Last Friday night I decided to go with heavy (for me) eyes and neutral lip (so just thought I would plonk a quick post up to share...don't know why really cos I feel like a complete prat...!
Here we have the traditional half face shot (still not up to a full one!) - honestly it's so daunting putting your kite on here - I really hate having my photo taken - so what the hell am I doing? - you feel like you should look flawless and clearly that's never going to happen in my case - I haven't edited anything on these pics so what you see is what you get I'm afraid!

So that was the slap and here's the sequins courtesy of my £10 bargain top from H&M this summer...
For some reason I look like a tortoise in this pic (it's the conk again!) - and much to my amazement there is no damp washing hanging from the radiator in the background - it's usually my hubby's (clean) pants and gym gear so good job...!! Anyway ...didn't wear much jewelry because I don't like too much going on - just chucked on a few bangles before I left (which I'm sure you wanted to know!) and wore the top with my black pvcs and black swede block heel ankle boots (which I hadn't donned for this photo so hope you can't see my socks!) - both from Next, I'm not an everyday 'high-heeler' and these boots feel so high it takes me a while - or a few drinks to balance myself!
What did you wear on Friday night? Are you going for heavy eyes or full-on lips at the moment?
PS - Quick Update - My husband has just informed me that if you do want to see a post with his pants hanging in the background he is happy to oblige!!
