I haven’t done an OOTD post in a while and it only makes sense that I would wear the clothes instead of laying them out. Now that the weather is warming up, it’s easier to take a picture outside without layers of jackets and sweaters.
I paired a floral high waisted skirt with a pink sweater. I could have chosen from any of the colors in the skirt to match. It was still a bit chilly so I wore my fleece lined tights paired with black booties. For accessories, I stuck with simple earrings, a longer drop necklace (purple and pink), and purple, pink and gold bangles. I also wore two rings, one of them on my thumb. To pull the look together, my favorite bag made an appearance.
If there is a link, I will list it:
Now onto makeup…
Face: I covered any redness with a green concealer. I’ve learned that if a blemish is raised and red, a green concealer helps to lessen the appearance of the bump and cancel out its redness. Less/no concealer is needed. I applied my liquid foundation and concealer.
Eyes: I always need an eye primer because of my mono-lids or all eye shadows will disappear. I did my eyebrows by mixing the two brown eye shadows in the Urban Decay Basics palette. I used the shimmery cream eye shadow as a base and took a taupe shadow and put it in my crease. I used a cream shadow as a brow bone highlight and white as an inner corner highlight to help open my eyes up a bit.
Liner, Blush and Lips: I line my eyes differently than I used to (dramatic cat eye.) Now I do a simple line and slightly wing it up. I find that this doesn’t close off my eyes or make them look smaller like my previous way of lining used to. I picked a pink blush and applied it to just the apples of my cheeks. For lips, I chose a Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment to keep the makeup look girly and natural.
I hope you enjoyed my first official OOTD/Makeup post. Thank you for reading!
