Honestly, truly, these pants are my GO TO. I managed to get my hands on them in the Zara sale around christmas time, I even managed to get them in different colours but they honestly look so good with a crop top like I've styled about, but even dressing it up with a white shirt.
You can find joggers like this by simply searching 'side stripe jogger' or click the links below for some I found for you.
As I'm sat here reciting every word to the opening of Shrek, wondering why this talent is going to waste... but here I am, back at it again with the all black outfit but this time perfectly suited to any your Valentines/Galentines/ a usual Tuesday.
Now, this isn't a soppy post and I doubt there will ever be one as I can't bring myself to be that person. I fully appreciate everyone has their way of showing affection, but I'm used to the casual arm around the neck as a token of appreciation when in the public view.
BUT this isn't a post about Valentines or a cute little lovey dovey story... sorry. (you'd think I was single with the amount of bitterness within this post, but life doesn't always give you lemons, and I unfortunately I don't get to see my lemon as often as I hope.. okay back to the outfit).
In my opinion, there is nothing worse than being uncomfortable on a date whether it be the person you are with or the outfit you are in. This is literally the easiest outfit combination, but it will never fail you. I simply paired this floral embroidered top with these coated jeans with an oversized coat which I haven't featured here as I wanted you to see the detail on the top. In hind-sight I would have preferred them to be a little more 'high waist' but they do that job as making your legs look great.
I would suggest sizing down in these, or definitely trying them on if you can, you don't want your sexy lingerie to be revealed to the whole world.
Contouring is something of a phase to some people, but for me I still like to add some shape to my very round face. I have used many different things to try and find the perfect shade for me that suits my pale days and those days I go a little bit OTT with the tanner.
I place the Barry M contour stick on top of my base in the usual areas like cheekbones, forehead and under the chin and blend it out with my new Pur contour brush, it blends everything out so seamlessly and easily it takes me under 10 mins to do my simple makeup.
I was kindly gifted Dr Paw Paw lip balm and 2 brushes from Blank Canvas Cosmetics and I without a doubt don't know how I got through my morning routine without them. I carry this lipbalm with me everywhere, it even saved the end of my nose when I had a cold!
I am all about the minimal and using products for multiple things is right up my street, I use the lightest colour in the contour kit on the E10 brush through my crease and also to place my highlight before I blend it out. I also think its the perfect tool to create a cut crease as the end of the hairs tapers in so you can precisely place the colour into your crease.
I have pretty dark and unruly brows so they need a lot of taming so having a spooly on the end of the E30 is so good (yes, I know what was I doing before?).
I use this in conjunction with either of my brow products whether it be a brow pomade (ABH) or in pencil form from Freedom Makeup.
