Outfit #12 + Makeup: Color Blocking

Ever since I've seen these bright colored pants on other bloggers, I've thought about buying some on my own... I found some really great ones in pink in the Dominican Republic for only 10€. Even there, they're made in China ^.^ Anyway, I first only intended to wear them for my dance events but I soon got the hang of it and decided to wear them in my daily life as well...

I wore this outfit for a dinner party at my friend's house.

As I mentioned, the pants are from the Dominican Republic (10€), the top from Amisu (10€), the cardigan from Forever 18 (14€) and the pumps are from Buffalo (69€).

For the makeup, I wanted a bright lipstick to go with my pants, so I decided to wear Revlon Colorburst #045 Raspberry. Therefore, the eye-makeup is rather simple - black eyeliner and mascara. I also didn't use too much blush and bronzer to keep it simple and clean.

But to contrast the pink, I still decided not to repaint my nails and kept P2 #590 Who cares. Since I only colorblocked the pink with a hint of turqoise on my nails, it's not over the top but still fun for spring time. Looking at the pictures now, I think it would be nice to wear turqoise earrings as well. Maybe next time ˆ-ˆ

  • Maybelline Color Tattoo #40 Permanent Taupe (#35 Tough as Taupe in the US) in the outer corner of the eyes to deepen the area.

As you might know now, I absolutely love bright colors. I still think, one has to be careful with color blocking because it's not about wearing any bright colors together but about being more courageous about colors and make them unite in one outfit. For me, it's a fun spring and summer trend ˆ.ˆ  

But how about you, how do you like color blocking? Go or No-Go?
