Look for the day!
A few weeks ago, was my uncle’s wedding. Well, he is almost as old as I am, add a few years to my age, but he’s my dad’s cousin! So he’s considered my uncle. It was a family affair, and a day wedding, so I carefully prepared my makeup and my get-up for the event.
For my makeup, now, don’t judge me – I really, really wanted to play with lighter shades, but I really feel that small eyes really look great with smoky eyed makeup. So there, I was about to sport a gold lid with a shimmery black contour, that changed last minute into a a brown smoky eyed look. Black shades nearing the lashline, gradually lightening up with deep brown, and shimmery brown as I go up my lids.
For my blush, I used Sleek Contour Kit in Medium for that added dimension, and added Bobbi Brown’s Tawny shade ( it’s an earthy shade ) on top of the contour. By then, I was looking for some shimmer in my face already, so I found my Beauty & Minerals Mineral Blush in Buff Apricot and swiped it on my cheekbones.
For my lips, well, I was quite excited to use my new shade of lipstick, which is Inglot Matte Collection AMC Lip Pencil #11. The shade is a beautiful, beautiful coral shade, that is just so me! I asked Brigitte to get the most “me” Inglot lipstick as she travelled to Dubai a month ago, and she was definitely spot on! I’m so in love with this perfect shade, and expect to see it in more of my looks!
For my outfit, well, I would need to confess to you guys that I’m getting addicted to all things related to fashion lately. I love reading fashion blogs, and I love online shopping for clothes and shoes! *somebody help me this is getting addictive!* Though I am still not fashionable enough, I think that I am slowly molding my style.
I’ve found a gem on Facebook that sells really beautiful dresses – The Florence Fling. The styles are really feminine and chic, and I feel that the styles are classic and will not get outdated at all. I can even see myself wearing their dresses 10 years from now – oh please Sophie just please don’t balloon into a bigger size!
Here’s me ( please ignore my eyes, they totally disappeared in the photo ) wearing one of The Florence Fling’s dresses – the Alexine Goddess dress in Matte Bronze.
Well, I really really enjoy formal affairs when I can dress up and do my own hair and makeup! I know it’s a tedious task to prepare, but I am loving every single moment of it!
