Outfit and face of the evening: Wicked & Don Giovannis

Sunday, October 27, 2013
Yesterday myself, my sister, mum and a couple of friends went to Don Giovannis on Oxford street in Manchester and then we went to Wicked the musical which is currently playing at the Manchester Palace Theatre. Here is a quick fote (face of the evening), oote (outfit of the evening) and a mini review of the restaurant and Wicked. Firstly here is my makeup and outfit of the evening!




Firstly, my makeup - I used my new favourite foundation, the Max Factor Smooth Effect foundation in the shade 40 Porcelain and I freakin' love it! I am definitely writing a review of this foundation soon. I then used another new buy, the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in the shade Ivory which I like but I don't think it is amazing. I applied the Nars Pro Prime then a couple of the nude shades from the S&G Whats Nude Quad. For eyeliner, I used the Clinique Brush on Liner in Black which I have had for years and it is just as good as the day I bought it. To set the liner, I use a black shade. I filled in my brows with the matte brown and black from the Sleek Oh So Special Palette. The mascara I used is the Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Waterproof. For lips I use the Kiko lip liner in the shade 404 and the Revlon Balm Stain in Honey over the top which gives a gorgeous peachy pink lip. 

For my outfit - tank top: Forever 21, Cardigan: H&M, Jacket: Promod, Jeans: Asos and Boots: Newlook. I also used the Bumble and Bumble thickening creme contour in my hair and I wore the gorgeous Molecule one perfume - I can still smell it! Oh and I had on my Kurt Geiger bella ring (I think it is called the bella ring but it is gunmetal and I love it!). I also used the babylis big hair to shape the ends of my hair.
We have never been to Don Giovannis before, it is an Italian restaurant and bar on Oxford street, Manchester. The decor from the outside is gorgeous, lit up with fairy lights and inside is just as nice. I had a mushroom risotto which was nice but we did have to hurry as we were running a bit late for Wicked. Overall, the restaurant was nice although it was very busy and a bit loud. 

Now, Wicked! The story line is about the good witch Glinda and and wicked witch of the west, Elphaba. It is about their friendship and how they became who they are in the Wizard of Oz. I loved the stage set up, the set was amazing. The singing, costumes and story was fantastic. In my opinion, there were a couple of boring bits but they didn't last long such as practically most scenes with the wonderful wizard of Oz in. Overall, it is a great story and definitely worth seeing - although I probably wouldn't take children to see it.

  1. Pretty! Looks like you had a fab time. Reading this I've just realised that I've sort of forgotten the plot line a little bit for the Wizard of Oz, maybe a rewatch is in order!
