London Wedding

Hello hello, it’s been a while!

Over the past couple of months, life has been really hectic for me. Personal issues, work, uni…everything came in one go that I needed to take a step back and just focus elsewhere.

I took a long break from blogging but now I am back and I intend to stick to it!

Around a week ago my best friends sister got married in London! Me and my friend Anna hopped on a train, attended the event and had the chance to look around London for a few hours.

Saturday
We left Edinburgh around 11.30.

Later on in the evening after we had arrived, we decided to go out and grab dinner. I already had makeup on so I popped on Kylie Jenner liquid lipstick in Leo to make the overall look more evening appropriate.

Sunday

On the day of the wedding, we both woke up really early and started to get ready. Not gonna lie, I was actually a little bit stressed as I had decided to wear a sari. Since I had never worn one before in my life and had to do it alone, I really didn’t want to mess up!

Having seen the sari a few days before the big day, I knew that I didn’t want my makeup to look too dramatic.
For the eyes I used the Makeup Revolution ‘Eyes like Angels’ palette and my trusty Maya Mia palette by Anastasia Beverley Hills.
I blended warm toned eyeshadows into my crease and patted on a shimmery purple eyeshadow on my lids. I went for wispy eyelashes to compliment the eye makeup.

Onto my sari! I actually managed to tie it pretty nicely however when I left the wedding it literally came apart LOL!

I let Anna borrow one of my Asian suits which I then wore in the evening  for the second part of the wedding.

For the evening makeup look I went for defined brows, minimal base and lots of highlighter. As we woke up really early that morning, I did not want to keep my heavy base on so I actually took it all off and concealed/powdered where necessary.

Special Events- Highlight and Contour Routine

Hi lovelies,

Today I will be going through my highlight and contour routine which I tend to do when I am attending special events. It is a full coverage routine so hence why only for special occasions!

Highlight and contouring really depends on your face shape. The areas of your face you want to push in, you apply the dark product and the areas you want to bring out, you apply the light product.

Now it took me a while to get into the swing of the whole extreme contouring thing. It has become such a trend that people feel like they HAVE to do it. I really disagree since the art of contouring really depends on YOUR face shape. Where I may have to contour, for example along my nose to slim it down, some people could easily skip that if they already have a cute wee slim nose.

Liquid products:

Highlight

  • LA Girl Cosmetics orange concealer to counteract the dark circles under my eyes.
  • Maybelline Fit me Concealer in shade 20 to hide the orange tones
  • Extended down along my eyes for a bit more coverage
  • Patted it into skin with my Bare Minerals concealer brush
  • Further blended it into skin using a sponge

Contour

  • LA Girl Cosmetics concealer in Beautiful Bronze.
  • Applied some down my cheekbones, a little bit along my forehead, along my jaw line and down the sides of my nose.

Powders

To further highlight I took out my trusty Collection loose powder and ‘baked’ the concealer under my eyes with a LOT of powder using the same sponge. I applied this down the centre of my nose, on my forehead since its quite small and along the sides of my jaw to bring them out as I have a really round face.

I set the contoured areas with the Sleek Face Contour kit in medium. This also comes with a gold toned highlighter which I popped right on the tip of my nose and the high plains of my face.
After 10 minutes I dusted of the excess powder and I was left with nice highlighted face. My face literally looked air brushed and flawless from 1.30pm all the way till 3 in the morning! Caked it for a looong time ;o)
