Plus Size Fashion: My Birthday Outfit and Makeup
Hi everyone, it was my birthday last month. I did not get to celebrate it since my sister-in-law got married that week itself and it has not been smooth sailing since then. I have had health issues and job-related commitments in addition to fatigue to tend to which is why you are going to see my birthday outfit today. So let’s get started!
Boots: Marks & Spencer
I had high fever on the night before my birthday. So I wanted to dress up and go out, and yet stay warm. So I chose this deep emerald green dress from AND. I picked it a couple of years ago. Since it’s a knee-length dress, I paired it my deep blue H&M woolen tights and black Marks & Spencer knee-high boots.
The whole outfit was cool toned so I decided to break the pattern and add a warm-toned jacket. This is a suede jacket from Gipsy. I love this jacket but would have liked shorter sleeves since these ones hang weirdly on me. If I had a similar jacket in black, blue, etc., I would have definitely worn that. Anyhow.
Since I was not well, I did not want to do a lot of makeup. So I ended up using a shimmer-y eyeshadow all over my eyelid (from my L’Oreal eyeshadow palette), bold eyeliner (L’Oreal Gel Intenza eyeliner in 05 Sapphire Blue) and a playful pink lipstick (L’Oreal Paris Gold Obsession lipstick in Rose Gold) in addition to my L’Oreal True Match BB cream.
As usual, I paid zero attention to my hairstyle and just tied it in a high ponytail. The green reflector sunglasses I am wearing are from Lenskart.com. I love them even though they do not seem to be the ideal choice for protecting eyes from the sun!
I did not accessorize a lot for this look even though I usually like to wear lots of accessories. But I think the green earrings add to the whole outfit. So yeah, this was quite a “throw something on and try to enjoy the birthday” kinda look 😉
