This weeks Antipodean Beauties challenge was 'All About Eyes'. This should have been right up my alley - I always go for bright, dramatic eyes and tone down the rest of my face. I love experimenting with colour and will happily wear just about any colour - usually to match the outfit I am wearing.
The last week had been crazy busy for me. The start of the month is always busy at work so blogging has to go on the back burner. I was thinking that I wouldn't be able to get a post out until last night when The Crazy Kid was Facebook stalking me (he loves snooping through all of my photos!). He came across the set below from the wedding I went to last year, in Hawaii. I had very dramatic eyes! At the time of the wedding I was 28 weeks pregnant with Kiki. I remember struggling to find a dress suitable to wear. In both of my pregnancies I didn't really show at all until week 22 when I suddenly popped. I think that I was shopping for this dress before I had popped so was trying to work out whether it would still look good when I got a bit bigger and whether it would even fit. The dress was from Sheike and was not a maternity dress. Thankfully, it fit perfectly and I even managed to wear it to another wedding when I was 31 weeks pregnant and then to another wedding when I was 6 months post partum! I though that this look was perfect for the All About Eyes challenge (even though it is only mostly about eyes, a bit about bump, and also about that awesome dress!).
The dress was such a stunning colour that I really wanted to wear shadows to match. The look was created using the Yaby World of Pearl Palette. I had just bought the Urban Decay Potion Primer from Sephora so used that as my eye shadow primer. I couldn't tell you what mascara I used.

To get the sheen on my skin (body, not face) I used the Face of Australia Shimmer Gel.
