Sunday was the day we have all waited for, well I didn’t wait but that’s besides the point, the third season of Sherlock premiered here in the states. So being the crazy fangirl I am I decided to do an Irene Adler inspired look for the occasion. I’ll be honest I hate the character of Irene but The Woman has style.
See what I mean? Ever so stylish.
Overall I am quite happy with how I executed this look. I of course went more casual with my clothing choice, but I think I pretty much nailed the hair and makeup, and will probably wear this style more often.
Black eyeliner: Besame
Blue “eyeliner”: Loreal
Coat: H&M The one I have has sold out but this one is a lovely alternative
Blouse: Hot Topic bought it ages ago so of course there aren’t anymore but Forever 21 has a great one!
I hope you all enjoyed this Irene Adler inspired look and that you have a wonderful weekend. Cheers!
This week’s Fashion Friday will be featuring Besame Cosmetics. The founder of Besame, Gabriela Hernandez, has quite the artistic background. Mrs Hernandez is a photographer, fine art painter/ design commissioner, makeup artist, cosmetic historian, art director, and has a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from the Art Center in Pasadena. These qualification in the founder are self-evident in the quality of makeup one receives. The eye for detail is like none I’ve ever seen. To have beautiful makeup is one thing, but to have beautiful makeup in beautiful packaging is enough to send this vintage lover through the roof. I am beyond thrilled with my makeup. I chose the Violet Brightening powder and Cake Mascara. But after experiencing how wonderful just these two products are, you can bet I will be purchasing more Besame! The violet brightening powder is brilliant for setting ones foundation and giving that fresh-faced well rested look we’re all so desperate for. Since it is a fine powder you can rest assured it won’t give that caked on powder effect. Plus it smells heavenly, it is so hard to find violet scented anything these days!The Cake mascara! I was so anxious to try this product, I remember my mother talking about the old cake mascara that her mother used and I was extremely intrigued. So when I found out Besame was selling cake mascara I decided I absolutely had to have it. Well it did not disappoint, not only is this cake mascara more sanitary than regular mascara *you’re not putting a dirty brush into your makeup over and over* it goes on so cleanly and gives beautiful length definition, and it can be used as browfiller as well as eyeliner! I’m not wearing it as eyeliner in these photographs, but I was curious to see how it would work the other day and gave it a whirl. I love a strong catseye so I’m very picky when it comes to eyeliner. Well I do believe I have found a new favorite eyeliner! The formula is so perfect, it glides on so smoothly, no tugging or skipping (Oh goodness I hate when eyeliner does that) and the small precision bristles make the perfect liquid line achievable even for the shakiest of hands! I’m in love and I don’t care who knows it, Besame cake mascara is one of the best things to ever happen to my makeup collection!Look how clump free my lashes are!
