#AriaNightOut


Hello lovely readers! I have something exciting to share with you today! I have always loved Las Vegas and have visited numerous times, so I was absolutely delighted when Vegas.com asked me to create a post on how I would style myself for a night out at the Aria. I have been to the Aria resort and casino a few times and let me tell you its spectacular! When I'm on a night out in Vegas you can be sure I'll be dressing up to the nines! The glamorous the better! Think sexy smoky eye, and a glitzy dress. Well that's exactly what I went for. I want my foundation to be flawless in pictures and there is no better base than Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. It has medium to full coverage and no spf which means you won't have to worry about the dreaded white cast. Apply with a buffing brush for the perfect finish.


Now is the time to get your smoky eyes on! This is a sultry, sexy look great for drinks at Haze or dinner at Blossom. I start of with a cream base like Maybelline Color Tattoo in Taupe, this ensures your shadow will stay put all night. I smoked it out with Charcoal liner from Mac and applied Urban Decay Diamond Dog Moondust for a touch of sparkle. Add lashings of your favourite mascara or pop on some false lashes for extra dramatic effect! Don't forget those bottom lashes to really open up the eyes. I lined and filled in my lips with Bareminerals Moxie in Energised, a vibrant peach shade and topped off with NYX Butter Gloss in Maple Blondie for super luscious lips. I added plenty of highlighter to the tops of my cheek bones for an added glow. Always set your makeup with a good setting spray like Urban Decay All Nighter. This will ensure you makeup stays put from dusk till dawn. Time to party!

What I'm Loving On My Face This Summer

Hello lovelies, these have been my go to products for summer. I've mentioned before that mineral powder is fabulous for hot and humid weather as it does not slide off. I particularly like Laura Mercier mineral foundation as I find it has the best coverage and really leaves skin super flawless. You can wear this over your regular foundation for extra staying power. I dust a bit of bronzer and pop a bright peachy/pink blush on the apples of my cheeks and I'm good to go. I don't like to fuss with too much eye makeup so I start of with a cream base like Maybelline Colour Tattoo which again won't budge, then top off with my new obsession Urban Decay Moondust in Spacecowboy. This gives the most gorgeous sparkle and works over top any eyeshadow. For lips I line and fill in with Urban Decay 24/7 glide on lip pencil in the shade Native, this pink is perfection and looks more natural than a nude. This won't come off it really does what it says. I top off with Mac plushglass in Fashion Fanatic, a bubblegum pink plumping gloss that is not sticky. Last but not least a slick of Benefit Gimme Brow to keep unruly brows in place.


What are your favourite products to use this summer?
