Its finally not the Devil’s Playground outside and Im enjoying the slight coolness in the air. I finally got to whip out my silk Liz Claiborne shirt I found while thrifting in Virginia and paired it with my high waisted sailor inspired short shorts! I know that my mom will probably have a bad comment about the length and cut of these shorts and I do love you manman and followed your advice with something loose on top so BE NICE, hahaahh! I recently was on Wardrobe Oxygen’s site and saw she is having a giveaway for a Not Photoshopped T-Shirt and I am DYING to win it. I see SOOOOO much photoshopping in blogs these days and it makes me SO incredibly sad. I live and die by the motto of “To Each His/Her Own” but I believe the purpose of a personal style blog is to showcase our uniqueness and individuality and to get away from all the alterations and enhancements in main stream fashion media. I want young impressionable women to see women who look like them making it in fashion so that they too feel they can do it! I am all about editing for colors and sharpness but to change your face or airbrush your bad skin just seems a tad dishonest to me. Be you and Be proud of that. With all that said, these are my thighs and all their cellulite glory lol. I refuse to airbrush and/or smooth them out so please enjoy the dimples and bumps that come with being a real woman with real curves. Yes I do need to work out more but hey at this point in the game this is what I look like and I dont mind it all that much!!!! Be confident in how you are made because we are all unique and I pray none of us want to be cookie cutter images of what’s currently categorized as “beautiful”!
For this post, I decided to wear super duper minimal makeup. I never ever ever ever EVER wear foundation and am a concealer ONLY girl. For this shoot, I used brown eyeliner on my lower lids only, Maybelline Mega Plush Volum Express Mascara on top and bottom lashes, and some clear lip gloss. I applied my concealer around 8am but didnt shoot till 7pm so I prob should have reapplied but ehhhhhh didnt.lol
I am not really a makeup guru nor do I really like it all that much
but I will never go without my concealer because these hereditary dark undereye circles of mine make me look tired even when well rested and sleepy never looks cute!!!
