MY BAFTA WEEKEND
Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend the BAFTA’s with Lancôme and I felt like a princess the entire time! It’s not often that I get to glam up and spend hours getting ready, which is why it was so fun for me! BAFTA weekend consists of lots of activities leading up to a pre-party on Saturday night at Kensington Palace (no biggie) and then the actual BAFTA ceremony is on Sunday evening. Make sure you watch the video at the bottom of this post if you’d like to see exactly what I got up to!
Here’s what I wore to the pre-party…lots and lots of sequins! I wanted to wear something fun and a little more interesting than my usual outfits (jeans and t-shirts everyday). I absolutely love sequins and to be completely covered in them was so much fun. I got so many compliments on this outfit and I felt fantastic!
I also amped up my makeup with a dark smokey eye and loads of loads of mascara! I was in complete awe when the makeup artist used the Lancôme Grandiôse Extreme Mascara on me. It was genuinely better than false lashes…if you like big lashes you need this in your life! I also decided to rock a bold red lip because I wanted to try out the new ~matte~ Juicy Shakers which will be launching next month! I was so impressed by how long lasting it was. Even after an evening of talking, laughing and having dinner it stayed put! More on those later though…
Also, how stunning is that wall of roses?
For the red carpet evening I decided to wear a red floor length gown. I was slightly panicked because the day before this event I still hadn’t figured out what to wear but luckily my ASOS order came through! As soon as I put it on I felt comfortable and confident in it. I was also really lucky that the length was perfect because I’m quite short and long dresses usually drag on the floor. I wore my favourite black heels and the black Chloe Drew bag, which held my camera, makeup and anything else I thought I’d need. I’m not a huge fan of clutch bags so I thought this would be perfect to use for more glam events like this one, but I can also use it in my regular life.
I decided to go quite natural on the makeup with the Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation, which is matte but also has a glow to it to create a flawless base. A bit of bronzer, eyebrows and loads of mascara and that was pretty much it! Oh and I also wore the Lancôme Shine Lover Lipstick in the shade 218! Such a classic shade.
Huge thank you to my Lancôme family for bringing me along and allowing me to have such a fantastic experience. It was truly unforgettable!
