From Frumpy to Rock Chic

I’m going out tonight and have had a long week at work.  My haircut and manicure happened to be organised for the same day, (today)!  So I have a great excuse for a mini makeover.  So here we go with the pictures,

Okay, so I’m looking slightly hungover here.  I did drink a bit last night I will admit.  I’m thinking that I’m going to need a miracle if I can pull this off!

And look, I broke a nail, just perfect!  I had my nails all long and was thinking of some amazing styles…….

 

 

I thought I would give myself a tan, so I got  some dove gradual tan.  I like this stuff because it doesn’t smell strong and will give a natural looking tan.

I use the darker color even though I am very pale.  It tans up faster so you need less.

Be sure to use disposable gloves when you apply it as it can discolor nail polish, it’s also not the easiest to wash off your hands.

One trick I also learnt is to apply it straight after a shower and then once it’s all soaked into your skin, wipe yourself down with a towel.  This prevents you staining your clothes.  This fake tan does come out in the wash though, so no drama if you get it on your clothes.

So here are my new nails!  I had them all shortened, they were getting a bit long anyway.    My short nail doesn’t stand out so much, I’ve gone a dark blue, almost black, very rock chic, so far, so good!

 

Here’s the hair, lovin it!  All I have to do now is cake on the makeup, put on the outfit  and I’m good to go!  I think I need to look up how to do smokey eyes, I’ll have a go!

 

And here we go!  Black everything, of course. Utube had a video on how to get the smokey eye effect.  I like the ‘don’t mess with me look’.. Looks like I may be behind the bar tonight so the look is puuuuuurfect!
