Girly pals...

On Friday night I was lucky enough to go out with my friends from the nurseries, Sophie, Jenny, Gemma, Sally and Dawn and had a really really fun night. Weirdly enough, we all brought cameras and no-one took any photos as we were all enjoying eating and drinking too much to bother! It was lovely to see Gemma as none of us had seen her for about a year and to catch up on what was going on in each others lives.
Apologies for the lack of full length shots but I have no tripod to take photos with and my usual photographer (i.e. my sister) was out!
I over-blinged a little but oh well!
Why oh WHY do I always have such a goofy expression?! Trying to show off my bling and my nails :)
I was trying to get a pic of my make-up because I was really happy with it, and my mum was too (Shock horror!)
I wore:
L'Oreal Infallible concealer in 01 Vanilla
♥ 'Non fiction' foundation in Volume 1 by Benefit
♥ Jemma Kidd (Face) Perfect Tan Bronzing Trio
False Lash Effect Mascara by Max Factor in Black 
Natural Collection eyeshadow in Midnight
♥ 'Eye Bright' by Benefit  (from Benefit Primpcess palette)
♥ Lightest colour eyeshadow (from Benefit Primpcess palette)
♥ Cath Kidston Lipsalve in Lemon and Geranium 
Chloé perfume
I was really impressed with the Natural Collection eyeshadow. I had bought it that day because I had left my usual 'smokey eye' eyeshadow (black Max Factor) at uni and wanted to have smokey eys for when I went out. The colour was intense but I was able to build it up to create a dramatic effect. 
Apologies for the huge close up but I wanted to show you how you can vary the colour from light to dark!
