Gypsy Look for office fancy dinner party

The theme of our dinner party at kick off meeting in Hua Hin, Thailand was fancy party (Nov 29, 2009). So everyone can wear fancy outfit or costumes. Maybe because we were not that too far from Halloween?

From Indonesia office, we decided to have our own theme, which was wearing batik. The ladies wore Batik skirt and with other style creation, while the gentlemen wore Batik pants with Kabayan theme.

As this was my first costume party, I really wanted to look differently.
I decided to go with Gypsy Look. Well..... Before the team made decision about the final theme, I was thinking to rent West Sumatera outfit, but there was no big size outfit for me and with the lengthy time of traveling, the cost of rent will be expensive!
I was thinking to borrow long curly wig from a friend of mine, but I didn't have time to pick it up at my friend's house.

Here's how I looked like that night:

I can still cover my head with headscarf.
White ruffle blouse, bought at JACC Tanah Abang, Rp 60K
Batik skirt, bought at JACC Tanah Abang, Rp 65K
Beads, vintage from my late mom's collection
Hoop earrings, bought at Poins Square Lebak Bulus, Rp 35K
Red roman slippers, Charles & Keith, Malaysia, RM 59.40
Blue soft lens

And......for the make up look, I finally had a chance to try Meow's Halloween Collection.

I made a research in internet for gypsy look make up and gypsy style, I even inspired to wear fake

I found this tutorial on doing gypsy look and wearing falsies in Youtube.

Here's what I used:

- Everyday Minerals base, Medium Beige, Matte. Wet application. This is the darkest base I have, I choose it because of the recommendation I read from Internet: darker tone and bronzing.
- The All Natural Face hydration mist in Patchouli for spraying the base foundation and for finishing
- Everyday Minerals face powder, Finishing Dust
No concealer needed, and with wet application of the base, it really helped to cover my blemishes.
- Earthen Glow Minerals, Bermuda Bronzer
- NYX Mosaic Powder Blush in MPB10

Lumiere shimmer in cola, foiled (no.1)
Meow's Halloween, Dead of Night, foiled (no.2)

Meow's Friday the 13th, Supernatural (no.4)
Aromaleigh gel eye liner in Magnetism
NYX Doll mascara

From the final look, I can see that I need to have more practise for blending the eye colors. It wasn't that smooth.
