A Day at the Races Pic Heavy

Last weekend The weekend before it was Cup Day at the Races, one of the days where everyone gets dressed up & has a bit too much to drink, haha. You don't have to go to bet, although I did put a few small ones on though & only won a tiiny bit that didn't make up for anything, ahah.
Anyway, with my makeup I felt a bit like someone from the Old Hollywood era, with red lips & neutral eyes. However lashes & eyeliner spiced up the neutral eyes. Warning: Super Posey pics ahead

I wont mention it.. but if you see it don't worry I have fixed it since!

Awwe bubby girl didn't really want a pic.

Didn't really get any good pics of my dress unfortunately, but you can kinda see it here
It was white & lacy all over, quite short (I never wear any dresses that short so constantly had my hands & my sides lol) & if you can kinda see, it had a wide frilly collar that went up at the back. I wore it with nude heels although It would have looked good with colour. I have had this for about 2 years & haven't worn it coz I was waiting for the right time, but I got it for $9.95 from Temt. Bargain!

-Stila Kitten on the lid.
-MAC Satin Taupe in the crease
-Blended with UD Naked.
-Applied Nyx Slate JEP on the lashline & softly blended up, with UD Gunmetal over the top & deepened with UD Creep.
-Black from the Barbie <3 Stila trio on the lower lashline blended into Kitten.
-Red Cherry #43 Eyelashes.

-Australis Paparazzi Perfect Fdnt- Nude. This Fdtn claims to not cause a white cast, which it didn't on this day probably because I had good lighting for my pictures.
-MAC Strobe Cream
-Nars Orgasm Blush
-I used my Coastal Scents 15 concealer palette for contouring followed by Nyx Taupe Blush & used the highlighter from the same palette.

-Maybelline Are You Red-dy L/S (I love this! What do you think of it on me? And please correct me if I'm wrong but I would say this is blue based.)

With my hair I curled it using a pretty large roller, I think its 1 1/2 inches & pinned it up to my head to cool down, doing it in pretty random sections. Then I let it down but didn't comb it out because I knew it would drop, but it held itself pretty much all day & night!

I was going to post my makeup for the "after party" but I think I will leave that for another post, so I don't slow down your computers!

Just for fun!
