At this point in the year, the weather is pretty much doing whatever the heck it wants. So I figured, why shouldn't we do the same?
Each year we confine ourselves to such strict "rules" when it comes to Fall/Winter beauty and fashion. Wear dark colors. Imitate the foliage. Darken your hair. Darken your nails. Darken your lipstick. (This is where I stop, because my wardrobe is pretty much 90% black anyway!)
This year, I'm ditching the norm and brightening things up a bit. Don't get me wrong-- I love an After School Boy Blazer mani/pedi and a burgundy lip. But this year, I'm opting for some color, one pastel mani and blush pink shadow at a time! Let's not forget the fact that I've worn black hair for the past 4 years. Well, not anymore. Say hello to my Lady Gaga Louis Vuitton brown cognac ;) (Yes I named my hair color don't judge me.)
Check out my I'm-trying-to-pretend-it's-not-20-degrees photos :)
Can't leave you all hanging on the details, though!
-Nails: Turquoise & Caicos - Essie
- Eyes: also lined with Sephora Collection Nano Lipliner (yes, I used lipliner on my eyes as well) in "Candid Candy"
-Hair: Dyed using SheaMoisture's NOURISHING, MOISTURE-RICH HAIR COLOR SYSTEM in "Reddish Brown." My newly natural hair is dark at the ends (remnants from the black rinse) and naturally sandy brown at the roots, so I opted for this color to achieve an "auburn" shade.
I'm looking forward to keeping things colorful for the Fall! Tell us--how are you brightening things up this season?
