Make Up Mash Up

I went to Chadstone with Bailey to meet up with Netty and Emily. It was Netty's birthday the next day and she wanted to get her make up done so I thought I'd buy it for her as her present.

She wanted me to get it done with her so I don't know how I got convinced but I did. I dressed like a boy that day, like a total scum. The make up artist treated me like I had never worn make up before. I asked for light, light make up. She promised me that she'd keep things natural.

Next thing I knew she was asking to put lashes on me and I was like "WOAH WOAH WOAH!" but she said that she promises they are the most natural lashes. She started caking on foundation and I was like, "What is that?" and she's like "Oh foundation. Why what's wrong?"

I said it was a little much and she's like well you're in for it now! HAHAHAHAHA in the end the make up wasn't very light and I think she meant natural as in neutral tones (like browns).

I went to the toilet straight away and wiped off a bit until my friends stopped me. I felt like a cake just got bazooka'd onto my face. Straight after I went and ate lunch and just ruined my face make up by shoving McDonalds into it.

We went back to Netty's and just lounged about in her Snoop Dog pimp bed (im talking leopard pillow cases, cushions, doona and even leopard sheets!) Annette and Emily got ready and Bailey and I gave approval.

We then drove back to Baileys so he could scrub up from his usual scumbag form and then headed on our merry way!

My work was holding a one of even at Crown Casino where they opened up the whole floor of clubs. I took the night off so i could party it up for Annette's birthday and give myself a breather. The night was boring, and continued to be until 1 bourbon & coke, 2 Alize & lemonades, 3 tequilas, floor.

I danced like a dorky version of Tina Turner for a few hours and then it was time to go home. I had a big day planned tomorrow.

Then tomorrow became today and I cant be bothered to do two separate posts so I'm going to cram it all into one. I woke up. Yes. Kevin, AJ and Bailey all came out for lunch. We went to check out this corporate canteen called Earls Canteen. The place is renowned for gourmet baguettes for people on the run. Kevin and I enjoyed a crispy pork belly on a bed of fennel, lettuce and I don't remember what else but it was really foodgasmic.

Kevin and I indulged in earl grey, rose, pistachio and black sesame macaroons which were gorgeous! We all know I'm a macaroon fiend so I gotta say these ones rated high on the scale! Texture was great.

Then I popped over to the luxurious Silk Road bar on Collins St to meet with my friend and a make up artist to help him with his portfolio. The shoot was alright actually, I was expecting it to be worse and a lot more cliche. And it wasn't too strenuous and uncomfortable either. The venue is gorgeous, reminds me of Gossip Girl.

That's two days in a row of caked make up and I felt gross. I felt like a baby skank. And my hair looked like I just walked off the set of That 70's Show.

Chris picked me up and we went for some BEAUTIFUL Wagyu steak. I was creaming in my seat as I ate through the salt crusted edges and delved into the melting meat inside. We enjoyed bruschetta for entree and creme brulee, warm dark chocolate & pistachio fondant. YUM!
