Hello lovely readers! I have something exciting to share with you today! I have always loved Las Vegas and have visited numerous times, so I was absolutely delighted when Vegas.com asked me to create a post on how I would style myself for a night out at the Aria. I have been to the Aria resort and casino a few times and let me tell you its spectacular! When I'm on a night out in Vegas you can be sure I'll be dressing up to the nines! The glamorous the better! Think sexy smoky eye, and a glitzy dress. Well that's exactly what I went for. I want my foundation to be flawless in pictures and there is no better base than Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. It has medium to full coverage and no spf which means you won't have to worry about the dreaded white cast. Apply with a buffing brush for the perfect finish.

Now is the time to get your smoky eyes on! This is a sultry, sexy look great for drinks at Haze or dinner at Blossom. I start of with a cream base like Maybelline Color Tattoo in Taupe, this ensures your shadow will stay put all night. I smoked it out with Charcoal liner from Mac and applied Urban Decay Diamond Dog Moondust for a touch of sparkle. Add lashings of your favourite mascara or pop on some false lashes for extra dramatic effect! Don't forget those bottom lashes to really open up the eyes. I lined and filled in my lips with Bareminerals Moxie in Energised, a vibrant peach shade and topped off with NYX Butter Gloss in Maple Blondie for super luscious lips. I added plenty of highlighter to the tops of my cheek bones for an added glow. Always set your makeup with a good setting spray like Urban Decay All Nighter. This will ensure you makeup stays put from dusk till dawn. Time to party!

What I'm Loving On My Face This Summer

Hello lovelies, these have been my go to products for summer. I've mentioned before that mineral powder is fabulous for hot and humid weather as it does not slide off. I particularly like Laura Mercier mineral foundation as I find it has the best coverage and really leaves skin super flawless. You can wear this over your regular foundation for extra staying power. I dust a bit of bronzer and pop a bright peachy/pink blush on the apples of my cheeks and I'm good to go. I don't like to fuss with too much eye makeup so I start of with a cream base like Maybelline Colour Tattoo which again won't budge, then top off with my new obsession Urban Decay Moondust in Spacecowboy. This gives the most gorgeous sparkle and works over top any eyeshadow. For lips I line and fill in with Urban Decay 24/7 glide on lip pencil in the shade Native, this pink is perfection and looks more natural than a nude. This won't come off it really does what it says. I top off with Mac plushglass in Fashion Fanatic, a bubblegum pink plumping gloss that is not sticky. Last but not least a slick of Benefit Gimme Brow to keep unruly brows in place.

What are your favourite products to use this summer?

Urban Decay Moondust & Glide on Lip Pencil

Hello lovelies, I just had to pick up the much talked about Urban Decay Moondust in Spacecowboy and the 24/7 glide on lip pencil in Native.here Both are divine! I'm so obsessed with Spacecowboy so I went ahead and got Diamond Dog aswell.here These metallic shadows are like no other, they are almost wet in texture and uber sparkly! They look amazing on their own or for a more amped up result, over a darker cream shadow. What fantastic is that there is zero fall out! The best way to apply these is with your fingers,gently patting onto your eyelid. 
Ok, now onto the Glide on lip liner Native. These are the creamiest pencils ever! They are waterproof too! I like to use this all over my lips as a base before gloss. I can eat a burger and it won't rub off! Native is the perfect cool tone pink. If you are new to lining your lips then these are the pencils for you, they are fool proof. You barely need to apply any pressure these literally do what the say, glide on! 
Urban Decay is fast becoming one of my all time favourite brands. I love the packaging and the quality of the products rival some of the biggest brands out there. 

Thanks for reading :) What are some of your favourite UD products?

The formula of the Marvelous Moxie lipsticks and liners are hands down the best I have ever used! If you have uber dry lips like me, these are the lip products for you. The ingredients are natural and nourishing keeping lips soft and supple all day long. The pigmentation and wear of these are incredible. The lip liner has a rubber piece that makes lining lips a breeze! I purchased mine at a Bareminerals boutique but you can find them online at Feel Unique
