Happy March! It’s been a long time since I’ve done an OOTD. This weekend, I had the honor of attending one of my cousin’s 30th birthday party in Chesapeake, VA. The theme was a “30 Shades of Beauty” Masquerade party.
Now I WOULD accept an invite to a masquerade party, and not have a mask. Luckily, I was helping out with decorations and picked one up at a local Party City. Not the best, but it went with my look and was better than the Hello Kitty one I was considering.
The party called for semi-formal attire. I knew about it for about a month, but between vacation, work and life overall, I didn’t have time to shop. I pulled out an oldie but goodie Little Black Dress I purchased a few years ago that still fit (winning).
Necklace: Reshma’s Closet
Because we wore masks most of the night, I didn’t bother with much makeup. I really didn’t have to wear eyeshadow, but I did.
Foundation: Shea Moisture Sheer Foundation in Havasu Hazel
Blush: MAC Ambering Rose
Eyeshadow: MAC Wonder Woman Palette
Lips: Maybelline Maple Kiss
I had a fun time. The weather was beautiful and the vibes were great. Most importantly, my cousin enjoyed her birthday celebration. Next year will be my own “year of 30” and I am working on a list of things I want to do before then.
Have you attended a masquerade party?
