Night out FOTD - MAC Girl About Town and Eye Candy lashes

Last night my boyfriend, my sister and I went to my cousin's 18th birthday party in Liverpool. Cue scousebrows, beehives and 'Louboutins' all round. I wore this ASOS dress with the chest straps removed, a leopard print belt and my lilac Vivienne Westwood shoes (see this post!).

As for makeup, I made use of my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, some Eye Candy lashes I was kindly sent and an old favourite - MAC Girl About Town lipstick! I absolutely love this lipstick, it's the perfect hot pink that looks amazing against both pale and tanned skin!

Here's the finished look:
 Face:
YSL Matte Touch Primer
Estee Lauder Doublewear Light in 1.0
Estee Lauder Doublewear Concealer in Light (under eyes, around nose, chin)
MAC Cream Colour Base in Tickle Me Pink (blusher)
MAC MSF Natural in Light/Medium
Dior Amber Diamond highlighter along cheekbones
 

Eyes:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Urban Decay YDK (lid)
Urban Decay Half Baked (inner corner and excess blended over lid)
Urban Decay Suspect (crease)
Urban Decay Bootycall (brow bone highlight)
Benefit Eye Bright (lower waterline)
MUFE Aqua Eyes eyeliner in Black (tightline/upper waterline)
Estee Lauder Doublewear Liquid Liner in Black
Rimmel Day 2 Night mascara (I usually use this as a base for more volumising mascaras, it separates lashes well!)
MAC brow pencil in Lingering and MAC eyeshadow in Espresso to fill brows
No7 clear brow gel
Lips:
MAC Girl About Town patted on to give a matte stain effect

 (Really wishing I had a better camera/lighting for these pics!
Please leave any tips for taking good pics with a basic digital camera in the comments - I do use macro!)


As you can see in the above before and after pictures, the Eye Candy lashes gave me long, pretty lashes that were not too OTT or obviously fake looking. I much prefer the more 'natural' fake lashes these days!
They were really easy to apply - I just snipped off a little as they were too long for me, applied my glue (I used Duo, although these come with glue!), waited 30 seconds and used a pair of tweezers to place them on my lashes which I had already applied one coat of mascara to.


They wore really comfortably and the band isn't too thick or dark. There are so many lash brands out there that it's hard to know where to start but I think they would make great lashes for beginners.
I love that all the Eye Candy lashes are available in either the 50's style or 60's style packaging! The lashes are made from sterilised human hair which I was a little unsure about but after a bit of research this means that the lashes are of a higher quality than synthetic lashes - it's just like human hair extensions.

The lashes are in good condition after one use and I'm sure I will be able to wear them at least 3-4 more times.
The Eye Candy lashes retail for £4.49 and are available from Boots, justbeautifully.co.uk, and Gordons Chemists (based in Northern Ireland and Scotland but they sell online).

Thanks for reading!

(Disclaimer: I was sent the Eye Candy lashes for consideration. This doesn't affect my opinion at all and my review is totally honest.)
