Overalls and rainbows

Here’s what I wore Monday February 1. I really felt like wearing a pair of overalls, because I hadn’t worn a pair in so long, and I went with my purple corduroy ones and styled them with some rainbow goodness. A perfect comfy, colourful Monday outfit.

’70s and ’80s

Here’s what I wore Friday January 29. I guess I was influenced by both the ’70s and the ’80s when putting together this look, and it turned out to be such a fun yet comfortable outfit.

H&M haul: Lee collab and more

It’s time for a collective H&M haul. It consists of a bit of everything.

Let’s start with the pieces I purchased from the Lee collaboration. I puchased the ’90s wide ultra high waist jeans, the lilac T-shirt, the white T-shirt, and the denim bucket hat. These items are my kind of basics.

I’ve also purchased another pair of jeans. These are a pair of mom jeans with the cutest Mickey Mouse print on them.

I’m really longing for spring and summer, but I’ve only purchased a few spring/summer pieces so far. One of the more summery pieces that I’ve bought is this brown tank top. I puchased a dark yellow tank top and a lilac tank top from H&M last year, and I loved wearing those throughout spring and summer, so I wanted to add this brown one to my spring/summer wardrobe this year.

I’ve purchased two pairs of shoes. I’ve been wanting a pair of white heeled sandals since last summer, and I love this pair from H&M. I found the beige boots in the sale, and even though they’re very simple, they’re very flattering.

Besides the Lee denim bucket hat, I’ve also bought these three hats. I love the black pork pie hat; it’s just such a fun style. The beige wide brim hat is fun too, and the white bucket hat is super cute and summery.

Last, but not least, I got some more pastel coloured socks, because you can never have too many of those:)

Unusual lip

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. This is a very unusual lip colour for me to wear, but I don’t hate it. However, I don’t like the lip as much as I like the eye look. I think the berry tones are so pretty.

Black suit

Here’s what I wore Thursday January 28. It’s not often that I wear this much black, but I love a suit inspired look, and I think this one is quite fun with the printed shirt with the sweater vest on top.

Love them together

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I love a purple eye look, and I love a red lip, and I love them together.

Purple and red

Here’s what I wore Wednesday January 27. I’ve been wanting to style a purple and red outfit for quite a while, and I finally had all the pieces to put together this look. It might be a lot to some, but I absolutely love it!

First impressions: Essence Camouflage+ Healthy Glow concealer

About 1,5 years ago I did a first impressions post on the Essence Camouflage+ matte concealer, and I wasn’t a fan of that one. However, I thought I would try out the Healthy Glow version to see if I liked it better, so here are my first impressions.

I’m wearing primer and foundation underneath, and then applied the concealer, because that’s how I would wear concealer. It is not the best concealer for covering up spots. It has a quite liquidy texture, so it blends away very quickly when you use to cover up spots, so I won’t use it for that purpose again. It looks nice underneath the eyes though; it feels hydrating and I would say that it has medium coverage. I did set my undereyes with powder, because I always do that, and the concealer looks smooth in the undereye area. I wore the concealer for about 8 hours and my undereyes still looked nice and smooth at the end of the day. This is not my favourite concealer ever, and I would not recommend it for spot concealing, but it’s a nice, lightweight undereye concealer, and it’s very affordable too.

Dark fuchsia and green

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. Dark fuchsia and green is such a pretty colour combo that I really should wear more often.
