DASHING IN VELVET

posted by Elshane on Feb 25 2016, under Baby/Motherhood

What do you get when you put a snowstorm, a tight velvet (non-maternity, duh!) jumpsuit, some winter wonderland eye makeup, and an exaggerated faux ponytail all together? Only quite possibly the most fun moment of my entire pregnancy!

Who doesn't dream of being a balloon-sized snow bunny?! It was a grand moment, and I'll never forget it...

This jumpsuit is a staple in my (non-maternity) closet. I've worn her for everything from New Year's Eve dance parties, to conservative Shabbat dinners (oye vey), to date nights, and more. It's a feel good moment to be in a head-to-toe catsuit. And let me tell you, the feel good doesn't stop when you're sporting a bump. Fortunately she was stretchy enough to handle the 20 lb. expansion! Although she's three years old, Seven for all Mankind makes a nearly identical version right now. I'm almost tempted to buy a duplicate...

I had fun playing around with moderate winter wonderland makeup for this lewk. I'm always a big fan of an under the eye line-- it lightens and brightens and doesn't cut off your eye shape like if you were to do the same affect on the upper lid. 

For this lewk I chose a NARS white kohl pencil as a base line, and then I followed the same line with a thin layer of my go-to Urban Decay Heavy Metal Liquid Liner (a sparkly dream), choosing the silver sparkles colorway to round out the "snowy" affect. Lastly, I applied a thin line of black liner around my entire eye to make the whites and silver sparkles truly POP! Ok, and of course I finished with some mascara and a brow pencil...

It was just enough to make me feel glam, without feeling overly done.
