Organizing your Wardrobe this Autumn

Autumn is here pretty much here. So that means it is time to get the warm clothing out in time for the chilly season. Organizing your wardrobe this autumn is a must for me. It is the only way I think straight, as far as style is concerned.

Here are a few tips you may find useful if you are planning on preparing your wardrobe for new chilly season.

 

Have a Clear Out

I like to have a good wardrobe clear out after every season. The clear out session is always very ruthless. I lay all I have on my bed and take decide on what stays and what goes. This allows me to take a good look at my wardrobe, so I have a good idea of what clothing and accessories I do have. It also allows me to see the pieces I don’t like or that no longer fit. Having a clear out allows me get rid of the items that need to go, which will in turn creates room for items I do need.

Apart from how much the clear out helps my personal style, I also find them veryΒ therapeutic. Living a clutter-free life is so good for the state of mind.

Storage

Once the clear out is done, old season’s clothing and accessories go into storage in our mini attic. It is currently impossible to have all my clothing in my wardrobe, so storage makes my life a lot easier.

 

Fill up the Gaps

Once the clear out is done, and the excess is kept in storage, there are usually gaps in my wardrobe that need filling. So I usually get a few pieces and accessories here and there. I always ensure I shop smart in order for my clothes to work hard for me.

Arrange the Clothes in Order

I like to arrange my clothes in order. So for autumn/winter, I would have jumpers and sweaters in a section, cardigans and shawls in another section, and it goes like that. Having my clothes in order allows me to see what I have and decide on what I want to wear quickly. Having a disorganised wardrobe gives me a migraine.

 

How are you organizing your wardrobe for autumn/winter season? Is your wardrobe in order? Please drop your comments in the comments section below.

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day.

Beauty Muse – Princess Diana

I saw the Netflix Documentary – The Story of Diana, some weeks ago. It reminded me why the whole world fell helplessly in love with Princess Diana. She was a rare gem, that touched so many lives all over the world. This documentary marked the 20 years anniversary of her death and I can’t believe it has been that long already. I remember watching her burial on TV at a hairdressing salon when I was about 10 years old, and how the whole world stood still on that day.

I learned a lot from documentary about her personal life, marriage and how she moved on after the marriage. 20 years ago is a long time. I guess I was to young to make sense of what I read in the tabloids. I found the part of the breakdown of her parents’ marriage very sad, so I can imagine how she must have felt then. To be fair, I found the whole documentary sad but I am glad it is on Netflix, so those of us who were too young to understand what was going on back them, can have a good idea now.

The Story of Diana Documentary triggered this beauty muse post. The princess was indeed a beauty, both inside and out.

There was something so personal about the Princess Diana’s look. It is hard to place a finger on it, but I believe she was the whole package. She had the height, the figure, the beautiful face and her hairstyle was hair goals back in the day. I also loved the fact that she wore very light makeup, and still looked phenomenal.

If you are yet to watch the The Story of Diana documentary on Netflix, I urge you to go watch it. It is a 2 part series and shows real life interview clips, footage and so on. Definitely worth a watch.

Do leave a comment with your thoughts if you have watched the documentary. Also, what do you think of Princess Diana as a beauty muse?

 

Smokey Eye Makeup with LOLA

I was challenged by the lovely people at LOLA Makeup by Pearse to create The Dark Angel also known as smokey eye makeup using makeup products from theΒ new collection of Autumn/Winter Hypnotic. I had an amazing time creating this look. It took me out of my comfort zone, as I usually go for softer eye makeup but I like this smokey eye look. Its is dramatically channelling a futuristic femme fatale, and I am so in love with the look.

To create this Dark Angel Makeup with LOLA Makeup by Pearse, I used Eyeshadows 012 and 019, Highlighter Powder 01, Ultrashine lipstick 034 and Nail Polish 012 Pebbles.

I found the products very easy to use as always. They looked great on my skin as well, which was amazing.

The whole idea of the look was to draw attention to the eyes by going for a metallic shade combines with an ombre lip to create a modern and edgy look.

Here are the swatches of the Highlighter Powder, Ultrashine Lipstick and Eyeshadows.

A little more about the products –

 

Highlighter Powder

This light-diffusing creamy powder highlighter instantly illuminates and gives skin a a sheer glow that brightens the skin and blends easily into the skin for a light and delicate finish. The sheer glow can finish off any look beautifully.

 

Eyeshadows

Both eyeshadows are rich and have intense colour coverage. They are perfect for a natural everyday look or to provide a base colour for building, blending, highlighting or contouring. They are dead easy to apply and look fab!

 

Ultrashine Lipstick

This Ultrashine Lipstick 034 is a high-performance lip gloss compressed into a lipstick format. It has a high gloss effect and a divine wet-shine finish. So it is very light and there is hardly any visible colour on the lips.

 

Nail Polish

This nail polish has been formulated with Expert Gel III technology which is especially engineered to ensure fluidity, as well as high gloss and resistant wear. It is super easy to apply and dries pretty quickly.

The whole idea behind this Dark Angel look is to draw attention to the eyes, and keep the focus on there. Β So I started off with the eyes, once the primer, foundation, and concealer have been applied. I used an angled eye shadow brush to create a dark frame outline with the LOLA Eyeshadow 012. Then I blended in the Eyeshadow 019.

For the lips, I went almost nude with the Ultrashine Lipstick 034, and applied the Pebbles nail polish to my nails.
