A few years ago we went to an eighties party and it was fabulous fun. Because I wanted my makeup to stand out I actually went to the Bobbi Brown counter at myer and they did my makeup for me. The make up artists thought it was so much fun to go out there so I got lots of blush, blue eyeshadow with pink as a highlighter. Lots of eyeliner was also needed. I bought a beautiful creme blush as a thanks because I didn't want to take advantage of their help, although they had lots of fun too. I also bought a pink bow from Diva, and did the side pony I liked so much as an eighties thing. I think costume parties are a lot of fun and should not be reserved for just Halloween because it is a good laugh all year round.
Lo and behold our outfits. Mike wore an old leather jacket, a bandana, red sunnies and jeans. I bought a bow-tie singlet and a skirt from Supre and purple stockings from Myer. It truly was quite the combination. The red nails and wine finished it off perfectly.
Are you a fan of costume parties? Do you like the eighties look?
