Summer Evening Eye Make-Up

Today I thought I would share with you guys the summer evening makeup look that I wore recently for some food/drinks with my friends! The weather was absolutely gorgeous and I knew I didn't want to wear a lot of heavy make-up, so I opted for a more natural look and this is what I came up with.
I'm just going to be chatting you through my eye makeup in this look as my face makeup always stays the same so if you want to see how I do that you can check out one of my other makeup looks HERE!

(P.S Please excuse the mess that is my eyebrows, I'm trying to grow them out and avoid plucking them)
I started off by priming my eyes using the SIN Champagne Shimmer Primer from Urban Decay. I still have four different tester primers from my naked palette so I'm slowly making my way through them. I apply this all over my lid and all the way up to my eyebrow as it leaves a nice shimmer and can act like a very subtle highlight on the brow bone!

Judging by the picture above, you can see that when I first put the eyeshadow on, it looks a mess! I took the brush that comes with the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette and using the thin smaller end, applied the colour Tease all over my lid and into my crease. For anyone who is scared of blending or applying eye-shadow, this is perfect for you! I honestly don't even concentrate on what I'm doing I just slop on as much of the colour as I want, not bothering to keep it neat because the blending will do all the work later on!

As you can see, it looks a lot better blended. I avoided blending the colour on my lid as I want to keep that quite strong, but in my crease I made sure I blended the colour out. I took the bigger fluffier side of my brush and just moved it around in quick circles moving up and down the crease!

I was skimming through Pinterest the other day, and I saw a lot of make-up looks that had a shimmer colour on the lid, and a darker matte colour in the crease and I thought I would give that a go. Once I'd blended out the colour Tease, I took the colour Chopper and applied this all over my lid. Again, I didn't bother to keep perfectly neat as I plan to blend this out as well. 

 As you can see, blending always saves the day. I just roughly blended through my crease using the fluffy end of the brush. I did contemplate leaving the look like this, but I just couldn't not wear any eyeliner!

Instead of using my usual liquid black eyeliner, I went digging through my make-up collection and found a brown eyeliner pencil. I was actually quite surprised by how much I liked this eyeliner as it went on in quite a creamy consistency and was really easy to use. Usually, I do a cat flick as I have quite small eyes so I like to enhance them in any way that I can, but I was feeling brave so I just lined my top lash line and bottom water line to keep things quite natural!

The final product I used was my trusty Maxfactor Masterpiece Mascara. This has been my favourite mascara for years and I still love it. It's just so good!

And this is the finished look!
I actually really enjoyed having a more natural makeup look and I feel like the brown eyeliner worked quite well with my green eyes. It felt perfect for a relaxing evening with friends in the sun! Let me know in the comments if you like this look and whether this is something you would consider wearing!

    1. Thank you! It's a Fujifilm FinePix XP70 (I think!!) haha, I got it because it's an under water camera one and I wanted one for when I went on holiday last year, but it's still pretty decent for regular pictures! :) xxx
