I hope you're all well!
I recently attended the wedding of one of my boyfriend's close friends and as you would expect, I spent months planning my outfit. What can I say? I'm one of those people!
Here's what I wore...
Dress - Oasis
Strappy heels - Next
I spent AGES trying on dresses - literally I must have ordered about 10-15 and I was taking photos of myself in every single dress, each time wearing heels then not heels, wearing a belt and then not wearing a belt... I must have sent my boyfriend and sisters about 50 pics for them to have a look at!
In the end, I didn't go for any of the dresses I ordered (soz guys who had to trawl through all those pics!) - instead I spotted this dress in Oasis just off Oxford Street and fell in love with it straight away. If you can't make out from the photo, the lower half of the dress is pleated which I think is really pretty, while the high-neck, fitted style on the top half is flattering on my bust. I'd definitely recommend Oasis for this sort of occasion dress.
BASE: Benefit That Gal primer, YSL Touche Eclat under eyes, MAC Studio Finish concealer on blemishes, NARS Sheer Glow foundation (buffed in with Real Techniques Buffing Brush), Bare Minerals pressed powder, NARS Laguna bronzer and Orgasm blush, Benefit High Beam to highlight (obsessed!), Urban Decay setting spray.
EYES: Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion, Urban Decay Naked 1 palette (Buck, Smog and Darkhorse), L'Oreal Paris Superliner waterproof liner, Benefit They're Real mascara.
BROWS: MAC Omega eyeshadow (applied with MAC 208 Angled Brow Brush), set with No7 Clear Brow gel.
LIPS: Lush Bubblegum lip scrub, L’Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire in Rose Symphony.
Classic, indecisive me also spent bloody AGES choosing my lip colour - I must have taken 20-30 photos of different lip colours and sent them all to my sisters for approval lol. From bold orange (MAC Lady Danger) to vampy red and matte nude, I really couldn't decide what lip colour to go for...
In the end, I had a little rummage through my mum's make-up drawer and found this L'Oreal lippie - I knew it was the perfect colour straight away! It complemented the colours of the flowers on the dress and finished off my look without overpowering the dress.
By the way guys, while I'm on the topic - those L'Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire hippies are in TK Maxx at the moment - I picked up the coral shade in Balham for about 3 quid! They're amazing if you want a pretty pop of coloured gloss! They're not sticky at all either. I must have at least 3 or 4 shades...
Have you got any weddings coming up? What do you plan to wear?
