Rock the #TrendOfDaDay Each day of the week with a different flavour in your own way!

So the last week in September was where the glorious sun has been hiding all year. Well she had her hat on in full effect giving all you sun angels a last min golden brown glow to take into the autumn. And with it we must keep our style on point!
This week was a last flash of the legs and Tan Platform Wooden Sandals. Definitely gives this look that fashion edge. Finished with a hott golden wine mix nail polish, adding that wow factor. 

With the heat being pretty intense and on the humid side, I opted for a soft cream chiffon layered dress. Its ruffles add a playfulness and length paired with heals adds a risqué factor transferable from day to night. I used my favourite tan waist belt to clinch it in at the waist. This gives the outfit a little more charisma and shape but still flirts with the idea of being prepared for anything. The mustard scarf is optional, gives a daytime feel. Could also be tied around bag handle just to add character. Remove for an evening look. 

Left minimal with no danglies, jewellery and hair scraped back this leaves the make up to stand alone and carry itself. For complexion I used only cover sticks in selected areas to conceal where needed. I used my matifyer mixed with complexion enhancer for a warm glow without shine. To get an even blended tone with my stipple brush I smoothed over in circular motions applying a tiny amount of crème to powder compact to the tips. To seal a two way powder was used heavily to regain some coverage, topped with bronzer on cheeks and t-zone, probably the last time l'll have the bronzer out for a while. 

Cheeks were contoured much with terracotta and chocolate blush cheekbones swept with radiant highlighter. Eyes were kept to a two shade maximum 2day. This trend is more about ficus on radiant complexion so when creating "Golden Angelic" focus on cheek or lip rather than eye-shadow. To start I used concealer pen to matt and even and reflect the light. This way your eye-shadow will stay on longer and look smother. I highlighted under the brows with a gold shimmer that shade warms to different skin tones. I also swept it along the lid before using a small about of black to shadow in the socket. All applied with fingers to smudge and blend.

Finished with a Charismatic rosy wine lipstick with a radiant lacured finish.

Try this look with black skinny jeans or leggings too. Try replacing the scarf with large beads...Stay Sxc xx
