My Go-To Evening Make Up

Hey beautifuls, I hope you're having a fab week so far! Last weekend I went to Norwich to celebrate my best friend Lydia's Birthday. I've been to Norwich a number of times for shopping but never for a night out, I'd definitely recommend, we had a great night! Nothing beats a night out with your nearest and dearest does it? As we were getting ready I realised that I've not done an evening make up look here on my blog, I've done an everyday look but not one for an evening. When I go out I like to make my eyes the main focus with lots of mascara and a smoked out, gold/bronze eyeshadow. I apologise that the picture quality isn't the greatest and I couldn't get one of my eyes due to the lighting but you honestly have no idea how hard it was to try and find decent lighting in our hotel room (damn you dark nights!) But there'll be a post of my peepers soon I promise! 
♥ Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer to conceal any redness around my nose
♥ L'Oreal Lumi Magique primer mixed with MAC Studio Sculpt foundation in NC35
♥ MAC Pro Longwear concealer to conceal my under eye area, prime my eyelids, highlight my forehead and down the bridge of my nose
♥ MAC MSF in Light, I only applied this along my t-zone as I was aiming for a dewy look this evening whereas on a daily basis I'd use this to set my under eye area
♥ Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in blonde
♥ Bobbi Brown bronzing powder in Golden Light to contour my nose, temples and sculpt out my cheekbones
♥ Chanel Jouse Contraste powder blush in Accent
♥ The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer to highlight my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, tear duct and brow bone
♥ Makeup Revolution 'Smudge' in crease
♥ Makeup Revolution 'Gold Digger' all over my eyelid
♥ Urban Decay Naked 2 'Snakebite' in my outer V and smoked out
♥ Urban Decay Naked 2 'Blackout' applied very thinly and lightly along my upper lash line
♥ Boots eyelash curlers. A little trick I do here to make your eyelashes look 10xs longer is I curl my lashes, apply mascara, leave to dry and curl again very lightly. Do be careful though as you can pull out your own lashes (yes I've done it on more than one occasion and it kills!)
♥ Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express mascara on upper eyelashes
♥ L'Oreal Telescopic mascara on bottom lashes
♥ Maybelline Line Refine kohl liner in white
♥ Babor maxi definition lip liner in the shade nude
♥ YSL Rouge Volupté Opera Rose
♥ NYX Xtreme Shine Lip Cream XLC10
There's my go-to evening make up! I do change my eyeshadow colours every now and then but 99.9% of the time I keep everything else the same :)
Do you use any of these beauty goodies?
