Last Friday night was Employees’ Awards Night at our university and I was chosen as one of the usherettes (otherwise I wouldn’t have bothered dressing up or even going altogether). Contrary to my original plan of wearing my hair in Maria Mercedes curls, I decided at the last minute to just wear it up in a bun. I thought it would look better with the outfit; since the dress is a bit on the skimpy side, I figured a severe bun would lessen the overall siren factor (feelingera lang ang peg 😉 ).
Anywho, I used my Nichido eye pencil in Brown Black and e.l.f. eyeshadow quad in Butternut for the smokey eye look. For the nude lips, Human ♥ Nature tinted lip balm in Island Kiss and NYX round lipstick in Margarita. For the face, TonyMoly Dear Me Petite Cotton BB cream and Human ♥ Nature mineral pressed powder in Island Shell (which I applied with a kabuki brush instead of the included sponge puff). And finally, the blush included in my e.l.f. makeup palette (sorry, not sure what name but it was a light pinkish peach color).
I wore a classic LBD and red peeptoe heels for the affair. Kinda unplanned, I also had the huge shawl in the photo as a literal security blanket–I use it to add a modicum of modesty to my otherwise almost indecent dress when going up and down stairs and sitting down. 😀 Aside from my watch and simple black bracelet, this is my only other accessory:
Can I just say it was practically love at first sight when I saw this? Totally perfect foil to a boring classic dress. 😀
What do you think (aside from the fact that I have thunder thighs and need to lose weight)? 😉
