I found this cute, basic black dress on clearance at Target. I'm not sure why it was on clearance in store, but full price online, but I have a feeling I will definitely be wearing this dress a lot more often. My belt belongs to my best friend, and I've worn it in my last two OOTDs. My opaque black tights are also from Target, and since they are thick, they are more resistant against tearing! I bought these amazing 5" platform booties from David's Bridal, when I was working there as a dress specialist. They are from the White by Vera Wang collection and are the most comfortable heels I have ever worn!
Now onto the face! For my eyes, I chose to do a golden cranberry smokey eye, using my Coastal Scents 252 Ultimate Palette. I took an antique gold shade all over my lid, and black in the crease. Then, using purple and cranberry colors, I blended the edges to create a flawless look. On my lips I'm wearing the Milani Color Statement Lipstick in "Sangria"!
Also, just a quick note. The iron I used for my hair was a BaByliss Pro Porcelain Ceramic 1/2" Marcel Iron. I got this curling iron while in beauty school and I have to say, it has become my most favorite thing for curling hair! Take some time to learn to properly curl your hair. There is a proper technique. Using proper curling technique not only will give you beautiful, shiny, long-lasting curls, but will help save the ends of your hair from so much damage.
That certainly was quick! Now I'm off to meet up with my boyfriend before heading off to a party. I hope you all have a very happy new year. Be safe, and enjoy!
