Wedding Ready with Cosmetify

Wedding season has arrived and I’ve already been to one and have two more to attend so far this year. Knowing I could see the same people at the next wedding as I did the first, I don’t intend to wear the same outfit or accessories. 
Wedding Ready with Cosmetify

When I got married I eloped abroad, Vegas in fact and because I didn’t have to worry about anyone other than myself and what I was wearing, it was a little bit more relaxed. Attending as a guest to what will be a huge wedding in a few months’ time is a little more stressful. What to wear, keeping in with the chosen theme, how to have my hair, nail polish colour, open sandals which could have a heel or be flat, lipstick shade, eyeshadow... do you have neutral or something slightly more dramatic to see you through to the evening.

Cosmetify is a site I have used a few times recently to help make some of those decisions above. As a beauty discovery website that features over 150,000 products from thousands of brands, you have everything you need right there in front of you. Whether you want something for your skin, makeup, hair or even electrical items and toiletries, they have thought of everything and it is one of the best platforms I have ever used. Like most people, I love to shop online, but having to open numerous windows can sometimes be a bore, so using Cosmetify, what you get is a powerful search engine of products which are shown across multiple retailers, including the likes of John Lewis and Feelunique and what you get is not only the best price but it also means if a product is sold out with one retailer, you can simply buy with another. If your favourite product is sold out with all the retailers, sign up to receive alerts and they’ll let you know as soon as it’s back in.

For the next wedding I am attending, it is a neutral rose gold theme, guests have been asked to keep their colour scheme neutral, which is harder than you think when dresses and outfits are all brightly coloured. Hats are not to be worn and as it is in a coach journey from the church to a stately home, comfort will be key. So my hair will be straight which is the easiest of all options but makeup I’ve found more difficult to choose. 

I love the less is more neutral look with the option of a smokey eye, but as I will be on the go during the day, I wanted a palette I could have the option of using for both looks.

Cosmetify kindly gifted the Stila Perfect Me, Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette which features a selection of easy-to-use eyeshadows and blushers. Within the palette, there are five eyeshadows and two shades of blush, in a variety of matte and shimmer finishes.
Stila Perfect Hue, Perfect Me
Firstly we have Alluring which is a soft pale pink shade and perfect as a base product, Breath-taking which is a soft neutral white which can be used as a highlighter, Passionate is a champagne pearl, Dynamic is a soft taupe which is perfect for the crease or as a lighter shade over the lid, Glamorous is a stunning warm chocolate brown which as well as being used for a smokey eye, can also be used a liner so everything you need to go from a neutral eye look to something a little more smokey. The blush shades are called Romantic is a really soft pale pink and Playful is a soft rose pink and of the two Playful is the one I have used the most and it is stunning.

When it comes to perfume, again, I am a huge fan of the DKNY Apple fragrances and the latest addition to my collection is Be Tempted Eau So Blush Eau de Parfum. A floral-woody fragrance it is perfect for Spring.
DKNY Eau so Blush
Featuring top notes like pink grapefruit, magnolia, red currant and red-orange it opens with quite a stunning citrus fruit scent that is just stunning. Leading into the softer heart notes of peony, jasmine and cedarwood which bring to life the floral notes which really simmer down those fruity notes. The base of creamy woods, apricot and solar musk bring together the top and heart notes to create a wonderful light powdery scent. Perfect for a wedding.

  1. I've never heard of there being a theme for guest dressing at weddings! It can be stressful enough deciding what to wear without a theme!

  5. That Stila palette is beautiful. I don't tend to go too bold unless I'm just going for the evening as you need something which is going to last for a long time x

  6. I find choosing an outfit for a wedding stressful enough without finding out there's a dress code!

  10. I hadn't heard of this site at all and am looking forward to having a right old search on it, especially as I am looking for a new perfume. I have to admit to being a bit shocked at there being a colour theme and 'rules' I would find that all a bit stressful.
