Who doesn’t love a date night? Whether it’s with your Boyfriend/Girlfriend or just a group of friends getting together one evening it’s always fun! As with most social occasions, the fun starts way before you leave the door in outfit choices and hair and makeup. I love getting ready and since I hardly ever go out (Nandos is not included in this) I like to make the most of it when I do!
This past weekend my boyfriend and I went to see a play – I love plays and he most definitely does not! I think it might have something to do with me forcing him to sit through two hours of my starring role as a penguin a few years back but I’m not sure. To make it enjoyable for the both of us I booked a table at Fazenda for food beforehand and it was delicious. The play was amazing as well; we went to see The Lovely Bones at the Liverpool Everyman and I’d highly recommend! But enough of that as I said earlier the fun is in getting ready so for today’s post I’m going to talk you through what I did to prep!
I actually started the day before and I washed my hair with my all-time favourite Garnier Ultimate Blends Coconut Oil shampoo, conditi0oner and hair oil. These leave my hair so soft which is why I wash my hair the day before so on the day I can style it and it stays in place.
The day off begins with a bath (obviously) with a bath bomb (even more obvious if you’ve read my blog before!). I used the Lush Butterball bath bomb which I’ve heard great things about as it is supposed to be moisturising however it just added little oil bubbles into the water and I didn’t find it to do much at all! In the bath, I used the Lacura Mud Mask which I have a full review coming on Sunday so I’ll spare you the details here!
Once out of the bath is where the real good stuff starts! I curled my hair using my year’s old wand and set it in place with Loreal Elnett which keeps my hair perfectly curled all night and into the next day! I used this opportunity to test out some of my new make up purchases and I was not disappointed! I think I have found my holy grail of bases – it Cosmetics CC Cream with Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter on the high points for glow. Oh my god, this looked so pretty it adds the right amount of coverage whilst still looking glowy and dewy. After going back to the CC Cream it is such a big difference to the other foundations I’ve been using – even blending it takes half the time as its so perfect!
I also used my new Tarte palette on my eyes and the Bang Beauty Brow Cream which I received in this months GlossyBox and loved! I’ve never really jumped onto the brow cream train but this is really nice. Other than that most of my make up was same old same old! I have a few set products which I am loving at the minute so most of my makeups are similar enough! I have recently done a post about it which details my bronzers/highlight etc so I won’t bore you again here. This post is already quite lengthy!
As I said earlier I love getting ready and making the most of any excuse to get dressed up and go out! It might not be the all-out Insta glam but that just isn’t me! I prefer a much more stripped back glowy makeup which is maybe why all my makeups are quite similar but hey ho!
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this post! Thank you so much for making it to the end!
