Get Ready With Me- Formal Event!

A while back I attended a formal event which meant that I could dress up more than usual!

My sister took some photos to document getting ready with me, so here we go!

Firstly, I did my base makeup which ultimately includes the following: 

-I buffed the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation in 200 soft beige into my skin using the H&M foundation brush.
-Then I concealed under my eyes and around my nose using the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in 020 true ivory and the Collection concealer in medium 3 to cover any spots and blemishes. 

- This was all sealed in and made matt by using the Avon powder in sand. 

Now for the eyes. 

- I used the Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24 hour in 65- Pink Gold as a base all over my eye lid. I love this creamy product as I generally have really dry skin, especially around my eyes so this creates a nice smooth surface for the rest of the eye makeup.

- Then I used the Maybelline My Shadow in 125 which is a matt nude colour, on top of the cream shadow, which corrected the pinky colour of my lids.

-I then used my Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette and used the brown colour to define my crease then went on to use the dark blue shimmery colour to create a 'V' shape on my outer crease to define it more. 

- I used the colour Venus from my Urban Decay Naked Basics palette in the inner corners of my eye and below my brow to highlight.

-Of course, Maybelline The Falsies (waterproof) was coated on my lashes!

- On the apples of my cheeks I used Guipure from my Sleek by 3 Lace palette which is one of my all time favourite blushes.

- I used the Ted Baker Illuminator to highlight the tops of my cheekbones for a dewy finish.

- I lined and filled in my lips with Rimmel Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Pencil in spice 011 and finished with the Rimmel Stay Glossy lipgloss in Orange Up Your Life. 

Once I had finished my makeup, I used my BaByliss hair straighteners to give a wave through my hair by twisting sections, as shown above. 

I used the M&S Formula self tan lotion to give my skin a glow and then topped it off with the Vaseline essential moisture body lotion.

I had my nails done with shellac by the lovely nail artist at my local salon; my ring is from Accesorize. 

This is my finished eye makeup look close up!

My shoes are from M&S!

So this is the finished product! My dress is from Dorothy Perkins and my bag is vintage. 

I love getting ready to go out so I hoped you enjoyed it too! I had such a great night!

Have a nice day!

  1. I like the formal events. We have to dress up in formal clothes in this type of https://papernow.org/literature-review-writing-service space. I like to collect dresses in this color. Because this color attracts me a lot. I have every sade of yellow resting in m cupboard right now.

  2. I completely resolved my question when I read this post, thanks to the author for the very detailed description. I wrote my review on the https://ukbestessays.org/assignmentdesk-review/, you can go in and read. Thank you very much for your attention in your time.

  3. It's just stunning. Because I'm engaged right now, I'm feeling somewhat emotional. But I don't have any time till my assignment is accomplished, so I purchase it from Best Essay Writer and I'm glad. I'm ready for my engagement, and my family says it's really gorgeous, so I'm overjoyed.
