So I totally entered a kawaii make up competition for a lovely brand called Lady Kawaii. This is a thing I did over a week and a half ago. I am so totally late to the party on this one, as I kept completely forgetting to write about it. So here I am, the day before the competition ends, saying hey! Check out this thing I did! And if you like it, do you think you could spare a vote for me?

I would love to win this competition, not just for the super sweet prizes (Lady Kawaii’s logo T-shirt with my name on it, plus a whole lot of Lady Kawaii’s products), but also because I think Lady Kawaii is a super cute company, and I would love to be involved with the and an ambassador.

It was almost like it was meant to be because a few days before I heard about the competition I had my Jeffree star order arrive! I ordered the Beauty Killer Palette as well as “Virginity”. Lets all just take a moment to appreciate how pretty it all is <3

The Make Up

I had been itching for a reason to go all out with my new colours, and this was the opportunity I was looking for! I decided to go for a pinkie purple look, because well, lets face it, they are pretty much my go to colours for everything lol. To begin with, I did my brows just a light brown, then covered my lower lid with “Princess” and my upper lid with “China White”. I then filled my outer crease line with “Violence” and then blended, then blended some more with a lovely fluffy brush. I have a gorgeous purple shimmer loose eye shadow that I picked up in Vegas a few years ago that I then dusted over the whole lot. Of course, black winged eye liner is a must for me every time (I just really love it 😛 ) so I went and added that next with a black oil base liner and an eyeliner brush. The finishing touch was a set of lashes from Model Co. You can see the close up of my eyes in the picture below.

To get my cheeks such a lovely pink colour, I used a light pink highlighter along with a dark pink blush. My face is naturally always rosy red thanks to my Rosacea, so I enjoy being able to control the colour and contrast when I do my make up. For my lips, of course I just HAD to use Virginity. It is such a pretty colour and goes on so smooth. And OMG, it smells so DIVINE, I could almost eat it.Whilst it was still wet I got some loose dark pink glitter and pressed it onto my lips to give it a more textured look. And sparkly. We can'[t forget sparkly, because who doesn’t love glitter?

The Hair

Since I did this way before Vanessa at The Cutting Concept fixed the disaster that was my not-quite-so-black-anymore hair, I opted to put on my favourite pink wig and do a little bit of an up-do with some cute pig tails 🙂 I love the colour of this wig so much, that I hope to one day get my natural hair dyed to this colour. But we will see, I still remember what happened last time I went pink :S But hey, a girl can dream

The Outfit

Of course no photo shoot would be complete without a full matching outfit, so I put one together that I thought would match the style I was going for. It was a miss match of colour, and a little bit preppy, but still cute.

Outfit run down:

Wig: Long and light pink, with bangs. It also has a lot of white strands through it, so the ends look even more light and pastel

Top: This top is actually a dress! (although, a very short one 😛 ) I purchased this off an Etsy designer a few years ago because I just adored the print, and i thought the little chiffon ruffled sleeves were just too cute to pas sup.

Skirt:The skirt is just a plain white pleated skirt, which I believe I bought off Ali express. You will see me wearing it a lot, as I love it so much it is one of my regular go too pieces for cute outfits.

Socks: are a baby pink colour, with a cute fat lace around the top, and a little love heart sewn on with a bow on either side.

Shoes: My shoes I bought in some little store in Tokyo several years back, and are the most adorable shade of pink!

Accessories: For my accessories, in my hair you will find a big white bow and a small purple bow on either side. Around my neck is my favourite necklace at the moment, which has a pink rhinestone covered heart hanging from a string of pink pearls. All of which were purchased at Lovisa (In the kids section, lol!).

Let me just say this right now – I am getting too old for this shit 😛 There were so many underage kids at this thing I practically felt like a nana!

When they first announce the line up for Future music this year, I was dying to go. Two of my favourite bands The prodigy and Die Antwoord  were coming to Adelaide with the festival and I so badly wanted top see them. Then i found out no one I knew was going, and resigned myself to missing out. Then, the morning of whilst I was busy moping around about missing it my dear little brother calls me up and says he decided last-minute he wanted to go, and could I drive him in? Bugger that i though, and decided to splurge and spend the money to get myself a ticket.

My brother Andy and his friend Kara were my buddies for the day.

It turned out my friend Simon from school (whose shoulders I am sitting on below) had a spare ticket, so I bought it off him and off to the festival I went!

The day for me started off with a bit of a lag, I arrived only to discover I had left my ID at home, and since I had an adults ticket they wouldn’t let me in without it! Lucky for me Mr Tardo was feeling particularly kind, and after dropping us all off drove all the way home again and brought it back for me.

(Profanity warning: Don’t follow any of the music links if you are easily offended, specifically the Die Antwoord ones, some of these songs are quite rude and NSFW)

Once I eventually made it in, the first act we saw was Darude. You know, the guy who played Sandstorm? and feel the beat?

I freaking loved those songs when they first came out, so needless to say I was super disappointed when we stayed for his whole set and he didn’t actually play either of them. Not once. He dropped bits of sandstorm in here and there, but then didn’t actually play the whole thing. I was gutted. Not cool.

We didn’t really know any of the bands that were next in the line up, so we took a stab and picked on at random. We ended up seeing Sigma, and they were freaking awesome. They also played a few songs I had heard before, but didn’t know was them.

Next up we went and got some lunch and sat on the grass whilst we watched the Hilltop Hoods. As always, they were fantastic. Of course they played Crosby sweater along with a bunch of their other newer stuff, but they also played the Nosebleed Section which I thought was pretty cool.

By this point we decided it was time to get a good spot in the main room for Die Antwoord, which saw us catching the end of Nero’s set. By the time Die Antword came on, we were about a meter from the front and squished in like sardines. They started playing Fok Julle Naaiers as they came out on stage and the crowd just lost it. I think it was possibly the roughest mosh pit I have ever been in, but I was doing ok holding myself up. At least I was, until Ninja decided to jump into the crowd right in front of me. The crush that came after that almost saw me hit the ground.

I bailed for a safer distance a bit further back after that, my brother Andy and his mate Kara stayed right up the front for the whole thing though. Ninja went crowd surfing a few more times after that, and my brother Andy said he ended up holding his head at one point and got to have a few words with him which he was super happy about. Damn they put on a good show though, and they played all my favourites, including Fatty Boom Boom and Cookie Thumper .

Once they finished it was back into the mosh for me to find Andy and Kara, and once I had we made our way to the front to wait for The Prodigy to come on stage. We got ourselves a spot right up against the fence smack bang in the middle and waited for them to start. This was the 4th time I had seen The Prodigy live, and they are always amazing, although their shows are usually pretty rough as well. This one was a little more bearable though as this time there was no crowd surfing.

Oh man were they good. They saw us partying down the front and kept throwing us bottles of water and interacting with us, it was so cool. I managed to get that awesome photo up there of the main guy telling me off. Apparently we were having a moment, so he pointed and told me to put my phone away. Lol.

By the end of the festival I was exhausted. My hips didn’t take kindly to me spending a whole day jumping around, but it was so worth it to finally see Die Antwoord play live. What a day!
