On Friday night I was meeting a friend for dinner then going to some birthday drinks in town. Seeing as I spend most of my days in comfortable, functional clothing I decided to put on something a bit pretty and girly. I’ve had this skirt for about six or seven years now. It’s an Alannah Hill number from back home in Australia. I LOVE Alannah Hill clothes!!! I always come back from a trip to Australia with a bag full of items from there. They never seem to go out of style and they last forever. In fact, I’m wearing an Alannah Hill dress to a costume party in a couple of weeks. I’m going as Tinkerbell. The dress is a perfectly whimsical, little green number for it. I should mention that the top is an old sweater from The Gap. It looks pretty dull but it’s almost backless and does up with a big, shiny black bow at the nape of the neck. Pretty!
Makeup-wise I decided to just go for it. Unfortunately my pictures haven’t turned out all that well. I used all Nars products for eyes, cheeks and lips. Eyes were a combination of Night Fairy and Notorious. I highlighted the inner corneres with some Himalayas and used Lulu with a wet liner brush above and below the lash line. I used a RougeBunnyRouge black liner pencil on the waterlines. I’m afraid these pictures came out a bit strangely as well. It all looks quite bronzy and brown when it was actually all shades of grey and purple. Sorry.
On my cheeks I buffed in some Cannes Multiple before I powdered my face and went across the apples with some Orgasm.
For the lips I used my finger to put on Captiva lipstick. I’d put on a layer, blot it with a tissue and go for it again. I did that three or four times to get a nice stain going. It’s far from a ‘perfect’ lip but that’s kind of what I wanted. It was all supposed to look a little like I’d slept in it. In a good way.
