Get Ready With Me - Maroon edition!

Monday, 29 September 2014

My friend Daisy and I had planned a night out at Bodo Schloss, so I took a few pictures for a great ready with me blog.

I planned the whole thing around this top:

Now the issue is - Saturday morning on Instagram I saw three other people who wore this top out on Friday night. I picked three different ways to style it, so this might help if you have something other people do too!
1. Pair it with maroon coloured disco pants. This looked pretty cool and I will wear it out another day, but Daisy said that it made the top less of a statement.
2. Wear it with a longish black skirt. But the rule is legs or boobs so I didn't go with that one.
3. Pair it with black disco pants. This is what I ended up doing as it made the top the statement piece of the outfit.

Now, makeup. I wanted to do a red maroon coloured smokey eye and I must say that I thought it looked awesomeee. Deffo something I will do again.

I started with my base:
The same as usual, smashbox primer, L'Oreal inflallible foundation, bobbi brown concealer, Maybelline highlighter and then I mixed things up and used my cream bronzer by Chanel.

I then used Fergie Wet and Wild powder under my eyes, my new Sleek rose gold blush, my Sleek contour kit and my Estee Lauder highlighter.

I then moved onto the eyes which are the main bit!
I used the Sleek Storm palette below:


I used the matte light brown colour (top row third from the left) as my transition shade and using a fluffy brush put that in my crease. A transition shade is good as you can buff other colours into it. I then applied the pinky shade (top row second from the right) all over my eyelid. I then used the dark maroon (top right) in my crease and smudged that up. I used the lightest shade (top row second from the right) on my browbone and also in my tear duct. I smudged the maroon colour under my lower lashes too and darkened this area and the top lash line with the black eyeshadow rather than an eyeliner.
This wasn't red enough for me though :(
So I borrowed Daisy's palette below (sorry for the terrible picture) and put the reddy shade all over my lid. That was the pop of colour I was looking for so I will have to find a similar shade somewhere.

It looked so cool!
I then added Kimberly Eyelure Girls Aloud lashes and lined my waterline with eyeliner.
And the eyemakeup is done!



I then picked my outfit whilst Daisy did her hair and decided how I wanted my hair. Daisy is amazing at doing hair so whenever we go out I rope her into doing mine!



I went for big curls




I literally felt like a mermaid. We used my Foxy Locks extensions and straightened with GHDs.


 Thank you Daisyyyy.

Then it was time for lips!
Matte Me in birthday suit which I LOVE

And I was readyyy.
Excuse the fact that my hair is blocking the light and therefore highlighting my tummy terribly! If my tummy looked like that I would not wear a crop top!







Time to partyyyy 

Check out that girl with the headband hating!
