I wore this outfit when attending to one of Radu’s presentations, which I actually regret I couldn’t see it live, since Julieta was really upset then.
I choose an all mint outfit, including the necklace and I’ve decided to add some orange accents, more precisely the bag and the lipstick. Mint and orange are opposite colours, so no wonder they look so good together. Moreover orange lipstick, for some reason, catches a lot of attention. I purchased this lipstick from Farmasi, that has very affordable makeup products, some of them, including their matte lipsticks are very good quality, they are really pigmented. I think orange lips work best with simple matte grey eyeshadow or a dusty blue, but I’ve decided on the first one, since, I’ve already had two really visible colours on me already. And I love love how orange lips work with matte(necessarily matte an same goes for the lipstick) grey eyeshadow! I hardly found one in my pallets, so I will have to purchase some shades of matte grey soon. The one that I’ve used for my makeup is the Garter Belt shade from Too Faced’s Boudoire Eyes Palette. I’m really sorry the makeup is not very visible, since it was getting dark and this is the most we could capture without additional lights. There’s also something that I don’t like in this outfit, it’s the belt! I was in a hurry and I didn’t notice it doesn’t look appropriate for this outfit, it’s too thick, maybe I would replace it with a slimmer and lighter(in colour) one. My hairstyle is maybe a little vintage, as I had it teased quite a lot, but I like how it looks with my outfit and makeup in here. I hope this was inspiring! Have a great weekend, my loves! <3
