Purple Rain

Bathing in the purple rain ~
Another smokey eye look because I'm lovin' it! Went for a more glamorous look with Prince going on in my head and BAM purple look it is. I honestly think this is a cool look for a fancy dinner and you could easily tone it done with a lighter pink or nude shade lipstick. For the eyes, it is always easier to put on some concealer on the area you want to put on the glitter eyeshadow to avoid fall out.
I'm taking off for my anniversary trip and my company trip in a few days so this blog will be on a hold again, so please follow me on Instagram @ncavien or like my Facebok page ncavien. I literally made this post just to share some narcissistic photos of this look I really like (perasan case here). Anyway, I hope you're all well, other updates will be up on my Instagram, @ncavien!

Neutral Smokey Eye

It's September! We're 4 months away till the end of 2018 - how crazy is that? I'll be travelling to two different places this month so more travel photos coming your way this month! Yesterday I was playing with makeup (again) because it was a holiday and I wanted to practice on the smokey eye look, a look I don't do often. tried out this neutral smokey eye look and I really liked it! I kept it neutral with the lips to keep the look more muted and not over the type.

An alternative palette that can easily recreate this look is any Naked 2 palette. Also, I couldn't find a link to the shade Tolouse but linked you guys to where you can get the soft matte range online. This is a very simple look but I think its a pretty good look. I used very basic brown shades on my lid and did a dark smokey look on my bottom lid. One tip on trying to perfect the smokey eye is to do layer the dark shades lightly, that way you'll have better control on how it looks and you can stop before the smokey eye gets too intense. Frankly, I really like this look and might wear it more often. More looks to come your way! Till here, I hope you're all well and I can't wait to share my travels with you guys! Nx

Jadon

During the weekends is when I start dressing like I'm 18 again. This is a super street style look with the 90s red tinted sunglasses which are now back in trend again. They are the most impractical sunglasses ever but also one of the coolest looking ones! I bought these doc marts beginning of the year but never really wore them because they made my legs look huge but since my new job, I've managed to tone up a little. Also, I think these boots are best with super short shorts to help lengthen your legs or if you're tall, then you could pull them off with anything.
Top: Basic cropped top, Cotton On
Bottom: Black denim shorts, Topshop
Jacket: Authentic damaged denim jacket, Zara
Shoes: Jadon black polished smooth, Dr Martens
Sunnies: 90s red sunglasses, Taobao

I am absolutely in love with this denim jacket from Zara. It's cropped the right way and just the right oversize style. This one actually reminds me of one Gigi Hadid was photographed in but let's be real, we're no Gigi and this is the best I could pull it off! I'm going to be doing more beauty looks here (hopefully pictorials too) soon so stay tuned for that! Till here, I hope you're all well!
