An Engagement Party

A couple of weeks ago I went to my auntie's engagement party in Leeds :) it was a really nice evening & a good chance for some of the family to get together!

I was busy during the day & didn't have time to re-do my makeup so I had to do a re-vamp of my daytime makeup to make it appropriate for a party!

Here's my day to night makeup look :)

In the day, I tend to keep it quite natural with a small amount of liner & mascara 

Excuse the eyebrows - it'd been a long day & they aren't looking the best!

I started off by applying 'half baked' from the Urban Decay Naked Palette.

I then added some definition to my crease & started to create the flick outline using a gorgeous glittery plum colour from a MAC palette I got as an Easter present.

I continued to build it up until I was happy with it!

Crazy flicks before I blended them out :)

I then added my MAC liquid eyeliner which is in my current favourites at the minute! I sorted my eyebrows out, added some more mascara & bronzer et voila...

The finished look :)

We then drove up to Leeds & quickly got changed into our outfits before setting off for the party. 
(Apologies for the lighting in the hotel!)

Dress - Miss Selfridge
Necklace - Accessorize

On our way home on the Sunday we stopped off for a Sunday lunch in a restaurant called 'The Cadeby Inn' It was really lovely & such a beautiful place!

We were sat in "The Conservatory" which was a beautiful open room with only 4 tables but lots of windows!

I loved this lamp shade & the wine displayed

Of course I had my favourite drink, cranberry & disaronno 

For starter I had a prawn & smoked salmon cocktail which was delicious. It was so light & fresh & came with a piece of warm tasty bread :)

I found this beautiful picture in the ladies toilets & just felt the need to take a photo of it :)

For my main course, I went with the pork loin & apple mash which was sooo tasty! 

If you have the chance to go for a Sunday lunch I would definitely recommend as it's pretty good value for money & is also really tasty :) The garden at the front also looked perfect for relaxing on a sunny day.
