Penny's 14th Birthday Party !

Hi everyone, 
As you can see by the images above and the title, that this isn't any old post. Every Sunday I post a blog post and I try and make them as original as possible but this week I was just feeling super uninspired so I came up with this.
One of my best friends (Penny) had her birthday yesterday (12th September) and to celebrate we went to a local restaurant for a meal then a sleepover. We all were going to get super dressed up so I though I would share the makeup I wore and all of our outfits.

Before I get started I just want to say that, three of us stayed at Penny's but Ella (another one of my best friends) couldn't make the meal and we took these pictures before so I apologies. 

My Makeup Look:
Face - To keep my makeup on all day I used the MUA pro-base primer, once that had set I went in with the MUA pro-base prime and conceal palette, using the peach tone under my eyes and the green pigment on any spots. After blending the concealer, I used the Rimmel Match perfection foundation and buffed that in all over my face. To highlight my under eyes, I used the Rimmel wake me up concealer. Since my foundation didn't cover up all my spots I went over with the Collection lasting perfection (mixed shades 1&2). As a blush I used my Collection speedy blush in 02 cheeky for a little glow and just blended that in. To create a light contour I used the Tanya Burr Hollywood eye shadow palette, and I used the shade bookworm, in the hollows of my cheek. To set my under eyes I used the MUA pressed powder in shade one, and to set my whole face a used the Rimmel clear complexion.

Eyes - To act as a base I used the Maybelline colour tattoo in Permanent taupe and just put a small amount over my eyelid and blended it slightly. I started my eye shadow with the crease colour, which was the Tanya Burr Hollywood eye shadow palette and the shade Bookworm (again). I just built up this colour very slowly to give a lot of definition to my eyes. I then applied the shade Nude delight (from the same palette) all over my lid, inner corner and brow bone to make my eyes look bigger a brighter. I then used The Body Shop coal eye liner in black to line my upper lash line. For mascara I used my favorite combination, Revlon Lash potion on top lashes and the Maybelline Big eyes mascara, lower lash mascara on my bottom lashes. I didn't fill I my eyebrows, I just used a (dirty) clear brow gel to give them a bit of a shape.

Lips - To prep them for my lip liner I used The Body Shop honey-mania lip balm. As we were going for a meal I didn't go for a lip gloss or stick as it would of came off so I just wore the MUA lip liner in Caramel Nougat all over my lips. It is a gorgeous brown nude shade which I am obsessed with!
