What's On My Face - Within Temptation

For Christmas I bought my partner some tickets to see one of his favourite bands Within Temptation, I've not heard much of them but he has been blasting their CD's in the car so I am getting an education into symphonic metal (I know, I never even knew that this was a genre either)
So as a change to my normal review posts I decided to do a what's on my face, and my nails, so here goes:

Maybelline Baby Skin Primer - This was a first try of this product so a baptism of fire for it, it is silicone based but once it was massaged onto the skin it didn't feel greasy.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Radiance Reveal Foundation - Light Vanilla - I love this foundation, I chose this as it has no SPF in so when photo's might be taken my face won't light up like Blackpool illuminations.
Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer - Ivory - This has become one of my favourite concealers it blends under the eye really well and stays for quite a while.
SEVENTEEN Hide Away Concealer Stick - Extra Fair - This was just a concealer to hid blemishes, it did a good job but I think it might be time to throw it away.
Avon ColorTrend Pressed Powder - Translucent - A really good powder, that doesn't oxidise on the face (well it doesn't on me) really good and it does have an SPF in which I think is novel for a powder, I don't think I've come across a pressed powder that has an SPF in.
Avon Lid Primer - This is one of my favourite eyeshadow primers it keeps my eyeshadow on for ages and really brightens it up.
Natural Collection LashCare Mascara - Clear - This is just used to protect my lashes from the drying effects of the mascara especially as I am going to be putting on a waterproof mascara.
Sleek I-Divine Palette - Garden of Eden - I've not used this fully but I decided to get it out and make a smoky eye look. I used Gates of Eden as the base and used Flora in the crease and blended it all in. It worked really well and I was quite chuffed with the outcome.

Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express Waterproof Mascara - Black - I thought a waterproof mascara would be good as there might be a bit of sweating in the scrum.
Rimmel ScandalEyes Eyeliner - Black - I love this eyeliner it is so easy to apply the waterline, and the upper lashes.
Soap & Glory™ Super-Colour Fabulipstick™ Collagen Boosting Lipstick - The Missing Pink - I'd gone quite dramatic with my eyes so I didn't want to overdo it on my lips so I applied Soap & Glory's The Missing Pink lipstick just to give a hint of colour.
Here is the finished look, not too bad dramatic with the eyes and light on the lips.
Black on Black - Sinful Colors - I used this as a base coat on the nail, easy to apply not too gloopy and really pigmented.

Siren - Collection - I used this just on the tips to give a bit of a punk look with pink on black, this finished product wasn't the greatest but it wasn't too bad.

Delain were the support act and they weren't too bad

Within Temptation was really good and my partner really enjoyed himself (he's got no voice today).

Thanks for tuning in
