OOTD: Monochrome & Neon

Tuesday, 22 October 2013

I bought myself a tripod a few months ago (I got this one from Argos) however up until this weekend I'd only used for filming videos for my youtube channel.  I had a bit of time to spare after getting dressed to go shopping on Saturday morning though so I thought I'd get my tripod out and take some proper outfit pictures (rather than just squint mirror shots like usual).  I'm not quite got the hang of outfit posing yet though so apologies for the rather awkward looking pictures I've ended up with....I'll learn to pose properly one day!

Almost everything I'm wearing is from Dorothy Perkins (autumn/winter haul video coming soon!), apart from the New Look necklace.  I went for a bit of a different look than usual with my makeup - dark lips is not something I normally go for but now that we're coming into autumn/winter I thought I'd try experiment a bit more with darker shades (the new autumn/winter makeup bits I've been buying will also be in that haul video).

The lipstick is from Barry M in the shade 156 and was actually bought by accident ages ago - I meant to buy their lipstick that changes colour (Touch of Magic) but picked this one up by mistake instead.  It's actually the first time I've worn it as I had decided it was too dark for me and relegated it to the back of my lipstick collection.  It just goes to show that you should sometimes try things outside your comfort zone.
