A Winter’s Casual outfit!

IMG_3771

This is my go-to outfit for an errands or a normal day in winter. It is just so comfortable and I feel like I can complete all activities in this – you never know when you’re going to have to run for the bus!

Jumper: NewLook $25 and the softest thing I have ever felt. I am so happy in it partly because it reminds me of my pyjamas and also because it is the perfect length. The arm sleeves are cropped meaning you don’t get too hot(a problem I often run into) and it goes down past my waist. I love the colours in it and I like the fact that the it goes with the blue jeans without being too matchy-matchy.

Jeans: okay can we have a couple of minutes to talk about these jeans. Holy moly, never have I found such comfortable jeans in my whole life. I recently wore these on a plane trip – that’s how you know they are really comfy. They are Levis so you do pay the price but I would do it again and again. They give the illusion they are skinny jeans but they don’t fit like that and overall make me want to never take them off. Now that I have expressed my underlying love for these jeans I think we can move on.

Converse: Standard white converse. No mess no fuss just a staple in my cupboard. However, last year I wore mine without socks every time and they started to develop a smell but worry less I picked up a new pair just in time for winter this year. Love them.

Accessories: watch & sunglasses. 2 things I can’t go anywhere without.

I love this outfit so much that I think I need a second pair of everything so I can wear it even when one set is in the wash. Alrighty that’s it. I hope you are all well on whatever corner of the globe you are on.

Good night from rainy Australia.

Day 5 – 3 Step Makeup Routine

Image

Hiiiiya! Alright now I don’t want this to sound narcissistic but if I had to choose something positive about my body(#bodyconfidence etc etc) it would be my skin. Let me preface this by saying I wasn’t born with good skin, infact I was born with terrible acne(well not born with it haha can you imagine a baby with acne – I mean I developed it as a teen). But when I was about 13/14 I went on Roaccutane. A drug that dries out your skin to remove pimples. I was only on it for 6 months but it totally did the trick.

So as a result of this I don’t wear foundation, weird for a girl I know. But I just don’t see the need for it and I HATE the feel of it. This does make my makeup routine very minimal and on a day to day basis I am fresh faced. But when I do go out a prefer a statement lip. I find that a statement lip can give the illusion that you are wearing tones of makeup when you’re not? Anyone else feel this? Just me? ok…

Anyway on this particular night I was off to Jason Derulo(don’t judge me, concert was fab). But my makeup routine consisted of 3 steps.

So this was me before makeup – excuse the serious face. I think I was thinking about Jason Derulo naked or something…

Step 1: Concealer

I like to use this Rimmel Match Perfection in the colour soft beige. It has good coverage and lasts the whole night – even without a primer. I only put this on the dark circles around my eyes to even out the colour. Depending on my time I will use my ring finger or the Napoleon Foundation brush. I also enjoy the way it comes out – a squeezy tube, no mess, no fuss.

Step 2: MascaraImage

Maybelline The Falsies, need I say anymore? It’s raved about by bloggers so you know the drill. Big lashes in little time. I love it on my top lashes but I find that sometimes I can tend to over apply on my lower lashes and they start to look like spider legs.But it is waterproof and doesn’t smudge at all! All you need in a mascara.

Step 3: Lips

Lips are my fave fave part. I like to use double lip colours to find a colour that suits me just right. Today I used a Burts Bees Lip Shimmer and Lancome Juicy Tube. My trick to big lips lasting for a night is to blot. I apply the colour then press my lips down on a tissue then apply again. A life saving tip I learnt from my grandma that will stop you from going to apply lipstick even half hour.

Okay, give me a couple of minutes to talk about this Burts Bees product guys. Image

It’s incredible. It smells amazing – like mint and makes me want to use it as a breath freshener(which I don’t, don’t worry). But to way is applies is even more amazing. It’s like you can instantly feel it softening your lips whilst simultaneously giving you a¬†gorgeous
colour. My lips get very dry no matter what lipstick I use so this has been a lifesaver. It has a slight shimmer to it but nothing too noticeable. Now it is quite a dark red so I paired it with this Lancome pink lip gloss to make it more of a softer red.

Image

This lipgloss it sticky so a nightmare when you have your hair down(am I right girls??) but apart from that it is a lovely pink colour which matches perfectly with my red lips. A combo I LOVE!

So here is the completed look. Easy, long lasting & comfortable!

I hope you enjoyed that, lord knows I need to improve on blog pictures but I have a maths exam tomorrow so my priorities are there! I know I did no other eye makeup but I haven’t quite nailed that aspect of my routine. Give me time! Below is a picture of all products used. I hope you all have/had a great day.
