FOTD/EOTD - I Saw Her Standing There; A Beatle-ey Look...

Back with another look from another concert I attended!

A couple of weeks ago I attended another performance from my local Philharmonic. This time it was a performance of The Classical Mystery Tour. Yep. The Beatles. I lagged on getting tickets and before I knew it, they were sold out. ONLY...I won free tickets again one day before the show!! :) I really don't know what's going on, I never win things! This time I called in to a local radio station, it was really pure luck.

Anyways, the show featured members from the original Beatlemania show on Broadway and featured our Philharmonic performing with them on stage, which totally gave each Beatles classic a beautiful lush sound. And the guys performing as the group sounded amazing. They sang just like them, played just like them, and from the back of the theater where I was sitting at (haha, I won balcony seats, but for a sold out show, beggars can't be choosers), even looked like them. They played for a good 2 hours and performed everything from "I Want To Hold Your Hand" to "Get Back." I took my best friend along with me (a fellow Beatles aficionado) and had a blast singing out loud to all the songs. It was Beatles Bonding :D

To make a long story short...
(To Late!)
Here's the look I sported that night...




-For my bases: Wet 'n' Wild Cream Shadow in Cafe Au Lait and NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Mocha
-Lid: A mixture of NYX Mocha Pearl loose shadow and MAC Sweet Sienna pigment
-Crease: Mark's Retro Peacock
-Outer Corner: A tad of Lancome's The New Black
-Highlight: MAC Rose Blanc
-Liner: On the lid, Jane's Mineral Gel liner in Brown, and on the lower lashline, Styli-Style's Line & Seal 24 Pencil in Black Brown
-Brows: Maybelline Define-A-Brow
-Mascara: Maybelline Full 'n' Soft



Full face...unfortunately this was taken at 3 in the morning when I finally got home after more Beatles singing and Wii playing at said friends house, so, it's not the freshest. But here it is anyways:



I used my regular face stuff like Rimmel's Stay Matte foundation in Ivory and Make Up Forever Full Cover Concealer in #4. I'm pretty sure there's some trace of MAC Pinch O' Peach blush somewhere. The one "Beatles" item I'm wearing is L'Oreal Color Juice Stick in Strawberry Fields (kind of faded here, but I am wearing it)...I mean, I had to wear it.

I didn't take too many shots of the concert, but here's one I managed to snap during the Sgt. Pepper section of the show:



CHALLENGE:
Comment with any and all cosmetic items you can think of that has a BEATLES reference to it. Aren't as crazy about The Beatles as I am? Don't know song titles? Here's some help. Humor me. Let's see how many you can think of.

Oh no I'm all blank for your challenge, but I just want to comment to let you know your eye make up is GORGEOUS!

Oh wow. This is such a great contest but I can't think of any names. And even my Beatles-head Fiance can't help.

Have you seen the Powerpuff Girls episode The Beat Alls? Great one.

I have no idea how to start the challenge. However, I just wanted to let you know that your look is fantastic. Congrats on winning the tickets and enjoying the concert. You are such a music lover!!!

Your lashes look fab! I'm jealous.

I'm not good with the Beatles referances. I know SpaRitual has nail polishes named after Beatles songs. "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" and "Strawberry Fields Forever" to name a few :)

That's a gorgeous eye look!

Strawberry Fields from China Glaze's Summer Days collection is all I can think of. I was going to say Orly's Shine On Crazy Diamond, but that's Pink Floyd.
