The weather has been getting a lot colder here lately so I thought I'd post up a weather-appropriate look to go with the season. I've been rushing a little more in the mornings lately to apply my makeup so I've been sticking with an easy and flattering neutral look most days. I've mentioned this before, but an easy way to mix up a neutral look is to have sort of an "accent" color.
Here are the tools I used for this look:
* NYX single eyeshadows in Flamingo (one of my FAVS) and Jazzy Bronze
* Random lilac eyeliner from Korea
* Everyday Minerals Blush in Walkee Talkee
* MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Petticoat
* Dior Addicr Ultra Gloss in 227 Chiffon Beige
The rest of the face is my usual. MAC fluidline in blacktrack, Covergirl Lash Exact wp mascara, Lancome photogenic concealer in Camee. I used the lavendar pencil on just my lower lashline which gives it a twist (although it doesn't show well in my crappy yellow bathroom lighting.)
I absolutely love this blush combo. Walkee Talkee is great as an everyday blush color and Petticoat adds a perfect amount of glow. Oh, and look at my cute DSK Bubbi Moonlight Heart necklace! It's so delicate and matches with this sweet look. Wearing DSK pearls & bows earrings in the previous pic too. :)
My hair has been getting soooooo long. I don't remember if this pic was before or after I got my haircut but no worries, I just got more layers. My goal is to have crazy long Japanese-gyaru style hair with tons of layers so I look like a living doll. XD
To get these waves I sleep on my hair wet from a shower the night before, then I twist my hair in two buns while I get ready for the day and take it down before I leave. Easy peasy.
My outfit is fairly standard work-wear for me. I really love this dress from Forever 21. I can't get enough of chunky-knit details! Leggings of course, since it's been so cold.

People who say you shouldn't match your makeup to your clothes are silly! :P
Oh, PS, I'm going to have another giveaway soon since I hit 500 blog followers! Thank you so much, I am totally humbled that anyone would follow me. I hid my followers list for the longest time because I didn't think people would follow! Haha. Well, I am very honored and I want to give back for that. <3
