OOTD: Sequins and Faux Leather!

A hot pink top covered in different size sequins!!!???? YES. As soon as I saw this sequin top from ASOS I knew I must have it! It is from the ASOS main range but its very over-sized, almost tunic style. The only complaint I have is this top is VERY HEAVY because of the sequins! I love tunics with leggings, and for added texture I paired the top with faux leather leggings from torrid. I finished off the look with statement wedges [that have a bad-ass eyeball print!!!] from Iron Fist and a skinny bow belt from ASOS.

What I’m Wearing: Sequin top- ASOS, Faux Leather Legging- Torrid, Wedges- Iron Fist, Bow Belt- ASOS, Lipstick- Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense in 36, Eye makeup- Sephora Hello Kitty Noir Palette

On my makeup- A simple gold lid with a deep indigo water line and lashes. Finished with my favorite hot pink lipstick. Just a heads up to my fellow makeup and Hello Kitty fanatics: Sephora has their HUGE Hello Kitty Noir eyeshadow and lip palette on sale, at $24 its a steal and the colors are lovely! All the colors I used on this look were from that palette.

Do you guys like the sequin top belted or UN-belted?!

What’s my one essential beauty item?

If I was trapped on an island with only one beauty item it would be mascara. Mascara take your whole face from looking like a hungover hot mess to looking fresh and awake.

Here are my top 5 favorite mascara tips:

1. Don’t Be Afraid to Mix Mascaras

I have short lashes, when going out if I’m not wearing falsies what I do is apply one coat of lengthening mascara, followed by one coat of thickening mascara. If things get clumpy just run a lash comb through your lashes from your inner lid to the ends of your lashes.

2. Try Blue Mascara

I LOVE blue mascara. LOVE. My favorite is DiorShow Unlimited Mascara in Azure Blue. Blue Mascara makes blue eyes bluer, hazel eyes greener and brown eyes bolder! I wear blue mascara when I’m feeling lazy and not in the mood to wear eye shadow or liner. The blue mascara alone will make you look refreshed and put together. If you want a dramatic look wear it with purple eye shadow or navy liner. If your a bit hesitant to try out blue mascara, just apply it at the tips after using your regular black mascara.

3. Use an Eyelash Curler

Curling lashes gives eyes the appearance of being BIGGER. Curl your lashes before you apply mascara and if you want an even more pop curl them again once your mascara is dry. My favroite eye lash curler is the ever popular shu uemura eye lash curler. ** Note: Make sure the mascara’s really dry or else they will stick to your eye lash curler, and that’s not gonna be pretty!

4. Zig-zag the Mascara Wand!

Zig-zagging the wand back and forth during application helps cut down clumps.

5. Do NOT Pump the Wand

Sometimes I see girls pumping their mascara as if it was a bottle of bubbles. Stop. This pumps more air into the tube, which will cause your mascara to dry out sooner than it should.
