On Wednesday night I'm going to the Leeds Uni Law Ball as a date to someone. I say this as though I have no right to be there myself when in fact I do, I have just thus-far managed to avoid said occasion. However, I am going to be in attendance this year, and could I say, it's been a lot more work (and money!) than what was initially anticipated! I have the dress, the shoes, the handbag and the accessories, but I'm still stuck on hair and makeup. I want to do something different. I know I'm going to wear my hair up, which will be a mammoth task in itself, but I don't know what I'm doing with my makeup.
My dress is pale pink, so I'm not going to go wild on the colour front as I would most likely end up looking like a dragon. I'm decided on soft pink lips, I just need to decide on the eyes now. These are my picks for inspiration.
Most of you will have seen the first look on Facebook, I must have seen it a hundred times now. But every time I look at it, I think how beautiful it looks. I'd swap the peach tone for a pink though, something like 'Expensive Pink' from MAC which is a bronzy dusky pink.
I'm also in love with the lips on the third look, the fact that they're so luminous really attracts me.
I think I'd like to aim for a sort of cross between the first and third images, although I do love how sultry the final look is. I think I need to have a play around with some shades and see what I think. If I get time, I'll pop a few looks on here and see what you ladies prefer?
I hope you're all having a lovely day!
