Debs season in Ireland is well and truely under way. My debs was on the 8th September 2010, so almost a year ago. I thought I would do a quick post on my experience and some tips to make sure your debs goes well for you.
I did everything myself, my own hair, makeup, tan etc here's a quick rundown:
Hair: Disaster. I thought my extensions were longer than they really were, and when I curled them, they were way too short, so I was really unhappy with my hair on the night. I basically curled it with my GHD and teased it A LOT. I wore a hairband that I bought in Pennys for about €1:50.
Makeup: I used a Rimmel foundation, and Urban Decay Eyeshadows. I wore the Girls Aloud Party Lashes, I think they were the Nadine ones, they didn't make that much of a difference to my lashes though so I would not recommend them. I also used a bronzer from Pennys and I can't remember what I wore on my lips.
Nails: False Press On's from Pennys were about €2 and they had a really cute butterfly design on them.
Tan: 2 coats of St. Moriz & some Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs in Deep Glow.
Dress: Bought on a website that can be accessed through Ebay. It's called Dresselicious and it's Irish, all the dresses are really affordable, I think mine was about €70. I would recommend buying a dress online as there will be a lower chance of someone having the same one as you.
Shoes: Bought from a small local shop for €40.
Bag: Borrowed from one of my best friends, from Pennys so it can't have been too expensive!
Accessories: All from Pennys.
- Don't worry about your dress, it's going to get destroyed anyway.
- Avoid unnecessary drama, no one wants that!
- Drink as much as you want.....but try to avoid throwing up...
- Take LOTS of photos.
- Remember your friends are more important than your date!
- Don't let ANYONE or ANYTHING ruin your night :)
Hope you enjoy! And you've already celebrated, I'd love to know how it went :)
