Get Ready With Me!: Movie Night

 Hello beauties! Yesterday night I went to see 22 Jump Street and grab a bite to eat with a good friend of mine. I decided to show you all my makeup look, the products I used, before and after and my outfit of the night! So come and get ready with me to go to the movies! (: 
 (Also I did all of this in under an hour. #boss)

.::Beauty and Makeup:..
Before I started my makeup I got myself to my Beauty Ground Zero. Beauty Ground Zero is the basis for my face whenever I get ready! I took a quick shower and did my normal shower routine. (Post coming soon!) I then blow dried and straightened my hair (this is also coming soon!) and brushed my teeth. Now I was ready to get my face all ready!

Before all the makeup! Scary I know! 
All the products I used!  (L to R)
elf Contouring Blush & Bronzer Duo in St. Lucia// Maybelline Natural Smokes Quad// Mary Kay single eyeshadows in Whipped Coco & Storm// Rimmel Exaggerate waterproof eye liner in Noir// Benefit They're Real mascara// Maybelline Falsies Volum' Express in Black Drama// Rimmel Stay Matte liquid mouse foundation in 200 Soft Beige// Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in Sandstorm// Covergirl single eyeshadow in Tapestry Taupe// Urban Decay Primer Potion (not pictured)
Face First!
I used my Rimmel foundation and squeezed a large-ish pea sized amount onto my finger and dabbed that onto my cheeks, chin and forehead. This is a full to medium coverage foundation so a little bit goes a looong way.  I applied it to my face using my fingers. I find using my fingers, as opposed to a brush, gives a more smooth and even coverage. I doubled the foundation as a concealer and concealed any blemishes I had. 

After I used my Rimmel powder and set the foundation all over my face and down my neck to blend it. 

Next I used the elf blush from the duo and applied that using a fluffy blush brush to the apples of my cheeks and blended it upwards. I've been really into blush lately to give my face some color. 

My face is done so now I moved onto my eyes!

I applied Urban Decay's eyeshadow primer on both lids and blended it out with my ring finger. Using the Covergirl eyeshadow and an eyeshadow brush I applied the color all over my lids. It's a really pretty shimmery, grayish- taupey color. Then I used a fluffly blending brush and used the brown Mary Kay eyeshadow and put that in my outer V, blending that in circular and windshield wiper motions, to darken up the eye look. I used the highlight color in the Maybelline quad and using another fluffly brush added that to my browbone and inner corner. 

Now I used my Rimmel eyeliner and lined my top lashline and waterline. I used an eyeliner brush and picked up some of the black eyeshadow and set the liner, giving my eyes extra definition. 

Finally I finished up with mascara. I used my Benefit mascara first as a base coat. Then I went in with my Maybelline Falsies for volume, definition and length. 

The perfume I used was Endless Weekend by Bath and Body Works, which is one of my faves right now!

And voila! I'm all made up! 
And after! I don't look quite so scary! Lol.
That's the makeup look! Pretty simple and easy to do! It takes me about 15 minutes, give or take to complete the entire thing! Now onto the outfit! 

Romper (Wet Seal)// Denim vest (H&M)// Necklace (Tilly's)// Sandals (Ross) 

It was super hot out and very humid so I wanted something very light and comfortable but still looking cute! So I decided on a romper, vest, sandal combo! 
I've been obsessed with this romper! It's so comfy and light! It's like wearing socially acceptable pajamas. It's simple that it can be dressed up or down. It's the perfect staple for summertime. I paired it with a lightwash cropped denim vest to add a little something extra. Add a pair of brown ankle strap sandals and a triangle layered necklace and I am good to go! 

So there you go! You got ready with me, start to finish, makeup to outfit for a night at the movies! I hope to do more of these Get Ready With Me posts again! And I hope you all enjoyed this one! Lemme know what you think by commenting or tweeting me! (: 

Till next time!
