Faux Hawk, OOTD, FOTD & NOTD!!

Warning: This post is picture heavy :D xXx

So Wednesday 24th March 2010 was the day the single honours 3rd year BA(Hons) Dance Studies students had to hand in our dissertations by. Man, what a weight lifted off my shoulders! I actually managed to get mine in on Monday, so I had time to relax. We had all decided we would be going out to the university event at a club in a local town :)

I settled on an outfit of purple sequinned hotpants with a plain black tank and a cute black sparkly bow belt! I got quite a few compliments from my friends which is always lovely to hear! Never forget to tell your friends they look gorgeous :D They will often return the favour and it's a great start to the day/night!!

I wore the belt the "wrong" way round so the bow was at the back! The studs at the front totally added to the rock look :) Also I wore my Swarovski moon and star DSK silver necklace which hung just below my collar bone. Finished off the outfit with black Mary-Janes which have a wooden look heel. (Urgh, my legs look white! Its because there was something white in the corner which made the flash glare against the lens and I didn't notice until this morning!!)
Earlier on Wednesday, I knew my hair needed washing but I didn't want to spend time washing it just to get drink spilled on it or rained on etc. I searched "quick up do" in YouTube, and I found various tutorials that could've worked, but to go with the rock chick outfit, I decided on a faux hawk hair do! I thought it was awesome and would go great with my outfit.

I wasn't sure if my hair was too long for this look, but I think it turned out great! I will be doing a video tutorial on this soon :D
It took a lot of hairspray, hair grips and a little bit of teasing too but it was well worth it!

After fixing my hair, I knew I had to do some colourful, sparkly eye make-up to complete my look and add some life! (Not that the purple sparkles didn't do that already :P)
I did a combo of purple smokey eyes with green liner on the bottom and some false lashes (which I'm not wearing in these close-up photos because I took them before I remembered to put on my false lashes!)
To achieve this look, I used:
~ Maybelline Eyecolor Express in 02 Vintage Rose
~ MAC Shadestick in Sharkskin
~ Barry M Dazzle Dust in LED 2 (910)
~ Barry M Fine Glitter Dust in 18 Purple (835)
~ Barry M Kohl Pencil in 1 Black
~ Barry M Intense Eyeliner Pen in 2 Aqua Green
~ Collection 2000 Glam Crystals Dazzling Gel Liner in 12 Spandex (Green)
~ Collection 2000 Glam Crystals Dazzling Gel Liner in 15 Dig It! (Black and Gold)
~ Eyeko Mascara
~ Eylure Girls Aloud False Lashes in Kimberly
~ Max Factor Lash Extension Effect
~ E.L.F. Studio Eyebrow Kit in Dark

I kept the cheeks a nice mineralized pink that would give off a subtle flush but nothing too sparkly that would come off as shine in photographs.

I used a coral lipstick (~ Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in 420 Coral Pop) with a coral gloss (The Body Shop Love Gloss Lipgloss in 18 Tropical Pink) which I think really completed the look and I'm very happy with how everything turned out :D
This is my rock chick face!!!!
Products used on mah face:
~ Make Up For Ever HD Foundation in #120 Soft Sand
~ Naked Cosmestics Mineral Powder Foundation in MPF-04
~MAC Mineralize Blush in Daft Pink
~Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Refined
~Barry M Natural Dazzle Bronzing Powder
~E.L.F. Studio High Definition Powder

I took a few more pics toward the end of my night out of my hair just to see how well it was holding up, and to my surprise, it looked almost exactly the same!!
I remember having to replace a few grips though! And I had it sprayed so much with hairspray that there shouldn't have been any way for my hair to fall out, but because its so long and heavy I thought it may have pulled out the grips when I was dancing!
Perfectly in tact!!

All in all, it was a fab-dab-ulous night that was just amaze-balls (this is my new favourite word!). And here I am showing off my nails which leads me right into the next part of my post!
I don't know what it is about blue polish, but it just looks so cute!! I think I'm growing into blues more now than purples :O It might become the new favourite colour! I realised this just as I was typing looking at my nails and seeing that I'm wearing a blue shirt ready for dreamland!
(I don't know what that weird bit on my thumb is!) So I used two of my new OPI polishes and I'm so very happy with them, like I have been with all my OPI purchases :D
The matte (not matte in finish, but matte as in without shimmer) blue is called Suzi Says Feng Shui from the Hong Kong Collection and the blue sparkles are from the Alice in Wonderland Collection named Absolutely Alice.

Of course, it's topped off with a nice healthy coat of 17's Double Gloss Top Coat from their Nail Xtras range! This makes my nails shine as though covered in lip gloss and smooth to touch!!

If you want to check out my other OPI polishes, I filmed my collection today!

Do you think I rocked the look??

Love love and bluelove!!
