Date night outfit feat. Dresslink

Hey guys!

It’s time for the last Dresslink post for now. As I wrote in the last post I got a dress from them as well. Since it’s Saturday I thought I’d share it as some inspiration for a date night look.

I’m still working on getting comfortable with these full figure shots. I still have a long way to go, but at least this time I didn’t delete as many pictures right away as I usually do. The clothes are great, but I think the most I have to thank Dresslink for is the fact that the opportunity to work with them made me get in front of the camera starting to take outfit pictures, without it being a “phone/camera in the hand in front of a mirror”-picture.

Dresslink Dress

This dress was slightly big for me, but nothing two pieces of Hollywood Fashion Tape in the neckline couldn’t fix. (If you don’t own this wonderful invention you should get running for it immediately after reading this post. It’s a double sided tape that doesn’t affect fabric and skin, and is perfect for deep cleavages, hiding bra straps and a lot more)

This dress is just the type of dresses I love. A bit of cleavage, which slims the body a bit if you have big breasts. It’s tight enough to show the curves, but draped nicely to hide a bit of the tummy. I also love the asymmetrical skirt. I haven’t really fallen for the midi skirt trend yet, but as this dress is a bit shorter on one side I like it anyway.

The dress can be found here, for only $6,04 at the moment.

On the pictures I’ m wearing it with flat ballerinas from Primark and an old bolero from Gina Tricot, that is an absolute favorite. It’s very thin and works great with every dress if you just want to cover up your arms a bit.

For makeup I chose a very soft smokey eye and a berry lipstick to add a bit of colour and some autumn feelings.

On Monday I’m going to Paris with Martin for a short trip. I will schedule a post to come up while I’m gone. In that post I’ll tell you about something I’ve been up to lately and share something that inspires me while I do what I do.

What do you think of the outfit posts I’ve been doing lately? Would you like to see more of these?

Makeup Revolution – Pink and brown

Hi there!

Since I’ve been having trouble with my eyes and eyelids for a couple of days I haven’t had the chance to try out all the makeup I got from Makeup Revolution the other day. But yesterday everything seemed fine, so today I was ready to give it a go. I’ve used eye shadows from the Ultimate Eyeshadow Collection, and was really happy with how they came out. The pigment was good, and they were easy to build up and blend. The lipstick is also from Makeup Revolution and is Liphug in colour She’s up all night. The lipstick also has great pigment and is easy to apply. I think it lasts good for a £2.50 lipstick, so I will definitely be buying more of these in the future.

Before I started I had decided for a neutral look, with matte brown shadows, since I was just staying at home. When I picked up my palette that was an impossible mission though. There were so many fun colours, and I just wanted to play around. I ended up with something in between and went for brown and pink.

I know these pictures are far from the best out there, and I’m really struggling to catch the eye makeup on photo. The colours just won’t come to it’s right. I truly hope they will help us with this in school since a lot of our work will be done at home and photographed to show the teachers. If you have any good tips and tricks how practice until then, please let me know!

1920’s look

Good evening!

This weekend me and Martin was invited to a party with a 1920’s theme. A theme I liked since it meant all in on make up. I spent quite a lot of Unfortunately we were working under real time pressure since both of us were working all night, so pictures of the whole outfit and a pictured walk through on the make up fell out of the schedule. You will be able to follow my thoughts in text though.

The 1920’s were much about a light colored skin tone, so I went through my make up collection to find the lightest of my foundations. The choice fell on my Matte/FX foundation from Beauty UK in color 01 Ivory. A light coverage was all I needed to my pale winter skin for this look. A bit of Collection’s Lasting Perfection concealer in 01 Fair was used to brighten up under the eyes. I’m a big fan of bronzer but that was left out this time and I only used a little bit of blush on the apples of my cheek. I picked 2true No.1, which is probably my most used shade.

The eyes got a lot of attention. Starting with the brow, I used my Kohl Pencil from Kicks (Single Espresso) and More Brows from Model Co (Medium/Dark) to shape and draw the eyebrows downwards. With eyeshadows from MUA – Undressed I created a really smokey eye. I used Rose Ash as a base, and Cool Grey and Fuel for the smokiness. Fuel is the darker color of the two, and that’s the one I used for the inner corners and faded out to Cool Grey in the outer corners. The other way around from how most people wear their make up now. To frame the eyes I used a black inliner from Färg and a felt liner from P.S.Love (Primark). With the felt liner I created a wing as well. For the upper lashes I used Diorshow mascara and for the lower lashes I chose False Lash Architect from L’oréal Paris. I find the L’oreal mascara perfect for the lower lashes since the brush is thin and the color is quite dry, which makes it easy to catch the small lashes without painting everything else around the eye black.

The lipstick was deep red applied with a fair Cupids’s bow on the upper lip. I used my YSL lipstick in 204 and a small lip pencil for application.

I was very happy with the look, and I got so much nice response from people at the party. Will definitely go for this look again if I get an opportunity to, or just for fun! It’s really not something I would go for for every day use.

What do you think of the look?

I made the picture black and white to catch the 1920’s feeling, but if you click it you’ll see it in the original colors.

Tutorial – Green eyes

Hey there!

The other day I got the question if I had an olive green eye shadow to recommend, so I thought I’d share what eye makeup I use when I want to match my green wardrobe.

To this look I’ve been using the following: 
1. Undressed Palette from MUA, colours Puff and Hazle.
2. Eye shadow from Sephora in colour Python bag No 45
3. H&M eyeliner in Soft Green
4. Felt Eyeliner Pen from Primark
5. Black eyeliner from Färg
6. Diorshow Mascara
7. Lip pen from Makiash in colour 2 cold plum
1. I’m starting off with Puff from MUA all over the eyelid, up to the eyebrows.
2. MUA Hazel over the lid
3. Sephora Python Bag in the outer corners and the crease.
4. Closest to the lash line I use my felt liner, and just above it I use the Soft Green eyeliner from H&M to make the green colour pop a bit more.
5. For the final look I’ve added black eyeliner from Färg inside the lower lashline, the Diorshow mascara and my absolute favorite lipcolour at the moment, Cold Plum from Makiash.
Did you enjoy the tutorial? Something I should keep doing? Anything I should do differently? Comment below to let me know your thoughts. 
Also, do you have any favorite colours of eye shadow that isn’t the black/grey smokey eye or the more natural brown/beige look? 
See you again soon! 

Outfit of the day

Hi!

It’s my time of the year again! Even though I long for every season of the year when it’s about to change, I must say I’m defiantly a fall girl. I love when it’s a bit chilly outside, and I can stay in for a cup of tea and light candles, or dress up in a scarf and jacket and go outside for a walk without getting to warm. And when it comes to clothes this is also my time of the year. Our store is quite cold, so the whole summer I’ve had to put clothes on when I get in, and take it off when I go out. Now it’s the other way around, as it’s supposed to be. The colours now are more my cup of tea as well.

When I was sick last week I treated myself to internet shopping and a new dress for the season to come. It arrived the other day, and I found it to be perfect with the new tights from work. I also got to use one of my favorite nail polishes, that has been a bit to dark for summer.

Dress – Anna Field, Cardigan – Primark, Tights- Twilfit, Nail polish – IsaDora Sugar Nails 108 Wine Crush 

Outfit of the day – Black and White

About to run of to work in a few minutes, but I thought I’d have time for an Outfit of the day post. Tonight (or maybe tomorrow, since I might be too tired after working closing hours) I’ll be doing the Liebster award that I was nominated to. It made my day to wake up to that!

Dress was a Supermarket find in Thailand. One of my
absolute favorites. Cardigan from Primark. 40 den leggings

Shoes from Thailand. Really love the fact that I found a pair of ballerinas
that works for my thin, but long, feet!

Ring from Topshop. Favorite accessory at the moment.

As always, my beloved bracelets. If you like them you have the chance
to get your own in my giveaway here.

Outfit of the day

New week, new possibilities. I’m pretty sure this week will be better than the last. Our friend woke up this Saturday, an even if there’s lot of rehab left at least he’s alive and awake. For me, this week will bring a lot of work (only one day free) and my father’s birthday is coming up. Still trying to figure out what to give him.
Making another outfit of the day post today. Not wearing a skirt to work today. That’s not happening very often!
At work they are trying to sell more casual clothing (before we just sold nightwear and underwear) so we got some really nice pants. They are perfect to just walk around at home, but with a nice blouse they look great for work as well. I used them this weekend, and I sold a few of them by wearing them a bit more dressed up. 
Today I’m wearing them with a top from Primark. I bought it a few years ago, and that year I traveled quite a lot, so I’ve been trying to figure out where I got it. After a while of thinking I decided it must have been in Dublin. 
For a bit more luxurious touch I’m wearing a necklace from Topshop. Really love this one!

Details of the day

I didn’t have time to clean the mirror this morning, and the sun really shows the lack of cleaning, and I didn’t have anyone to help me take pictures of today’s outfit. Blogging is one of those small things in life  that I really enjoy, so I couldn’t not make a post for today. The details of an outfit is also quite important to me, so for today that’s what the post will be about today.
For my friend at the hospital things are looking even better today, and they are slowly preparing to wake him up. Keep your fingers crossed for him  for a few more  days until we know for sure everything is all right!
Let’s get back to those details. 
  • New season leo tights from work (Twilfit) 
  • Nail polish from Calvin Klein (71302 Sheer sparkle)
  • Ring inherited from my Grandmother
  • Shamballa style bracelets (Home made)
  • Bling stud earrings from Primark

First March outfit

March is here! For me, that means spring. The weather is not so inspiring at the moment though, so I’ll stick with black and white for today as well. I did buy another nail polish that yells spring though, which I will probably fix as soon as I get home from work today. Spent the night out with my best friend last night, so there wasn’t really time for painting nails then. Must admit I am a bit tired today!

Anyhow. Spring is coming. I’ll be working all day. No matter how tired I am, I had to get dressed today too.

Today I’m wearing a skirt from Bubbleroom that I bought before the work meeting this Thursday. The tank top is the one from Hanro that I wrote about this week as well. Cardigan from Primark, same as yesterday. For hosiery I’m wearing Falke Pure Shine 15 den. (I’ve scheduled a post about tights that will be posted later today, with my thoughts on how to pick the right ones in the jungle of hosiery)

The necklace was one of the first “real” ones that I got. I inherited it from my Grandmother and remember I was told I should be careful, but use it well. Think I was about 5 years old. It’s a silver necklace with red amber, and I still find it very beautiful.

Outfit of the day

The outfit of  the day posts seems quite popular. Both post have sailed up to the top on the view list. So, here we go again!

Today I’m wearing a lace skirt from JC, a golden tank top from Gina Tricot. That top can be the oldest garment in my closet, but after 8 years (I think. I know I wore it on a school photo) I still love it, so it will hang on for a while longer. The cardigan is from Primark, and one of the most used garment in the closet. Tights 120 den. Necklace from Topshop (check out the OOTD-post from yesterday for a closeup)

Now; Time to run of to work!
