Tea for Two… or FIVE: Tea Party Inspiration and Ideas

Tea for Two… or FIVE!!

Today was my photo-shoot with MTran Photography [a brilliant woman who takes even more brilliant photographs!!] and my 4 flatmates from England!!!  We created a vintage whimsical tea party at Mt. Woodson Castle and the photos will be out as soon as I get them!! I can’t wait to showcase them.  In the meantime however, check out our inspiration.  We took bits and pieces of sets that we admired and, in my opinion created the best of them all :]

Eye Liners receive: 

Eyeliners come in many gorgeous colours, and work beautifully on the skin.  If you are putting them on your skin on your eyelid or under your waterline, they work perfectly!! However, if you wise to use them in your waterline- I would think twice. Although they perform well on skin, their ability to give pigment to your waterline is not that great.

Lip Liners receive:

Lip liners give great pigmentation and are of great quality!!

Jumbo Lip Pencil receives:

The JLP are just as the JEP!! They are great quality and come in an array of gorgeous colours!!

Liquid Liner receives:

NYX Lipstick:

NYX Lipsticks come in ENDLESS colours and are beautiful.  Some have a nice sheen to them and other are a beautiful matte finish.  Some of MAC’s matte finishes are a little TOO matte because they can flake off…  But the NYX matte colours are the perfect balance of hydration and matte finish!!

Et c’est fin!!

Hard Candy EYE DEF Metallic Eyeshadow:

To give a good understanding of what the colours look like when packed on with colour & when smoothed and blended out- I gave 2 swatches of each colour.  That way you can judge for yourself if you like how they blend out :]

Hard Candy Duo Hide & Glow Cheek Tint:

The cheek tint works quite beautifully.  Although it is difficult to see in photograph- the colour is beautiful and blends quite nicely.  It is important to not have the colour of your blush POP too much… You’re not a China doll after all 😉

Hard Candy Lipstick

Oh. My. Gosh.  This lipstick SMELLS divine!!  I had multiple people smell it to give feedback on what they smelled because it just smells so good to everyone- YET smells different to everyone as well.  Some people said ti smelled of  orange & brown sugar.  Others: vanilla and honey. The list goes on and on, but the consensus is that it smells FANTASTIC!!  It also puts a nice peachy sheen on your lips and hydrates them nicely!!
