Get Ready With Me #4 Indian Wedding Reception Dinner (Pink Saree Bollywood Swag)

What's up, ya'll?

Hope everyone is fine and well. Too bad i'm not fine. I got into another car accident last Friday, a day before my cousin brother's wedding reception dinner. I was already having a bad day that Friday and to make things worse, i accidentally rear ended a taxi. And the taxi's bumper actually broke and the lights too. My car was also dented badly in the front as my right headlight cracked and the alarm system is majorly screwed up. The accident was my fault (this time, i admit it) due to my carelessness. So yeah. Gotta be more careful from now onwards. My car (Cleo) is in the Hyundai Service Center so i have to walk to work now. Thank god, my workplace is super near my house! It's only a 15 mins walk from my house. But hopefully my car gets repaired asap. I hate walking. I'm lazy that way. LOL.

Anyways, on the bright side, my cousin brother's wedding reception went well. The place they chose was just amazeballs! I was surprised to see all the nice decor and lights and red carpets! The place is very near Assunta Hospital but i forgot the exact name of the place. I decided to wear my pink and purple net dinner saree. The saree is definitely on the grander side as compared to the blue saree that i wore on the wedding day. Just like the blue saree, i bought this pink dinner saree from Gayathri Store in Johor Bahru as well. My necklace set and bangles is from Raani's Store in JB again. This is how i look like in that saree. Yay or Nay, people?

These are close up pictures of my costume jewelry. This is the necklace. To be honest, the necklace was very uncomfortable to wear. It's thick and just not comfortable. And the earrings are pretty heavy. But then again, no pain, no gain, girl! 

As for my makeup, it is similar to my "Bachelorette Party" except this time is added false lashes and 2 different coats of my 2 new mascaras. This is officially the second time that I've actually worn fake lashes. And i can safely say that fake lashes aren't my thing. For one thing, putting it on is so tedious and difficult. The glue just gets everywhere. But it did look kinda nice in pictures. My lashes are visible in the pictures. That's the only pro. Haha. I'll probably do another post on my new Red Cherry lashes. on the other hand, i'm really lovin' my 2 new mascaras. It's both of Lo'real Paris. It's the Voluminous and the Telescopic mascara. I personally like to use them both because the Voluminous makes your lashes appear thicker while the Telescopic makes your lashes longer.

I also used 2 lipsticks for this look. I wanted a fuchsia pink lips so obviously i had to use my all-time fave pink lipstick MAC Flat Out Fabulous. But then as most MAC lipstick lovers will know that the retro matte finish is super drying. I didn't want to have dry lips during the dinner. So i applied my Sleek Mystic lipstick on top of the MAC Flat Out Fabulous. And that's it!

Top picture was taken in a yellow light setting and the picture below is taken in a white light setting. And these are the close shot of my eye makeup, lipstick colour (GAH, my lips STILL ended up looking dry) and my blush & contour.
