Masquerade Makeup breakdown and Photobooth Pictures

 I went to my boyfriend's cousin's 21st masquerade party last weekend. A nice venue, bar tab, double tiered chocolate mudcake and a photobooth. Admittedly, it's been a while since I've attended a 21st as most of my friends are sprinting towards their mid 20s.

I couldn't help but to think back to my own 21st (click here) - a disaster by the way, I was carried home by three friends at 10pm with one too many long islands. Although I was mildly unconscious, I could hear them talk, "She looks skinny but she's so heavy!!! Let's take her shoes off and cut some weight"

Sometimes I wished that I had a conventional 21st..... venue, family, food, speeches and a dance floor.

Anywho, for this 21st, we "kind of" dressed up, boyfriend wore a batman mask and I wore some sparkly mask.

I had a lot of fun with this new found photobooth. I've heard legends of "the booth" at various parties... it was like the lockness monster to me, heard but never seen.


 Here's a few of my favourite photos from the booth.

Now to the makeup breakdown...

  • Shiseido Hydro liquid compact foundation
  • Revlon age defying concealer
  • Shiseido shimmering cream eye colour in SV810
  • Shiseido eyelash curler 
  • Benefit they're real mascara
  •  Bobbi Brown bronzing powder in Light
  • Klara Cosmetics kiss proof lips in 03

The actual colour is a lot darker and brighter than this.

And my favourite teddy bear scarf :)

    My 21st was more on the traditional side but I remember thinking how poorly I had organised it! LOL but whenever I look back on my photos I can't help going, 'I didn't do too bad. At least I look good in these photos!'.
