I mentioned in yesterdays post and this post here that i was attending a charity night in memory of my friend and to support and raise money for C-R-Y (Cardiac Risk in the Young) Charity - i didn't actually get any photos of the night, i did intend too for this post but i spent a lot of the night catching up with friends and having a drink or four that i just didn't end up taking any, i did win a prize on the raffle they were hosting which was i was super chuffed about as i won a £20 voucher to a local beauty salon so I'm very excited to treat myself to a little pampering. I did however take a couple before i went out so i figured id show you the make-up i was wearing - the camera hasn't picked up the make-up all that well as it was evening so the flash has washed it out a bit, but hopefully these give you an idea of the make-up i worn.

For my base, i primed with 17 Photo Flawless Skin Primer and added Benefit High Beam to the cheeks to highlight and give a glow underneath my Foundation. I concealer under my eyes with Benefit Fake Up Concealer in 01* and applied Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation in Shade 1.0. I did my usual routine for eyebrows; filling them in with HD Brows Foxy Kit and setting them with MUA Clear Mascara.

For the eye look, i primed the lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion and used two palettes; first MUA Ever After Matte Eyeshadow Palette using the shades Bare (all over the lid) and Chino (along the crease) and then i took my Urban Decay Naked Palette and used the shades Darkhorse (outer corner) and Virgin (inner corner). I tightlined the eyes with Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliner in Black and lined my lash line with Rimmel Scandaleyes Precise Micro Eyeliner in Black and applied Benefit They're Real Mascara.

I finished the base with Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory applying that under the eyes and to cover any blemishes, i set it all in place with Benefit Hello Flawless Custom Cover Up Powder in Gee, I'm Swell Ivory*. I added a bit of colour into the face by applying George Bronzing Duo and applied my favourite blusher Benefit Bella Bamba. As i went for a more fuller eye look i kept the lips very natural with Mac Lipstick in Creme Cup and set all my make-up in place with Collection Fix Me Up Spray.

The dress i wore is actually one from Primark costing a mere £8 - quite a bargain if you ask me as it's a lovely fit and its one of those dresses that you can dress up or down, i paired this with some simple black heels from Peacocks. For my hair i curled the ends with my Enrapture Encode Totem Styler (on the heat settings 2-2-3) i absolutely love using this to curl my hair, its so quick and easy and i always love the results. Unfortunately, last night was the first time i managed to burn myself with it, nothing appeared on my face at first so i thought id had a lucky escape but i woke up this morning with a mark on the side of my face - so definitely be careful with it!

Overall i had a lovely night and it was such a great way for everyone to come together and honour James and it raised a fantastic amount of money for the charity too!
