To fringe or not to fringe

Eyeko skinny liquid eyeliner (Navy), Maybelline color sensational lipstick in Midnight Plum (338)
Today I thought I'd switch it up a little from the normal outfit posts and just have a chat about anything and everything. I really can't believe how fast this year has flown by so far and I feel like so much has changed since January. I've finished college now and its less than 2 weeks till results day (PANIC STATIONS!), but I'm so excited about the prospect of university and all the opportunities it brings. I want to keep working hard on blogging, being consistent and enjoying every minute of it, and slowly but surely I'm getting to where I want to be.

And talking of change, I'm forever debating what to do with my hair! I do love having a fringe but some days its such a pain in the ass! (See: Should I keep the fringe? Grow it out? or just go all out and dye my hair wild colours? Knowing me, I'll be keeping it the same for a while longer anyway.
I have, however, been trying to switch up my makeup a tad, pictured above is my favourite look at the moment. I keep my base makeup very simple and steady as my skin is so quick to breakout, and I do adore my dark matte lipsticks. So I tried a new slightly lighter shade of lipstick with a bit of shimmer and I was actually really impressed. As well as changing my black gel liner for navy liquid liner, mostly inspired by it being free in Glamour magazine and some friends suggesting it was worth a try. Eyeko liner pens as a whole have not impressed me, but I do love the colour and staying power of the liquid itself.

For now its only a tiny makeup revamp, we'll see where the rest of this year leads me.
Change is not a thing I relish, but its time for a new undertaking :)
