Diesel Fuel For Life Launching + 1920's inspired look

It was a gloomy tuesday, you think nothing would happen except load of paperworks. But something did. I was lucky enough to get an invite to Diesel's Fuel for Life Unlimited: For Women Only Launching Party at Threesixty Lounge, A. Venue.

The Theme was inspired by Diesel's Fuel for Life France for Women, Roaring 2o's. People were dressed to the nines of 1920's costumes of frills, boa feathers, pearls, ribbons, corsets, fringes and all that jazz. Good-looking men roamed in fedora hats, ties, and garters while they offer to spritz your wrist with Fuel for life. Drinks were flowing much like in a Speak Easy club. The band playing was just fabulous that it felt like I was in a set of Chicago. People were unwinding as the night progressed. The highlight would be the pole dancers who did not only entertain the gentlemen present but even us women. Such a beautiful night to spend with friends.

As always, I try to take this chance to dress up for the event. I had my long hair curled to shorten it in order to make it in a 1920's style. I had to set it with a lot of hairspray since my rebonded hair usually goes back to straight form a few hours after it gets curled.

I was inspired to use my MAC Holiday Palette in Fascinating Ruby, concentrating on the colors Scant, Satin Taupe and Devotion to create that smokey brown look (since I will be wearing a brown high skirt dress) so popular in the 20's. I applied XLH false lashes from the The Face Shop to lift my eyes. Then liberally applied MAC Blacktrack Fluidline to deepen the smokey look.

As for the face, I stippled (using Enkore's technique) using MAC 187 with MUFE HD Foundation 012 to try achieved the pixelized look. Applied my trust worthy concealers from MAC StudioFix Concelaer. Then set it with MAC MSF in Medium Plus. To reduced the washout look, I swooped MAC MSF Redhead LE onto my cheeks. And used the lighter part of MSF Redhead LE to highlight the upper part of my cheeks. I also contoured my cheeks and nose with MAC MSF in Medium Dark to achieve that 1920's sleek look. For the lips, I wanted a burst of color and used Raspberry from Silk Naturals (not offered anymore) and topped in with NYX Lipgloss in Orchid.

It was such a fun night, I was able to meet the fabulous team behind this event as well form new friendship with some of its guest. Mostly, I just enjoyed spending time with my friend J of Mizzmakeup and R of Vanityvibes.

I christened this table the Beauty Blogger's Boudoir: (R's mom, Tita M), R, me and J.
