Just a quick post today for a look a did before this horrid winter settled in. It felt like the last sunny warm day for a long time so I decided to go for a cute summery look for a lolita-fashion event. When I was younger, my face was covered with freckles but over the years they’ve faded which is a shame because it wasn’t until later in life where I really started to love my freckles! There’s been a bit of a trend these days with drawing freckles on which I think is great!
This post is long overdue because I actually ordered my Missha Wonder Woman items back when the limited release first began! I wasn’t intending on doing an actual review though as this is a limited release but I was so impressed with the quality that I wanted to share my joy for Missha eyeshadows with everyone so if you’re keen to see some swatches and read some honeyed words, please continue on!
Today’s post is my attempt to practise a long lasting makeup look. I’m getting married in October (woot!) and to try and save money, I’ve decided to do my own makeup but before that, I want to make sure I have plenty of practise and I also want to make sure I can get a good long-lasting look down pat, one that looks fresh even after 12 hours (dreaming big, right?) I decided to do a bit of a write up so I can remember what aspects of my first attempt worked well, what needs improving and what needs to totally change. I find that I’ll look back on a FOTD that I’ve done and, whilst I was happy with it at the time, I’ll be quite a bit more critical of it in future, I think we’re all our harshest critic though right?
Many tips I read when it comes to doing makeup for a big event is to ensure that you’re happy with how it looks in multiple lighting scenarios (if that’s applicable) – basically does it look good in natural lighting, indoors and with flash photography so I’ve decided to do this today. The above photo is with indoor, cool-toned lighting and for most part, I’m pretty happy with how it looks. It’s certainly not a traditional wedding look but I’m not a traditional girl really, a dark/berry lip and shimmery eyes is my go-to look and I want that to be represented in my look for the day, it’s what I love!
