Big Brother has always been one of my favourite reality tv shows. I have watched it for years ( the civilian bb and the celeb bb) and I tweet about it most nights. I was overjoyed to find out that I had tickets be in the audience of Big Brother's bit on the side (for me and my Mam). To say I was excited to appear in the audience of the show was an understatement. Especially as I have always wanted to meet Rylan. He has always been the one celebrity that I have dreamed of meeting.
When I met him I did have a fan girl moment, I just couldn't help myself especially when he actually talked to me and held my hand. Totally worth the 7 hours travel.
Anyways, in this post I will be talking about the makeup and outfit that I wore. I wanted to get glammed up but not dress over the top.
I did wear a lot of makeup and this will seem like an extreme amount to some people, but to me it isn't. I wanted my face to look flawless and bronzed. I decided on a gold glitter smokey eye with a bright red lip. Even though I used a lot of products, the look was really easy to create.
This is the overall look that I created (taken in natural lighting and not edited)

How my makeup and OOTN looked on TV
Some people may call me vain but I did actually watch myself back on tv.
I did take these pictures of my tv whilst watching the show back (don't judge).
I took so many pictures but to stop this blog post from being even longer I've only included two pictures.
I had such a fantastic experience and something I will never ever forget. It was one of the things I have always wanted to do. Everything about the whole experience was amazing and I loved every minute of it.
It's something I'll never forget and I will continue to watch and tweet about the show.
