Where I wore it: to the office
For the past few months, I've found myself drawn to make-up more than usual. I've had the same concealer-eyeliner-mascara routine for the past six years or so, rarely straying from that combination, and before that- save for some ill-advised phases during college (pink eyeshadow, yellow eyeshadow, cheap-o fuchsia lipstick)- I didn't wear make-up at all. Cosmetics have always been a bit of a mystery to me, a mystery that I didn't necessarily care to solve, clothes are more fun (and easier in my opinion). But, maybe due to the doldrums of winter, I have a new found interest, and one of my goals this month is to upgrade to better quality, cruelty free cosmetics.
Radiant Cosmetics was kind enough to send me a couple of tubes of their moisturizing lipstick to help bring awareness to their Kiss Slavery Goodbye campaign, and I couldn't be happier with it. Not only is Radiant supporting a worthy cause- with 20% of profits going to anti-human trafficking organizations- but their products are also cruelty free, ethically sourced, and ethically manufactured. January is National Human Trafficking Awareness Month, and I am wearing Radiant's "Montana" shade, which is a nice, blushy pink. To read more about Radiant, go here.
A little bit about my outfit: After a few years of sky-high platforms, I've decided this year is going to be about sneakers for me (we'll see how long this lasts), and I am all about these Nike Dunk sneaker wedges. While I love them paired with a comfy dress and cardigan, what I'm really waiting for is summer- to wear them with cut-offs and a tee shirt. They run true to size- maybe a little big, I'm usually an 8/8.5, these are 8's- and are the most comfortable shoes ever.
