I thought I'd do another get ready with me; the first for this year! I was going to an outdoorsy summer party which I thought would be a fun 'subject', as such.
I kept my face makeup very simple: L'Oreal True Match foundation; Makeup Revolution Blushing Heart Blusher; Essence Make Brows Wow! Kit; Benefit Boi-ing concealer, and bareMinerals Mineral Veil. The look was finishes with my MAC cremesheen lipstick in Creme Cup; which was very subtle as to now drag attention from they eyes.
I decided to play up the eyes more for this look; taking an approach on the smokey eye. Urban Decay's Eden Primer Potion was my primer of choice, as I'm prone to oily lids. I used bareMinerals Ready Eye-shadow 4.0 quad in 'The A List'. I used 'Fashionably Late' all over the lid with 'Swanky' as the transitional tone. 'Black Tie Optional' was used lightly in the outer corner and crease, while 'Icebreaker' was used to highlight the inner corners and brow-bones.
I used my ever trusty Rimmel Glam Eyes eyeliner, which is the only liquid liner I ever use, to create dramatic cat eyes. I'm never normally one for false lashes, unless on stage, but any type of party calls for them. I only ever use Eyelure lashes; in this look I used Eyelure Naturalities Intense. These are full on dramatic lashes that fan out takes the outer corners.
Summer calls for buying new dresses! The party I was going to was more of an outdoor get-together, than anything else, so I thought this would be appropriate.In general, I don't bother much about the style of a dress, but flowers are my thing! I picked up this little beauty in my local Tk Maxx one day when I was supposed to be just 'browsing'. It's a pink floral dress with a sweetheart neckline from Cynthia Rowley, for £19.99. There ware also plain coloured ones when I was there, but this one was more my style. It has pockets at the hips and a gold zipper running down the back to the waist band. I feel super, crazy feminine in it!
I'm not normally one to wear anything with height unless to a formal 'dance'; anything with a heel intimidates me. I always feel that they will be too uncomfortable, so I was wary buying these. I was so glad I was WRONG! These heeled sandals feel amazing on; so cushioned and comfortable. I have no problems walking in them either, as I feel like I'm walking in a pair of flats. I purchased these from the wide fit section of New Look for £24.99.
Let me know what yo think! What is your summer got to party outfit?
