Chasing Davies: Transforming the 'Not Nude Lip' from day to night for KCFW!

Transforming the 'Not Nude Lip' from day to night for KCFW!

Last weekend, I attended KCFW with a pre-event with Ulta before the shows.  They hosted a lovely cocktail party for the KC Bloggers and it was full of makeup trends, beauty samples, cocktails and catching up with friends, and then shortly followed by, of course, fashion!  I was freshly back from San Juan (having landed 3:30 that morning!) and the mix of Ulta's swag bag, bubbly drinks and KCFW designer shows was just what I needed to get past the jet lag.  

For my beauty look, I wanted to plus up the more natural make up look and "Not Nude Lip" trend I had just learned about (the tutorial here!) and transform it for evening.  It was really simple to add to this foundation! I just added a cat eye with They're Real Push Up Liner and extra mascara, which also allowed me to try out the Blackest Black spring-time makeup trend!  That's the best part about good products and a solid beauty base, it can be taken straight into an evening look with very little effort!

For my outfit, having just come back from the beach, I was still feeling that vacation vibe and for some reason, this spring jacket was just perfect for that feeling. In true Megan-fashion, I had to mix prints and threw on this old, but classically striped dress for the completion of the look. I love how the "Not Nude Lip" looked against the soft shades of the jacket and the black, and white graphics added some contrast.  Topped off with some gold jewelry, bright blue heels, a simple face and swept back hair - it was an easy, yet interesting look!
