Just wanted to share the look I wore to the Audi Fashion Festival 2011 Shapes & Shadow show, that I had attended some time back.
I wanted to attempt a slightly smokier then usual look since it's not often that I can wear a dramatic smokey look and not feel 'too made up'.
I didn't manage to take any pictures of the look until I got back home at night, and I'm pretty surprised that my makeup still looked pretty good on even after 6 hours and blotting once. For that I will have to give credit to the Shu Uemura Mousse base, one of my favorite bases to use right now.
A nice surprise at the event was we were each given a pair of Shu Uemura lashes to spruce up our look for the night. I went with this pair and Sophia (retailtherapy) helped me put them on using Shu's lashglue (which has some crazy heavy duty hold!)
We didn't use all the partial bits, instead we used a total of 4 pieces, 2 on the outer corner of each eye.
The effect was really natural but gave a nice emphasis to the lashes as well, I'm really liking how these lashes look on!

If anything, I must say I'm probably eyeing the Shu Uemura lash glue right now. The grip and hold of that thing is really no joke and for a false lash newbie like me, that would really put my mind at ease when wearing falsies out.
Thanks for reading!
