Cocktail Party FOTD

Last Friday saw my dear HP turn 25. We had a great day out at an amazing antiques place near her home. There was an amazing array of cabinets of old jewellery, ornaments, rows of vintage clothes and all the furniture I could ever want. The cafe stocked with cakes went down well too :) Then we went for a big lunch before coming home to paint our nails and get ready for the party we were having at night in our flat. It feels like ages since we have all been together getting dolled up, it is probably my favourite part of any big night! HP looked gorgeous in a black lace French Connection dress and I went for a ridiculously bright pink Mathew Williamson number in honour of the occasion.

Everyone looked so glam, and it was such a good night, There was all the cakes and cocktails you could ever want so I think everyone enjoyed it. My dress is now covered in chocolate liqueur so it must have been a success! 

Everyone looking fierce
Gorgeous ladies
The family Macleod
How amazing is the cake HP's Sis and Mum made?

Make up wise with the dress being so loud I wanted to keep it pretty simple so I went with:

excuse the weird face this was taken very quickly!

Face- Estee Lauder double wear light in shade 1, with a touch of Double Wear in Ecru on top for good measure. A dusting of Mac skin finish in medium plus to set.
Highlight- Mac CCB in Pearl with Laura Mercier Stellar eyeshadow dusted on top.
Blush- The Balm hot mama with a bit of Bourjois Rose D' Coupe De Foudre on top
Eyes- I went for a thick line of Kryolan cake liner in black using an angled brush over some UDPP and a dusting of Natural collection Matt light brown shade. I used Max Factor false lash effect on the lashes after curling with my Shu's.
Lips- no 17 Beehive
I then spritzed some of my favourite body shop rosewater to set and dabbed with a Sonia Kashuk sponge and then a light dusting of ELF HD powder to finish it all off. It lasted all night and I was pretty happy with it not looking like too much.

I want to do it all over again this weekend, half the decorations are still up - why not!?
