I have decided to participate in my very first actual What I Wore Wednesday, WIWW. The way that WIWW works is that you take a photo of the outfit you are wearing, blog about it, and then link it up with Lindsey over at The Pleated Poppy. This week I’m linking up more of a makeup inspired WIWW, however, there is some fashion going on as well.
So what did I wear? Well lets break it down shall we?
I started off with Mary Kay’s Timewise Primer and then my Mac Studio Foundation in NC 20. I completed the face with some of Benefit’s Hervana blush and a new rice powder that I got.
They eyes were my favorite part for this look. I started out with some Urban Decay Original Eye Primer and then applied Virgin all over the lid and Half-Baked (both from my new Naked Palette) on the outer part of my eyes. I also used virgin as my inner corner highlight and Rimmel’s ScandalEyes in Nude on my inner lower waterline. After completing my brow’s with Benefit’s Gimme Brows in deep I curled my lashes and applied CoverGirl’s New Flamed Out mascara.
Before starting on my makeup I applied an EOS lip balm to prep my lips before applying lipstick. The lipstick I chose for today was Mac’s CB96, which is a coral color that is more orange than pink.
Here is a better look of the makeup in more natural light.
Since fashion is an important part of this particular linkup I’ll tell you about the outfit that I’m wearing. I’m wearing a pair of black jeggings, a yellow and white striped shirt by White Stag (both of these are no longer available). The neckline of the shirt is v’eed and has a bit of rouching on it. I also added a scarf to the outfit. This scarf is not only a brand new one that I just got from Julep, but it’s also my very first scarf!
