Here’s what I wore Thursday September 18. I’ve mentioned before how I’m not a huge fan of all black outfits, but I love this (almost) all black one. Maybe because of the white accents and the bordeaux red lips. Or maybe because of the trousers which I bought in England to wear for choir performances and didn’t really thought I would wear after getting back home, but think is lovely now. I love suits and suit inspired looks, so I’m sure I’ll get more use out of them.

I’ve talked about how much I love the Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate lipsticks a million times before, so it was about time that I got my hands on one of the matte versions. I decided to get this dark nude shade, because I don’t really have anything like it, and I thought it was a very pretty colour. I don’t find the finish of this lipstick completely matte, but it’s definitely not shiny either. For a matte lipstick this one doesn’t dry out the lips and all in all I like it so far. I’ll post a picture of me wearing this lipstick another time.
Here’s what I wore Wednesday September 17. I’m wearing two of my favourite pieces from the past few months; my Monki bomber cardigan/jacket and my The Fabulous Creepers creepers:) They are such casual and comfortable pieces and I’ve loved wearing them both.

Here’s an even better picture of how I did my hair the day I wore this outfit. I’ve done the top part (twisting the sides) a million times before (e.g. here), but it was the first time (and only time so far) that I twisted my ponytail as well. I thinks it looks great, so I’m sure I’ll do again another time.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I thought soft grey eyes and red lips were a perfect match for this outfit. And you can see the hair that I did a bit better in this picture, but more about that tomorrow.

Here’s what I wore Tuesday September 16. I love the simplicity and the colour combination of this outfit. And I think my hair turned out quite nice as well, but I’ll show you a close-up of that another time.

When I saw this Rimmel Moisture Renew Universal Transparent Lipliner in a jaw full of sale items, I had to try it. As the name of it suggests you can use it with any lip colour, and it’ll like any other lipliner keep your lipstick from bleeding or feathering. I have already used it quite a few times, and so far I like it.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. As you can see I did a golden eye make-up that day which I don’t do very often, but I thought it went very well with the outfit. On my lips I wore one of my favourite lipglosses (if not my favourite), the Maybelline Colorsensational Shine Gloss in 360 Stellar Berry. That colour is just gorgeous.

Here’s what I wore Monday September 15. This dress is just the perfect everyday dress if you like to wear something very casual and comfortable, but still wants to look feminine. I love it! And the colour of the dress is particularly perfect for autumn and winter time.

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I’m wearing my Rimmel Apocalips in the colour 501 Stellar and I haven’t worn it very much even though I really like it, but I’m actually wearing again today. To keep the lips as the main focus, I’m wearing a neutral, light eye make-up.
