DIY, Fun

Wedding Guest Glam

So, your’s truly was a wedding guest over the weekend and decided to do her own makeup. By Herself.

I had to choose between a bold smoky eye/nude lips or simple eyes/red lips. Because it was an evening wedding and I’ve rocked many a red lip recently, the smoky eye look won. Countless youtube tutorials later, I said a little prayer to the makeup gods to be merciful [seeing as a smoky eye is one of the trickiest] and I set to it.

Whooooooooooo’s that guuuuuuuuuuurl

Even I had to pat myself on the back like woah! I mean, look at the perfection of that eye. Not one stroke out of place.

I wasn’t wearing falsies with this look because I just don’t know how to put them on myself. No matter how hard I try, I always end up tearing up so much that it ruins my makeup. So instead of bothering, I simply made my mascara prove its worth by applying 3 coats – one minute intervals in between.

 **warning – selfie overload**

By the time I finished my contour, I was like wuuuuuuuuuu….. Hello cheek bones! Slasher Fierce. Lol

Nothing gets you that perfect selfie like when you find your light. Lighting is everything.

And then I let my hair down………….   


Worked out perfectly and I was happy with what I created. Do you like?

Perhaps it’s time to add MUA to my resume… lol

Have a great week ahead guys

Besos xx
