Great matches

Here’s what I wore Wednesday March 25. I wanted to wear this long denim skirt again and thought this stripy jumper and red accessories were great matches.

5 favourites – March

This has been a very strange, very different month. For the whole world sadly. I’ve been working from home for the past 2,5 weeks, and let me tell you, I really miss going to work. I’m a teacher and I love teaching, but virtual teaching is not to be preferred in my opinion. But it’s better than no teaching at all. I haven’t written much about the current situation at all, and I’m not going to, but I have mentioned that I still get properly dressed and do my make-up every day to stay sane. In fact, I’ve actually been very inspired when it comes to outfits and make-up looks, and I have discovered some new favourites in those departments. So here goes; March favourites.

Topshop hoops

Flat hoop earrings: These flat hoops (I guess you can call them that) from Topshop has without a doubt been my most worn earrings this past month. I always love a good hoop, but there’s something I really like about these ones that makes me wear them all the time.

Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation (shade: 100 Warm Ivory): I very rarely find new foundations that I like as much as my favourite Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation, but I think I like this one (also by Maybelline) almost as much as the Fit Me one. It’s the only foundation I’ve been wearing since I did my first impressions one it, and that says a lot.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Lust palette: Another Jeffree Star palette, another winner. It’s really hard to beat the JS eyeshadow formula in my opinion, and purple is my favourite colour (and I’m loving purple eyeshadows at the moment), so this is just what I needed in my eyeshadow palette collection.

MAC Glow Play blush (shade: Grand): This new blush formula from MAC feels like a mix between a powder blush and a cream blush. I’m usually not into cream blushes, but I love this one. The texture, colour, and finish are all stunning.

Luther tv show

Luther (TV series): Now that I’ve had more time on my hands, I’ve also had time to start watching a new TV series, so my boyfriend and I have started watching Luther, and we’re really into it (at least I know I am). We are at season 3 now, and it just gets more and more intense. If you like crime series, this is a good one.

Just as great

Here’s what I wore Tuesday March 24. Orange and turquoise/teal is such a fun colour combo. It makes this casual outfit really stand out in my opinion.

Bleeding heart

Here’s the make-up I wore Friday March 20. I wanted to create another look with the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Lust palette, and I wanted to incorporate the red shade, Bleeding Heart. I was interested in seeing how it would work with the purple shades, and I think it worked quite well. This sure is a fun eye look.

Working from home

Here’s what I wore Thursday March 19. It had been a while since the last time I wore this green jumpsuit, and I thought it would be perfect for a comfortable, but still put-together working-from-home outfit.
