What Did You Wear Today? (Read 1st post!/updated)

    Well, what did you wear today?

    This thread is for users to post pictures of outfits they've worn. We require a picture of the outfit and then a list of where you got the items. Prices are optional. The photograph(s) should be of you or taken by you.

    This thread is a picture only thread. So, no picture, no posting. That means no chat. Use the thanks button if you want to show apprication. Use the Chatwalk thread if you need to discuss anything. *Please do not use the thread to promote your blog. Do not sign off posts with your blog.*
    Non picture posts will be deleated and repeat offenders will required to wear ankle warmers in public - or banned for a period of time.

    Enjoy. :)

    The goal is just to see how everyone puts together their outfits, and may act as inspiration for other users. I really encourage the lads to take part in this! A lot of the male threads around are looking for tips on everyday dressing.

    We also welcome those cosmetics obsessives! Along with a photo, please list all products and a bit of detail on how to apply.

    This isn't going to be a "know your F&A" thread, we really want it to be a helpful Fashion and Appearance thread, and to show the many sides of fashion and personal style.

    So, F&A, show us what you got!



  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 9,611 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Twee.

    Had a horribly long day so decided to sit in tonight and put on make up to relax (does anyone else do this? :o)


    Studio Fix Fluid as a base in NC 15.
    Urban Decay: Primer potion.
    UD: Gold colour on inner corner of the eye: Sell out.
    Bourjois Ombre a paupieres eyeshadown: 07 Noir Emeraude (a dark forest green, all bourjois is half price in Dunnes at the mo!) on outter 2/3rds of the socket and under the lower lashes.
    UD: Flipside blended in to that.
    UD: Twice baked in the crease and blended up and out.
    Lancome: Le crayon Kohl in noir along the lash line, upper and lower.
    No. 7: Highlights illuminating fluid on the brow bone.
    Mascara: Extra volume collagene lashes in black (I can't stress how amazing this is!)

    Also tried to recreate this look on my lips.


    I think I may need to go darker around the edges of my lips but I quite like how it looked.

    Nivea lipbalm as a base.
    Maybelline Superstay colour in Red Passion all over the lip.
    MAC lip pencil in Burgundy as a liner and to fill in half of my lip.
    Benefit lipstick all over in flirt alert.
    Benefit Burgundy colour gloss in the centre of my lip, colour is called Who does your work.
