The Movie Date Face


I'm a little bit obsessed with pink glossy lips at the moment, and seem to be basing many of my makeup looks around this key component. The Covergirl Jumbo Gloss Balm in Haute Pink Twist* has earned a permanent spot in my makeup bag, and when I went out with a girlfriend for lunch at Schnitz and to see Walking With Dinosaurs, this is what I wore. (Yes, two adults went to see a dinosaur movie, and were the only ones there without children!)

I pulled out my Too Faced Pretty Rebel palette and used a few shades to create my eye look for the day. I popped a bit of the bright pink Totally Fetch in the centre of my lid, and then dabbed some of the pearly peach Ringleader on either side of it - as an aside, Ringleader is fast becoming my favourite shade because it is so much prettier on the eye than it looks in the pan! I then decided that it looked like crap, so randomly went in with some of the shimmery brown Gangsta shade in the crease, which then made me love the look a little bit. Dainty was my matte brow highlight, and I popped some Designer Brands Absolute Liquid Eyeliner on my top lashline. I finished it all off with a few coats of the new Covergirl Flamed Out mascara*!
I'm pretty obsessed with my shimmery baked Etude House blushes, and for this look I stuck with Sugar Cookie Blush in 002 pink and loved how my cheeks were glowy all day long!
Are you a fan of kids movies, too?
What is the last film you watched, and would you recommend it?

  4. Haute Pink Twist looks like a gorgeous pink! A couple of weeks ago I did a stint of babysitting (8 hours a day) and you wouldn't believe how many dvds we went through, luckily I'm a big fan of kid movies. The Despicable Me and Smurf movies are really good (but I never want to see them again, lost count of how many times I've seen them). Have a great weekend :)

    i defs still enjoy kids movies, can't wait to watch frozen and I am such a sucker for Meatballs 2!
    Who said two adults with no kids cant see a kids movie - dinosaurs are awesome.

  9. Haha, I loved Walking With Dinosaurs. My hubby and I took our 2 year old to see it a few weeks ago but I probably would have gone to see it even if we didn't have a child :-)

  10. What a pretty, elegant, simply look. I like how you do your makeup, Emma. I have a tendency to go for heavier, darker looks but I would like to go for simpler, lighter looks as well!
