Op Shop Costume Ball and Updates

Hi guys!

I hope you are getting back into the groove of things after a nice Easter long weekend :) I went for a little road trip down south of Western Australia over Easter, to a beautiful coastal town called Esperance. Because Esperance is so far away (900+km from Perth), we also stopped over at the not-so-nearby Albany (four hours drive away!) for a day so that our drive back up will not be too torturous. It still took us about 5 hours of nonstop driving over 400+km to get back to Perth, but the entire trip was so worth it! <3

Anyhoo, getting back to work on yesterday was so difficult – I think my brain only came back from Esperance today. I did post up some photos of the trip so if you’re interested to have a look you can hop over to my Instagram @hunnybunnysoph :)

So a couple of weeks back I went to an Op Shop Costume Ball, and I thought it would be something interesting to share! Basically because this is a charity ball, attendees are encouraged to pick out an outfit from the op shops and wear them to the ball. You could go in a crazy outfit or pick out pieces of clothing and do a mix-and-match (or mismatch) as long as they’re from the op shop.

Guess what I went as?

To be honest I didn’t know what this costume was, it just looked like something from a Disney movie so I thought it would be a really fun to wear this. I did get quite a few comments saying I looked like a Disney princess, not bad for $12! :D

If you guys remember my review of the CLIO Gelpresso Waterproof Shadow here, I shared an eye make up look featuring the two products. That was actually taken half-way through my make up for this ball, so now I’m sharing the full make up look.

For the steps to the eye makeup, here it is! I used my Urban Decay Primer Potion on my eyelids before putting on the eyeshadows.

As you already know, the next step was applying the CLIO Gelpresso Waterproof Shadow in Beer Pong on my lower lash line. I finished the eye make up with my KATE Volume Gel Mascara on my eyelashes.

I tried to take another selfie for a close up of my make up. Pardon the terrible lighting!

All ready for the ball!

For my cheeks, I used my 3CE Face Blush in Love Filter to achieve a natural flushed look. For my lips, I used the Sephora Collection Rouge Cream Lipstick in Valentine 09. I won’t go in depth about this lipstick as I will be doing a review of it soon. All I can say is that I’m loving it heaps!

I’m not very creative when it comes to hairdos, so I did a french braid and pinned up the flyaway hair with some bobby pins. I pretty much braid my hair every time I need to get dressed up for some reason, I’m terrible with curling and making pretty upstyle dos :(

So that’s it for my Op Shop Ball make up and outfit share. I’m hoping to do more MOTD posts after settling into my new place (I’m moving house next weekend :O) but until then, I should be posting up a couple of reviews, favourites and maaaaybe a haul? Lol I really need some help for this shopping problem of mine ><

Tell me, do you guys go op shopping much?
