Inspired By Burberry (and a rare OOTD)


DSC00277 copy

As the title states.

I wasn’t sure what to wear for today. I went to the YouTube homepage, intending to play some music, and one of the Burberry makeup tutorials was on my recommended list. I’ve always loved how the Burberry models look so strong and earthy and grounded and effortless and natural.


Swoon. Image from here.

I got most of the inspiration from their festival look video. Experimented with a couple of things.

I tried applying bronzer on the eyes as an eyeshadow at first, but was dumb and applied my Urban Decay one, which was too orangey so I did end up using the eyeshadows.

What did work though, was applying my highlighter (Benefit High Beam) before applying my foundation. I think that tip came from the Burberry Spring Summer 2015 video. It means that the highlight ends up being very subtle, as you slowly build up the layers of the face.


Photo taken as I was out with friends. Do you see how beautifully the highlight shows up on my cheekbones in natural light?

    I love the outfit! I rarely wear dresses because I think it doesn’t look great on my big physique. I hope you’ll post more OOTDs! 🙂

  2. I’m getting myself a Benefit High Beam. It’s amazing!!
