What I Wore For My 18th Birthday

Hello lovelies! So as some of you may or may not know, it was my 18th birthday last week!:) And I've basically had different celebrations for it throughout the week hahah, from pub family gatherings, to shopping, movie nights and going around town (York). But i'm not going to talk about all that, I'm just going to show you the outfit that I wore for the night out!

 
My dress needed pulling down a little here - the downside of any bodycon dress! This beautiful dress however, was so lovely fitting, and the cut out detail on the sleeves and chest area gave it a sexy feel - without being too revealing which was a really nice touch. After WEEKS of searching for the perfect dress, I found this beauty from 'Mango' for a reasonable £35. 

My outfit also featured a 'Guess' watch which I got for Christmas  which I THINK is about £80-90? A cross pendant necklace from New Look which was £3.99 PLUS it was on buy one get one free, so I bagged some black/gold drop earrings to wear as well (which you can't really see!) Lastly, I wore some black cut-out wedges from New Look which cost around £15, however by the end of the night my feet were so painful that I had to get the Taxi back bare-footed (classy, I know haha!) 


 

 For my hair, I used 'Enrapture' heat rollers which are absolutely amazing. You can't go wrong with them, your hair will come out literally almost perfect every time  even if you're a beginner at curling hair. Enrapture Heat rollers do cost around £75 last time I checked, but I actually bought them last year for only £40 in the Argos sale which was fab!



For my makeup I opted for a smokey eye look, as to match with the sleek black dress. Here are the products that I used in order:
1. Urban Decay 'Naked Skin' Foundation in the shade 3.0
2. Bare Minerals (Square-Ended) Brush for my brows
3. Urban Decay Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette (used the colours tease, bootycall, snakebite, pistol and more - will do a post on this at some point 
4. Used 'Sex and The City' False Eyelashes in 'Carrie' - they're so good and cheap!
5. It's not really visible in the photos, but I then used Mac lipstick.

 


Thanks for reading xoxo
