The night before our Year Ender Party, I spent time trying to create a makeup look for the event and I thought gray smokey eyes paired with pink nude lips would suit my dark blue gown. I practiced just to make sure that on the next day, I would be able to recreate it faster since I only had about 1 hour or so to do my hair and makeup. It turned out, I failed to do the same exact look. Boohoo! I was like, what the hell happened! HAHA! But, let me share it anyway and also, a bonus side story about my gown-hunting.
Here it is. All gray and black for the eyes with va va voom upper and lower lashes. As for the lips, I chose a pink nude color. Highlighter also played a key role.
By the way, the products in the photo are just for examples. They are all from Google Images.
I used matte eye shadows for this look because I didn't want to be all sparkly.
Here's my pair of Red Cherry lashes. I absolutely love it! My mascara did a great job as well on my lower lashes.
If you don't have a highlighter stick or powder, you can also use a pearly or shimmery white eye shadow.
A light pink blush would also be a nice complement to this kind of eye makeup.
I also tried on a few lipsticks, but pink seemed to be the perfect match.
That's it! I'll show you the actual look and the complete outfit as well on a separate post.
Kris and I decided to just rent a tux and a gown. The theme was all about black, blue and silver and luckily, there's an available formal dress for me in a royal blue color.
We went to Marikina to visit this gown rental shop called Royanne Camillia. Their formal wear ranges from 1000 to 2500 pesos.
I fell in love with this fitting area. I also spotted several gorgeous gowns and cocktail dresses, so if you need one for an upcoming event, go and visit this shop.
Here's the other choice.
It's a simple black silk dress with nice back straps.
I liked the length and fit, but it's not padded and I would need to wear adhesive bra, so it's a no-no for me.
Here's my choice. #backlessgain
It's longer than the other one.
Check out how I styled it on my Lookbook series.
As for Kris, he opted for a black and silver combination.
