Day Twenty-One: Night Club Makeup

I’ll admit I’ve never been to a night club before but when I was doing this look I knew it had to be shimmer and big lashes. I got to test out the gem lashes I talked about in the post More Adventures In Discount Shopping! :).

1. NYX HD Studio Photogenic Foundation #02 Soft Beige

2. Garnier Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller

3. Rimmel Stay Matte Translucent Pressed Powder

4. Pür Minerals Glow Bronzer

5. Philosophy Lit From Within Healthy Cream Blush in Feel Warm All Over


1. e.l.f. Eyelid Primer

2. NYX For Your Eyes Only Smokey Eyes Palette

3. e.l.f. Diamond Lash Palette

4. NYX Collection Noir Liquid Black Liner (upper lashline)

5. Too Faced Size Queen Mascara

6. L’Oreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner in Black (lower lashline)


1. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream #06 Istanbul

More Target Shopping

My boyfriend and I stopped by Target again and surprise surprise I bought a few more products. I picked up 3 e.l.f. matte lip colors, Rimmel lipstick, and another e.l.f. brush.


L to R: Rimmel Pink Blush, Rich Red, Praline, and Coral matte lip colors.

I can’t wait to wear that rich red lip color! Oh hell I had to try it out.


Love it!


Golden Eye

Today is my golden eye post and I don’t mean James Bond :). I purchased NYX Glitter Mania Loose Pigment in Hot Gold. I couldn’t wait for my next night out to try it so I did it today on my day off. I also paired it with a bright coral lip to really make it pop. Let me know what you think!



What I used:


Skin79 VIP Gold Super B.B. Cream
Skin79 Luminous Pearl B.B. Cream as a highlighter
Maybelline Fit me! foundation #225
ULTA Blending Sponge
Pür Minerals Glow bronzer
NYX blush
e.l.f. bronzer brush
Eco Tools powder brush
Rimmel Stay Matte Translucent Pressed Powder


Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow in Khaki Suede
NYX Glitter Cream in Gold
NYX Glitter Mania Loose Pigment in Hot Gold
NYX Every Color Imaginable Palette
NYX Liquid Black Liner
Sally Hensen Sexy Curves lash curler
Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara in Jet Black


eos smooth sphere
Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick in Coral Crush

I highly recommend when using the loose glitter to wet the brush first before you dip the brush in glitter for less fall out.

Hope you enjoyed!
