Daily Looks: Casual Black

If there is one thing you should know about me it’s that I love nothing more than black. I was a little emo kid and while ¬†I have grown up and my fashion taste has become a little more sophisticated, I still haven’t lost my emo kid heart.

I dress in all black. I love skulls and slightly strange things. That’s just how this is. So I’ve dreamed of having the perfect black lipstick for a long time. I wanted something matte, something that I would never have to worry about getting everywhere, something that was black enough. I had finally found it in Kat Von D’ Everlasting Liquid Lipstick and I wanted it so, so badly. However, it was constantly sold out.

This year, I had been spoiled by my manager at work and was given the lipstick! So I’ve created this casual, comfortable look mainly based around this heavenly lipstick. Black lipstick is something that can seem a little hard to pull off but I think that you can really dress it up or down depending on what you wear it with.

For the clothes, I went with a pair of leggings from Forever21 that have a leather look to them, as well as a grey cardigan from Forever21 (because it’s cold and nothing makes me happier than a cozy cardigan). To top it all off, I wore my favourite shirt that says The Future is Female (it makes me feel like a badass and it’s true).

On my face, you can clearly tell that I have an obsession with Kat Von D. I will be making a post on my favourite pieces from her collection later.

As a quick note about my hair, I used a few products that I am obsessed with. The Ouai products are all I’ve ever wanted and the Wave Spray plus the Texturizing Spray is hair heaven!

It’s simple, it’s casual, it’s cool, and it makes me feel like a badass. All I want from a day ot day look.

Rosy Summer Makeup

I am a makeup lover. I adore putting makeup on and dressing up and pampering myself. It makes me feel like I’ve taken care of myself. In the summer, I like to wear make up that’s light and feels natural and isn’t going to be sweat off the minute that I step outside. This is a look that I’ve been wearing most days.

  1. Naked 3 Palette: I blend the colour ‘nooner‘ into my crease and my lower lash line with ‘strange‘ in my inner corners.
  2. Too Faced Primed and Poreless: this is the best translucent powder that I’ve used and in the summer, I’ll use this on its own without heavy foundation. It helps keep me shine free but doesn’t feel like I have a ton of gunk on my face.
  3. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner: the best liquid eyeliner ever. No question. Nothing is better than this. End of story.
  4. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara: the best mascara ever. No questions. Nothing is better than this. End of story.
  5. MAC Blush in Warm Soul: it really is what the name says…warm. It’s a blush that’s not too pink but it’s not too dark and brown. It just adds a warm glow.
  6. Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipstick in Seduction: a beautiful nude matte lip

It’s warm. It’s rosy. It’s the perfect touch of colour to a summer day.
