How I wear velvet

How I wear velvet

Velvet is everywhere and it has been for a while. From skirts, shirts, dresses and shoes: if you can paste a piece of velvet touch fabric onto it, or use it to make it, it seems someone is doing it. And it’s not just black velvet either. Oh no, it has started to come out in many different colors. From pink, bottle green to blue: I have a few items that I already had in my wardrobe that I thought I would style up. Because velvet, being such a rich fabric, can be difficult to style up. Here’s how I would wear velvet clothing items.

I haven’t worn nail polish in months, which is why I have decided to whip out a blog post that has been pending for a while. Usually, I gather 6 pictures of recent manicures and then put them together in a post. Since it’s been a while since I last wore polish and I haven’t had any interest in wearing any for some time now, I decided to just cut to the chase and do my, for now, last instanail blog post.

Essence Metal Chrome blush

Essence Metal Chrome blush

Shimmer and shine is the IT makeup aspect of the season. Be it in a lip color (shimmery lip gloss is back in vogue people!), an eyeshadow or in a blush: if it’s got a metallic shine it is all the rage right now. And I like a good deal of shine. In an eyeshadow, but not so much on my cheeks if it isn’t a highlight. Still, I was curious when I spotted these new Metal Chrome blushes by Essence. So I decided to pick one up and try it out.

Shop my Stash | November 2017

It’s December which means it’s time to show you the makeup I wore in the past month. Last month was all about high end face products, affordable eyeshadow, berry lips and I have been dabbling into primers and setting sprays. Especially those last two steps in my makeup routine are very new to me and are areas which I have just started to explore in the world of makeup. Here’s the makeup I wore in the month of November.

Primark Beauty Blender dupes

Primark Beauty Blender dupes

When it comes to applying foundation, I am one who prefers a brush over all methods of application. They are easy to handle, apply the right amount and are easy to clean. But some foundations simply work better when applied with a sponge. If the foundation is richer, thicker and creamier, then a wet sponge may be the best way to apply the foundation. And while the beauty blender is still everyone’s go to, it is rather expensive and so many affordable dupes have been making the rounds. When I found this affordable €2 pack at Primark, I knew I had to try it.  primark beauty blender dupe review makeup sponge
