Monochrome inspired make-up: a theme that was quite abstract, but I did know what I wanted to do. I wanted black, white, red, and tight lines. Just black and white seemed a bit boring, hence the added colour.
For this week I also decided to skip the Sunday Solutions and I will explain that too in this post.
I have many pictures for you, so keep on reading!
So let me start with a quick explanation about the Sal's Sunday Solution post. I decided to skip this week because of several reasons. Don't worry though: the post will not disappear! This week was really hectic because I had to work a few days with no pause inbetween. Also, the long and hot days here caused me to be exhausted. I just didn't have the energy to compose a new post. I'm a perfectionist and spend at least 2 hours per post, so you can imagine why I didn't have the energy. PLUS I decided to do the Sunday Solutions every other Sunday, to keep my blog variated. Lately I felt like I missed diversity on my blog, so that's the decision I took :) Hope you understand! SO: the post isn't disappearing! But instead of 4 times a month, it's here twice a month :)
OKAY soooooo about this post. This week's theme for the weekly make-up tag is Monochrome. I didn't really know how to get to work with this theme, but an image immediately popped up and that's what I worked out! I went for two thick winged liners, a black and a white one, I went for extra highlighter and for a deep red lipstick. In real life it's a lot deeper than on pictures. It's more like a bloody red. Okay, that didn't sound well..
Anyyyway, check out how the other ladies did the tag by clicking here and enjoy!
PS: I'm growing out my brows (yes, again) so excuse the messy look.
PS2: Please check out the name of the lipstick I used. You'll love it. I love it. Let's love it together.

Now on to the maquillage!
That's actually a pretty wearable look, right? Right?? I have to be honest: even though I have a superduper amazing new camera, the pictures still don't do this look any justice (maybe it's the flash?). I was staring at myself the whole time with this make-up, because it looked DOPE! (Can I still say that? Or is that soooo last decade? I don't know, please tell me if you do. I don't want to look un-cool..)
What do you think of this look?
Would you wear this look on a casual day?
