I was asked to attend the Vogue Festival UK event on Sunday 22/05/2016.
As it was one the biggest fashion and beauty events of this year I prepared my outfit in advance and established that I wanted to add a bit of glamour to my usual red-carpet make-up look.
I applied my Laura Mercier make-up base followed by my favorite Dior foundation (Diorskin Forever) and some loose powder. I defined my cheekbones by some bronzing highlighter from Guerlain.
I prepared a smoky-eyes look using my PUPA Cosmetics palette. A few days before the event I was thinking about my eye-make up and I was certain that I wanted to add some extra volume to my eyelashes and was thinking what the best solution would be. I came up with 2 options:
Short-term solution -FAKE Eyelashes
I wanted to try some fake eye-lashes that will add some extra volume and definition to my eyes. I chose the ‘Glamourise’ eyelashes by Invogue for an intense effect and thick, fuller voluptuous lashes. They were perfect for creating must-have full look for eyes.From what I read on the package: ‘eyelashes by Invogue are hand made, hand tied, quality lashes.’ They were easy to apply and easy to remove. Perfect for a big event like the Vogue Festival. the box contained one pair of lashes, along with lash adhesive and care instructions. If you’ve not tried lashes from the Invogue range yet, now’s the time to do so.
You can see with and without pictures listed below:
Long-term solution was to buy an eyelash serum that would help me to achieve a dream of flirty, long and thick lashes before my wedding in August. I ordered the Invogue Eyelash and brows serum with fibre lashes on my friend’s recommendation.Not only does the product work as a daily serum that strengthens and stimulates growth, it also contains fibres which create instant impact, giving the appearance of fuller, longer and healthier lashes and brows.
You can purchase both of these products from:
As I went for the smoky-eyes look and I didn’t want to look like a drag queen I only applied some Clarins Lip oil to finish this look.
I wanted to wear something from a well-established British brand for this occasion thus I prepared my simple Burberry dress and paired it up with Burberry trench coat as it was quite a cold morning. I complimented the outfit with a pair of black Manolo Blahnik flats that added an ooze of glamour and elegance to my ensemble.
I was ready to leave house around 10 a.m. to start my adventure at the Vogue Festival. I will post my festival review in a few days time!

Such a cute look! I love the bow detail on the Burberry top.
