I've been practicing a subtle eye make up and bright red lipstick (Port Red by MAC) for my friend's wedding in June since I'm wanting to wear my little black dress, Gucci shoes and Vivienne Westwood evening bag. Since my highlights are due for top up in June (I fancy more colour this time... lighter than what I've already got), I've decided to have it done and put it up on French twist... I've no idea what to do, if I'm being honest. So, if you've got anything in mind... I'd love to hear from you.

In this photo, I wore the following (I'll edit this post for specification soon):

Elizabeth Arden Primer

MAC concealer

Almost Powder in Neutral by Clinique

Silky Eye Shadow Quad in Earth and Sky by Shiseido

Sheer Cover Cream Eyeliner in black

Virtouse Mascara in black by Lancome (Top eye lashes)

Clinique Mascara (Bottom eye lashes)
Yves Saint Laurent blusher on cheek

Port Red Lipstick by MAC

Yay! Looks messy!

After I've done my make up, I felt miserable with the thought of staying in when it was warm and sunny outside so I asked my boyfriend if he didn't mind us eating out. We ended up in YO! Sushi Japanese restaurant and I couldn't help myself on the conveyor belt where various plates of food constantly ran passed us whilst we ate. I ended up helping myself on 3 portions of sushis off the belt and noddles from the menu. I could only manage about 3 refills of green tea through out the meal ha ha ha! Believe me! I felt extremely full after the meal!

My first portion of sushi... Absolutely gorgeous! I got into eating that I forgot to take photo of my second portion ha ha ha!

Chicken Yakisoba! Yummmm!

My third portion after my main (Couldn't help it!) Crunchy prawn and avocado ISO!

After that lovely meal we nipped in Space.NK Apothecary shop and ended up shopping for make up! Could've have been my dessert ha ha ha! At least, theses babies won't make me gain weight ha ha ha!

NARS make up, Laura Mercier Lip Glace and Stila Lip Glaze. They had very small choices on Stila make up because they're currently repackaging and will be launching new range (as I was told).

My purchases plus samples

My free samples! Yep! They were quite generous!

The shop assistant gave me this samples for my boyfriend as well (Body, facial and eye creams). I'm still trying to convince him into using them. I've even taught him how to apply them but he doesn't seem to be interested :(

I love the packaging. Simple yet elegant

My new NARS make up :)
