So I’m finally posting this look…

So I’m back with details of one of the looks I posted in my “a little extra…” post.
This look was worn on my first night out in DC. Had a great time and I reaaaaally liked the look I chose to wear.

Details:

Face
No idea was foundation this is, which sucks cause I like to know for my own reference so I can look back on pictures to see how the foundation looks on my skin. Sometimes I just wanna see, don’t judge. Thank you.

I don’t know what blush or contour this is either, that’s what I get for having too many. Looks like it may be Mac ‘ripe for love’ (LE) or Mac ‘my paradise’ (LE)
Any peachy blush will get you a similar effect

Eyes
What’s most important
MUFE 70 (crease)
MUFE 18 (lid)
Sephora flashy liner purple (lower lash line)
MUFE 92 (lower lash line)
Mac motif (inner corner)
I didn’t deepen the outer V or crease because I wanted a more soft look
Lid liner is just a black gel liner, I think. It could be liquid
No lashes, just loads of mascary (yes, this is what I call mascara, come at me)

Lips
Mac Peach stock lipstick
Mac peach stock lip glass

I think that’s it. Any questions, just let me know, although I may not have the answer. Sorrys.

that’s two weeks in a row…

2 weekends in a row…I’m on a roll!

So last week a new friend and I ventured on down to U Street in DC to see what Indulj was lookin’ like.

We had a pretty good time. The music was good, catfish nuggets were incredible, and the scene wasnt too bad (although I would’ve liked to see a few more men ;))

Those catfish nuggets alone will bring me back. And soon.

So if you’re in the DMV area, check it out!

Anywho…on to this FOTN/OOTN

I’ll have a post coming soon on this whole moving fiasco. Long story, short…I still ain’t got my shit. So I’ve had to buy some new clothes to go out in. Bummer.

I found this really cute hi-low dress at Macy’s on sale. I’m not really good at describing clothes but I’ll do my best. Hopefully the picture will explain it better. So the bottom half has a wrap feel too it, but it’s stitched. In the front there’s almost like a slit, but that’s the wrap feel to it. Basically if I stuck my leg out too far, all my thigh meat would be showing. So it’s got a little sex appeal to it. Heeeeeeeyyyy….

I wore some Steve Madden wedge sandals, I don’t think they’re pictured, but they were comfy and worn the entire night.

The bright orange clutch is easily my fav accessory. I would base an entire outfit around this clutch. It’s Jessica Simpson, purchased from Nordstrom Rack.

On to the makeup

no wasted makeup round these parts…(FOTN/OOTN)

hey y’all! how’s life? I haven’t been up to much, just working, trying to find my way around Chicago, and visiting a lounge, occasionally πŸ˜‰

this is also my first outfit post. I’m such a simpleton soooo you won’t see any extragent outfits round here. but here’s the look I wore last night…I got some pretty good feedback on my instagram page (btw my username is: thecorporatebeauty) and decided to share it in a blog post.

I almost didn’t go out. I was just about finished with my makeup and got a text from a friend saying she kinda didn’t wanna go…so I was gonna go by myself, my makeup was done! LOL! but I ended up getting her out and we had a great time!
let me know what you think!
