Rimmel Challenge #5: A Royal Affair

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 fifth challenge:

An outfit for a royal wedding isn’t complete without a standout hat/fascinator, or in my case a headband. Friend of mine and designer of gla.MAR.ous, Mary, created new headpiece for my royal look. This headband will be a new addition to her Pink Label soon, and I’m lucky enough to wear it first! I worked my outfit around this pretty and dainty gem piece. The combination of lace and a peacoat makes the perfect polished look to arrive in– and hat better color to wear than royal blue? To keep it dressy, I opted for black tights on black heels.

I kept the makeup pretty light and neutral. No eyeliner! Similar to the smokey eye look in challenge four, I used taupe and brown shadows on the lid. Instead of a heavy eyeliner, I brushed dark brown shadow along my waterline to add depth. My cheeks are lightly dusted with a pink blush and I made sure to fill in my eyebrow since the rest of the makeup is pretty light. The idea is to look clean and polished :)

As for my lips, I wanted a perky rosy color to bring more life to the face since the makeup is pretty subdued. I combined two different cool-toned lip glosses to achieve the perfect shade. I like to call this healthy glow!
