March 31st I attended a fashion show in Hamilton, Ontario. It was organized by Style at Mac, which is a club at McMaster University, for which I am a trend blogger. This show is an annual event showcasing fashion from across the city. This year it was held at the Cotton Factory, which continues to be a historic complex in the city. The Cotton Factory was formerly a cotton mill in the early twentieth century and now is the center for creativity. It’s historic and authentic atmosphere makes for one impeccable venue. The fashion show showcased designers such as: “White Elephant”, “Josette Cacino” and “Mendocino”. I decided to escape my norm of wearing all black all the time and went with a light grey bodycon dress. I KNOW, WHAT A DIFFERENCE. FROM BLACK TO GREY :O Spring is here and I’ve got to open myself up to a bit more colour! Nothing crazy of course, but grey is a great start.
For makeup, I went all out! If you know me you know I do not apply foundation often but I pulled out my fave, NARS Sheer Glow in Syracuse. It started with foundation and ended with highlighter by Becca in Champagne Pop and everything in between. I am talking contour, eyeshadow, THE WHOLE SHABANG 😛 The only thing I was missing were my false eyelashes. But they decided not to work with me so well, so I tossed them aside. For the lips, I went BOLD with Kat Von D’s Everlasting LipStick in Echo. This Lipstain does not budge but can be drying. So I suggest using Mac’s lip primer prior to applying the stain. Not too many pictures were taken that night, unfortunately, but this is what I did manage to take. Hope you enjoy:
I paired the dress with my black platform booties from Forever 21. I showcased my boots in one of my previous blog posts titled “Something Different”.
