OOTD & Makeup – Simple Goth for Winter Solstice

image

Hello, fellow darklings.  Today is Winter Solstice, which marks the first official day of Winter and also the longest night (and shortest day) of the year.  Unfortunately, I “celebrated” Winter by having a nasty cold all week.  Yuck!  Fortunately, I’m feeling a lot better.

Today’s outfit is very simple.  I’m working on simplifying my wardrobe (post coming up soon) and today it’s just a skirt, a sweater, leggings, and a pair of boots.  It’s also been raining, so no long skirts or pants for today.

I decided on dark makeup for Winter Solstice: dark eyes and dark lips.  Instead of my usual bindi, I’m wearing on 2 stamped diamonds on my forehead.  Nothing sparkly – just simple and dark.

Well, that’s it for today.  My apologies for the short (but simple – *wink*) post.  The next couple of posts will be pretty short as well, since they will be year-in-review posts.  Christmas is this Friday and I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday!

OOTD & Makeup – Happy Winter Solstice!

Today is Winter Solstice, which marks the longest night of the year.  It is also the first day of Winter, so I decided to experiment with blue eye-makeup.  Nothing says “wintery night” to me than dark blue, black and silver.  The silver sparkles could mimic stars.  Plus, it’s the holidays!

Of course, since I don’t work on the weekends (yay!) I wore this to work on Friday.  Here’s what I wore:

Here’s what I wore on my face.  Although I wear colorful makeup for my dance performances, I was a bit apprehensive wearing colorful makeup outside of dance.  Can I pull this look off?  I think I can, so I decided to experiment:

I wasn’t going to wear my false eyelashes, but my eyes lacked the oomph that I needed. (Fake lashes on the left; natural lashes on the right.)

 

I like how it turned out.  I’ve been pretty conservative with my makeup lately and it has been such a snooze-fest.  I’m looking forward to trying out more colors in the near future.
