The Wedding Guest

So I haven't written a post in almost a month, partly because so much has been happening but also because I've been suffering "bloggers block".
Similar to writers block, except I'm in no way a writer.
I will be doing an update post soon to fill you all in but thought I'd jump straight back into it with a make-up look for you all.

The Wedding Guest

Slasssssshhh Prom/Ball/Anything a little swish.

Meet my friend Sarah, isn't she gorgeous? Make-up, Hair and Photography is all my own.
Jewellery: Debenhams, Dress: H&M
So this is a look that I created for a college assesment that I thought I'd share with you all as it's so easy to achieve but perfect for special events!


So here I went for a "dewy" finish because it's my preference, but if you want a matte finish or are going to be photographed lots use a powder! For the face I started with Benefit high beam and went over with Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation. I used NARS Laguna Bronzer very lightly (this has strong pigmentation) as a subtle bronzer and the highlight from the Sleek Face Form contour kit. I also worked this over the neck and shoulders as it's a strapless dress.
 Highlighting the shoulders and collarbones is always beautiful on brides.


I kept the eyes soft so that it's a really versatile look. It could go with so many different dresses and events. Pop on some individual lashes and this could be a bridal.
I used the Urban Decay naked pallete, Virgin under the brow, and Sin, Toasted blended over the eye with Hustle in the crease. Use a fluffy blending brush to blend this into a soft smokey eye.
I used a black eyeshadow along the lash line as it gives a softer look than a liquid eyeliner.


The lips are really simple, I'd definitely use a pink for this. I mixed a pink lip shade from my Kryolan lip pallete and used a clear MAC lipglass over the top. 
For a long day when you want your lipstick to last, apply your lipstick, then place a thin piece of tissue over your lips and powder through it to set it!

What do you guys think?
Sorry it's not beautifully worded, I'm getting back into the swing of blogging again.
