OOTD: Pink Slip Dress



I took it back to the nineties with a slip dress accessorized with minimalist strappy sandals. I love how it was elegantly sexy and simple at the same time. 

This dress was a great find for only $13! It's from the collaboration Charli XCX did with Boohoo. It retails for $26 but I have a strong coupon game so I got it for 50% off ;). This whole outfit was a steal, it was a little over $50. Don't you just love a good deal? Keep scrolling for nor W photos and outfit details.

OOTD: Can You Spot Me?



I wore this last Saturday to a friend's baby shower. This skirt has been sitting in my closet for quite awhile. I love it but I was just a little intimidated to wear it. I thought the tulle would be a little "too much". I ended up loving it, the skirt gave the outfit a very whimsical look. Plus, it was nice to take a break from form-fitting silhouettes.

I accessorized with these grey suede heels I got from Boohoo.com. I've been loving Boohoo a lot lately. They have so much cute stuff and they always have sales. The blue clutch finished off the look and added a nice accent to the otherwise monochromatic outfit.

How To Apply Makeup For A Passport Photo

It's Summa-Summatime! Most people choose to travel during the Summer and if you wish to go international, you will need your passport. I got mines renewed not too long ago which was what inspired this post. I'm sure there are women who have the same mentality of looking good on a government-issued ID. My photo came out terrible but my makeup was on point at least!


The makeup for this look was very minimal. Passport guidelines are pretty strict and you want to avoid having your application rejected. I used a build-able foundation and buffed it out with my Real Techniques Buffing Brush and I highlighted with a very gentle hand. I applied loose powder to the areas where I tend to crease and/or get oily like my t-zone and underneath my eyes.

To sculpt my features a bit, I did some negative highlighting. I used my highlight color underneath my eyes, forehead, chin and on the sides of my jaw. when blended out, it gives the appearance of a more sculpted look without the need for contour. This looks mre natural and it is especially great for my fellow deeper-toned ladies.


No contour necessary
Products Used:
MAC Studio Water Weight Foundation NC44
LA Girl HD Concealer "True Beige"
Besame Cosmetics Brightening Powder "French Vanilla"
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush "Exposed"
Laura Geller Gelato Swirl Higlighter "Gilded Honey"
Maybelline Define-A-Brow Brow Pencil "Medium Brown"
Inglot Gel Liner no. 12
Colourpop Cosmetics Lippie Pencil "Tootsi"
Colourpop Cosmetics Matte Liquid Lipstick "Beeper"

Tips:

  • It's best to have a matte face. Avoid very dewy makeup or glittery highlighters. It might relect off the flash and ruin your photo.
  • Keep hair neat and avoid any distracting accessories. I kept my hair tucked behind my ears to avoid it falling into my face. I also recommend wearing solid colors.
  • Unfortunately smiling is not allowed so take a page out of Tyra Banks' book and practice smizing (smiling with your eyes) to perk your face up a little.


Once you receive your passport, why not accessorize with one of these passport holders? They will help keep all your travel documents together and they are super cute too! I got super distracted looking at them while munching on Pressels, I've been hooked ever POPSUGAR sent them to me as part of their #MustHaves Box for June! The siracha definitely gives it a kick, I love a hint of spicy! For more info on the PopSugar box, visit this link: http://link.popsugar.com/u.d?UYGuWkjfNbSt0Nc6P_y1=411

OOTD: Lazy Saturday With Camo

Joggers are for the most part, glorified sweat pants. They are insanely comfortable though. I threw these camo-print ones to get a manicure and decided to dress them up a little at the last minute. A leather jacket and lace-up block heels made this look a bit more polished.
