Rimmel Challenge #4: A Good Read at the Cafe

I’ve been nominated to participate in Rimmel London’s Stay Glossy Contest and am now a finalist! For the next few weeks I will be completing challenges to create head-to-toe looks for different occasions. Help me become Rimmel London’s official blogger by voting below. My fourth challenge:

As much as I would like to enjoy high tea at The Plaza, today I am parking myself down at one of my favorite cafes and reading a smartypants book. In case you were curious, it’s called The Creative Business Idea Book, which showcases ten years of breakthough thinking, and I’m drinking a cup of Earl Grey tea. I decided to have a little fun with this look and really get into character. If I was a chic bookworm, what would I wear? I based the outfit around this awesome sweatshirt with brown elbow patches. It has such an academic feel to it. Going along that theme, I paired it with my new schoolboy satchel and thick-framed glasses. The rest of the outfit fell together easily. I kept the booties the same color as the stripe on my bag and my fur vest in the same color story as my elbow patches. A very warm Autumnal color story meeting a Winter palette.

I decided to bring the warm tones up to my face as well. Brown is a more approachable color than a contrasting black, and I wanted to look welcoming — almost-neutral. For my eyes, I did a brown smokey and was heavy-handed with the dark brown eyeliner. Since I am wearing glasses, I did a more dramatic eye so the focus isn’t taken away by those frames.

Staying as natural and earthy as possible, I decided to chose a gloss color that is close to my lip color, but a little pinker. So when it is applied, it gives off a vibrant and healthy look to my lips.
