Plus Size OOTD & FOTD | Matching Your Outfit To Your Lipstick

Sometimes I like to match my outfit to my make up, in particular my lipstick. First let me show you my outfit of choice, which as it happens has a bit of hot pink in it, shocker lol.

OOTD | Matching Your Outfit To Your Lipstick
Animal Print Cross Top: Matalan
Skirt: Asos
Jacket: New Look

I absolutely love this outfit, especially the jacket, it's not the warmest around. For example I wore it to see The Hobbit, and waiting to be picked up afterwards, lets just say I was pretty cold, bbrrrr, but fashion is pain.

The top is from Matalan of all places and again it's a firm favourite of mine, very on trend with both the crosses and animal print. It is supposed to be over-sized, so I actually went down a size, I don't like my clothes to be too baggy, they just don't suit me. Who wants to look bigger than they actually are anyway?

Anywho onto my make up:
Mac Show Orchid Lipstick
Benefit Erase Paste
Mac MSF Natural
Illamasqua Tremble Blush
Illamasqua Aurora Highlighter

Nars Smudge Proof Primer
Nars Pleasure Of Paris Palette
Maybelline One By One Mascara

Mac Show Orchid Lipstick.

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this lipstick may times before, it's my all-time favourite Mac lipstick and one that I never tire of wearing. It literally lasts all night long, isn't drying and is definitely a conversation starter. I really wish it wasn't limited edition because I would hate for it to not be a part of my collection. I try to use it sparingly so it should last me a while longer.

 Have you ever matched your outfit to your lipstick? Or is that just me lol.

XOXO Claire


  1. Eeek i love Show Orchid! really want it in my collection but cant find it anywhere :( Just off to check out that ASOS skirt now too! I love a good bright pink, me :) x

    1. Unfortunately Show Orchid is limited edition, I found mine in a CCO a few years ago. Mac Lickable is very similar though and is in the permanent line. I think the skirt is in the sale now too :)

  2. I absolutely love the colour of this skirt! The whole outfit looks beautiful :)
