Up All Night with One Direction (Makeup)

This Friday was one of those non-stop days. I had back-to-back meetings at work, dinner with friends to celebrate Houston Restaurant Weeks at a cute Belgium place and a night on the town with some of my favorites. On these days (OK, try everyday), I need a quick routine that will pack a punch. I love makeup sets because they are color coordinated and offer everything I need to do my makeup in a pinch.


My new makeup kit by One Direction was perfect for my Friday night! I have a secret love for One Direction – I mean, how can you not get hooked into their catchy songs and adorable accents?!? This girl definitely cannot. I was so excited to hear that they were releasing a makeup collection with Markwins and had a feeling it would provide quality products combined with a lot of fun. When I received my Up All Night Kit in the mail, I was not disappointed. Loving the color blue, I was excited to see that my kit included lots of blue items – blue nail polish, blue eye crayon, blue eye shadow – it was a blue addict’s dream!! In addition to all of the blue items, the kit came with a bold pink lipstick and lip gloss. For a fun twist, there are also One Direction inspired stencils including a diamond – these will be great for Halloween or a costume party.

Using the instructions on the left hand side of the commemorative tin, I lined my eyes with the blue eye liner and added the taupe shadow to my lids and added the darker brown in the creases to accentuate my eyes. I can’t tell you how much I loved the mascara in the kit!!! I am usually extremely picky about my mascara. It needs to be both thickening and lengthening without clumping up. This mascara lived up to my expectations and stayed on while I danced the night away. I finished the look off with a little bronzer on the cheeks and the lip gloss from the kit. My makeup took less than 10 minutes and looked fantastic!! I am so glad that I had this kit handy for my busy day!

The final results! I am really loving the blue liner – it makes my hazel eyes pop!

Make sure to check out the Looks Collection by One Direction at Macys (Aug. 11th), Dillard’s, Beauty Brands and Lord & Taylor (Aug. 25th)! There are 3 different color palettes for every personality – the Up All Night kit (blues and pinks) for the fun and flirty girl, the Take Me Home kit (neutrals)  for the girl next door look and the Midnight Memories kit (red and black) creates a perfect look for on or off the stage!  I can’t wait to hear about your guilty pleasures and how much you love these new kits! 

FYI – Parts of this post were gifted to me in exchange for this post. Please know, I  will always provide you with my honest opinion of these items and will never recommend a product that I did not 100% love.
