FOTD: Tribute to Dolly Parton

I'm going to a costume party so hence the get-up, haha. You didn't seriously think I dress like this?.. Although you might be forgiven for thinking it :P

Anyway this is in honour of the colourful lady of country music - Ms Dolly Parton. A childhood hero of mine, who has just released a song that kind of applies to me too - Backwoods Barbie :) Anyway, getting back to the matter at hand. This turned out to be an exercise in theatrical makeup. I needed to look super-perfected (normally I'm more of a slap-on-dash-out kinda girl...) Hence, bring on all the primers and the face powder, which I normally don't bother with. Also Dolly always matches her nail polish to her lipstick, so I had to find a near perfect match in my stash to my beloved Superstay Powergloss!

Maybelline Superstay Silky Foundation "Cameo"
L'Oreal True Match Compact Powder "Rose Beige"
MAC Blushcreme "Sweet William"

Bobbi Brown Corrector "Bisque"
Bobbi Brown Concealer Kit "Beige"
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow/Liner "RSVP"
Barry M Supersoft Eye Crayon "Blue"
Fyrinnae Eyeshadow "Digital Faerie"
Chanel Inimitable Mascara "Noir"

Maybelline Superstay PowerGloss "Radiant Ruby"

Wet n' Wild Rock Solid Nail Lacquer "Rockin' Rubies"

It was a great night out! But thank goodness for Clinique's makeup remover Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm! It took 2 washes before I could go to bed, haha!
