Celebrity Outfit Dupe #2 | Zara Larsson

Good Evening Munchkins!

Today I will be sharing with you some bits and bobs I’ve found whilst trying to recreate a look I found on the very beautiful Zara Larsson. This was taken  earlier this month, I believe, when she featured on James Corden’s Late Late Show in America. By far, this is the hardest look to recreate despite looking the simplest, so I have a few options and variations depending on which parts of the look you like or what you feel most comfortable with!

So this is the picture I found:

So as you can see, Zara opted for a very simple monochrome look, containing the strappy heels and peg leg/cigarette trousers (I always get them confused!) which are very on trend at the moment. I personally love these trousers on her; they look formal yet still slightly relaxed and the black waistband at the top really helps to accentuate her little waist. This suits her figure so well – her stylist should be very happy with him/herself!

You will also be able to see the very prominent and original print on her top, which I found so difficult to find alternatives of, hence why I chose two! The first one is from Wear All retailing for £12, which I hadn’t heard of prior to this blog post, so let me know if it’s trustworthy if you have bought from there before! I thought some of you may like this because it still has a very bold print but has the same straight neckline, meaning it’s not too flashy, but it can boost your boobs if that’s what you desire. The second is from River Island and costs £30, but I actually prefer the pattern of this one. I personally think it’s a little bit more flirty and the slightly scooped neckline is very much on trend right now. It also has spaghetti straps, meaning they can easily be hidden, just like Zara’s! This has to be down to personal preference because I couldn’t find an exact dupe!

Again, I had a bit of a nightmare finding the exact bottoms, which surprised me actually considering how on-trend they are! The first pair are from Topshop (originally Adidas) and retail for £26. These are very much leggings as opposed to trousers, but if you want that sporty-looking stripe down the side of the leg, this may be your way forward. I’m sure this is still totally fine to wear with either of the tops, but if you would prefer something much simpler, the peg leg trousers on the right may be for you. Also from Topshop, these cost £28 and have a much more relaxed fit. The differences from the image of Zara is that it hasn’t got the white stripe and it has a big, loose-tied bow at the front, which I know isn’t everyone’s cup of tear, so just bare this in mind! Again, this is down to personal preference, but I do think both pairs of trousers match both the crop tops really well. It’s okay to be a little bit adventurous sometimes!

new look 25.99pound

Finally, the shoes! The only thing I could definitely decide on! These are from New Look and cost £25.99, though they have a few variations depending on how many straps around the toes you want. I chose the one with 3 or 4 straps on each side because it looks like a few thick straps instead of one due to being able to see the skin in between slightly. These are a pretty statement pair of heels that I think would easily be worn time and time again, either to dress up a pair of trousers like in this instance or with a cocktail dress. The gold buckle also smartens it up quiet a lot! From previous wear, I can tell you that those ankle straps are very supporting, make walking in heels a lot easier and are definitely more reassuring to know that they won’t fall off!

And that’s it! I hope you have enjoyed this blog post – I loved writing it and finding all the items for you! Although I wouldn’t always opt for a look like this, I really do like it on her and the combination of sophistication yet relaxation with the heels and loose-fitting trousers. Who knows, maybe I can finally step out of my comfort zone?! Let me know what you think of this look and which variations you’ve gone for!

Thank you so much for reading and I’ll see you Sunday,

Bebe Rexha | Outfit Dupe #1

Good Evening Munchkins!

Today I thought I’d write something a little bit different which I’ve wanted to write for ages! Being a young person in an age where your appearance is oh-so important to some (though that is something I would heavily argue with!), it can become impossible to keep up with the newest trends without entirely breaking the bank! Hence why I have created a new little segment on this blog where I find clothing dupes for well-known celebrity outfits! I am so excited for this, probably more than I should be! Fashion is something I’ve always been passionate about so this has been the most fun research I’ve ever done! For this first blog post, I will be writing about an outfit Bebe Rexha wore on the 30th of January of this year (slight time difference but this outfit is timeless!).

As you can see, it’s very much casual wear that’s livened up with the long-line red coat and it’s unique pattern. I can assure you now, that was the most difficult thing to find a dupe for but I think I found a good match! Also, I wasn’t sure whether she was wearing a choker or had a neck tattoo, but it was very unclear anyway in order to use it to find something similar.

boohoo 4pound

So the first thing I found was on Boohoo and was the very basic white vest top. Nearly everywhere sells a white vest top because they are such a statement and can be worn at any time of year with literally anything, but this was the most affordable one I found, and I know that Boohoo’s products are very good quality for money from past experience. The one Bebe was wearing was tucked into high-waisted jeans but I thought that this cropped one was a similar length and could also be tucked into jeans just as easily. It has the same spaghetti straps, meaning you could go as daring as her and go completely bra-less! This was only £4 and you can purchase it HERE.

topshop 42 pound

Of course for the jeans I had to turn to Topshop, who are absolutely renowned for the quality of their clothing! None of the ‘Mom Jeans’ I found had the rip in the thigh, they all seemed to be on one knee, so I had to consider the length, fit and colour when comparing it to what Bebe is wearing. These are cropped and fairly loose fitting around the legs (as Mom Jeans tend to be) and the mid-blue wash fits what she is wearing perfectly. They have almost identical buttons and fastenings, and appeared high-waisted on the model. They’re rolled up at the ankles as she has done, also. Being Topshop, they’re slightly more expensive than anything else I’ll show you, but I do believe a good pair of jeans never go out of style and so they should be a bit more of an investment. These retail for £42 and you can purchase them HERE.

new look 22.99 pound

Despite Bebe’s shoes appearing very wild and out-there, the metallic silver is very on trend right now and, luckily, New Look is here to fix our needs! I think they’re metallic silver in the picture of her but the reflection in front of her is also shown as black, but I’m taking it as silver! These are literally the exact same for a very small price as they have the buckle up straps, pointed toe and stiletto heel I can see in her picture. These help to liven up the look from just being a very basic daytime outfit to something a little bit more glamorous and, quite frankly, it looks like you’ve made a bit more of an effort! Mom Jeans always look good with these kind of shoes, so you cannot go wrong! These cost £22.99 and are available HERE.

boohoo 16 pound

Finally, the coat. As I mentioned earlier this was very difficult to find but Boohoo answered my needs! This is just a plain, deep red, long-line coat with a very sophisticated open collar and pockets, but it is the same style as Bebe’s, even if the pattern isn’t the same. Again, as I said earlier Boohoo’s clothing do not fail you at all and are for a very reasonable price. All I will say about it is that this coat in this colour (it does come in a couple of other colours) is very limited in stock right now, so if you want one, I’d go get one quickly! This is on offer for £16 and can be bought HERE.

And there we have it! I hope you have enjoyed this blog post – I have loved everything about it, so I hope it’s been helpful to you too! Let me know what you think of the dupes I’ve picked out and whether you’ve actually bought anything from this little list! I would be over the moon if you did!

Thank you so much for reading and I’ll see you Thursday,

NikkieTutorials MAC Viva Glam x Miley Cyrus Dupes

Good Morning Munchkins!

As you probably know I am slightly obsessed with the makeup/beauty YouTuber, NikkieTutorials. I’ve only mentioned her slightly! I love her makeup tutorials and whatever goes onto her face has to go onto mine. My only problem is that because she is now a professional makeup artist she has all this makeup I would never be able to afford, hence this blog post! A while ago now, she posted a review I think it was of the new MAC Viva Glam range by Miley Cyrus and she was wearing the look I will be recreating today.

Little disclaimer, I created this before she put the actual tutorial live so that may be why some things don’t look like they should be there. This is purely inspired and if you want to see her review you can click HERE and for the actual tutorial HERE. Unfortunately, I don’t turn out the way her beautiful face does, but it has the idea of it in there. This could be worn out clubbing or for a party of some sort. It definatley isn’t a day to day thing.

This is the picture I found for today’s masterpiece, followed by the face chart:

Unfortunately, I don’t turn out the way her beautiful face does, but it has the idea of it in there. This could be worn out clubbing or for a party of some sort. It definatley isn’t a day to day thing. Also, I will just be showing dupes for the eyes and lips because I’m poor and I don’t any foundation which would make you look as gorgeous her MAC Face and Body *cries to self*.

I’m not too sure what the first product is to be honest. I think it’s a pigment of some kind but on the bottom it says Boots so it has to be from this country, at least. It’s not very visible in the picture but you can see some of it had already fallen onto my face and had I put any more on I would look like a human disco ball. It’s an ivory sort of colour which matches the one she used and I just used this on the inner two thirds of my eyes with my Model’s Own Blending Brush.

I next used Naked 2 from my Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette (the lighter brown) in my crease to add some definition. In the picture it only looks like pink in the crease but she almost always uses a brown to define her crease so I did it for the thought! Sorry for the bluriness, also.

WP_20150214_12_54_18_Pro

I then used the lightest colour from this Pink Claire’s Heart in the crease and blended down to my lash line from the outside. Wow, good vocab, Rach! I don’t know where the picture is for this but I loved how this looked. It’s a very subtle pink but it added that edge to it which is sometimes needed! It definitely wasn’t as bright as the one in her look, but you could easily swap it for any of the other colours in the heart if you want that brightness.

I next used my black liquid liner from Body Collection. If you saw my blog post the other day (read HERE if you haven’t already) I told you I was a beginner at eye liner. I’m living but that today also. I’m pretty chuffed with it thought to be honest! I tried to create that really elongated, thick wing but it was not working! Keep it short ‘n’ sweet!

WP_20150215_14_50_35_Pro

Lastly on my eyes I used Technic’s Shimmering Dust as a highlight on my inner corners just using my finger. If you’re going to use this as an inner corner highlight, I recommend using it a little bit at a time in order to build it up to the standard you want it to be. If you get a clump of this then stick it in your eye, you may blind yourself and I do not want to be the cause of your blindness. I don’t think this is necessarily a highlight, that’s just what I use it for.

WP_20150215_14_46_58_Pro

I didn’t add this but I just wanted to show you these AVON Nail Gems that you could use on your inner corners also. Her inner corners look so shiny and glam, and also if you don’t have a highlighter, it looked as if she used a little gem. This little wheel comes with a lot of colours, including silver, so you could just use some lash glue to glue this to your inner corners if need be. Just imparting some wisdom (like Chandler in Friends when he teaches Emma to say ‘one’)!

Lastly, I used Essence’s Stay With Me Lip Gloss in Trendsetter to complete this look. The best thing about this lipgloss is it’s completely build-able so if you don’t like it at this level, you can boost the intensity. I love this lip gloss so much, I would recommend it to anyone. I think it’s a good match for a drugstore brand, don’t you?

So those were my Miley Cyrus MAC Viva Glam Dupes. I hope you’ve enjoyed it, I really enjoyed it so let me know if you would like to see more.

Thank you for reading and I’ll see you soon,
