As a makeup lover, I am always experimenting with new textures and colours. But to accommodate this, I often end up throwing on an all-black/bland outfit to not clash with the look or take away from its spotlight. I’ve recently fallen back in love with fashion and finding unique pieces to brighten up my wardrobe, but with this habit, a lot of these unique/colourful pieces never get their time to shine. I don’t think I’m alone in this, as black outfits are easy to style and just work with everything. So I decided to work a little backwards, and put my outfit together before I sat down to do my makeup and create a look to compliment it, rather than the other way around. And let me tell you, IT WAS SO FUN! Highly recommend reaching for that yellow jumper or pair of purple pant’s and giving this a go.
These beige check print trousers always give me Harry Styles vibes, mostly due to their suit style silhouette, but they also have a pastel blue running through the pattern which happened to match this ultimate grandma knit I found at the op shop. I usually hate this shape of a sweater on me as it can make my shoulders appear broader, but I just couldn’t let it get to me because its such a fun piece to style.

Once upon a time, I went through a phase where I would see any star printed fabric and I HAD to have it! But ultimately, I wanted an excuse to use some old lashes that I glued sequin stars onto. So as this look almost defeats the purpose of this whole idea, the star pattern still coordinates well. Ps. spot the huge star hoops I have on that also match perfectly.

This last look is my FAV! Not only did I match the makeup to the outfit, but I even reached for products I had that were red. It even complimented Pingu’s little nose on my earrings from Mrs C’s. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know about my love-hate relationship with Glisten Cosmetics Wet Liners as the formula is very hit and miss. Luckily this red applies smoother than most as otherwise, these liners would simply fossilize in my makeup collection.
