Another Wedding!

A lack of updates, I know. Busy going to parties, studying, and moving the bf in his new home! I wanted to share this little bit with you, although I didn’t take nearly enough photos.. Another cousin got married, and I was invited to the evening party πŸ™‚

I wore a simple red dress, with a dark blue belt around my waist and a bolero jacket. I wore the shoes I wore at my previous wedding too πŸ™‚

For my nails, I went for a stripey blue/red mani:

I used Catrice’s Be Indiglow! and a polish from Hema (the red). I got my striping tape from BornPrettyStore in a ‘Lucky bag’.

I again didn’t take a picture of my eye/face look (and this time it didn’t get smudged by some tears :P) but I wore a black eye liner with a wing (Essence) and a combination of eyeshadows on my lid. In the corner I wore a shimmery light yellow, then a bright bronze on the entire lid, and Essence Metal Glam in (I think) Steel-ing the SceneΒ in the outer corner and crease. On my lips I wore a bright red matte lipstick from Hema.

I apologise for the lack of posts and pictures, but I hope my words painted a picture for you πŸ™‚

Wedding guest outfit

A few weeks ago, my cousin got married to her boyfriend of 5 years! Even though I’m not very much of a girly-girl, weddings always make me very excited! Of course I love the happy people, the beautiful bride and groom, the gorgeous cake (did I mention I love cake? :D), the incredible food, the great atmosphere, seeing family again.. And being able to go all out on a cute outfit, matching nail art and awesome make up! I went shopping with my mom for a summery dress, because most of the wedding would be outside. I originally wanted to go for something in a pastel shade, but the yellow-white striped version of this dress just wasn’t as gorgeous as the one with dark blue stripes!

We visited quite a lot of shops, but in the Zara they had a billion of adorable dresses! I picked up this beauty for about 28 euros, so I guess this would fit most budgets! I’m also not a very skinny person, but this dress made me look quite fabulous! The body is quite tight, but riiight where my belly starts, the dress flares out πŸ™‚ I haven’t made any pics with the dress on, but this is what it looks like on the hanger:

Isn’t it pretty?! I’m still in love with it!

Since we were invited for the wedding all day, I didn’t think wearing heels would be a good idea. I did have some bright red Vans, which I initially wanted to wear, or my mom’s pastel yellow ones. Both wouldn’t be a very good match for this dress, so we went into the Van Haren (Dutch budget shoe shop) and these great fake Vans were pretty much screaming at me!

Just look at how the insoles match the pattern and colours of my dress!! Plus, they were only about 10 euros, and very comfortable, so I just HAD to get them.

On my nails I decided to go with a white to dark blue gradient. Luckily, the dark blue Catrice polish from my recent blog sale haul was the exact right blue shade. Unfortunately, I think I forgot to take proper pictures (if I find them, I’ll add them of course!) so you’ll have to do with this snapshot I took with my phone:

I used Catrice Sing: Hey Dirty Lilah! as a base coat, since it was the lightest shade of polish I owned at that moment. I then sponged on the LE White and Seek and Be Indiglow!

Unfortunately, I didn’t take ANY pics of my eye/face look, since I was kind of hurried. I especially loved my eye look (which kind of got ruined due to a very emotional moment.. *sigh*). I made a bold black cat eye, with a bright blue eyeliner above that. I lined my lower lash line with two shades of blue eyeliner pencil (just subtly) and added a regular mascara. I also tightlined (like, drew on the upper waterline, if that makes sense) my eye with an intense black. Again, if I find pictures (or recreate the look) I’ll tell you! For the rest of my face I stole my mom’s bb cream and a translucent loose powder, and a rose/glittery lipstick. I don’t remember any of the brands unfortunately xD

And, I have another wedding tomorrow! Not sure what I’m going to wear yet, it’s only the evening party this time, so I’ll probably wear a less summery look. Might even go for heels if I dare!
