Dash of Green OOTD, FOTD...

... and Christmas theme NOTD

(warning - long post and pic heavy) A while ago, my Alma Mater celebrated its 100th anniversary with a centennial banquet.  My parents and I were alumni and invited by a relative, who sponsored our table, etc.  The dress code was 'Lounge suit/Dash of green' because of our school colour.  Peronally I'm not a fan of green and after turning my wardrobe upside down, I decided to go safe and wear black - with a dash of green stockings.

FYI, for non-frequent bloggers, OOTD means outfit of the day, FOTD is face of the day and NOTD - you know it, don't you?

Uniqlo black tank top, ASOS dress, H and M stockings, heels, coat, Korean leopard clutch, crystal necklace, Swarovski crystal bangle.

By the way, my hair was freshly washed, no style no blow-drying whatsoever.  I think I may need to dye it soon - annoying roots; and learn how to glam it up with styling... Any idea is welcome!

 flash does wash out colours, doesn't it?

Hate the shadow of the camera lens; real and fake lash gap exposed!
**ignore the absence of grammatical correctness below please**

After skin care (wash and serum only), Laura Mercier hydrating primer all over.  Clinique supermoisture make up (the best foundation at faking good skin) on full face, and Revlon colorstay (more coverage) on problem areas - around nose and chin and some freckles on top of cheeks.  Bourjois brush concealer under eyes.  Set with Beautymaker loose powder all over - with puff.  With big powder brush apply MAC MSFN medium dark all around face, jaw, hair-line as natural shading.  Contour and highlight cheeks with Sleek contour kit light.  *blusher missed out? - could be natural collection pink cloud* 

Eyes primed with MAC bare study paint pot.  Stila kitten on lid and 'crease' colour in the crease.  Wing eyeliner with Etude House gel eyeliner.  Lashes curled and mascara-ed - Beaute de KoseBeauty World '#985 Glam' lashes applied with Ardell LashGrip (dark glue).  Eyeline gaps filled in with Kiss Me liquid liner.

Lips prepped with Haus of Gloi Sweet Rosa lip balm.  Lavshuca RD1 lipstick.  **later in the night, after eating and drinking I applied Collection 2000 creampuff - sorry no pictures of that on me though.**  Brows filled in with Kate gel eyebrows and then Mio Piccolo brow gel.
