Hey Dreamers, in September we went to our much anticipated Upper Sixth Formal! We loved getting dressed up and had a fabulous night!! At the same time it was sad because it marked the beginning of the end of our school days! We wanted to show you guys our dresses, hair and makeup so if you have a formal coming up you may get some inspiration! :)
I fell in love with the dress on the Next website in the Lipsy department. This was mostly due to the amazing shoulder detail! The high neck gave it a classy look but the cut-outs gave it an edge. The fact it was black meant it was perfect for approaching winter and was also very flattering.
As soon as I walked into Lipsy this dress caught my attention! I loved the vibrant red colour along with the pink undertones. My favourite part of the dress was the iridescent detail. The fact it was pinched in slightly at the waist with the detail meant it was very flattering.
Meg decided to have her hair in an up-do for our formal so the detail on the shoulders of her dress could be seen. She had a messy but sophisticated up-do in which her hair dresser curled her hair and pinned up pieces individually. Lots of hairspray and clips were needed!
Jess wanted to keep her hair down and have the front bits clipped back in a braid. Her hair dresser did a waterfall braid and made long, loose, wavy curls. This gave her a formal yet relaxed look with the beachy curls.
Meg wanted to go for a golden-silver eye look which was smoked with brown eye-shadow. Her brow bone was highlighted with a white-silver shade. She went for a bronzed foundation look and a natural lip.
Jess' eye make-up was a silver and black smokey look with quite heavy eye liner. Her cheekbones were illuminated with shimmery highlighter and her lips were a neutral, pinky brown.
Here are a few pictures from the night...
