GRWM Hockey End of Season Dinner Dance

Hey Sweeties,

This time last year was my end of season dinner with Yateley Hockey Club (revisit that post here), and one year on (last Saturday night) it’s the same event, just a different club. It’s also a celebration of 90 years of Windsor Hockey. For a bit of fun, I thought I would try a get ready with me (GRWM) kind of post. I’ll tell you now, these work much better on film but while I may never get that kind of confidence or expertise, photographs and words it is. So here goes!

No Makeup

The beginning: Hair washed, face bare.

Skincare prep

Skincare prep: Moisturiser, serum and primer

Evening makeup

I always have a tendency to over complicate my makeup when I am going out, so today I wanted to keep it really light and simple. It’s also been gorgeously hot & sunny lately!

For the most part, the order in which I apply products doesn’t change to the way I do my everyday makeup (here), only the products I use. Here, I am using a slightly heavier foundation (Mac’s Studio Sculpt), and rather than a separate blusher and bronzer, I am using Too Faced’s Pink Leopard Blushing Bronzer (review here) to achieve that all over colour & very light contour. I have also swapped my Naked Palettes for a single pan of Mac’s Frost, which is a rosey bronze colour. I also wanted to try out my new Rimmel Scandal Eyes eyeshadow crayon, which I took into the crease and corners and blended out for a more shimmery effect.

Rimmel Scandal Eyes crayon

Early 1st impressions of the Rimmel Scandal Eyes crayon is good; very creamy & blendable!

I then finished off my eyes, eyebrows and face in the usual way.

Since getting my hair quite severely chopped (here), I can’t tell you how easy it is now and I am so much more inclined to keep it down and actually, do a bit more with it. I wash and prep it in the same way as I always do (see my haircare routine here), but as it’s a posher occasion I decided I would give it a bit of extra volume and shape by adding some curls.

Lee Stafford Curling Wand

I rarely like a whole head of full curls & the curling wand by Lee Stafford is great for giving you that choice over your look, type & size of curls.

…And I am done!

I completed the look with Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick, Happy Nude Year.

I hope you enjoyed this post!
