Blue and Black

Today is a beautiful day! I felt inspired to actually get up and do my makeup. I usually do a simple "No Make Up" look every day but today I felt like doing something different. But before I get into my makeup look. I want to give you the details of my OOTD. Today I am wearing all neutral toned colors. My black harem pants are from Urban Outfitters. I purchased these pants at the beginning of spring. They were on sale for $19.99. I am not sure of the original price but who can argue with $20 pants. The shirt is from Forever 21. It is a basic high low cream and blue tank. It's always good to have a few simple but dressy tank tops in your wardrobe. They are super easy to style and they will go with just about anything. A blazer and jeans, a maxi skirt, denim shorts. You get the point. My sandals are super ancient. They are from DSW. Today I broke them! Which just gives me a reason to go shopping later on today :)

Now on to makeup and hair. In the last photo, you get an up close glimpse of my hair. Now today was a pretty bad hair day for me. But this photo captures my hair color very well. Last night, I did a bantu knot out on freshly washed and blow dried hair. This was my first attempt with my Mohawk. I did not like it at all this morning to say the least. But I will give you all more details on hair care and hair styles soon for my Mohawk.

My make up for the day is very simple and subtle. I did a subtle smoky eye using the Natural palette by NYX. For my face I used MAC pro long wear concealer in shade NW30. I did not use any foundation or tinted moisturizer. In the spring and summer months I find that my skin is very oily which makes me feel yucky with foundation on my skin. I used a bronzer and highlighter for my cheek bones and high points under my brow. The highlighter I used is by Lush. It is the "Feeling Younger" skin tint. I love this stuff! It is so beautiful and natural looking. I suggest everyone go out and buy one! For my bronzer I used MAC's refined golden bronzing powder. This bronzer has a little sparkle to it. Which I love obviously. I hope this helps you all and answers a few questions that you all may have. I will do a makeup tutorial soon.
Stay tuned loves!
