Today’s FAB Makeup Looks <3

Makeup, clothes, bags and SHOES what can I say I am a madly and deeply IN LOVE with fashion. Fashion now falls under a lot of things, that incudes FOOD the way furnish your house and even the books you read (if you know me back in high school…then you know I was a BOOK WARM). Yes I said it books, books come in and go out of fashion but literature remains. Just like in fashion, fashion might come and go but style is forever! ❤

For the upcoming blog posts (the next 3 or 4) will be mostly about makeup. I will be showing and talking about how I applied the makeup and review some of them. Will let me tell you a little secret I LOVE MAKEUP as much as SHOES! That coming me from me is a HUGE thing. So promise me that is will be between you and I. :p

Anyway let me go to the good stuff, in the post I will be talking about TWO makeup styles. One was I was wearing yesterday but recreated the look today. The other one is a FUN SPRING look that I hope you guys would enjoy. First I will show you what I was wearing yesterday then I will go more about the make. So stay tuned and keep on reading!

Jeans, something I don’t do often

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Mustered top: H&M
  • Brown skull scarf: Artalkw (check it out Instagram)
  • Jeans: American Eagle
  • Shoes: Style Boutique (a store based in Kuwait)

I wore this look yesterday for university. I need something fast because I had to go to school early to print out some stuff. I knew that I wanted to wear my FABULOUS shoes that Style Boutique gave me. So I stayed most of the morning wonder what to wear with it, and then I told myself you can’t go wrong with jeans. I hope I was right, because I liked to believe I was. To check out my blog post about Style Boutique Grand Opening of their new branch press here.

 

Smokey Grey Eyes

Now let me go on and tell you how I applied my makeup for that day. Below you will see a close-up of the makeup.

Morning dark makeup

I usally don’t wear dark eye makup in the day, especially in the mornings. However, that day I was inspired by dark grey and I really wanted to use my Too Faced pallet “Matte Eye Shadow collection.

For applying my makeup I used my PERFECTLY PLUSH BRUSH KIT Essentia that I got from MAC’s limited edition collection. I call these my personal brushes and I don’t use them on anyone but myslf.

Early Winter Looks

These looks are from the past two weeks when winter was just about to start in Kuwait. I have been quite busy that I didn’t have much time to blog. It broke my heart to be away for this for such a long time :(. The GOOD news is, I just created a vlog channel on Youtube called LillyDoll. Right now I’ve only posted one video to create awareness for the month of Movemeber. To check out the video press this link “A Movember to Remember”. So I was busy getting things done for my vlog and trying to think what are the things that I would like to show and talk about. I hope that you enjoy my video and my upcoming videos :D.

Let me stop the rumbling! Now that I know what I want to do, I got everything sorted out, okay not everything but most things. So me let start telling you that so much will be coming your way! What I have to do is juggle school, my blog, vlog and my writings that I want to publish. I’ll pray that all goes well.

This year winter in Kuwait was a bit delayed than most years. The weather still didn’t get cold enough for us to wear “REAL” winter clothes. In the other hand it was cold enough to wear my favourite boots and pleather leggings :D. It did rain the past few days, but I didn’t go out so I sadly don’t have looks for those days :(. Anyway let me go on and show you my looks and please tell me which ones you liked BEST!

The Reception/Dinner Look

Last month my aunt had a reception, a small dinner party for her daughters because they have just came back from travel. It wasn’t a very formal thing, yet not casual at all. I wanted to dress in an elegant way but still have a trendy side to it. Although I don’t see myself as a person that takes risks in my clothes when I am invited for any kind of event, I like to stay classy. Then it came to this event, I wanted to try something new, thank to my mum that motivated me to wear this!

Wearing a puffy skirt with a lace top! One of my favorite looks ❤

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Green lace top: Zara
  • Navy-blue puffy skirt: H&M
  • Black lace tights: Mark and Spencer
  • Heels: YSL
  • Dangle crystal earrings: Swarovski
  • Small green bag: Gucci

 

The Formal-Casual Look

This is what you can call a Fall Look more than a Winter Look that was from a month ago. It was just a normal day of going to school with a lovely fall breeze in the air. I chose to keep my make-up looking very natural and so my hair <3. What do you think about my natural hair?? This was even the first day I wore my DKNY high-tops. They kind of did hurt my feet a first, but now that I got use to them, they are comfy as EVER. This is even the first time that I wore my Celine sunglasses, even though my mum got them for me last summer. I just didn’t know what to wear them with, so I guess there is a first time for everything :P. This look has so many first times. I did enjoy this look it was fun mixing so many styles together. I think it came out pretty nice, don’t you?

I don’t wear much stripped clothes, but this was FUN! 😀

In this picture I am wearing:

  • White and Navy-blue strip blazer: Zara
  • Purple under top: River Island
  • Dark jeans: H&M
  • Olive-green high-tops: DKNY
  • Gold necklace: Forever21
  • Burgundy bag: LV
  • Sunglass: Celine

 

The Rushed Casual Look

This was a fun day, not only was it the lunch H&M line Maison Martin Margiela but I even spent some quality time with my brother <3. We woke up at 6am to get ready to go to the closet mall to our house so we can go and check out H&M. First we went and had a quick breakfast at Starbucks, then we went running to H&M to wait in line. Luckily we were the 3rd group to enter the store :D. It was kind of crazy with us running around try to see what we liked, what we didn’t and what we wanted to get. I ended buying a few things from the collection, and YES I will post them SOON! It was such a LONG yet such a FUN day.

Running to H&M for their new line lunch 😀

In this picture I am wearing:

  •  Blue-floral scarf: American Eagle
  • Jeans top: Zara
  • Dark jeans: Dorothy Perkins
  • High-top sneakers: Nike
  • Beige bag: LV
  • Sunglass: Chanel

 

The BBQ Look

On the same day that I went to H&M for their lunch of their new collection, that night I was invited to my cousin’s place for a BBQ. It was a gathering of just us the girl cousins, it was a sweet gathering. So because I was dying to get these half-boots I HAD to wear them on that DAY. These half-boots are so comfortable, that I can walk for hours in them without complaining. That night it was quite cold and because we were setting outside we all stared rapping ourselves in blankets that my cousin was handing out. I somewhat felt like a Rocker, maybe it was because I was wearing black all over with a ripped jeans jacket :p.

BBQ with my cousins, what a lovely time ❤

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Black and gold skull scarf: Alexander McQueen
  • Light jeans jacket: New Look
  • Black top: Zara
  • Black leggings: Zara
  • Half-boots: H&M from their Maison Martin Margiela
  • Gold and white bracelets: Chanel

 

The Rocker-Chic Look

This is the 2nd time that I wore these half boots, I was going to university. These pants where new and I wanted to try them out. I loved how they looked and how they slimed down my legs! I felt so alive and fresh that day. The mixing of grey, black a sliver gave me such great empowerment and confidence I didn’t know I had. My makeup was left very simple that day, with just a bit of foundation, mascara, blush and a nude lip (no lipstick). Not only was this a day look that I left my makeup very simple, but I thought that the outfit was loud enough

I felt such a REBAL! I usually don’t dress like this :p

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Black blazer: Zara
  • Grey top: Mark and Spencer
  • Black and silver lace printed pants: Mark and Spencer
  • Sunglass: Chanel
  • Half-boots: H&M from their Maison Martin Margiela
  • Burgundy bag: LV
  • Long sliver key-necklace: Tiffany
  • Gold and white bracelets: Chanel

 

The Morning-Pleather Look

It became somewhat of a tradition that my mum, cousin and I go out for breakfast every weekend. Sometimes the breakfast would be at our house or we would go out. That day we went out to try a breakfast place called “The Breakfast Club” (I will blog about it soon). Their food was super YUMMY! Yet again these pants where new and I WANTED TO TRY THEM OUT :D! Plus even the shoes where new, one of my favourite aunts bought them for me from Germany. So I was like I should hit to birds with one stone, and I think it came out quite well. What do you think?? 😀

I love pleather! Specially during the winter time ❤

In this picture I am wearing:

  • Black scarf with silver beads: Zara
  • Grey Top: Zara
  • Burgundy pleather pants: H&M
  •  Burgundy bag: LV
  • Black high-tops: Buffala (my aunt got it for me from Germany)
