Spring OOTD

This winter has been crazy long, so it has finally just started to feel like spring. In celebration I’ve been rocking a bright lip or bright clothes. Today I wore a bright pink top with floral cut outs, perfect for spring.

Basically everything I’m wearing is from Forever 21 plus, except for my new jacket (Joe Fresh).

I LOVE pairing simple tops with a bold necklace, lately I’ve been loving this chain one from Forever 21

The first prom makeup and hair tutorial is a natural smokey eye.

Now before I do anything I would like to give a HUGE THANK YOU to my model who happens to be my little sister, Heather, if you want to know more about her or want to follow her instagram the link will be at the end.

The foundation shown in this picture does have SPF but it is low so it’ll still wash you out but not as much as a higher SPF

Spring Trend #3

Happy Monday my little peeps (I feel like I should have a nickname for all of you, help me decide one?), I am coming to an end of my spring trends…but there may or may not be spring trends for fashion, you’ll have to follow me and my other social media accounts to see. But honestly it’ll probably be more spring/summer trends.

Anyways this is a trend that I’m actually in love with, the orange lip. I know it is a little bold and I haven’t found the guts to wear this look out yet, but I love how it looks on everyone and how bright it can be. If you’re like me I would recommend just trying out a bright lip colour, I know I’ll be purchasing one soon.

 

So let’s get started:

main pic This is all the products I used on ma face for this look.

 

I did my normal foundation rountie, and I did fill in my brows with my Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Caramel very lighty to make it look as natural as possible (I did forget to take a picture of them)

 

Next are the eyes (sorry for the lighting):

1.) Conceal your eye as a primer for your base

2.) Apply a shimmery champagne colour, I used a Paint Pot in Bare Study to make your eyeshadow pop

3.) Apply your a shimmery champagne eyeshadow to your lid, I used Sin from Urban Decay

4.) Use a brown liner, and line your outer eye with it to make your lashes appear more thick but not as dramatic as a black liner.

 

Curl and apply your favourite volumizing mascara and your eyes are done!

Next…the lips!

I LOVE the Stila Liquid Lipsticks, this colour dried matte and literary stays ALLLLLLLL day. I didn’t use a lip liner or anything, just applied it to ma lips.

 

And you have finished the look!

I have always loved Demi’s fashion, so I thought it was time I finally do a post about it. Demi has a more grungey look which I think she pulls off perfectly with her coloured hair.
In this look she wears a basic band tee and ties a plaid shirt around her waist. I honestly would wear this look around town without the leather jacket, but she still pulls it off perfectly.
Her pants are a simple black which can be easily found at any clothing store. You could always substitute the plain black pants for black pants with tears in them which would look very cute with the outfit as well.
Finally she ties this outfit with black combat boots and a cute black tote handbag. I picked boots with studs on them because they gave the whole look a little bit of an edge to the simple outfit.
I hope you enjoyed this post, and stay tuned for a Demi Lovato’s makeup tutorial!
