Outfit #18 - Maid of Honor again

I've said that many times already, right? It's the year of the weddings. My friend married in a castle in my parents' city. It was a nice day, not too warm, almost a little chilly but well, it was fine. The sun was out as well. My friend looked gorgeous. Unfortunately, I can't show you the bride because she wouldn't appreciate it at all... She wore a short white wedding gown with a bell-shaped lower part. The hair was done by a hair dresser and the makeup by Douglas.

All I can show you is my outfit. I wore the Max Mara dress from the Metzingen outlet haul << click >>, Buffalo pumps. My clutch was from Bijoux Brigitte, a present from a friend. The bracelets are from H&M, the necklace from a Chinese perl factory in Beijing and the earrings are made of Larimar from the Dominican Republic.

I made a simple French braid staring from my left temple down to the right ear, then twisting everything to a little bun and fixing everything with hairspray and bobby pins.

Here's also my makeup. Since I've stayed in the same color family through all weddings, it's almost the same makeup as in Switzerland.

Here are my products:

  1. Maybelline Matti-Teint foundation in Natural Beige
  2. Maybelline Coverstick #24 green corrects redness
  3. Maybelline pure.cover mineral concealer #01 nude beige
  4. Astor Anti Shine Mattitude #005 powder
  5. Essence Ballerina Backstage LE - Eye Soufflé #01 dance the swan lake - as a base all over the lid and under the brow bow.
  6. Maybelline Color Tattoo #40 Permanent Taupe (#35 Tough as Taupe in the US) in the outer corner of the eyes to deepen the area.
  7. Maybelline Color Tattos #20 Turqoise Forever (#40 Tenacious Teal in the US) on the whole lid, as well as an eyeliner on the lower lash line, also on the lower water line.
  8. P2 eye dream #030 (Morning Blues) to set the Turqoise eye liner and blend the eye shadow.
  9. Catrice gel eyeliner #020 (It's Mambo Nr.2) in dark brown as an eyeliner on my upper lash line.
  10. Rival de Loop eye brow pencil in dark brown.
  11. P2 Sunshine Powder #030 Bali Heat as a bronzer.
  12. ELF Blush #90421 Berry Merry
  13. Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick #235 Warm Me Up
  14. Maybelline False Lash Effect Volume Express - black waterproof
EDIT: I almost forgot my beloved new mascara, the Maybelline False Lash Effect Volume Express in black waterproof . The head is very flexible and its brush looks like eye lashes but it works wonders!
