Pageant Designs Green Glam Look

39 comments:
 
I was recently contacted by PAGEANT DESIGNS who had some very kind things to say about my blog and wanted to explore the idea of a possible collaboration/partnership. They actually went ahead and posted a really sweet article about me on their blog (which you can read here) so in return I offered to do a makeup look inspired by one of the dresses on their site.

I had a hard time choosing a dress to be inspired by. With all the color and glitter at my disposal I was overwhelmed by inspiration, but I eventually settled on this stunning green number which is just dripping with beaded, glittery embellishments. Feast your eyes on this and try to not picture yourself whirling around in it!


Ugh! Can you imagine!? Anyways, so this was the design that I settled on and here are TWO, yes ... TWO looks that I came up with that were inspired by this dazzling dress. Check them out.





The dress so nice, I did a look twice. I'd be really curious to see which of these two you guys like better so I'm going to reserve my own personal opinion for now. Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances (re: chores & real life) I had to wash off my second look before I finished so there are no full face pictures, but I do have a full face shot of the first look to show y'all.



Man, I really wish you guys could have seen how dazzling and sparkly both these looks were in real life. (Anyone have any tips for capturing true sparkle on film - other than buying a better camera!) I felt like a total diva wearing these uber-glam looks, like a true pageant doll. I want to thank Pageant Designs for their desire to work with me and I urge you guys to have a look at the site. There's lots and lots, and LOTS of pretty dresses to drool over and even more inspiration for you makeup junkies like myself.

Thanks for checking it out and I really look forward to what you guys have to say about these looks and which one you prefer.

  15. This is fantastic inspiration! I really like both looks but if I had to choose I would go for the second look. If you got a decent camera you should be able to decide where to put the focus on, should be tuning in under Manuel and get better pictures. Is this a look you would wear out? I know I would for sure... Thanks for a great post

  16. Seriously I love your looks, I personally like the second look better... I think you should move closer so you can teach me how to apply make up better... You are amazing...

  33. Your blending and colors are GORGEOUS. Both of them suit the dress so well, but I love the wispy feel of the second one.

  34. I have no idea why no one has commented on this before, both of these looks are gorgeous. I prefer the second one, though. It reminds me more of the flow of the dress; all the rhinestones in the first look seem a little clunky, though that could just be the proximity of the camera to your face and it looks different from further away.
