Wings

No, this isn’t about birds or angels, or whatever other winged creatures there are out there. It’s about eyeliner (sorry for the let-down if you were expecting an animal post, though there was a bat in my bedroom the other day!!).

I’m talking about classic winged eyeliner. So, you probably don’t need me telling you about it, I mean I even referred to it as ‘classic’, but I thought I’d dedicate a post to it since it’s one of my favourite ways to do my eyes.IMG_6111IMG_6122

 

 

It’s simple, it’s sharp; and topped off with the little flick on the end, it manages to draw attention to your eyes and elongate their shape. My favourite liner is the Maybelline Hypersharp liner in ‘blackest black’. It’s like a liquid pencil that glides on really easily and has a ultra fine tip for the most precise finish.

Just wing it:) (Sorry I’m well aware of how cheesy that sounds.)

Unexpected

Unexpected 4So everyone who knows me knows that I’m not a t-shirt and jeans girl. I’m just not. Do I think it can look good? Definitely; some of the most fashionable people in the industry pull it off effortlessly day after day – it has a very model-off-duty vibe to it. But it’s just not my style.

    Unexpected 3 Unexpected 2 Unexpected 1So this outfit probably comes as a surprise to some. It’s a simple white graphic tee with jeans; ripped jeans no less. And can I just say that the jeans are amazing. From Abercrombie and Fitch, they really hug you in all the right places. The t-shirt is Billabong, from the boys section; taking the phrase “borrowed from the boys” a little too literally if you ask me. But hey, I was coerced into (to put it nicely) buying it at Wavehouse Sentosa before I could go on the FlowBarrel, so I figured I might as well put it to good use.

I still needed some ‘me’ in the outfit, so I chose olive green military inspired suede wedges, a bright orange Tory Burch handbag, a thin blue and gold Marc Jacobs bangle and a swipe of dark pink lip gloss. Just the right amount of femininity to counter the guyishness of the rest of the outfit and make it look thought-out instead of carelessly thrown on. It was refreshing switching up my style like that.

Try it sometime;)

I think we’ve all wanted to be like Jane, swinging on vines through the jungle; a Tarzan by our side if we’re lucky. Well, the closest I’m going to get is this dress; and that’s still quite a stretch of my imagination.IMG_8459

I bought this dress a few years ago, but I keep coming back to it. I love its jungly leaf print that somehow manages to be both attention-catching and subtle at the same time, if that makes any sense. Strapless, with its high-low hemline and sheer skirt (black slip attached under), this is the perfect day-to-night dress. Keep it simple for daytime with flat sandals and minimal accessories. For the night, pair it with strappy gold heels and a chunky arm cuff. I think above the elbow works especially well with this dress. Top it off with a small ring stack or stud earrings if you want.

Makeup-wise, bronze goes best. I usually line my eyes with a combination of soft brown and coppery-gold crayon liners and slick on some rose-hued or bronzy lip gloss. Slightly undone hair finishes the look.

Optional last step? Pretend you’re hiking through the Amazon:)
