New Outfits & Makeup Looks

.

I got a few outfits from Charlotte Russe when I was in Vegas, and I also got a few outfits from Forever21 (online), and since many of you have asked for more fashion related posts, I figured id post some of my haul. Forever21 had a sale on this long black sleeveless cardigan for only $5.99! And I LOVE IT! That was probably the best bargain ever! I got a turquoise ruffle dress from Forever21 also, I used an old H&M belt I had to dress it up a bit. The short/tube top set (they are attached together like one whole piece) I got at Charlotte-Russe which also comes with a faux alligator skin belt. It's a bit too revealing for my taste (as in too much skin at one time) since I don't usually wear shorts (because I desperately need a tan LOL), so I most likely would wear it with a cardigan or the vest like shown below to tone it down, but it's super cute.

It's wrinkly because it was packaged tight when it was delivered to me. :(




The black sleeveless cardigan I got for only $5.99! over a solid heather gray shirt and some leggings:


Jumper from Charlotte-Russe:




Here is a look with the "Classic Dame" mattene lipstick I got at the CCO, the look below this I used "Full on Lust" lipglass. The eye makeup is the same for BOTH looks, since I was just messing with the lippies. :)















What I used:

[Face]

- Givenchy Matte Primer
- MAC NC30 Concealer
- Buff'd Mineral Foundation in Chamois & Almond
- MAC Pro Setting Powder

[Cheeks]
- MAC "Emote" blush for contouring
- MAC Mineral Blush in "Nuance"
- MAC "Refined" MSF (from Sugarsweet collection)

[Eyebrows]
- Anastasia Brow Whiz Eye Pencil in "Medium Ash"

[Eyes]
- MAC Shadestick in "Lemon Chiffon" on lid
- MAC "Goldmine" e/s on lid
- Milani "Java Bean", MAC e/s in "Mulch" & Milani "Chocolate" blended together on outer-V and contour
- MAC "Shale" e/s on contour
- MAC "Ricepaper" as highlight on brow bone
- MAC Fluidline in "Blacktrack"
- Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara
- Ardell #120 Demi Wispy Eyelashes
- Urban Decay e/l in "Zero" smudged on lower lashline

[Lips]
- (For look #1), "Classic Dame" mattene lipstick
- (For look #2), "MAC "Beurre" cremestick lipliner, MAC "Snob" lipstick, and "Full on Lust" lipglass

Helloooooo Vanessa!! :D

I've been a reader of your blog for about 2 months now, so I'm fairly new. I really really enjoy your blog and reading yours and other beauty bloggers' blog make me really want to start a blog of my own, but I know that I won't have time to maintain it, nor will I have much knowledge to impart upon the beauty world. =/ besides that, I'm still a poor college student who is trying to balance her budget between food, makeup, and clothes! haha :P

Anyway, I absolutely love your new outfits! the way you dressed up that turquoise dress is very clever, mostly because i am also in love with your white belt! :D and you look gorgeous in the jumper! i think since you have the height (and the legsss) you should show them off, esp since summer is only a couple of months away! As for the make up look, I prefer it with the pink gloss over the red one. hehe.

p.s. Has anyone told you that you have the MOST ADORABLE smile ever?! cute little teeth! :)

Ethereal Prey said...

belts totally pull an outfit together, i really dig the dress and belt. though i've wondered about jumpers, when u go to the bathroom do you have to take the whole thing off? LOL!

Vanessa said...

Haha OMG yes! That's what I used to hate about overalls and stuff when I was growing up, having to take off the ENTIRE thing to take a piss! So annoying, I am gonna have to cut a hole in the crotch and put a zipper or some snap buttons for easier access, LOL!

MsBenz said...

KiLLaCaM said...

Ahleessa said...

kae said...

i'm in love with that jumper! its so cute! but tube tops never look good on me.. like my boobs arent proportionate to my body after having the babies! lol.

i wanted to ask you about the crest white stirps..after ur done with the whole box, how often do u use another strip just to maintain? i read your post about it, but i dont think you wrote anything about maintaining it and stuff. just wondring cuz i wanted to pick some up at walmart soon. thanks!

Cupcake Couture said...

Ohhhh, I really like this entry!! I love the outfits in this post, makes me want to go shopping.. haha.. I really like the turquoise dress too, good idea with the belt, def makes me cuter! I especially like your makeup in this post, you look adorable! =)

Vanessa said...

Hi Kae, the instructions on the box say to use it everyday for about 2 weeks (14 days) but I don't recommend it because your teeth will get super sensitive so I say use it every other or every 2 or 3 days :)

Miss Katin said...

I really love the stuff you got!! =] I esp love the cardigan.. going to f21 website asap... hahaha!=]

Syn@3sTh3sI@ said...
