Today I had a business lunch so I chose a smart - office style - outfit. I mixed black with brown, something that used to be amongst the “fashion faux pas”! To be honest I always liked wearing black with brown. I think that rules are meant to be broken and if you have some sense of style, you immediately know if something looks good or bad. Of course there are people that have an amazing sense of what goes with what, like Patricia Field for example. The outfits in SATC or in “The Devil wears Prada” were out of this world. She manages to combine clothes and accessories in ways I could never imagine!
As far as my make up is concerned, I kept it rather simple. And here is a tip for a quick, morning look: you apply a neutral e/s on the lid (it can be light brown, taupe, beige, something not very dark or glittery) and with a black or brown eyeliner pencil you draw outwards a small line at the outer part of the lash line (hope I’m making sense here!). It doesn’t have to be neat, because you will then take a small smudge brush and smudge that line so it will blend with the other color (blend outwards). Add some mascara and you’re done! This way the eyes are much more defined without wearing too much make up. If you have any questions about this or any other make up related subject, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Well, here’s today’s outfit: (note: I ironed my skirt before wearing it, but you know how linen gets after you ...just wear it!)
