Quite the formal occasion…

I have been incredibly delayed in posting these past few weeks. With the conclusion of my final exams, my year 12 formal, training for work, and finally, actually working, I have had little to no time to properly edit all of my drafts!

With that being said, however, here I am, finishing what I started and meant to do almost two weeks ago!

On November 19, at 2:00pm, I was free from the burden that was exams. After (accidentally)  swearing on my Italian exam, and stressing about my formal dress for weeks, the day had finally come; the day that I had planned to do none other than prepare solely for that night. I booked a makeup application appointment with Mecca Maxima at Highpoint, and then a hair styling appointment at my favourite local salon, Linear in Caroline Springs.

The makeup artist, I believe her name was Jess, was incredibly sweet, and so talented. I felt like crying when I had to wash off my eye makeup! They don’t call them makeup ‘artists’ for nothing!

As a result of the makeup application, I could redeem $90 worth of products!!! I was so excited because I had been planning and waiting for this for months!

I redeemed:

 Kit. Cosmetics False Eyelashes (paparazzi)

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer (In Custard)

 Nars Albatross Highlighter 

Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in Bangkok

Yes, I know, Nars overload, but boy was it worth it!!! 

My formal dress was from a boutique called Seagulls of St. Kilda on Acland Street, and after a lot of deliberation, I fell in love with this dress!

The only complaint that I can make is that my ridiculously un-photogenic self doesn’t have one decent full length photo from the night! Regardless, here are my attempts!

Beauty haul and November Favourites will be up soon!
