Fall Lairing Lookbook

layering3

Fall is hands down my favorite season when it comes to fashion , and I think it  all comes down to layering. It is definitely not easy to make a layered outfit be both stylish as well as flattering , that is a trap that we can fall into . Personally I don`t have the body of a supermodel (or  anywhere near it) and on top of that I am 5 ft 2  therefore I need to be particularly carefull when layering , to make sure my outfit is still flattering as well as that I don`t look drowned by it .In this post I put together 3 outfits very similar to some of my favorite everyday layered outfits I have been wearing . Hopefully you get some inspiration from them.layering

This first look is quite casual , something I would wear to class , but I still feel like it`s very cool.The v-neck under the open check shirt is the piece that still shows your figure underneath ,and the rolled up boyfriend jeans with the trainers give it a cool feel .

This next outfit is based on the slip picking under the oversize sweater , which I have been loving . This particular outfit can go overly sexy and that is why I chose to pair the flat riding boots and the Burberry looking scarf. The fedora and bag really take the outfit to the next level.

To my mothers dismay most of my cold season wardrobe is this exact color pallet , and this outfit is very close to what I usually wear when I don`t have time to really think about it.The black body and coated jeans will show your figure and the coat sweater paired with a leather vest will keep you warm and make you look like you put so much more effort than you actually did..

If you made it to the end , how about leaving me a comment telling me which of the 3 outfits was your favorite or how you like to layer in the fall. I shall love you forever.

Base

As far as my base goes the products I use tend to have a matt finish as well as a higher coverage .

1. Sephora Mineral Powder Brush 45. is my all time favorite foundation brush . It does a great job of buffing in my foundation and really make it look as skin like as possible .

Current Favorites (beauty, fashion, lifestyle)

Hey there long time no speak ,I know but I a back (hopefully) so without further adieu let’s get into my current favorites.

Beauty

In the beauty category I don`t really have that many things , its been quite a weird transitional period when I have`t been reaching for my bold dark lipsticks yet , but my summery dewy/ bronzy look wasn`t approprat  either . What I have been doing for my everyday makeup is a matt face with a bit of contouring and a 90`s Kyle Jenner type look as well as a stronger brow.

1 Rimmel Kate lipstick in 08 Rosette , is a great budget alternative for the 90`s lip that everyone has been loving , the color is not as concelary as what Kylie Jenner usually wears but that suits my complexion a bit better , if I do want a paler looking shade I will mix it with my Givency lipstick in 101 Beige . The formulation of the Rimmel Kate lipsticks is one of my favorites , they are not at all drying on the lips and what I really appreciate is the way these lipsticks wear throughout the day .

2 Bennefit Speed Brow is the untinted version of the Benefit Gimme Brow which you might have heard a loot more about in the blogosphere. The reason why I chose the Speed Brow as oppose to the Gimme Brow is because I have a whole loot of brows , so they don`t really need feeling in or tinting but what they do need is some taming and that is exactly what this product does for me ,it keeps  my brows in place all day so I don`t need to worry about them moving around . What I have to add though ist that this is just a clear brow gel , don`t get me wrong it has been doing its job well but the price tag isn`t worth it , so I don`t think I will be repurchasing, instead I will probably go for a clear mascara or another drugstore option if I can find it.

3 As far as nails go this start of fall but not quite has really put a damper on my excitement for dark nails. So this shade  Ciate in Pillow Fight is a great in between , it is a grey with a purple undertone (the picture doesn`t really pick up the purple) that is still light enough for the sunshine and warmth going on outside.

A few months back I did a post about my makeup table organisation/ makeup storage which was quite well received . The thing is that since then I really haven`t done any cleaning or reorganising there but things kept coming in so it did get to be a bit of a mess . A few days ago I tought enough is enough I need to tide up my drawers and so I did .
