Galapagos Love for Date Night!

Friday night was a long overdue date night! It's actually the first date night that I have got ready without Esra as we dropped her off to my mamas prior to getting ready! All the other date nights were me getting ready with Esra and my mama coming over just before heading out which meant rushing everything.

This time I actually did my makeup and hair properly! *Hooray* :) I have a new found love for Nars 'Galapagos' eyeshadow which has been on my wish list for years, I am also loving By Terry's 'Touche Veloutee' under eye concealer, it's a must have for tired mamas and anybody that wants to look awake, worth the hefty £35 price tag!



Here's the makeup I wore:

Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich Foundation
By Terry Touche Veloutee Under Eye Concealer
Mac Sheer Mystery powder
Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzer
Mac 'Daft Pink' mineralised blush
Nars American Dream Eye Shadow Palette
Lancome 'Hypnose Star' Mascara
Jemma Kidd 'Earth' Eyeliner
Collection 2000 Extreme Felt Tip Liner
Mac 'Dervish' Lip Liner
Revlon 'Cupcake'lip butter'

(I even used fake lashes on the outer corners of my eye just because I had time to :) I cut the Ardell Demi wispies in half for a more natural look.)


I used the shade 'Galapagos' which is a bronzed brown with finely milled glitter all over my lid and blended it out, I used some of the other colours in the palette to add definition and highlight. The limited edition 'American Dream' palette by Nars is actually REALLY amazing and deserves a post of it's own. Swatches and comparisons coming soon! I will also be doing a before and after with the By Terry concealer just to show you how effective it is!

I wore my new dress from Topshop which I am in love with. It's so flattering and I love the deep red, maroon shade!



I teamed it with wedges, some brass jewellery and a white slouchy blazer.

Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!
