Blog Series - Curves around the World - Curvy Plus size Outfits - WEEK #13 ROCK CHICK

rock chick plus size / curvy outfit of the day / black 
The week really does come around weekly doesn't it- it's Wednesday already. Time flies!  

This week the theme is 'rock chick'. I'll be honest, this is not my usual style but I like what I came up with. I do wear all the parts separately but not all together as one outfit. It's casual and comfortable and I really like the little accents like the flower detail in the scarf, studs of the jacket which match the metal in the necklace and I love the statement necklace. It gives something extra to the outfit. I think the outfit is a little girly and pretty but still a little edgy and it's simple and not too fussy.

rock chick / skull / black / statement necklace / outfit of the day
I added the scarf as a little extra. I don't really like the skull trend but this scarf is so so soft and I really liked the floral detail and when it's on, the skull detail can hardly be seen as it's all scrunched up.

For the hair, I did a simple style I do a lot but I did accentuate the height a little. All you do is grab a little hair from the front section and pin it back with 2/3 pins each side. I don't use hairspray or product as it really doesn't need it. Easy and quick and you don't need anything but the pins!

Now for the make up. Base wise  I went for my usual MaxFactor powder foundation, Collection and Rimmel concealer and Natural Collection bronzing pearls to add some colour. I filled in my eyebrows a little and then it's on to the exciting bit I used the Urban Decay Naked Pallette and used the gunmetal colour and the black in a 'v' shape on the outer corner, blended a little and smoked it out. I then used my Cargo liquid eyeliner pen, kohl pencil on the waterline on the bottom and MUA eye shadow as a highlighter in the inner corner.  Oh and a lot of mascara! I used Maybelline the Rocket which is my current favourite. The eye look was super quick and really easy. For the lips. I went for a matte look as this is what I think of when I think rock style. I used a lip balm in advance then I used Maybelline lip liner in Pleasure me Red all over the lip. It's definitely a bold style and I wouldn't usually wear this eye and lip look together. Red lips in different forms I have majorly been into recently so I do that a lot, and next time I go on a night out I will do this eye look!

  3. oh, wow: Helen! you nailed this look 110% - you should wear rock chic more often, you really do look fab on this outfit - I agree the addition of the scarf brought some pazzaz - and that makeup girly its beautiful. Great post babe!


  4. Oh Helen, the look does suit you well! I really like the close up pictures of your makeup, you look so rock and roll in the picture. But yeah the details on that jacket is so great. I really like it and I think the scarf gives a great feminine touch to the outfit, I couldn't tell that there was skulls on the scarf but I think that's pretty cool sculls and flowers. Great post Helen!
