Hot lips.


dress & belt: thrifted, shoes: IF mall

I don't wear a lot of make-up, but having a dramatic lip with minimal make-up is what I just love. 

In November, I did "no make-up November" and it has changed my make-up routine since. I use to wear a pound of eyeshadow and always had cat-eyeliner. I hated walking out of the house without it. I felt as though I really needed it. I couldn't even fathom not wearing it. Going out in public without it was just barbaric. 

But after not wearing make-up for a month and trying to go back to my make-up routine before was not happening. All I wear now is mascara. I don't even know how to put eyeliner on anymore. I put it on once or twice after November and I had no idea what I was doing--so I just decided to not even try. I go through faces of eye shadow. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't. Right now is a don't. 

I love the feeling of having a fresh face. 

That was a lot of rambling.

  2. You look so cute with the red lip/ clean face combination! You look like a young Rita Hayworth. And those shoes are adorable! I love high-heeled Mary-Janes but it can be hard to find ones that aren't costume-y-- yours are so pretty!

  6. Ouu red lipstick and shoes together, thats a great balance, love it!

    I totally feel ya on the makeup - I've NEVER been a big makeup wearer but i went through a phase of light foundation, light blush, etc. etc. And it just became MEH. So I try really hard to just not wear anything but a little bit of coverup where needed and mascara. You look lovely!

  10. Same here! Anything except mascara is a bit of a nuisance to me lately. Also, I'm loving the matching lips and shoes!
