329. Bruno Mars | Liverpool Echo Arena

So last night i went to see Bruno Mars with my sister; we decided to get a hotel and stay over in Liverpool and make a nice day/night out of it. I had a lovely day shopping (haul will be coming your way tomorrow) I picked up a lovely new (expensive) foundation, a few other make-up bits and some Lush items. I also had a very long overdue Starbucks; the closest one to me isn't exactly walking distance so i made sure i went whilst in Liverpool and i got a Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate which was delicious, definitely made the right choice - unfortunately I'm now craving another one!

We stayed in the same Hotel that we stayed back in March when we went watching Olly Murs (post, here) Hotel Campanile; it was nothing fancy just a basic hotel but it was nice and cheap and super close to the arena so it was ideal for us.

I really liked how my make-up turned out for the night - i used some of my new products that i bought earlier in the day and so far I'm pretty happy with my choices, the lighting in the room obviously wasn't the greatest but i hope you like them anyways.

The Make-Up I Wore:
Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory | YSL Youth Liberator Serum Foundation in B30 | HD Brows 'Foxy' Kit | Maybelline Brow Drama in Dark Brown | Mac Paint Pot in Painterly | Rimmel Glam Eyes Mono Eyeshadow in Punchy Taupe | Mac Eyeshadow in Satin Taupe | Rimmel Scandaleyes Precision Micro Eyeliner | Benefit They're Real | Benefit Hello Flawless Custom Cover Up Powder in Gee, I'm Swell Ivory* | Topshop Blush in Head Over Heels | YSL Touche Eclat | Bourjois Colourburst Lip Crayon in Red Sunrise

The night itself was pretty eventful; we had really good seats and a good view of the stage and the floor was all standing and there was a couple standing in front of us who got pretty wasted so all the security staff were keeping an eye on them and i think they delayed the show a little whilst they decided what to do about them because as soon as they moved them (I'm not sure if they kicked them out but they took them out of the crowd) the show started. I took my bridge camera with me because i wanted better quality photos and ended up having it taken off me, i did get it back but they locked it up in a cage and in my haste to follow the 'response' man outside all my rechargeable batteries fell out so I've had to buy some new ones - i have had them for a good 10 years so it was time. I was a little scared he was going to yell at me but he was actually really pleasant and just said i couldn't use it, the girl sat next to me also had her DSLR taken off her - so i think it's just little digital cameras and phones that you can use. I did however manage to get a couple of photos of him...

I'll be completely honest and admit that whilst i do like Bruno Mars and i enjoy his music i mostly went because my sister loves him and really wanted to go - otherwise id probably wouldn't have been bothered about going but after seeing him live last night i would genuinely go again. He was incredible and he really put on a show; despite his constant moving and dancing around the stage his voice didn't falter and some of the notes coming out of him were very pleasant on the ears. It was a fantastic show; and whilst I'm a little disappointed he didn't sing my favourite song off his album 'Gorilla' (i think it was due to the delay) i would definitely recommend going to see him live because it did not disappoint!

Do you like Bruno Mars? Have you been to any shows/tours lately?

  3. Sounds like a great evening. I saw him in concert a couple of years ago. It was him along with a few other artists and that was a great evening. Your make up was lovely :)
