I started thinking about the make-up
1°step:I applied a very light and luminous concealer like "Stay don't stray" by Benefit. In Italy you can buy it at Sephora. Now I'm using a sample but it is on my wish list. I have applied both under the eyes and on the lids, because it's also a primer.
2° step: I applied the foundation, not too heavy because I wanted to "play" softly in order to have a very radiant skin. I fixed everything with a touch of mineral powder (my make-up need to stay on for the whole day, because in this period I don't have any extra time to retouch it)
3° step: a delicate peach blush just on the cheek-bones
4° step: I focused a lot on the eyes (ehehe light-blue lips are not the maximum when you have to go to school teaching children theatre...if you want to be taken seriously). I applied a light-blue eyeshadow but in order not to look too back in the 80s I blended it with a light grey
5° step: I traced a thin line of blue-jeans eyeliner
6° step: a lot of black mascara: since it is a very light make-up at least I wanted my lashes to be extra black in order to give depth to my gaze.
7° step: lips. Shiseido, very light and matte peach lipstick. You can find it on one of my previous post (Rouge me!)
Then the outfit: very simple because I wanted to wear my fuchsia flats and my new striped socks.
So: a very simple drainpipes black trousers, a long and stretch shirt with very long sleeves and since here it's still cold I wore also a bat shape black cardigan
In my opinion, for a everyday look, if you feel like adding some strong colors and matches (like here fuchsia flats+stripes socks), go for a total black look, so that you don't look too much as a carnival, and you focus the attention on details, which always make the difference.
