Ello ello sweetpeas! Enjoying the weekend? For once I’m actually NOT wailing in despair at the thought of going back to work seeing as next week will be a nice short one for moi. Tis mumma bears birthday tomorrow, she is of course turning 40 again as she has been doing so for the past errmm…few years ;) As a birthday treat the two of us will be heading off to a spa on Thursday for a day of pampering & relaxation, I literally cannot wait! The spa we’re going to is one we went to last year & really enjoyed so we’re both really looking forward to going back. :D
Yesterday saw a successful shopping trip including a pretty new bathing suit from H&M for aforementioned spa trip as well as finally picking up a gorg coral chiffon waterfall dress that I cannot wait to wear, I’ve been seeing them everywhere & held back from buying for some unknown reason but no longer! So pretty & feminine it is! There were lots of other colours available too including a divine mint green & pastel blue…I’m tempted to get more! Eeeep! :-/
You may remember me mentioning that I went to a family wedding recently, it was as usual a fun & food filled affair with plenty of colour as is the norm with Asian weddings ;) Here’s what I decided to wear as well as the makeup look I went for…
This outfit was made for me by an aunt & is one of my favourites, red is definitely one of my favourite colours to wear when it comes to Asian weddings! I especially love the jewelled detailing on the front & decided on my black & gold spiked heels from Dolcis & a gold & ruby antique-y artificial jewellery set to wear with it.
For my makeup I decided to go for a heavy black smokey eye look, with bronzed cheeks & my usual nude lips…I WILL venture into bright lips one of these days! ;)
Face – Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer, MAC Studio Tech Foundation in NC35 & MAC MSF Natural in Medium
Cheeks – Barry M Natural Dazzle Bronzer to contour & Victoria Jackson Bronze Shimmer on cheekbones
Lips – No7 Nude lip liner, Carmex & Sleek True Colour lippie in NakedEyes – NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean (applied over entire lid) Black eye shadow from NEXT smokey eye palette (patted on top & smoked out to crease & outer V) MAC Fluidline Blacktrack Gel Eye Liner (along upper lashline, waterline & winged out from the corners) finishing with 17 Maximum Volume Mascara.
Hope you liked the Asian OOTD & FOTD my lovelies! Thanks as always for stopping by! Till next time!
