Today I am just staying in around the house so I decided to pair my blue/grey plaid top with some leggings! The plaid top is from Select in the UK and I absolutely love it. I bought this a few years ago so I doubt they still have it in store but I'm sure you can find similar plaid tops around stores near you. It is a button up top with a sinch at the waist which is great for creating a more hour glass type figure. The top is long enough to wear with leggings and does cover your bottom so it is great!
Underneath the plaid top I am wearing an Aeropostale camisole in a light grey colour, which I usually wear just because I tend to get cold so layers are great to keep warm in the winter months. I wear these camisoles nearly every single day and I love them so you should all check them out!
For my leggings I think I also bought these from select and they are meant to look like jeans. So they are a light blue colour with back pockets and a button in the front. I personally love wearing leggings and find them super comfortable to wear everyday and they are a big fashion staple in the UK.
For shoes I am wearing my Converse shoes in black with glitter. I bought these in November and haven't really wanted to wear them out recently as it has been super rainy and wet here in England and I am a little paranoid about the glitter coming off because of the rain. I know that some people don't actually like the look of converse paired with leggings but I love them together.

For my makeup today I decided to do a natural eye with dark black liner and a red lip, classic I know! I actually never wear a red lip or even wear no eyeshadow and just eyeliner so this was a big change to my makeup routine and I really quite like it! For my face I used Loreal's True Match foundation in Ivory along with my MUA setting powder in Shade 1. This is my daily foundation routine and I use these 2 products every single day.
For my cheeks I used ELF All Over Color Stick in Lilac Petal which is a creamy blush, and I topped this with my powder blush in Rimmel Lasting Finish Soft Colour Blush in Live Pink. I layered a powder over the cream just so the colour lasts all day and I wanted to add a little shine to my cheeks so instead of a highlighter I find the Rimmel blush gives a nice glow to my cheeks.
For my eyes I used my MUA Intense Colour Eyeliner in Jet Black which I absolutely love and lined my upper lash line as well as my waterline on the bottom. I set this with a black shadow from my Sleek iDivine palette in Storm. Finally I curled my lashes and applied 2 coats of my MUA Lash Boom mascara, which I am really loving at the moment.
For my lips I decided to use a few different colours to create a somewhat ombre effect giving the outter lips a deeper colour than the center. To create this I used Rimmel Lasting Finish LIpstick in Temptation on the outer lips and used Maybelline Lipstick in Petal on the center of the lips. I also used a tiny bit of Nyx Round Lipstick in Opal and rubbed my finger into the product and dabbed this into the center to give it a glow! I love this effect with the ombre lip and think it is a great change to just using a normal lipstick.
For my hair I didn't really do anything special and just put it in a high ponytail which is my favourite. I did use a little Tresseme hair spray to smooth down a few flyaway hairs near the actual ponytail but the rest is just my natural hair texture.
