TOWIE Series 8…it’s a wrap – The Make up, The Outfit, The Hair
Well, I am currently writing this post
sprawled out like an absolute heffer sitting on my sofa with a McDonald’s in one hand, and coffee in the other. Usually, I have no valid excuse for my state of trampiness. Today however, I do. Last night you see (Wednesday night, in typical fashion I ended up posting this 4days later #uselessblogger) was the TOWIE wrap party. It was also my first proper night OUT out in 3months, a free bar and a hello to my social life again. In other words, it was never going to end well!
The party was at No5 Cavendish Square, which is one of my favourite venues and there’s not much else to say other than that it was an amazing, albeit pretty messy night, which quite clearly shows in the pictures. Oh, and to warn you/apologise in advance that this post is pretty much a photo-bomb of the TOWIE cast and crew. If you have no interest in the show/haven’t got a clue what it is, this post will probably be extremely boring for you, if you do know and like the show, this post….will probably bore you too (great self promotion there Elle, knock yourself before anyone else can and all that…) I have however wacked in a bit of fashion and beauty towards the end i.e what I wore – I will never be able to write that without feeling like
Jimmy Saville a raving pervert – and what make up I went for. Riveting info for you all there. Just riveting…
Don’t ask why/how I look so deformed in the photo above. I always knew I was flexible but I’ve almost done an ‘exorcist’ and plonked my head onto my shoulders. Attractive….
And of course, a TV wrap party isn’t a wrap party without a good photo booth is it? Disclaimer * as a warning/please forgive me/apology/please don’t unfollow me…in advance, I will reiterate the following. It was a free bar, it was my first big night out in what seemed like forever and we do work very hard. What I’m trying to say is
we I pretty much look like a pile of shit in every single picture. Don’t say you wasn’t warned!
….I wasn’t joking about the ‘pile of s**t’ thing was I? You certainly bloody wasn’t screams the world!
Now, onto the outfit and make up. Firstly though – oh hurry up and get on with it you rambly bitch – I actually need to put it out there that on the day of the party I had been up since 6am and had done a full days work. (That’s it, cover your back love!) So you can forgive me for my hair, make up, outfit and practically everything on my personal being for being a bit ropey can’t you? Ahh, thank goodness for that!. What an understanding bunch you are 😉
Right, time for the make up, not that anybody would want to resemble my face, I am well aware of that. I am more listing this for my own benefit because I get embarrassingly happy talking about make up. Does that make me sad? Yes. Does that make me a loser? Probably. Do I care? Absolutely not!
Some products not included in this picture because…I was too lazy to root through my make up bag to find them. Someone say lazy bitch? LAZY BITCH
Mac Studio Tech – a mix of NC25 and NC30 to get a perfect match. Why is NC27 slightly pink by the way Mac experts? Or is it just me? Definitely just you love.
Nars Laguna – it’s a classic and it’s coming to an end and I’m actually gutted which definitely makes me a saddo and a bit of a tight arse!
Mac Well Dressed blush – don’t check the packaging, it’s a sign of being well loved!
Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder in Candlelight – there’s a mouthful and a half
Urban Decay Smog – across the lid and under the bottom lash line
Urban Decay Half baked – in the centre of the lid
Collection Felt tip liner – it’ll always be Collection 2000 in my eyes
Maybelline Gel liner on the upper and lower waterline. Watery eye central!
Maybelline The Rocket Waterproof – Love this. Review to come…
Mac Lashes in Number 3 – not pictured as I woke up to them screwed up and stuck to my arms. Classy
Random browny/grey eyeshadow through the brows – I pride myself on being thorough with details, obviously…
Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Liptick – love the colour, hate the artificial smell.
Mac Angel – my first and all time fave Mac lipstick.
And for those of you not as superficial as me and on the verge of nodding off to sleep, some more snore worthy info for you coming up. Here’s what I wore….
Now, as shocking as this is to believe, I never actually got a full length picture of me in my dress on the night (hence the dodgy ‘test run’ pic from when I tried it on 3days before, with no fake tan, no makeup and greasy hair. What a beaut!) The real reason for that is I was in too much of a rush to get to the venue and once I was there I was too enamoured in the photo booth and bar to even remember. I would’ve taken one when I arrived home but…well, there are no words to describe the state in which I arrived home in. Well, maybe one. Rough!
Oh and just to finish the whole ‘look’ off, if you fancy recreating my hair; find the nearest hedge, find your nearest enemy, and get them to drag you through it backwards. That will pretty much do it.
So there you have it, if you’ve actually made it to this point, you deserve a blue peter badge (remember those?) and also a thank you – and congrats, you’re hardcore readers 😉 – from me. I often get many messages about my work and personal life so I hope this post was interesting for you guys, and if it wasn’t, I’ll be back to writing about all things superficial in the next post.
As always, thank you so much for reading!
