Day to Night - My Go To Makeup

Glitter, Gold and Glowing!   If I had to describe my go to makeup in three words, the description above fits the look perfectly.

Glitter, Gold and Glowing!


If I had to describe my go to makeup in three words, the description above fits the look perfectly.

I am a magpie. To me, Edward Cullen is skin GOALS. I love sparkle, I won't lie to you, it makes my insides tingle. I am a shimmery fairy princess that would bathe in gold if I could. 



You are Gold, always believe in your soul


My daily makeup routine is somewhat similar to the one I follow on a night out; I just tone it down a little! There isn't any glitter involved, just glow. I try to stay clear of liquid bronzers/highlighters in my daily routine, sticking to powdered products as they are quicker to blend when I have ten minutes to get ready in the morning!

A pair of lashes will transform any makeup look. They can make any look go from Day to Night. Sometimes if I'm feeling adventurous (less lazy) I like to wear them in the day too.

On a night out my face becomes a canvas I spend hours on. I drive everyone nuts, and there is no such thing as me getting ready at a friend's house. You'll see me at pre's only boo; I need a huge mirror, a desk full of products and pure concentration.

I change the products I use often, but if I find favourites I tend to reach for them more.

Products I will usually use on a night out in order:


Brace yourselves...
  • Smashbox Photo Primer
  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer
  • Too Faced Chocolate Bar Shades White Chocolate (To set primer) Salted Caramel, Milk Chocolate, Semi-Sweet, (In the crease) Triple Fudge (On the lower lashline) Creme Brulee (On the lid after cream eyeshadow is applied)
  • Maybelline 24 Hour Colour Tattoo in Shade Eternal Gold
  • Barry M Dazzle Eye Dust in Shade Bronze
  • Topshop Gold Glitter Liner (Lower Lash Line - Inner Corner)

5 Top Tips: 


Always do your eyes first, especially when using glitters. The fallout can damage your foundation and will leave you looking crusty AF. I like to use tape to sharpen those cat eyes!

Stay cool! I will layer my setting spray after I finish each section, it'll keep you refreshed and will stop your makeup from drying out or coming off.

Blend Blend Blend. I don't spend the time caking on all sorts; I use it to blend blend blend. The key to makeup is a steady hand and patience, The more you blend, the more seamless the products will look. 

Coat those lashes. You may think mascara and lashes are too much. As a real glam worshiper, I believe mascara makes falsies look more realistic, connecting your natural lashes and false wispies together!

Double up. For any liquid, a powder shall follow. On a night out you want your makeup to last, through anything from sweaty nightclubs to the Jaeger bomb you just dribbled. After I apply liquids such as highlight or contour, I will always follow with a powdered product to bring the colours out and avoid any makeup mishaps.

Voila! Both my daily and night makeup involve bronze shades I can't get enough of. Gold tones make my green eyes pop; the trick is to find the right colours for you and stick to them.
