Hey, everybody! Normally I lean heavily toward pastels, but for my first post, I wanted to start things off with a bang. So, naturally, I took my neon items and mashed them all together to create a mega-bright masterpiece for you all today! Below I’ve included a flat lay of the outfit and all of the pieces that I used.
So, the focal point is a Good Luck Trolls x Dolls Kill mesh top, featuring different Troll belly gems. I wanted to focus on the color pink for the outfit and pull out the gem colors in the makeup. With that in mind, I immediately got some bright pink fishnet tights, a couple of matching hair bows, and, of course, I had to include my Miss Stackin’ Dough platform sneakers. Then, I went to pull my dELiA*s by Dolls Kill Teen Confessions pleated skirt, but here’s the thing: it’s an older piece, so it’s too faded! So, after a lot of sighing and sulking, I decided that maybe it would’ve been too much pink anyway. In the end, I decided that the next best option for my limited selection of bottoms would be some simple black shorts (from Target, not Dolls Kill, aren’t you shocked?) to complement the fishnet tights.
Quick product review!
The material of the top is so much softer than I thought it would be, and it’s held up pretty well considering how often I wear it. It retails for $28, and the sizes are listed as extra small to extra large. Usually, I wear a medium or large, but a small fit me perfectly on account of the stretch.
So, I know that there’s some curiosity about these shoes. On the website, they did not look as bright as they are in person but, considering my experience with Dolls Kill and the fact that this has happened to me three times now, I probably should’ve known. That being said, I’m still happy with the color, and the soles are very squishy and comfortable. The gem strands are detachable and easy to get on and off. The sizing is just a tad small, so if you do go to pick these up, I would order it in a size up because there are no half sizes.
All right! We have our outfit and accessories locked down. Now, as promised, I’m going to go into the makeup I used to finish off the look. As I said before, I wanted to bring out the other colors pictured on the top: yellow, orange, green, and blue. The first thing I thought of, given the color combination, was a cut crease eyeshadow look. To add a smoky eye, I chose to put the green and blue above the crease while keeping the yellow and orange strictly on the lid. I also did this because I have blue eyes, and a green and blue combination wouldn’t make them pop as much as a yellow and orange combination would. For a cut crease I like to put the outer and above-the-crease colors first, and then go in with a concealer on the lid before adding my lid colors. For one last hoorah, I decided to use some bright pink lipstick to finish it all off.
Here is the final look. I hope I did a decent job explaining and that you were entertained all the way through! Enjoy!
