Pringles and polka dots

DSC_0657DSC_0659

Here’s what I wore Tuesday May 5. I really wanted to wear my Pringles T-shirt again and thought it would look cute with my polka dot skirt. I decided to stick to the black and red colour scheme, and I really like how this outfit turned out.

Enjoying dark neutrals

Beige blazer

Here’s what I wore Monday May 4. I wanted to wear this beige blazer (I bought shortly before the lock down happened), because I hadn’t worn it yet, and together came this fun neutral coloured look.

First impressions: e.l.f. 16HR Camo concealer

I don’t think I ever featured the e.l.f. 16HR Camo concealer in any haul, so instead I decided to do this first impressions post about it.

First impressions

I got the shade Fair Rose, which is not the best colour match for my skin, but the shade selection at my local supermarket was very limited, and this shade seemed to be the best choice. Even though the colour is a little light and probably has the wrong undertone, I still think I made it work. The concealer has a large doe foot applicator, which I really enjoy in a concealer; it makes the product quick and easy to apply. The product blended out nicely and I liked the texture of it. It almost sets by itself, so only very little powder is needed (though I’m not wearing powder in the picture). The coverage is good, but it’s not as great as I thought it would be. It’s supposed to be a full coverage concealer, and though it looks very nice in the picture, I do wish that it had a little more coverage. I didn’t get to wear the concealer for 16 hours, but I wore it for 11 hours, and it still looked nice right before I removed it; it hadn’t creased. My feelings about this concealer is pretty much down the middle of the road; I do like it, but I’ve tried concealers that I like more.

Glowy/dewy and light

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I decided to go for quite a glowy/dewy and light look, apart from the bright red lip of course (which was supposed to be matte, it even says so on the actual lipstick, but it’s definitely not).

Black skirt and red tartan tights

Here’s what I wore Friday May 1. I challenged myself to style the black skirt, because I usually find black hard to style without the outfit becoming too black, but then I remembered that I had these red tartan tights that I hadn’t worn yet, and then this outfit came to life.

Brighter than planned

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. The eye make-up turned out a little brighter than what I’d initially planned, but I decided to just roll with it, and I think it’s really pretty.
