It doesn’t matter how old I get, birthday’s still excite me. Maybe not for the same reasons they did when I was younger. The pizza, presents, and parties don’t get me going nearly as much as the birthday outfit does. Seriously, I will have no idea what I am doing for my birthday but I always know what I am wearing.
For Rimmel London’s styling challenge #6, my task was to create an outfit fit for a birthday celebration in the Soho neighborhood in London. I was also challenged to create a lip color to match using Rimmel London Stay Glossy lip glosses.
For this look I had to break out my Calvin Klein sequin maxi skirt. There aren’t many occasions in life where a sequin maxi skirt is necessary but a birthday … Oh yes! I kept it simple on the top with a sheer-ish black tank top from Bess. The outfit needed something else but nothing too extreme (I wouldn’t dare detract from my sequin skirt) – so I threw on my new Eddie Borgo earrings and a great pair of boots.
For my lips, the obvious choice would be to go for something bold but I wanted to mix it up by creating a nude lip and a smokey eye. I love this look because it’s low maintenance. The lip color needs zero upkeep as you party the night away and with the eyes – the messier the better. De-shelved sexy is my Theysken’s Theory low cowboy boots.
On my lips: Like I said, I wanted to go nude so I used three Stay Glossy shades to get the perfect naked lips. I used Non-Stop Glamour, Diamond Dust, and So Fabulous. This trio created the most awesome natural lip ever. One layer of each is all you need.
On my face: Again with the standard “Lauren face routine” – it’s the perfect palette for any beauty look … I used Laura Mercier concealer, Armani foundation, Chanel pressed powder, Nars Oasis blush, and Rimmel London natural bronzer in Sun Glow.
On my eyes: I smoked my eyes out with multiple shades from Urban Decay’s Naked palette, kohl liner from Rimmel London, and mascara from Rimmel London and Christian Dior
