'Hopeless Romantic' - What I wore to Harvey Nichols S/S13 Fashion Show.

I was covering the Harvey Nichols S/S13 show last night. I was mesmerised by the 'Hopeless Romantic' themed show. I decided to go for a Marilyn-esque make up look to go with my outfit I was wearing to the event. I wore my hair loose and wavy to the side and teamed a diamante pattern Zara playsuit,  pale lavender mohair Topshop cardi and my white concave studded Jeffrey Campbell's.

Also there is a link about my blog on the fashion show up on the main page of RTE Fashion.

This was my look at the HN S/S13 Fashion Show:
My look on the night.

My make- up look was easy to achieve. I used Lancôme primer, Lancôme teint idole foundation, Rimmel matte powder, fuchsia lippy and lip liner. I wore Georgia Salpa lashes. I used a peachy blusher but kept the make-up as bright and porcelain as I could. I used some bronzer to contour my cheeks below the blusher on my jawbones. The primer was a great base. I used an essence white eyeshadow on my eyelids and on the bridge of my nose, above my cheekbones and beneath my brow arch as a highlighter and illuminator. I used black winged Rimmel 'exaggerate' liner to complete my eye make up. Take your time doing this - do a thin line from the inner corner outwards and patiently experiment until you feel your slant is pronounced enough. I used a benefit brow pallet to shape my brows into a full retro pin-up arch. I used it quite sparsely as my hair is quite blonde and I didn't want the brows too heavy, a little goes a long way. I used the eyebrow pencil to give me a Hollywood freckle above my lip to complete my pouty Retro Hollywood look.

I hope you liked my look for the show! If you have any questions feel free to ask! :)

Have a nice weekend!
