The Colour That Matters

I have been shopping & looking at trends in the stores here in HongKong and the colour that stands out the most is -Mustard Yellow. I decided to get my hands on this dress from Zara. I wasn't quite sure how it would look until I tried in on , but I am so glad I did. The length, material and style of the dress fits perfect! The colour is especially my favourite its earthy & perfect for a summer day!

I love the fact that mustard yellow is not as bright as a plain yellow dress, The dress is casual and the material is the same off a tee, but the cut out sleeves add so much edge and can be worn for many occasions, I paired this dress with my black H&M heels and my Michael Kors bag. I added black accessories to pair up with this dress reminding me off a NY cab.

Purchase your first mustard yellow piece and try incorporating it in your wardrobe,

Make up Look - Blended Crease Eyes + Dark Lips

Before starting a step-by-step guide for this make-up look, This one needs a little bit of patience and practise. For this eye make-up I played with only two shades but it took a while to blend back & forth to get the desired results. 

Eyes- To start of with the eyes , I first used my Maybelline concealer as a base and then applied  a nude colour eyeshadow all over the eyes to set it, I then went it with the browns, I took an angular brush from faces (Its the best one to apply eyeshadow on the crease.) Dipped the brush in a brown eyeshadow and went back and forth on the crease. I smoked out the lower lash line with a dark brown shade as well. 

To complete the look I applied my maybelline hyper gloss liquid liner, Rimmel Glam eyes mascara and Glowmiere Beauty lashes 

Face - I mixed bt tow favourite foundations - Bourjois 123 perfect foundation in the shade -n53 
& MAC face & body foundation in - c3

Lips - Maybeliner - Lip Liner (hollywood)

I skipped blush for this look since I wanted the main focus to be on the eyes & lips but I did apply 2 coats of MAC highlighter (Soft & gentle)
