Urban Decay Bases

Urban Decay has been one of my favourite brands for a long time now, with multiple eyeshadow palettes in my collection, and my love for the Naked Skin Concealer. Recently I decided to try out some products that were new to me, and chose the Naked Skin Foundation, B6 Complexion Prep Spray and the coveted Eyeshadow Primer Potion. `gag

The Naked Skin Foundation is one that I'd wanted to try for a long time, after my love for the matching concealer, and it didn't disappoint. It creates a flawless base, which is matte yet leaves you with a healthy glow too. The Eyeshadow Primer Potion makes my eyeshadow stand out even more, and gives a greater effect to the pigment, as well as ensuring that it stays in place all day without any creasing. I use the B6 Complexion Prep Spray as a finishing spray, as I did previously with the all-nighter spray, and find it works for a midday refresh of my makeup, and giving my skin the hydration it needs!

Worst Wedding Ever @ Salisbury Playhouse

When another email landed in my inbox from Salisbury Playhouse inviting me along to watch Worst Wedding Ever, it was an instant yes! I'd heard rave reviews of the prodcution, and couldn't wait to go.

Throughout the production, I found myself consistently laughing out loud, as parts are hysterical, and my friend who I went with said that she could definitely draw similarities with the play and her own experience of wedding planning! There is an underlying theme which adds another dimension to the play, and reveals the perceptions that we have of one another, and the reality of a family.

The production itself was simple but effective, with the majority of the play taking place in the back garden of the family home, with minimal changes being made to show the progression of the play. The costumes were perfectly matched to their characters, and the actors themselves were outstanding.

This was one of the best and funniest productions that I have seen, and I've been raving about it and encouraging everyone I know to go and see it since!

Worst Wedding Ever is at Salisbury Playhouse until the 25th of February, make sure you don't miss it!
