Taking It Back Retro Style #BeautiesOnFire

Welcome back babies! It’s Thursday and that means I have another Beauties On Fire post for you all! If you would like to see all the posts regarding Beauties On Fire click this link, it will open in another window 🙂

This weeks theme was very inspiring for me. I had so many looks that I wanted to go with. 80’s hair and big hoops. Red lips and Cat eye. T-shirt and Muscles. Huge lashes and too much blush. The theme? Retro Style.

My chosen look was going to be a mix of 80’s hair, big hoops, and red lips with a cat eye but things turned out different, thanks to my new Morphe Palette I received the day I created this look! You know how you get something new and you’re so excited to use it so you do exactly that whether you needed to or not? That was me with the palette haha.

I made another time lapse video for you all to see exactly how I achieved this look.

I decided I didn’t want to go full retro. I definitely love this look and I feel it’s my best and favorite so far!! I did keep the big hair and the red lips for the theme though. Also, I apologize for the quality of the video. I recorded in HD but it apparently didn’t follow through. I don’t know what happened. I included pictures at the end of the video for you to get the full effect and here are the pictures again!
