Aria Night Out Look

You guys might not know this, but I'm going on holiday with my family in November and December for three weeks as part of my sister's Graduation present (which handily coincides with my mother's week long meeting in New Orleans and her airmiles and hotel points covering all flights and remaining hotels xD). One of the places we shall be visiting is Las Vegas (I have visited once before as part of my Graduation present, which also handily coincided with a long San Diego meeting and a lot of airmiles and hotel points) so when Aria got in touch with me to ask if I wanted to create a look as part of their #AriaNightOut campaign I was all over it! I loved Vegas last time I went, okay so it was very hot and I kind of burned my feet so badly I couldn't walk (I took off my socks for less than five minutes! stupid given it was June, but goddamn), but all the glitz and glam and lights were amazing. We stayed in a budget hotel and it was still amazing. 

If you want to know more about the Aria I took a few bits from the description from their website (which you can visit by clicking on this lovely link right here) to give you an idea, though I think the photos I've added to this post should give you a good look at how stunning the place is!
With an aura of minimalism, Aria stands tall as a hip resort in the heart of both the Las Vegas Strip and the incredible CityCenter urban complex. Sophisticated and chic, it sports a design that spans modern architecture, but also is environmentally thoughtful. In fact, the U.S. Green Building Council has awarded Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design's Gold certification to Aria’s hotel tower, convention center and theater.
The design excellence at Aria is embraced in the resort's 4,572 lavish rooms and suites. Natural light streams in through floor-to-ceiling windows. The décor makes use of dramatic colors, expressive artwork and materials that convey relaxation. As part of the high-tech amenities, guests are able to personalize their preferences for the curtains, lights and more by simply touching a menu on the TV screen. Among the standard amenities are custom mattresses, plush robes, a 42-inch LCD television, an in-room safe, a dual vanity and a separate shower and soaking tub.
Lovely to look at from every angle and filled with unexpected delights, Aria's sophisticated style is sure to wow you -- as will its exquisite dining and relaxation opportunities. Plus, the personalized, high-tech touch service guarantees you'll have an exceptional stay during your Las Vegas visit.

This is the picture I was inspired by when I created my look, this is my favourite bit of Vegas. While I love the sophistication and glamour of the rest of the Aria, when I think Vegas I think parties and debauchery and good old fashioned fun. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas after all ;). Plus, clubs means I can throw plenty of glitter on there, and you all know how I love glitter!

This is the look I created now that my eye is healed (I've had some psoriasis type issues with my lids lately), a purple and black smokey eye, with touches of gold and plenty of glitter. Plus a few gemstones, because what better excuse? The colours I used were Victorian Disco Sailor Galaxia for the gold, Victorian Disco Eldar and Shiro Shinigami for the purple and a touch of Geek Chic Baby for the black. The glitters are a mix of UAV and Riot Shield from Victorian Disco and Collection glitter liner.


  1. WOW, your trip sounds amazing, I'm so jealous. The eye makeup looks lovely!
