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?

Op Shop Ball costume

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.

Naked Palette Eye Make up

From the Naked Palette: Sin, Naked and Buck. Eyeliner: CLIO Waterproof Pen Liner in Kill Black

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!

Finished make up look

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?

My Nominees

1. Confetti and Curves – Karen’s blog is simply amazing – she writes about beauty, fashion and weddings because she used to be in the wedding industry. She has a “Behind the Blog” feature which is wildly successful and great idea helping her readers connect with newer bloggers. Karen has also recently ventured into making her own Youtube videos and although she only has two videos now, she’s incredibly good for a beginner Youtuber!

 2. Julllla – Jenna is a young beauty and fashion blogger who just turned 18 recently. She often shares her favourite clothing brands and fashion styles, as well as her fashion inspirations. She also writes about fashion events and the latest runway trends.

3. Dream and Dazzle – Diana writes about beauty and makeup, from reviews and hauls to make up tutorials. Her blog is quite new but she has a good variety of posts to date, and I’m looking forward to reading more of her posts :)

4. Ryane Zamora Beauty – Ryane Zamora is a relatively new blogger and blogs about beauty, fashion and lifestyle. She also shares interesting posts once in a while, such as gift ideas or home/interior decoration ideas.

5. Best Day Blogger – Maria’s blog covers a wide range of topics from beauty and makeup reviews, to health and fitness and even to recipes! I enjoy reading her make up reviews because she usually reviews products that are less common.

6.  MarieCrz – Marie is also a blogger with many diverse interests – she writes about beauty, health and fashion mainly. She is also immensely talented in art, you have to check out her collection of drawings!

7.  HannahKimberley22 – Hannah writes mostly on beauty and she recently did a 14 day make up favourites challenge on her blog. I learnt so much about which brands are good for which make up items and it was fun reading about her favourites. She also posts beauty advice from time to time and I love that her blog is so easy to read.

I hope that I’ve helped some of you discover other amazing blogs that you can read too! There are so many more beautiful blogs out there, it was difficult to select only 7 nominees. I’m looking forward to discovering new blogs from my nominees’ nominations :)
