A few weeks ago I headed back up to Carlisle after a few months at home for my graduation ball. This is something which we all been looking forward to for months and was one big final celebration for us all after our three years of hard work. I wore this gorgeous dress from Ted Baker which I am still in love with. I bought it a few months ago from the Ted Baker store located at Cheshire Oaks in the sale and when I tried it on I felt like a true princess. After trying on what felt like every pair of shoes out there, I finally found these amazing royal blue shoes from Faith and I felt that they looked beautiful paired with the dress.
I thought I would let you in on the makeup which I wore. It started off with the NYX Angel Veil Primer to prime my skin. I then applied my favourite True Match Foundation using a brand new dampened Beautyblender which work perfectly together. To cover those pesky blemishes I added the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer and a layer of my MAC Mineralise Powder using my Real Techniques Powder Brush. As I had a little bit of a tan from holiday I added some of my Wet n Wild Bronzer in Ticket to Brazil and a light dusting of Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure to my cheekbones. As it was a special occasion of course I needed some glitter and highlight to finish off my face makeup. I used the MUA Highlighter in Iridescent Gold to add some luminosity to my face using the Real Techniques Setting Brush.
I have been loving my Makeup Geek Eyeshadows recently and featured them in my September Favourites post. For this night, I used the shades Rebel, Pillow Talk and Starry Eyed. I used my MAC 217 Brush to apply and blend everything into my desired look, and added a thin line of my Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner. I then applied my favourite lashes from Cheryl's Eyelure collection in Sexy Senorita, and added a few coats of my Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. My lipstick choice for the night was MAC's Syrup, which is a beautiful purple toned nude which I think compliments my colourings and this look really well.
