OOTD: Teal Appeal

I've bought this dress at Garage right in early summer, and didn't got the chance to wear it until just now. I thought I don't have a good enough reason to wear it.. I mean, I thought I could only wear it to some special occasions or like for going out or something special like that, since it is so pretty! You know what I mean?.. But this is a pretty common mistake I make a lot of the times.. That I think "this outfit is too pretty to wear it out just on a regular day".. And then it ends up laying in my closet all the season and I don't wear it. So I've decided to stop with that and start wearing pretty clothes I have, just because! :) No one said dressing up without a reason is bad ;)

So to make this pretty dress look a little less fancy, I paired it with my flat sandals and a little braided bangs :) The look reminded me of like a Greek goddess or something, so to complete it, I wore my gold bracelets, which complemented a lot the teal color of the dress!
I matched my eye makeup to the color of the dress, with a little bit of darker brown on the crease (which unintentionally matched my nail as well :P).

OOTD: Been There Done That / Neon Green

LOVE neons for this summer! I made these shorts myself out of a pair of leggings I had, and I decided to pair them with this neon green shirt that says "Been There Done That" :) I matched some neon green details to it, like the earrings and the neon liner on my eyes. If I would have applied the green liner by itself, it wouldn't be as noticeable, so I lined my eyes with a black liner first, and then applied the green one on top :) And in case you where wondering, it's not a real liner, it's actually a neon green eyeshadow (from the Sleek Makeup Acid palette), applied with a wet eyeliner brush :)

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Review, Photos and Swatches

I've read a lot about this lip butter by Revlon, but never really thought of buying it.. It looked like a lip balm to me with a little bit of color.. It still does, even after I purchased it. But I do love it! :)
I wanted to get some treat at the drugstore, and these pop out to me from the background shelve at the store. First, I thought I'm going to take an peachy orange one, but I immediately stopped myself.. Because we all know I have this orange-peachy-coral problem in my life.. And I think, for now, I have enough orange. coral and peach lipsticks and lipglosses, so I went on a more daily color. Just a natural, bit tinted tone, to wear everyday. Something that will go well with everything. So I chose this color, called "Crème Brulee", and I have to say I do like it a lot! It's soft, not sticky, a bit pearly.. It is pretty sheer, but I guess it supposed to be like that, since it's a lip BUTTER and not a lipSTICK. Also, this is the first color I'm trying from this "collection", so I don't really know, maybe it's just this color that is sheer.
In conclusion, I would say, if you want a pretty lip balm-like lipstick, that would enhance the natural color of your lips, give it a little sheen, and have a cute packaging, for a good price - this one is for you!

OOTD: Dark Ballerina

I came up with this outfit while finding this cute skirt in my closet and realizing I haven't worn it in like two years (and actually wore it only once or twice), and I wanted to keep it very clean and classic, so I paired it with a simple black tank top and black and white wedges. To not leave the top looking too boring, I wore my long mirror necklace. The whole look reminded me of a dark ballerina, so I completed it with a bun on my hair! :) Loved how it turned out! Very clean and simple, but yet elegant and very comfortable!
I lined my eyes with a very black dramatic winged liner for a cat eye effect, a little bit of bronzer, and nude lips (to not draw the attention from the eyes) :).
