Yes I suck. I haven’t been blogging much and YES I know, I haven’t done anything regarding the giveaway. I suck I suck I suck. But my real life is sometimes a lot more important and needs taking care of. I’m not gonna tell you what went down, but trust me, it was a lot and completely stopped me from doing anything beauty related. And that also includes only wearing mascara and using my brow kit to make myself look presentable.
Anyways. I finally thought of something I can post and show you to make my hiatus a lit less bitter. So where we go.
In early June, I had the honour of being my man Lodz’s date to his graduation ball. It would’ve also been my own graduation ball hadn’t I taken out a year after my 2nd year at uni. Ah well. So at least I knew lots of those people and it was also my best mate’s graduation ball.
I had the honour (or stress depending on where you stand) to do my best mate’s girlfriend Jess’s makeup as well as my uni friend Miriam’s and her friend Anni’s makeup! And obviously myself! Quite stressful with my best mate’s girlfriend’s flatmates asking me for help too. But I gotta say I also loved it, helping these girls look hot :-)
So in the end I got my own makeup down just on time. And I was already exhausted, not just from the 3 other girls but also from the 2 days before (Take That and shoes & bag shopping!). EXHAUSTED MUCH.
But here’s a couple of pictures of me and my best mate’s girlfriend. WE LOOKED STUNNING!
|Myself, Yumi and my best mate’s girlfriend Jess (whose makeup I did)|
|Miriam – one of the girls whose makeup I did|
|Anni, her friend and Miriam (I did Anni’s and Miriam’s makeup)|
I can’t remember the products I used on these girls, but it was a mix of Inglot eye shadows, Clinique gel liner in black, a Guerlain eye shadow, Sleek lip sticks, ELF HD powder, MAC Select Concealer, Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip and Aqua Eye Pencils, and some of the stuff the girls brought themselves.
For Jess I went for a silver/black/purple theme to go with her dress & accessories.
For Anni I went with gold/navy because her dress had both colors very dramatic (which she didn’t like haha).
For Miriam I went with gold/bronze because he’s massively tanned and it just made her look like a summer goddess.
For myself I went with silver/black/navy/purple to match my accessories (silver) and use the complimentary color to orange (navy) and black to deepen it and purple to make my eyes pop (purple is the complimentary color of brown).
I got my dress from Miss Selfridge where it was part of the limited edition festival (?!) collection. Weirdly enough, Size 8 was smaller cut than Size 4, ah well. I had been trolling the internet forever, trying to find a dress that is unique and non-Prom like, and then while leaving the Bullring in Birmingham, I saw this. GASP. FITS. MINE.
Shoes & bag I got from Debenhams.
I have some official pictures of me and Lodz as well, but I haven’t managed to scan them yet, but here are some more:
Once I’ve hassled the boyfriend’s parents to send me their pictures from Graduation, I will do a 2nd post to show you guys what I was wearing to my man’s graduation ceremony :)
