Today is the day of my long awaited party and I thought to share me getting ready with you. I love watching these on YouTube so I thought I’d give it ago although it may be a bit difficult. Let’s see how this turns out!
Step 1: Nails
For my nails I wanted to go for more chic colours that went with my dress so first of all I buffed both my finger and toe nails with models own ‘s buffer block with created a soft canvas ready for me to paint. On my toes I used OPI’s Venice collection polish in the colour Worth a pretty penne which is an absolutely gorgeous coppery gold and my all time favourite colour. Then for my nails I wanted to go for a neutral colour so I used Avon ‘ s gel finish in I Pink I Can, this polish is really good as the finish is as if you’ve just had a gel manicure. The colour is a pretty muted pink.
Step 2: Pamper & Prep
This is the most important step to feeling refreshed and put together before a party. Obviously I had a shower and washed my hair with Head And Shoulders but as soon as I got dried I lathered my legs with Patisserie De Bain body souffle which moisturised my legs and made them feel silky smooth. Of course I applied my favourite Montagne Jeunesse Face Mask in Strawberry and once that had worked it’s magic I moisturised using L’Oréal Triple Active face cream. Once I was all pampered I felt refreshed.
Step 3: Hair
If I’m honest I didn’t do much to my hair once I had dried it I separated my hair at the crown and tied the top layer up. I then took small sections and using my THX curling iron, curled little parts for around 6 seconds before letting go. Once I did this for the bottom layer I did the same for the top. I then used Fudge Urban Sea Salt spray to give back some of the volume and to set it I used Asda hairspray. This look is very easy to do.
Step 4: Makeup
I used quite a few products for this makeup look. Starting with the rimmel primer I put a little bit on my hand and worked it into my face. Followed by the face Illuminator from Tanya Burr’s Palette, this gave a dewy base for me to work on. I then went in with dark circle concealer and my collection concealer to cover up any blemishes. The foundation I used was my l’orèal true match foundation as it’s brilliant for I perfected finish. Obviously on my eyebrows I used my Rimmel Brow This Way Eyebrow Kit and then onto the eyes… I mixed and matched for this eye look as I used every colour from the Tanya Burr Birthday Suit Palette however using the fortune favours the brave palette by makeup revolution I used Caffeine Fix and Super Gold for that perfect smoky eye, this was finished by putting ice cloud in the inner corners of my eye and using Barry M Show Girl Mascara to finish it all off. For a subtle blush I lightly dusted a Bourjois Little Round Pot Blusher in the shade frosted rose along the apples of my cheeks to give me a healthy glow. To finish this look off I lined and filled in my lips with a Barry M lip liner and then used L’Oréal Colour Riche Gold Obsession Nude Gold all over my lips to achieve a gorgeous coppery effect.
Step 5: Fragrance
To finish off my party look of course I had to wear Taylor by Taylor Swift as I got it for my birthday and it’s such a gorgeous warm scent. Perfect for parties!
There you have it, I hope you enjoyed getting ready with me and if you did just like this post and I’ll be sure to do more posts like these in the future.
