Tonight my best friend gave me a chance to be her 'personal stylist' I did her hair, make up and helped choose her dress and shoes. I was pretty impressed how well her make up went to be honest! Her dress is lipsy, I used a triple barrel waver to do her hair and used a range of different make up including 'Mac' foundation and 'Beauty uk' eyeshadows.
Firstly I did her hair with 'Diva- Heat Wave' wavers, which are very easy to use and give a great effect! I then used 'Mac' primer all over her face and eyes, applied 'Mac' concealer around her eyes and on spotty areas. Next I applied 'Mac- Studio Fix Foundation' all over her face. I used 'Techniques Brushes' to apply the whole base layer. Her smokey eyes were done by using a 'Betty Jackson' black kohl eyeliner along the lid and water line of the eyes, the pencil line was then smudged using a square edged brush up the outer sides of her eyes, I then applied a white eyeshadow into the inner corners of her eyes, smudging it into a light grey colour and then into a darker grey and black. I used 'Maybelline's gel liner with an angled brush along her eyelid close to the lashes. I also used this at the edges under her eyes. She then used a 'No7' mascara on her lashes.

Absolutely love these two lovely ladies, putting them together shows how similar they are in looks, which is strange. Been told on a few occasions that I look like them, which to me is a huge compliment!

Last night I wore my gorgeous 1950s blue dress to my mamma and grandad's party. I got this dress when I was 12, it has been worn for my hairspray by my cousin and for 'big writing day' at school in year 6, so last night was its first night out really! I've wanted to wear it for ages but not felt comfortable enough to wear it, last night I felt great and got told I looked it too! Today I sent one of the photos off to 'Vintage Life Magazine'. Wore my prom shoes which killed my feet too!
