And you can call me Queen Bee?

I have been so excited for this post because I seriously believe that I have poured my heart and soul into it and that THIS is exactly the kind of content I want to create for my blog, and I’m excited to see the evolution in the quality and type of blog posts. This is my ‘Lorde’ style post, because, well, the Queen Bee is a serious style muse.

I remember the first time I decided to REALLY listen to her music, having heard a lot about this new singer. I binge watched some of her music videos and sure, they were great, but what REALLY caught my fancy were these YouTube videos of her performing at various shows. You know how there has to be real character incorporated into songs, and an image of the artist has to be developed-a vision, an identity? Lorde is so full of character, so different, and gives mesmerizing performances. I feel like if I were ever to see her perform, I would be captivated by every element of the performance, the mood that is set, the lights, her gothic clothes, her dark lipstick and eyeliner, her beautiful lustrous hair, the emotion and power with which she sings her songs and the little ‘on-stage’ moves she has (you would have to watch a video to know what I’m talking about) all add up to make such a striking and bold identity. I really do love her, she is a serious style muse in my list of very selected muses.

I decided to channel a bit of the Queen Bee, so I decided to go for bold purple lips! As I do not yet own a powerful purple lipstick of my own, I had to improvise. I used this intense purple eyeliner and filled my lips in with that, and smoothed over a lip plumper on top of that (life hacks, am I right?) The liner itself was sparkly with glitter, so it added a whole lot more to the look. I felt like a total rock star, and felt DAMN powerful, listening to great music, taking and editing the pictures I took. The colour is so intense and vampy, and I LOVE that. 

This was an incredibly fun post, and I’m so glad I went through with it without any procrastinating, ha. This post was actually in collaboration with Areeba and Noor, so check out their posts as soon as they go online! They are both channeling their ‘inner Lorde’ in their own ways, and they actually have hair just like her which makes me so jealous! I have wavy-straight, thick hair so I had to go for her thick, straight tresses look. Ah well, Lorde looks so gorgeous in both of them. Sigh. 

I hope to do so many more posts like this, and have planned so many more future, the thought of working on them making me ecstatic! Hope you enjoyed this!
