Going To Dinner Makeup and Outfit

It’s not that often that I get to dress up and do my whole makeup. Most of the times I would say I can manage to go through the day, and even night, with just a CC cream, mascara, and a lipstick, and that’s it. How about you? What’s your daily makeup situation like?? However, after constantly watching makeup tutorials on YouTube, within me has grown this desire to experiment with makeup. Thus, lately I’ve been trying to take any event as an opportunity to try out new technics, looks, products, you name it haha. So, a few days ago, I went to dinner with my family and sort of attempted to create a soft makeup look using the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. I took some photos to share the look with you :) I hope you enjoy this tutorial!

Makeup:



  1. I began with my foundation because I knew that I was going to use soft and light colored eyeshadows. Thus, any fallout would not be as catastrophic as if it were of a darker eyeshadow, like black or brown. I applied the Maybelline Fit Me Dewy + Smooth Foundation in the shade 125. 
  2. Next, I applied a bit of concealer under my eyes, nose, and any area that needed more coverage, like break outs or reddish skin patches. I used The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Concealer in the shade 02.
  3. Personally, I prefer a matte face than a dewy one, so I placed all over my face the Bourjois Bio Detox Organic Perfecting Powder in the shade Dark Beige.
  4. For bronzing and highlighting, I used L’Oreal Glam Bronze, which comes with two shades: a darker one, that I use as bronzer, and a lighter one for highlighting. I applied the lighter tone everywhere I placed my concealer.
  5. After I finished my face, I headed for the eyes. I used MAC Prep + Prime Eye in the shade Light as an eyeshadow base. This was necessary because my eyes tend to not keep hold of the eyeshadows. Does this happen to you, too? An eye primer allows my makeup to last longer.
  6. With a fluffy brush, I placed the bronzer that I used previously onto my crease. I blended it very well, from side to side.
  7. Next, I happily opened my Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette and applied Buzz on my upper eyelid. Then, with a fluffy brush I blended this eyeshadow with the one on the crease, just to there are no harsh lines.
  8. To add depth to my eyes, I placed Mugshot from the same palette onto the outer corner of my eye. I really liked this color, it’s a shimmery dark brown/greyish eyeshadow. Then, with a fluffy brush, I blended everything well, always trying to maintain a sort of cat eye shape (if that makes sense haha).
  9. For the finishing touches, I used the Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara in Jet Black to add volume to my eyelashes, and NYX Super Skinny Eye Marker in Black to line my eyes.
  10. Last, but not least, I applied MAC Pro Longwear Lipstick in Till Tomorrow, which I think it’s a nude color.

Outfit:




To be honest, that day I was a bit lazy clothing-wise and didn’t want to go all fancy to dinner. Instead, I opted for a feminine, occasion appropriate, yet semi casual outfit. In my attempt to try different styles, I wore this black top from Forever 21 tucked underneath a loose skirt from Zara. I really like the white leaf print on the top’s fabric. Also, it’s very soft and sort of shiny. The top is actually quite long. I’ve used it with leggings and boots before. As for the skirt, it’s a bit old, but one of my favorites. It’s high waited and loose, which gives that hour glass body shape. Because it was a cold night, I wore black tights from Forever 21 and knee high boots from Nine West.

I hope you enjoyed this post :) Let me know what you think! What is your favorite makeup look when going to dinner? What’s your everyday makeup?
