Hey guys! I am so sorry for completely abandoning my blog. There was so much happening on the personal front so I had to take some time off but I’m back this time for real. Expect some new and exciting blog posts in your inbox every week. Here’s what I wore on my birthday in Goa, I know it’s been almost two months but I want to start off with my birthday look. Better late than never right? The last time I posted my birthday look was in 2017 I believe find that look here.
You guys know I have an immense love for dresses but this time around I took a different route the retro route I might call it. I hurt my ankle before my birthday so I couldn’t scour through the entire mall like I usually do so I had selected a few favorite stores that I’d hit and luckily found my entire ensemble in one store I did go to a few stores before this to no avail. These sequin pants are what caught my attention in the entire HM store since I was looking for a blingy retro set. Then finding a suitable top was definitely a hassle before I zeroed in on this puff sleeve top. Enough ramblings let’s get into how I styled my Birthday Look- Puff Sleeve Top & Sequin Pants!
I styled this entire look around these super gorgeous Champagne Sequin Pants. I fell in love with the fit of this uber comfortable and hugged in all the right places. Since I started lifting heavy I gained some muscles which have altered the way clothes look on me. I am elated I have some muscles on me now… Haha! I paired the pants off with a cute Printed Beige Puff Sleeve Crop Top, this is what added that retro touch to the look.
I also selectively added some accessories like the Long Chain with Pendant, Statement Rings, Charm Bracelet, and Green Chandelier Earrings. For shoes, I opted for a pair of my brand new Chunky Snake Printed Heels which made wearing heels a whole lot easier; thanks to a year-long quarantine who wears uncomfortable heels anymore? Not me nay! The whole look was super comfortable which is important to me as I am so over, looking trendy and uncomfortable.
Heels- BRASH, PAYLESS
MAKEUP & HAIR DETAILS-
Before applying any makeup, I slathered on a ton of skincare. First off, after cleansing my skin I went in with the Niacinamide Serum, Alpha Arbutin Serum, Neutriderm Vitamin E Moisturizer. Well, wearing face masks has blessed me with maskne thank you COVID. After the serums are absorbed into the skin I go in with UV Doux Silicone Sunscreen Gel which completes the skin prep part. before For makeup, I start by spot concealing blemishes, uneven complexion, and under-eye area using the Maybelline Age Rewind Caramel Concealer. I also lightly brighten the center of my face using a lighter shade of the same concealer in Butterscotch. Once the base is all evened out, I apply Rimmel Stay Matte Translucent Powder on the center of my face to avoid any creasing. For the rest of the face and neck, I go with MAC Studio Fix Powder NC41 Foundation. Now that the base is bulletproof, I bronze my face, forehead, nose, and jawline using the Urban Decay Beached Bronzer to sculpt and add back some dimension. I applied a dusty rose blush for a healthy flush on the cheeks, I used Tarte Love Blush. For eyebrows, I went in with ABH Dark Brown Brow Wiz and lightly filled them in to frame my face better. I used Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara to bring my lashes back to life the eyes. For lips, I went with ColourPop Oasis Lipstick which is the most natural pink lipstick and lightly dabbed it onto my lips for a softer look.
