From what I’ve read, Soho, London, is the place to be if you’re a food and fashion lover. (… *Raises hand.*) The chic district teems with tourists, stylish-looking patrons and media professionals marching to and from the office – and it’s also the destination of my fictional European birthday celebration.
For today’s Rimmel challenge, I’m dressed to the nine’s to celebrate my 27th (which, incidentally, I just did).
I have an odd obsession with this fun-and-flirty fringe skirt. I wear it all the time, and I’ve said this before, but every single time I step out the door in it, I transform into an obnoxious flamenco dancer… These hips don’t lie.
Since it’s a celebration kinda night (read: lots of champagne), I paired it with my most comfortable can-dance-in wedges, a leather Coach penny purse and sequin Rachel Zoe tunic. Even if it’s not your birthday, this type of get-up will bring out your inner shine and make you feel like the most confident girl in the room. And regardless, really, a girl should always reach for sequins.
The icing on the (cup)cake for tonight is my make-up. Treasure Hunt and Timeless Allure are my absolute favorite shades of Stay Glossy – even moreso when they’re worn together.
Since I wanted kissable lips to be the front-and-center of my look, I didn’t OD on dark eyeliner. Instead, I picked up a multi-dimensional eye palette and started with a pretty peach shadow as a base on my eyelids. To contour, I swept a darker mauve color into the crease, and I finished by brushing the softest color in my palette on my brow bones for a highlighting effect. Finally, to give my look a little extra oomph, I layered on the darkest mascara I could find.
Pop, fizz, clink. Ready!
