Pride Edition : Makeup & OOTD

To celebrate this weeks pride event in Newcastle I thought I would share the look I went for and a few insights on how I celebrated pride with my friends.

Unfortunately I was working during the time the pride festival was on the town moor so I missed on that part but that wasn’t stopping me celebrating on the night so as soon as I got home me and one of my housemates began to get ready to make sure we were ready for when everyone else came back. So we begin the glitter journey to how I achieved my makeup pink look. I’m going to insert some close up pictures and after the details of the products I used and links to where I got the glitter from.

I wanted to go for more of a pink toned look and add a pop of colour in the eyes to match my bodysuit but with a nude lip to balance the whole thing out. Below is all the details on what products I used to achieve this pink look, let me know if you have used any of them and what you think!

OOTD: Simple Night OutΒ 

Sometimes for an night out you just cannot be bothered with all the layers or different elements to an outfit and that’s what I was feeling when I was packing an outfit for a night out at home for a friends birthday.

I ended up choosing this simple poplin white dress with a blue embroidered flowers on the chest paired with a simple pair flatform. I feel like the poplin style of the dress is currently the trend for casual dresses and finding this dress I just knew I had to buy it. I had tried on a few of these types of dresses in Zara but for some reason none of them suited my body type until I found this beauty. Down below is the details of what I’m wearing.

 


Dress – Primark

Shoes – Newlook

Rings – H&M

OOTD : Simple & StylishΒ 

Today’s outfit was something I hadn’t paired together before and I really enjoyed how it came out. Typically my style could be described as simple and plain jane which you’ll probably see with the next outfit blog posts. But sometimes the most simple things look the most well thought out. I try not to think about my body type when styling an outfit, I just go with what I think would be classed as ‘fashionable’ and go from there.

Black Strappy Top – H&M

Grey Tshirt – NewLook

Culottes – H&M

Trainers – Adidas
