Night-Out Look

I've started using this for my going out look - it's a bit of a change because i always used to prefer to keep my eyes with very natural colours except my black eyeliner. For this, although for most people might seem quite natural, I used one of the darker shades in my Urban Decay Naked palette, Gunmetal. It is very dark, with shimmer and has undertones of blue. It's very blendable though so not too overwhelming. I avoided it for a while because I was scared so if you haven't tried it and have it then DO DO DO! It's not too opaque at all but works well in the crease.

These are all the products I used:

On my face I used: 
Primed and Poreless by Benefit on my chin and other pore-ful areas like around my nose. Anything that was left I put on my cheeks on my cheeks for a smoother finish,
Loreal Paris Dream Lumi Highlighter/Concealer in Light under my eyes,
Chanel Vita Lumiere Foundation in B10,
Benefit Watts Up highlighter on my cheekbones and cupids bow,
Contoured with Mac Mineralise blush in A Little Bit of Sunshine,
Dandelion by Benefit blush quite liberally (it's like healthiness in powder form, can't recommend it enough)
Mac Well Dressed (a tiny bit on the apples of my cheeks)

On my eyes (okay here's where it gets a bit more complicated - I'm going to go into a little more detail because the eyes are the main focus of this look):
Urban Decay Primer Potion all over my lid and up to my brow bone and underneath,
Naked Palette - on the first third of my eye I put Sin, the second and third part Toasted, and then in the crease and outer corner Gunmetal. Then I went back and used Virgin in my inner corner and brow bone. I took each of the other three colours and used an angled brush underneath my eye to line.
Maybelline Liner Express eye liner with a small wing,
Naked Palette - Creep on a liner brush in bottom outer corner and over liquid eyeliner and a tiny bit of a fluffy brush on the outer corner.
Then I layered Loreal Paris Lash Architect 4D and Loreal Paris Volume Millions which work well for very dramatic lashes (maybe only for night time.. :-P )

I then put Loreal Rouge Caresse lipstick on moisturised lips in Tempting Lilac because it's a pretty pinky colour to put more emphasis on my eyes.
Sorry this post is so rambling! I know I'm not really talking to many people, but this was fun to do anyway ^.^

I had a fake tan accident the other day and got some exfoliator (to get rid of the accident) and a new type which I have a lot more faith in. I might pick up another and compare all three and do a review in a couple of weeks once I know what I think, that might be fun! :D
