Sounds so futuristic....
I'm sure you're all dolled up to the nines for your New Year Celebrations and here, it's no exception.
If I were to head out on New Years Eve it would have to be in a setting full of luxury and decadence, a lovely ballroom steeped in ornate brass fittings and draped red velvet. With Champagne in crystal on silver platters, a pianist and a small string orchestra playing softly in the background.
With all this in mind I dressed for my date :D
I was ridiculously lucky and managed to pick up an authentic Roland Klein vintage black evening dress. Not only that but instead of the £60 upwards price you can expect to pay on such a dress, I snapped it up on Ebay at £1.79!!!
It features a black 'slip' with a front split ( and pockets! ) covered with a fine layer of sparkled chiffon.
You can wear the neck open or tied.
A simply stunning dress.
But first things first...... my make up look for tonight...
I wanted a hint of glitter and sheen for the 'starlet' based look but didn't want to go overboard.
This is what I used:
Eyeshadow Palette (from my Mother In Law for Christmas) simply called Catwalk Colour Eyeshadow (I used the purple shade only)
On top of the purple shadow I added a very fine dusting of the Bellapierre Harmoney that I recieved in Novembers Feel Unique Beauty Box.
My Collection 2000 Extreme Liquid Eyeliner
And I used a bronzer for highlighting my cheeks. I usually stick to pink shades and this is more dark golden but I thought it would appear a little more dramatic, perfect for a special occasion.
The two mascaras to get the False Lash Effect as featured in the Faking It post a while ago.
And the lipstick is from Avon, it's gorgeous and glossy, didn't cost much and most importantly when you smudge it, it stays put! Just the ticket for those midnight smooches ;)
Ready for a New Years Ball...
It is true, that feeling they tell you about when you wear a beautifully cut garment... It's second to none.
My accessories for the evening are my marabou fan purchased from Ann Summers for just £5 and this gorgeous necklace and earrings. They're not a set as such but they work well together.
I'm sorry I can't remember where I got these but I do know they were cheap as chips ;)
And so, followers, readers, friends and family as I sit here in my finery...
May I raise a glass to you all,
Well, a good old cup of tea ;)
Wishing you all a Very Happy New Year
