreal True Match concealer under my eyes (Shade Ivory).


Eyebrows next, and I am currently using the Superbrow Precision Pencil in shade Baked Brown from Beauty Pie, and then set the brows with Eyeko’s brow gel.

On my eyes, I used an Essence palette 01 Glow For It.  Using all four shades on the left of the palette.  These are great shadows that blend easily and such an affordable product. I used the dark brown shade as an eyeliner on the top lid.


On my waterline, I used Urban Decay’s Waterline Eye  Pencil in Mood.  This is a dark grey.


Mascara is my current favourite from Benefit, the BAD gal BANG Mascara.  I absolutely love this mascara – great if you like thick lashes.


Bronzer is from Hourglass, Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Diffused Bronze Light.  The Perfect shade.   The blusher is from the Body Shop 02 Coral, which also contains a highlighter.

Finally, the lips were outlined in Beauty Pie’s Moisture-Lock Wonderful Lip Liner in shade Reckless Red.  The lipstick is also from Beauty Pie in shade Pin Up in the satin finish.

Hope you like the look.  Quite a simple look with a bold lip.


Lots of love, Gail xxx
