Clio Mk2 changing front head light bulbs

Wonder if anyone there can offer me some advice. one of my front headlight bulbs was out so i went on the internet and bought a replacement set. When i went to change it i realised i'd ordered the wrong bulb (it's the twin headlamp so one dipped, one full) as i'd bought xenon bulbs and they're supposed to be brighter i figured i'd just stick them in anyway.

I then ordered the proper bulbs that i needed and i've swapped them over as well.

Now that i've put the new bulbs in, the only lights that come on are the sidelights, EXCEPT if i'm on full beam in which case the full light comes (it means the bulbs are working fine).

Simplistically i thought i'd go back to the start put in all the old bulbs and therefore have them all working bar 1, but this isn't the case i get exactly the same scenario (full beam only) using the old bulbs.

I'm kind of screwed at the moment because i obviously can't drive my car with no lights, so any advice would be greatly appreciated. (and no one needs mention that i'm a numpty because i'm completely aware of that now )
