Friday night out

On Friday I went out with my friends to a new club called '1500 m2 for rent'. It's a combination of a bar, club and art gallery all in one, and is located in an old tenement house near the city centre. It's also one of a few loft spaces available for public here. When we came in and started wandering around, at one point I thought we were going to get lost, it's such a maze of rooms and corridors! It was the biggest event this month in Warsaw with 3500 people subscribed on Facebook. Luckily, we didn't have to queue at the entrance, because my brother, who's both a lawyer and a DJ, was one of the organizers :)

I go out to clubs very rarely, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to try a new look. I decided to create a bold, smokey eye with Barry M Dazzle Dust in 98, a dark purple with blue duochrome to match my shirt. I tried to go rocker chic, which is not usually my style; I never felt comfortable with such a dark eye make-up, but this time I actually really liked it.

I have to say this Dazzle Dust is simply stunning! I was expecting a lot of fallout, so I applied a sticky base underneath (Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow in Seashells), and I'm proud to report there was not even a tiny speck of glitter on my cheeks when I finished! I'm already thinking of how to incorporate it into everyday looks...

Products used:
CS Eye Poxy Primer: to prevent cream eyeshadow from creasing
Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow in Seashells: a greyish shade all over the lid
Barry M Dazzle Dust in 98
Annabelle eyeshadow in Vanilla Chilla to highlight
generic black gel eyeliner on upper lashline
MaxFactor Colour Perfection eyeliner in Ice Blue on the waterline

Barry M lipstick in Peachy Pink
Maybelline lipgloss in Pink Whisper

CS "G" Bronzer/Blush

Hope you all had a great weekend, ladies! xxx


  1. oh, beautiful eye makeup. i'm loving charcoal colours right now.

  2. what a cool event! and your interesting combination--lawyer and dj! i like the dark eye on you--will you dare to do it during the week? one of these days i'll try a dazzledust..i see them in so many photos of people's collection..

  3. You look amazing... seriously stunning! I also love the Barry M DD. I emailed you about the swap btw! xxx

  4. Wow you look amazinggg!!!!!!
    Love the dark eyes on you- you look like an editorial model :)

  5. @su-pah: Charcoal colors are the best for fall/winter! xxx

    @fantastic: Hahah, yes, my brother has to outweight his serious job by being a dj :) I'm thinking maybe not a dark eye, that would be too much for uni (I'm already daring it with bright pink/berry lips), but maybe as a liner? I only have this one Dazzle Dust, unfortunately, but I can really recommend the one I have!

    @loveaudrey: Thank you, sweetie! I'll get back to you as soon as my dreadful presentation tomorrow is over! xxx

    @Sarah: You girlies make me want to try dark eyes more often! Thanks, hun :) xxx

  6. I like the dark eyes! I love that you model pose for all your pictuers...makes the posts fun and dramatic. =)

  7. @Kajal Couture: Thank you, sweetheart! My husband always laughs at me for my posing, but well, I like it, it makes me feel a bit more glam :) xxx

  8. I really like the way this so understated "smokey eye effect" subtly matches your shirt's prints, with a lot of dark/scintillating delicacy . . .
    ps: Cet "Eloge du Maquillage" de Charles Baudelaire Truly sounds as an exquisite rhetorical Tribute to Femininity !!!

    à Bientôt, Antoine

  9. Beautiful! It's HIGH time you started sharing your makeup skills with some youtube tutorials...

  10. @stilettostetico: Thanks a lot, I actually bought the shirt the day before and I absolutely love it (maybe I would feature it in an outfit post?).

    Ah, Eloge du Maquillage, this should be like a gospel to every beauty addict :) xxx

    @Ondine: Awww, you're really sweet, but I doubt anyone would watch me babbling in a strange Slavic accent ;) xxx
