I love these posts because they’re just so lazy – there’s no deep, emotional inspiration behind them, there’s just . . . a mirror.
So I lied on the title; the first story is from Saturday, because Sunday was just terrible weather and who wants to dress nicely to go out in the rain? Unless it’s some kind of fun or romantic adventure, then I’m all for it. The motive, however, was sunbathing.
(The image that flashed for a measly second due to my terrible video editing skills is this one, by the way)
But moving on . . .
My first outfit of the day was acid wash dungarees and a black crop top because . . . some days let loose your inner Grunge Queen. Actually, let’s be honest, my inner Grunge Queen was released when I used my shoelaces as a belt. I regret nothing.
My makeup was a lot more dewy than usual, but I had an attempt at contouring. (And, yes, my eyeliner fucked up. But you know what – puppies die. And when you put that into perspective I think we can allow my eyeliner mistakes)
Okay, that was Saturday . . . this is today!
Okay, so today’s outfit was more vintage-ish; I just love the jacket so much I had to try it on and then promptly remove it because it’s fucking 24 degrees. (The jacket and nose ring are actually things I bought from my last mini haul, which is here) I’ve been loving my little lace crop top underneath other tops (as I told y’all here) and tying laces around my jeans as my waist is too small for belts. I’m not even joking. I paired it with my boyfriend jeans that I absolutely hated until last week when I realised . . . they’re beautiful and I can recreate things like this with them:
My makeup was pretty much the same as usual, except I managed to actually do my eyebrows – and, dare I say, properly – and I used the beautiful thing that is brown eyeliner.
Brown eyeliner doesn’t actually photograph very well, but I find it really lightens your eyes (mine are brown and dark) and it suits my skin tone a lot more than black. My eyebrows both shocked and encouraged me; as someone who never touches her eyebrows (they’re thick and black. Two things that make filling them in absolutely impossible) it went quite well and I’m actually going to do a How-To post for any other strugglers out there.
Anyways, my little makeup adventures in the recent warm weather have led me to realise that I need to get hold of some items ASAP.
- NYX Make-Up Setting Spray Dewy Finish – £8
- Avon Make-Up Setting Spray (normal finish) – £2.50
- I need make-up setting sprays because it’s getting too hot for heavy powders (in the sun, you just don’t want to have to cake your face) and the heat makes make-up a little slippery.
Sleek Highlight and Contour Kit – £9.99
Anyways, this was a really quick post to just share some outfits and faces I been trying out; my Snapchat stories may feature more in posts to come (they’re, um . . . they’re really something) and I hope you enjoyed reading.
