FOTN: Cultural gatherings

My family is Bengali, as some of you may know, but it's not very often that I get to dress up in traditional clothing. The Bengali community had a gathering over the weekend and I wore a sari, of course it goes without saying that I had some fun with my makeup too...


Sleek Vintage Romance palette
MAC Lipstick in 'Rebel'
Elf blush in 'Berry Merry'
Ardell Demi Wispies
Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation
Mary Lou Manizer

I've used a few barely used products here. The Sleek Vintage Romance palette and MAC lipstick are ones I hardly reach for, not because I don't like them, but because I don't find them suited to everyday use for me. I love the lipstick, its such a beautiful colour and it lasted all night, through eating and drinking. The palette is also lovely, I've used the 2nd shade as the main lid colour and a mixture of the purple and black to deepen the crease/outer corner. Now as for the Ardell demi wispies, these are definitely my favourite falsies that I've ever tried! Application is easier than with others (in my opinion) and they feel light and natural to wear. 



Me and a friend rocking our sari's!

I included a full body shot so you can see my sari :)

Thanks for reading! xx
