Frozen Inspired Holiday Look

This week I thought I’d share a holiday look I wore to my Christmas party. I was inspired by Disney’s movie Frozen, and thought this would make a fun holiday look.

Since I didn’t have to go outside for my Christmas party, I chose a dress that kind of reminded me of Elsa’s dress. This navy blue dress has a lovely high-low skirt and silver thread woven into the top. I got this dress from Modcloth early in the spring this year. My snowflake and pearl earrings were bought last year from Claire’s.

For my makeup I wanted to do a more natural, yet glowing look. I used my Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in light sheer and Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in 125 (very fair) as a base for my makeup. I used my Nars Multiple in Copacabana as a highlighter on my cheekbones, and Tarte blush in Thankful for a glowy finish. On my eyes I used Benefit Stay Don’t Stray eye primer, then dusted Stila Kitten eyeshadow over my lid. I used the second darkest brown from my E.L.F butternut eyeshadow quad to add some definition to my crease. I then lined my eyes with my Stila Smudge Stick Eyeliner in Lionfish, and finished the eyes with black Perversion mascara from Urban Decay. I then rounded off the look with my NYX butter gloss in Strawberry Parfait (BLG01), then set the makeup with Urban Decay De-Slick makeup setting spray.

To do my hair I used Tressemé heat tamer spray and curled it using my Remington T-studio curling wand, curling the lower sections of my hair in the same direction.

I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season!

Halloween OOTD

Halloween has come and gone this year. I thought I’d do a bit of a different post this week and show you what I wore for my Halloween party last week, and at school for actual Halloween.

My husband and I decided to do a couple’s costume this year and go as the Disney couple from Tangled. I think we make a pretty good Rapunzel and Flynn. We even had Pascal with us.

For actual Halloween I went a bit more subtle with my costume. I had 2 classes in the late afternoon/evening so I still wanted to dress up, but not have my costume get in my way during class. I also needed something warmer than my Rapunzel costume since I take the bus & train to school. My Ravenclaw inspired outfit was the perfect subtle costume for Halloween at Uni.

I hope you all had a safe and happy Halloween!
