FOTD + OOTD: Shifting

I've had this Rajo Laurel x Plains & Prints shift dress for quite a long while now, but this is the first time I'm showing it here. Odd, because I wear it all the time! At least thrice a month, methinks. It's the perfect frock for meetings, but it's also something you can dress up for cocktails or even something casual.

Plains & Prints dress/ Ferretti wedges/ Nine West Bag/ Pinkbox earrings/ Avon ring

Yeah I know I can't pose to save my life, but I hope you get the idea. :) I see many, many happy years with this particular piece.

Anyway, here's the makeup I wore with it. I thought I'd feature this lovely eyeshadow palette from VMV Hypoallergenics called Morning After - it's the perfect duo for a light smoky eye that can be worn during the day.

Two eyeshadows blended, Umberocious, Psyche

The face base -

Face: Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation, Cinema Secrets concealer, Bobbi Brown mineral foundation

Cheeks: Benefit Hervana Blush

Eyeshadows: MAC Prep + Prime Eye Base, gray eyeshadow from the In2It Pink Alert eyeshadow palette as the gradient base, Psyche (dusky violet eyeshadow from the VMV palette on top)

Gray on the lids

Blended the violet on top to get a gradient effect

Cleaned version with a brown bone highlighter to blur the edges

Eye definition: Benefit Brow Zings, Majolica Majorca Automatic Eyeliner, Avon SuperMagnify Mascara

Lips: Avon Simply Pretty Valentine Brights ColorBliss Lipstick in Fresh Rose

And that's it! Hope you enjoy the look.

PS - If you're thinking, "Wow she looks old!" all I can say is please, let's move on with our lives. :) That's just how I look and I rather quite like it.
