Make up and OOTD

Hi everyone.  I thought I’d do a post to show you what I’m planning on wearing tomorrow for a work function I’ve got in London.  It’s the opening of a new bank and my invitation says ‘business attire’ so I’ve dusted down my favourite suit and picked out shoes and accessories.  I so rarely wear a suit, that it’s quite a nice treat, and certainly makes me feel ‘business’.

The suit is a dress and jacket combination I’ve had for a couple of years and I bought from Warehouse.  I love it, as it’s really smart, but also comfortable and stylish.  The suit is dark grey with very faint lilac pin-stripes.  The dress is knee length, with a belt and ruched shoulder and button detailing.  The jacket is single-breasted, also has ruching at the shoulders and button detailing on the sleeves.  Both the dress and jacket have purple lining, which I love!

I’m going to wear some lilac heels from Next.  They are slightly distressed looking (but look even more distressed now), and have a buckle strap and a lowish heel, so I’ll be able to travel on the tube with them.

In terms of jewellery, I’ll be wearing a silver-coloured cuff, a vintage sparkly broach on the jacket and some silver-charm earrings.

I’ve also picked out my make-up for tomorrow, following on with the lilac theme.  I’m planning on using the lightest colour from the Boots No. 7 Organza palette on my lids, Shale by MAC through my crease – a fab taupe/purple colour, Nocturnelle by MAC on the outer V and Shroom by MAC on my brow bone and as a highlight.  It’s definitely an Urban Decay Primer Potion day, as my make-up crumbles and creases whenever I go on public transport, especially the tube. I’ve not decided on blush or lippy yet!

I’ve swatched the eye colours on my arm over Elf Eyelid Primer (about all it’s good for).  My arm's a bit tanned, so they don't show up as well as I hoped. From left to right, palest Organza, Shale, Nocturnelle, Shroom.

I probably won’t be posting over the next few days, as I’m manic at work at the moment, but should be back by the weekend!  Thanks for reading x
