Neutrals, My Old Friend5:13 PM
Before I get into everything can I just say the weather continues to be ridiculous? It was 85F yesterday. There was snow on the ground the day before. Today was in the 70s and there is supposed to be a sleety mess by tomorrow again. God, what makest thou so bored? D:
Aaaaaaaanyway, onto the post!
One fall-back look that I still always always go to is a neutral coppery-brown eye. I know I've promoted this a billion times but it is still my all-time favorite eye shadow set: Revlon Colorstay 12-Hour Eyeshadow Quad in Copper Spice.
As many times as I have attempted to dupe the fabulously perfect copper color (third down) from a higher-end brand, I cannot, and frankly I'm not sure I should considering this one works so well. The pigmentation and wear is fantastic. The colors are just perfect. I can't help it, but I'm always disappointed when I try new browns (or coppers, tins, reds, etc) because they just never live up to this one!
Here's the lowdown for the look. Copper spice (pretty much all 4 colors used) for the eyeshadow, shisem falsies, a bit of white shadow for tear ducts. Just clean and simple.
By the way, that fabulous zipper-flower pin was a DIY from one of my besties, Hannah. I pretty much flipped out when I got it in the mail. How amazing is that?!
A look at the whole outfit. Old Navy sweater, F21 thermal, Sirens skinnies, VanEli leopard heels. Is everyone loving my bathroom toilet shots? Har har...
Oh, also on a random fashion tangent, I used to hate wearing black. Barely had anything in the color and barely wore things I did have in black. I used to think it made my face look dark and unhappy or something. Maybe it is because I've grown and my style has changed, or maybe it is because my hair and skin are lighter than they used to be, but I really love black now. BRING ON THE GOTH AND ROCK 'N ROLL, BABY!! Or, you know, ironic and soft and pretty. :)
On that note, here's another black-on-black, rock 'n roll, soft, neutral look from a recent shoot from the ridiculously awesome photographer, Steve Gibson. Gotta love wet-look leggings!
That's all I got for now. Hope you guys have a great weekend with lots of awesome, soft, pretty, rock 'n roll moments. And tell me in the comments if there is a color you hesitate to wear, and why.
