my style: fashion, makeup, & decoration

well hello there!

To beef up the clearly lacking “beauty” section of my blog, I’ve decided to give you all an idea of my style. It’s gonna be a mixture of words, links & pictures and by the end, you’ll have quite the resource for inspiration. But then again, you may hate my style. To each their own.

Fashion

My outfit style is usually one extreme or another: 70% of the time I’m in leggings and a sweatshirt or some variation of pure comfort and the other 30% I actually will try and put on jeans and a real top. But even then I mostly only wear things I can be comfortable in.

My favorite places to shop

Goodwill or other second hand stores

Cheap & high-volume stores with trends like…

Boohoo & Missguided & Forever21 & Romwe

My favorite TRENDS

Trends I love right now...

Fishnets

Chokers

Small hoops

Everyday rings

Over-the-knee boots

Leggings, for all occasions

Sneakers… with everything

The barely-there bra look

High-waisted jeans

Gold, gold, GOLD

Vintage anything

Suede & leather

Jean jackets

Bodysuits

Makeup & Hair

I have 3 variations of how I do my makeup: I don’t wear anything/nearly nothing, I wear a thin layer of skin makeup, blush, and eyebrow pencil + mascara and light eyeshadow, OR I go all-out and do some contouring, full foundation, drawing on some eyebrows, bangin’ eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner and lipstick.

But most of the time I don’t feel like taking too much time out of my day to do a full face of makeup. I usually live in the world of a light layer.

SOME COOL tutorials

Even though I never go this all-out, partly because Adore Delano is a drag queen (one of my favorites) and they’re in a world of their own for being extra, I love this makeup tutorial. Maybe not the green lipstick, though…

My everyday look usually consists of slapping on whatever I can, 10 minutes before I leave but this video is what I aspire to.

Decoration

I’m into the bohemian look mixed with a LOT of photos and light, warm colors. Also PLANTS & CANDLES! Both make me feel… calm.

Bottom line: my style is a HOT mess. But I’m pretty much always comfortable and confident, and that’s how it should be.

Have a great rest of your day,
