OOTN: Curry with the 'grown ups' and a rant about cameras

Major issues with photography at the moment. Silly cameras. My trusty camera, well camera phone, my old old Samsung Pixon 12, that I've kept for use as a camera for years sadly broke over Christmas (at some point during a drunken mosh to Slipknot's 'Spit It Out', which got rather crazy, especially in a tiny pub with limited space and old timber frames!). The camera on that phone could go up to 12 mega pixels and had so many great settings and brilliant macro. It was great for my blog photography, close-ups of products and make-up. But now, it's broken :( I'm a very sad Zo. Dad has borrowed me his digicam but it is rubbish, macro doesn't work, the photos often come out blurred (which I can't tell until I upload them to laptop!) and my current phone, Galaxy S camera is ok, but not for macro, plus it does not have a flash.

So basically, my blog photos are mostly going to be poo at the moment...

I can't rave enough about the Pixon 12 as a camera. I'm desperately trying to locate one for sale. If you know of any, please let me know! Alternatively, a Sony Ericsson Satio.

^Major rant about cameras!^

So, I went out with my parents and their friends tonight. I think they invited me out of pity for me being skint and about to have a lonely night in...
Dad treated me to a curry, my second paid for meal of the day, as my boss treated us all to lunch at a lovely country pub near our future office today.
Well, you'd have thought that I was the parent tonight... I was sober, everyone else was drunk. They then decided to start dancing in the curry house to the old 90's dance songs, then love songs and then...THEN, MEATLOAF CAME ON! Oh, the horror. Most of them were dancing, singing and then Chris, whose birthday it was, decided to start howling over and over, really loud. It was funny but I could see the staff wanted us out, as I'm sure the other customers did...

It was entertaining and cheered me up, as I got a little emotional last night!

Here's (some rubbish photos, boohoo! of) what I wore tonight:

This is what happens when I use dad's camera, extreme flash and blur)
This is my face, beginning and end of night... Also slightly different quality and colour even though both taken in same lighting on my camera phone...
The right photo shows my flaws. My forehead is pretty dry right now BUT my pores are improving :)
First try of Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara and Sexy Mother Pucker 'Punch Bowl' Lipgloss from the Best of All set (Christmas 2012). The mascara is pretty standard, I've used better. The lipgloss is nice, a little sticky though. Whilst I can't fault most Soap & Glory products, I wouldn't re-purchase either of these.
My hair looks so dry in this photo, it really isn't that bad!

I spent ages when I got home, trying to get decent photos of the make-up that I used tonight, only to discover that they are nowhere to be found (the pics, not the products - thankfully!), pretty peed that all the pics are gone and time wasted though. So, I'll just have to list the products used:

Benefit That Gal Brightening Face Primer
17 Hide & Chic Foundation in 'Natural' (this is too dark for my skin but until I get paid I am having to make-do with old foundation!)
17 Miracle Matte Pressed Powder in 'Silky Beige' (recently purchased, review soon!)
17 Instant Glow Bronzing Pearls in 'Light'
Accessorize Merged Eyeshadow Shade 6 'Cocoa'
Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara (first try with this, from the Best of All set)
Barry M Waterproof Eyeliner 'Black'
Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker 'Punch Bowl' Lipgloss (as with mascara, first try, from Best of All).

Peplum: Primark
Skirt: Primark
Cardi: New Look (yeeears old!)
Tights: Asda
Boots: New Look (love these!)
Bag: Asda (oldie)

No7 'Spice', mattified with Rimmel Pro Matte Finish top coat (I love the result!)

The cardi and bag have not been used for probably 2 years or more, so I dug them out tonight.
