I’m sorry that I’ve been a bit quiet on here this past week! I don’t actually have internet connection at home so I do most of my blogging at my boyfriend’s house. But he has been in Europe for the past month so I’ve had to use my iPhone as internet for that time and now I’ve run out of data on my phone…meaning I can’t use it for the next couple weeks! Boo 🙁 So I’m currently typing this post at McDonalds, taking full advantage of their free Wi-Fi 😛
I am finally posting the photos from my Steampunk shoot up at the Pinnacles!! Belinda’s husband Brendon (otherwise known as chauffeur and pack horse ;)) came along on our road trip, so while he drove Belinda and I amused ourselves by filming the endless scrub and pretty much talking non-stop hehe. I’ve never actually been to the Pinnacles so I was pretty excited to do this photo shoot up there. Hehe to be honest I actually wasn’t even sure WHERE the Pinnacles were located so when Belinda suggested we do a shoot up there I said “yeah that sounds awesome!” then went home and googled what they were and where they are located 😛 hahaha. I have heard of them just wasn’t too sure what they looked like ha. Anyway, now I know that they are a bunch of rocks growing up out of the ground in pointy and sometimes amusing shapes ha ha.
Many thanks to the lovely Zoe from The Powder Room for loaning me these gorgeous corsets and skirts!! My dream of wearing a corset finally came true 😀 Do check out The Powder Room, Zoe sells the most divine clothing and some of the shoes are to die for 😛 Lucky for me I don’t have a huge amount of money otherwise I would be spending up big hehe.
How divine is this corset?! Despite the fact that I could NOT breathe whilst wearing it, I fell madly in love with it and did not want to give it back.
I wasn’t too sure how to do my makeup for SteamPunk. In the end I went with dark bronze eyes and a really dark redish purple lipstick and mixed black eyeliner around the edges for a gothic look. In the photos though my lips just look red ha ha.
Now, because I’ve been very naughty and neglected to do this post straight away I am now having trouble remembering what makeup I used 🙁 I shall try my best to list everything!
Arbonne Face Primer.
Arbonne Liquid foundation – Soft Blush.
Barry M Matte Bronzer
I can’t remember what blush I used, sorry!
MAC Paint Pot – Painterly: Base
Makeup Geek – glamorous: Lid
Makeup Geek – Bada Bing: Crease and outer corner and lower lash line.
Makeup Geek – Vanilla Bean: To blend out Bada Bing.
Makeup Geek – Shimma Shimma: Highlight for Inner Corners of my eyes.
Bobbi Brown Gel Liner – Black Ink: Upper lash line and water line.
Morgan Annie Mascara – Black.
Black eyeliner pencil to line my lips on the outer corners, this is to create that gothic dark lipstick look.
Nvey Organic Lipstick – No. 354…a dark purple with a red tinge.
This was a really fun shoot because we got to go on a road trip!! I tried out my video camera during the day so I will have a go at editing the footage and putting together a little video…no promises though…we did waffle a lot 😛
And so concludes another post 🙂
Please bear with me for the next week as my posts may be on the light side until my boy returns from his travels (this coming Wednesday!!! :D)
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
