Event: End of Year Ball

I attended the End of Year Ball held by the medical science society I am a member of. It was somewhat of a large gathering of students in various years of their program, majority of them in their 3rd year. We shared a meal and dessert before dancing to some music and drinking. So naturally at the end of the night, I looked like a miserable mess but I had a lot of fun.

Most people don't even notice the perfume but for me, the scent is the most important aspect of the outfit. I chose Guerlain Shalimar because it was just one of those scents perfect for a formal occasion. It smells a little bit old fashioned for a modern gathering like this but I loved it.

As for my clothes:
I'm the first on the right.


Clothes and accessories:
Necklace: ASOS
Bracelets: Baublebar Phased Out bangles and braided bracelet was a birthday gift
Top: Kmart
Skirt: Op Shop (Mr K)
Shoes: Miss Shop
Clutch - Marco Gianni

Since the clutch had limited space, I had to carefully choose what to bring. Of course, I needed my ID, my ticket, my phone and some extra cash. I kept my iPod in there too for the trip to and back. Lastly, I needed the lipstick I was wearing, a lip brush since I prefer a cleaner look for a red lip and some facial spray. The facial spray was heaven sent for someone who's just exited the dance floor all hot and sweaty and needed to cool down.

As for hair, I just made a haphazard attempt to curl it. Makeup-wise, I had planned out what I wanted a month prior.



Makeup:
Primer: Laura Mercier Oil Free
Foundation: NARS Sheer Glow in Fiji
Setting powder: Besame Violet Powder
Eyebrows: NARS Coconut Grove
Eyeshadow base: Maybelline Barely Branded Color Tattoo
Eyeshadow: Illamasqua Femme Fatale (all four colours)
Eyeliner: Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner
False lashes: Model Rock (with Duo glue)
Mascara: L'oreal False Lash Wings
Blush: Sleek Rose Gold blush
Bronzer: NARS Laguna
Highlighter: NARS Albatross
Lipstick: Illamasqua Maneater
Nails: Essie Ladylike

I'll miss them all.
