Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.

 

“The only way to atone for being occasionally a little over-dressed is by being always absolutely over-educated.” 
― Oscar Wilde

It's that time of year when things start to get busy. Exams are just around the corner, summer collections are coming out, and Christmas will arrive faster than we are prepared for. This outfit is a little more 'overdressed' than the things I will surely be seen in as exams get closer. But for the first bare legs of the spring I think it was just fine.

I was really excited for these pastel pink shoes when I ordered them but didn't think about how similar coloured the legs going into them would be (especially legs freshly out of winter)! I still like them cause they remind me of the cool style I've admired on Victoria from Inthefrow (the latest blogger obsession in the Shop Style Conquer household). Maybe they'll look less like floating white platforms when I have a bit of summer colour on my legs?

10 Of Our Favourite Beauty Tricks/Hacks

 

"The makeup is simply an extension of the personality and colors, clothing, makeup all express something."
- Gene Simmons

Sometimes makeup and getting ready can be hard. So we love learning any little tips and tricks to make it easier or smarter! Inspired by the new life changing Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush, here are some "beauty hacks" (well mostly beauty, but hey fashion is part of the overall look) that we find useful.


1. Use a business card to stop mascara getting on your eyelids

2. The end of a bobby pin (the rounded bit) is a great dotting tool for doing polka dot nail art.


3. Wet your eyeshadow brush to apply your eyeshadow colour more intensely


4. Exfoliate your lips with a toothbrush before applying lipstick for a smoother finish


5. Lipsticks can double up as a great blush!

6. Also don't forget your bronzer can make a great eyeshadow



7. Keep an old mascara wand to use as a spoolie to brush your eyebrows with


8. If you're in a hurry a  hair straightener can get out wrinkles (just be careful of the type of fabric!)


9. Applying a white shadow/eye shadow base under colours will make them brighter and make them pop.

10. If you have any eye shadow drop down from where it's meant to be, an easy (and tidier) way to get rid of it is to use a piece of tape.
