The Outfit | Twenty One

Shirt: Forever21 (men)
Culottes: Forever21
Brogues: Pennys (Primark)

So it would appear Forever21 projectile vomited on me, this was not purposely planned.
Anyway, I feel awfully like a 'grown up' in this outfit. It may not be to everyone's taste, but I personally think androgynous looks can do no wrong. This can completely be made more feminine by pairing it with some heels and teaming the shirt with a bralette peaking through underneath. Buuut I decided to go full on boy, because I can.

The (kind of) Daily Face.

Alright so firstly I will address that fact that I am no make up artist, in any sense of the word, but I do quite regularly paint my face with pretty stuff in an attempt to convey some kind of life into my 'lecture at 9am' face. 
Rimmel exaggerate lip liner, Barry M Brow Wow, Natural collection liquid eyeliner, Sleek contour kit, Collection Lasting Perfection concealer, Bourjous Volume Clubbing (ultra black) mascara, Bourjois BB bronzing cream, Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker lipstick.

When I say this is my daily routine, I mean generally 3-4 days a week I will look like this and the rest I will look like gollum. 
In light of all this I have compiled together all of the products I use for this look (listed above) and surmised my morning routine into a glamorous time frame, talking you briefly through each step towards my look. I'm quite a firm believer in natural beauty and like to use make up to enhance features, opposed to concealing and changing them so I don't use a great amount of products. 

 7:12am: I like to keep things pretty simple and that starts with my base. I don't wear foundation, so I will begin by simply concealing my under-eyes and blemishes with my collection concealer, I then take my bourjois bronzing cream, which is amazing for a natural glow, and buff it into the standard contouring areas using a damp beauty blender. 
7:20am: I will then move onto eyes and create a subtle wing, I understand that not everyone has time for this but practice makes perfect and after many years I have this shit down and can do it in under five minutes, so don't give up! When this is done I will add some mascara and fill in my eyebrows using my barry m eyebrow pencil. 
7:30am Usually at this point I am in a mad scramble to get out the door and catch my train so I will throw some highlighter onto my cheekbones and over my eyebrow, quickly line my lips, and put on my lipstick en route to the train station. 

This post is a little different to pretty much all of my others, I thought I would step out of my comfort zone anyhoo and give it a go.. don't be afraid to leave your thoughts below!
