Weekend Wining & Dining - outfit and makeup

I managed to scrape by with one photo of my outfit before heading out for a dinner date with a friend, so I hope you enjoy although the lighting is a bit weird and is giving me brassy hair syndrome.

My hair is a brass magnet, I swear. The dark, luscious cool brown tones I had in it just a month ago have faded into oblivion and I am now rocking a mixed plate of golden browns, coppery highlights and a mere shadow of the dark brown that used to be. Ho hum. Getting that fixed later today :)

Anyway, hair blabber aside - here's what I wore:

A plain grey/mauve tunic (reminds me of the colour of Metro Chic nail polish haha), opaque black tights paired with thick wool thigh-high socks - all great fall basics, which I got from Winners and Nordstrom, respectively. 
Black over the knee leather boots - Tahari
Bracelets - Nordstrom, Forever21
Blazer - Marc by Marc Jacobs
Belt - J Crew

And for the makeup, I pulled some old and new pieces out to play :)

Face - Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation, Giorgio Armani Master Corrector #1 under the eyes, Dior Matte Bronzer #2, NARS Sin blush
Eyes - Chanel Illusoire eyeshadow all over the lid, MAC Wedge eyeshadow in the crease, Bare Escentuals Nude Beach in the inner quarter of the eyelid. MAC Feline eyeliner and Makeup Forever Smoky Lash mascara.
Lips - Catrice Nude Rose lipliner, MAC Speed Dial lipstick

Hope you all have a fantastic start to the week!
