FOTD: I Wore Brights to Work?

Last week we had a non-school uniform day, yay for working in a school ๐Ÿ™‚ This meant I could basically wear anything I wanted (within reason of course, turning up in a bikini would have been ridiculous and quite chilly!). For me, I prefer wearing skirts. Doing my job wearing a skirt… Not so easy unless it is long and then quite frankly that is a bad idea. So I wore my normal work clothes… Instead, I wore bright eye makeup to work. Yep, for me wearing my work clothes isn’t really constricting, I like smart clothes. Wearing work makeup, really is. I am not a neutral girl. I am all for brights, colours, makeup that makes people stare at your eyes. That is more me.

I didn’t go the whole hog for school, I did a very simple pastel eye with pink in the inside half and then a green/turquoiseย in the outside half. Then when I went out in the evening for a bit of wagamamas and ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ goodness, I took it up a level. That is what I will be showing you. Apologies that the photos are below par, I am finding it so hard to take photos in winter and trying really hard not to lose my blogging love as a result!

I really loved this look. Its very me ๐Ÿ™‚ I also found a way to wear the Candy Yum Yum lipstick. I had tried it as a full on lipstick and found it a little overpowering on my skintone but lightly pressed into the lips it works wonderfully!
I hope you are all getting excited for the holidays now!

    You can definitely do it! Maybe not the first time, maybe not the second but practise makes perfect ๐Ÿ™‚ It took me lots of different products and lots of time to find a liquid eyeliner I'm happy with. If you want an easy way to start you could try the ones that are like felt tips, I found them pretty easy when I was first trying a liquid line ๐Ÿ™‚ good luck! xo

    The first thing I thought when I saw this (especially your lips) was “how yummy this looks!” and then I read that the lipstick's called yum yum.:D Great makeup, really sweet!
