I’m a rock n roll girl at heart – always have, always will be. I love the music and I love the style that comes along with it. So this week’s style challenge from Rimmel London, which was to create a rocking look for a Brit Pop concert, was right up my alley.
I was actually inspired by my favorite band of all time, Radiohead. Thom Yorke clearly refuses to play by the rules musically by changing the bands sound with every album. So I am going to break a few fashion rules of my own with this week’s look.
Would you typically wear a floor length gown to a concert? Probably not, but this jersey gown from Felder + Felder is incredibly comfortable and easy to move in, which works well enough for a concert. Not to mention the awesome beaded spikes sewn into the bodice and sleeves.
Now what’s more rock n roll than a leather jacket? A leopard print leather jacket! This ASOS jacket was the perfect carefree addition to my look. I threw on some of my favorite accessories to complete the ensemble, a studded headband and a statement making stone ring.
I had the most fun with my makeup for this look, which really pulled the whole rocker chic vibe together. I blended two Rimmel London Stay Glossy lip shades to create this dark glamour look: Yours Forever and Black Diva. The Yours Forever deep burgundy gloss was the perfect punch of color to tone down the edge on Black Diva.
To get the look, start with one layer of Black Diva and then add two layers of Yours Forever. I then dotted a few drops of Black Diva on top and rubbed my lips together. Obsessed with this color! Super vampy and perfect for an evening concert look.
Since I’m rockin some rock star worthy attire, I decided it was more than okay to go with a dramatic eye as well. I created a smokey eye with Rimmel London’s Glam’Eyes Eyeshadow Quad in Thrill Seeker. I used the deep green color on the lid, highlighted with the yellow tint, and smoked out my eyes with the dark silver shade. I then dotted the lighter silver onto the inner corners of my eyes.
No rock star look is complete without a ton of black liner, so I rimmed my peepers with a thick black kohl pencil. A couple of swipes of Volume Flash Scandal Eyes and I was out the door.
