Saturday Night out: Makeup and Outfit

Last Saturday night I went out with friends for a meal then clubs etc. Whenever I go out on a night I always like to get dressed up wearing heels and a fitted dress. That is my typical style when going on a night out.
In this blog post I will be talking about what I wore and the makeup I used. As I was going out for a meal I wanted to look classy but also something that was suited for clubs aswell.
Surprisingly this dress managed to stay white without getting no marks on all night.  Makeup wise it lasted me all night/early morning. I went out 7pm and came back home 3am and my makeup still looked good. Although by that time I was abit shiny as I never powdered once throughout the night.

The makeup
 If you have read my blog for a while you know I love full coverage makeup. I wanted a full coverage, flawless, bronzed, smokey eye with a bold lip look. I am happy with how my makeup turned out.
If you hate wearing lots of makeup you probably won't like this makeup as I did use ALOT of products.
As I said previously this makeup lasted all night/early morning without using a setting spray. It's all about layering products in order to keep your makeup in place.

I never planned on buying a new dress but when I saw this dress I knew I had to buy it. As its fitted and I loved the detailing on the top of it. This dress was really comfortable to wear throughout the night. Unlike some fitted dresses this one actually stayed in place. Instead of 'riding' up your legs when you walk etc. I posted an outfit picture on Twitter and I got a few compliments of the dress. The detailing on the top is my favourite as it's glitzy and I never had to wear a necklace with it. I am 5ft 3 (without heels) and this dress comes just above the knee on me. As I said previously for nights out I like fitted, above the knee dresses as I think they look better on me.
Shoes are a nightmare for me on nights out as they always end up hurting. I bought these on the same day I went out. Bad I know as you shouldn't wear new shoes straight away as they hurt. But these shoes really did surprise me comfort wise. I wore these from 7am till 3am. For the majority of the night they were really comfortable to walk and dance in. If you struggle finding comfy heels I recommend trying these shoes out, for £14 you can' go wrong. I also bought these shoes in Black.
I kept the rest of my accessories simple and kept with plain gold accessories as the dress was the 'main' feature.
For my hair I just straighten it to keep the style simple. And the fact I'm not the best at curling my hair either.

Max Factor: Smooth Miracle Primer and Miracle foundation review

I was kindly sent these products to review
Max Factor is such an iconic brand that has been around for years. I can remember Nana using it and even my Mam. When I got the chance to try out some Max Factor makeup I was really happy (infact I screamed inside) When I opened the package I was really happy with what was inside. The Smooth Miracle Primer and Miracle Touch Foundation. Both products claim to smooth the skin textures. Also, these products are advertised on TV and the models skin looks flawless. Anything that claims to make your skin look flawless and smooth I will try. As you all know I love a flawless, smooth and full coverage base.
Smooth Miracle Primer I 'secretly' hoped that this would have been one of the products in the package, as I really wanted to try it out. So when I saw this product I was thrilled. The bottom picture above is the primer using a small pump and on the right (which you can't see) it is blended out. I applied the primer all over my face and I…

Before I use this sponge I dampen it as foundation, concealer blends out better when doing so.
To create the flawless finish I bounce the sponge off my skin it also stops y…
