♡ The Lazy Girls Guide to Making A Bit of An Effort ♡

I love makeup, I take a lot of pride in my glowing nose and fleeky eyeliner, but sometimes it seems like a colossal effort. Also, recently I’ve been re-watching the TV show Girls (If you haven’t seen this yet, I suggest you get on it immediately) and drew a lot of inspiration from Jessa Johansson (played by Jemima Kirke), who has inspired me to tone it down and get my lazy-face on.

Dry Shampoo

Obviously…

Powder.
If foundation isn’t your thing today, powder does an okay job of evening out your skintone a little bit and blotting a gross greasy forehead.

Moisturize everyday
It’s one teeny tiny step that makes the world of difference. If you’re not going to use lots of foundation to cover up, moisturizer is a lifesaver and a lot less effort. You just smear it all over your face, nothing fancy. Everyone has moisturizer even if they got it as part of a gift set from their auntie for Christmas.

Perfume
You just squirt it on your neck, how much effort is that, really? So even if you feel like you look like crap, people won’t even notice that cause you smell so great.

One colour is enough for your eyes
tumblr_inline_o6ysw4JvZ11sclyl7_500
Fuck the beauty gurus and their 50 bajillion shade pallettes. Today,  you only need one colour. Line your under-eye with a shade you would deem suitable to contour with and put some of the colour in the crease of your eye.

Highlighter
tumblr_inline_o6yswcJ5wG1sclyl7_500

Put highlighter on your cheekbones, down your nose and in the corners of your eyes to make you look bright and awake…even if you’re not. (Just look at this glazed-doughnut goddess!) You don’t have to go out and buy a highlighter if you don’t have one, a light champagne coloured eyeshadow works just fine.

A Teeny Pop of Colour
tumblr_inline_o6ysx7kLuv1sclyl7_500

You can have minimal makeup on, but as long as you have one colour that stands out on your face, be it on your cheeks, eyes or lips, you’ll look like you’ve made an effort for sure. No eyeshadow and bold lipstick is my go-to hangover face.

Lip-liner
If I’m not feeling too fancy, I like to outline my lips with a nude lip-liner, rather than leave them alone completely…Or you could just leave them alone…It’s a free country I ‘spose!

Much love, as always,
HOK

Hi there!

tumblr_ndrizgzcwb1r3tor7o1_500

Apologies, I haven’t posted anything in like 70 years. I don’t have much of a reason other than I have been in potato mode for a while, I’ve started a journal and I’m desperately trying to become a decent musician before an audition for college. I have a post ready for tomorrow though.
I’ve noticed a spike in likes and views since the Matt Healy post. Thanks for reading, I’m glad you enjoyed. x

The “Songs to Make You Feel Like You’re in a Cheesey Coming of Age Film” Playlist.

Good morning / afternoon / evening.
Have you ever sat on a bus with all these odd characters and old people staring at your shoes or your hat that’s a little bit too big? Or in your room relating to thousands of other people of your age on Twitter or Tumblr simultaneously stressing about assignments you have due and wondering whether you’re hungry or dying of boredom? & you wish you had a soundtrack to these moments because it’d make you feel a little bit less pathetic…Or more pathetic but in a cute, charming way? Wish no more. I made one. (I should do late-night infomercials.)

Man Crush: Matthew Healy

tumblr_ng8qjyc7XP1qcmdhuo5_1280Matt // Matty // Matthew Healy: Frontman of The 1975 and style icon.
Admittedly, I used to really dislike The 1975. So much so, that if I heard the opening riff to ‘Chocolate’ on the radio, I’d absolutely snap and knock it off ASAP. However, while in Captain Americas, ‘Girls’ was forced upon me and by brain rewired itself a little bit and I was like:
tumblr_n5djjrLmDK1sw5qzmo1_500

One thing I have always been a fan of though is Matt Healy’s wardrobe: Classy, expensive and badass as fuuuuuq. Or in his own words:
tumblr_ndkaqviwZR1u0oi79o1_500


However you’d like to describe it, Mr.Healy’s style is impressive. Ripped skinnies for the “wayward teenage boy” look, a leather jacket for a “I chain-smoke for aesthetic” feel and oversized tees/jumpers for a dash of “I just rolled out of bed”. This combination sounds try-hard and hideous and it would be on a lot of people, but somehow it works well for him.
Enjoy this collection of pictures curated by yours truly…

Sometimes he may wear shit that’s sent to him by adoring fans (t-shirt reads: “lol ur not matt healy”)…

Oh or that iconic coat feat. a jug of Pimms at Glasto…

Many have described Matty’s style as feminine. That’s because it is. One of my favourite things about him and his wardrobe is the lack of fucks he has to give about gendered marketing.

Wine is also crucial to the Matt Healy aesthetic. The shirt that he wears here is somewhat worshiped by teenage girls as it featured in the Robbers music video. It was available to buy on The Kooples but has since gone out of stock. However, click on the picture below to grab another shirt of his if you have €135 sitting around…

tumblr_nga9089S5V1r95f6ro1_500

If at this moment you’re feeling fashionably inadequate, fear not. Mr.Healy was not born with the impeccable sense of style he has now. He was once a basic bitch like you and I…

I am confident that I have supplied your much-needed dose of Matt Healy for today.
Peace and love,

Girl Crush: Kate Bogucharskaia

I first heard of Mrs.Bogucharskaia through a tumblr blog called Model Love, where there was only a handful of pictures of her and a shoot she did for Lurve Magazine. (below)
tumblr_n4n3s7zJGl1qzzt3oo1_1280I’m not sure what it was about Kate’s face that stuck out to me so much, but I’m afraid to admit I scrolled through her tag on tumblr for anywhere between a good 30 minutes to an hour. Her face…Is…Incredible.

Hailing from Russia, Kate stands at 5’10” and comes from a “middle-lower class family” (as mentioned on her instagram). I suspect it was her face gracing the cover of Vogue Ukraine that has generated the (well-deserved) hype that’s surrounding her now.

The “Walking in Shit Weather” Playlist

oowowwowo
It’s the time of year again to root out your duffle coats, boots, gloves, wooly hats, earmuffs, legwarmers… (I don’t know what you’re into.) So while we’re bombarded with ancient Christmas chuuunes 24/7, sometimes it’s nice to escape from that and embrace the gloomy winter afternoons. I’ve made a playlist that makes splashing through puddles or wading through snow a little more tolerable.
(Click the picture below to listen to the playlist in full on 8tracks)

Keep warm, much love
