One of my very good friends was getting married this week-end.
I must say that finding an outfit that would work for a late October wedding and all its weather uncertainties was quite a challenge, but I managed, and then built my makeup look around it : since I was wearing a black and pearl gray outfit with a quite busy pattern, this was calling for a simple makeup with a red lip.
However, you know me, I have to add a special touch, and I picked Paperself eyelashes for that purpose.
Here's what I was wearing, and you can see the amount of products was rather minimalist
The choice of the Shiseido lip lacquer was dictated by the fact that I knew I would be eating and drinking, and a lip lacquer does fade nicely and leaves a bit of a stain. So it never looked awful and it was easy to touch up after dinner.
The Paperself lashes were the small Peacock ones, which you apply at the outer corners. Although they're very delicate and the stem is extremely fine, they weren't too difficult to put on and they stayed perfectly put until I removed them. I was really impressed, and a bit sad when I took them off as you can't really use them again - you do get two pairs in the box, though.
I used Chanel Illusion d'Ombre in Mirifique (shimmery black) as a liner underneath, as it's so easy to apply and gives a soft look.
It was very nice to wear something a little bit different for a very special occasion!
What's your special occasion makeup? Have you ever used Paperself lashes?
