#SBBC – The Bad-Ass Biker Look

So I have no ‘It’s in the Bag’ for you tonight but I do have a sexy new biker jacket to share with you. I decided to go all out and create a Bad-Ass Biker look especially for the occasion. Now I’m not very ‘bad-ass’ as you can see, aside from a few tattoos I’m pretty low-key.. normally. But here it is anyway!

jacket

I’ve had my eye out for a biker jacket for weeks now and when I saw this one in New Look for just £39.99 I knew I had to have it. It’s bang on trend for Autumn and it’s practical too. It’ll keep me warm enough without making me overheat. I love the zip detailing on this jacket, it’s also really fitted and it’s so flattering. It nips me in at the waist too. It also has fab creases at the elbows which look fantastic. This will probably be my favourite Autumn piece.

Outfit

I kept the outfit simple to let the jacket and shoes speak for themselves. I just popped it on with a simple vest top and skinny jeans. I love these shoes which I’ve had a while but I think the cute bows make it a more feminine outfit whilst still looking ‘bad-ass’.

Makeup

To pull of this look I believe your makeup needs to stand out and make a statement too. For me, only a smokey eye and red lips would do. I used my Benefit Smokin’ Eye kit for the eyes. I used a No7 black metallic eyeliner across the whole of the top lid and 3/4 of the lower lid. I also used my new Body Shop Eyebrow Kit to define my brows a bit. I applied a couple of coats of They’re real and a bit of Benefit High Beam under my brow.

I applied plenty of M.A.C. powder blush in Mocha for a flushed, ‘I just got of a motorbike’ glow. Followed by highlighting my cheek bones with even more High Beam.

A slick of MUA Shade 1 lipstick over a Barry M Lip Liner and I was good to go, to go where I don’t know seeing as I’m still sat here and now in my pyjamas! I can’t wait to do this look again over the weekend!

A Wedding in the Sun!

2I went to yet another wedding on Thursday this week, It was in the beautiful Coach House at Marks Hall in Coggleshall, Essex. It was a glorious sunny evening and I realised around 3pm that day that I had nothing to wear and nor did becky!

After the most hysterical changing room trip ever we both found a new dress in New Look. I totally loved the dress, I don’t know if they still do it in the adults section but I got it in the 915 range seeing as I’m fairly short! I love the aztec print on this one, as most of you know, I also adore anything navy right now.

I teamed it with a pair of navy wedges that tied in perfectly with my outfit. I decided to keep accessories to a minimum due to the striking pattern of the dress. I used a little black over the shoulder bag.

This is the overall look I created for my evening makeup that night, it took around 45 minutes so was easily manageable for a night out.

3I kept my eyeshadow classy and neutral seeing as it was a wedding and I didn’t want dark smokey eyes for a summer evening.

I used a my MUA neutral palette to create this look which was perfect for attending a wedding. I used a base of a medium brown across the whole lower eyelid, then a dark gold at the outer corner and a lighter one in the inner corner. I then used a very light brown below my eyebrow. I also added some Benefit High Beam below the brow line and on my cheek bones. I loved this look and it worked well with my red Barry M Lipstick (Yes the one I rave about ALL the time!)

I also done 3 coats of the They’re Real mascara by Benefit and I think they looked pretty good!

To end I just thought I’d share a few photos of the night!
