You know it’s a good day when the newest blog post is all about gorgeous, sexy and sultry lingerie. And when transitioning from Autumn to Winter, I find it’s important to wear the right kind of lingerie with the right makeup looks to bring us into the new season. As I’ve mentioned in my Curvylicious blog post, when it comes to our bodies and style, one sure way to be comfortable and confident is with the right lingerie. Bras are like jeans; there are so many styles yet they can be quite tricky to try & buy. However, with the right size (get yourself measured at least once a year), the right bra and the right style, you’ll feel happier almost instantly.
Enter American lingerie brand Adore Me and their absolutely beautiful lingerie. They’re the “new face” of lingerie that offer chic bras, underwear & sets, sleepwear and corsets, designed with a strong focus on superb quality and great fit. Adore Me caters to all sizes from 30A to 44G, as well as clothes from sizes XS-6XL! And my gosh I am in LOVE with their designs, they’re all so darn romantic and gorgeous! Adore Me currently only ship America & Canada.
So what better way to talk about these lovely pieces than to pair & match them with my favourite beauty products! Adore Me have created this fabulous infographic that pairs four of their favourite lingerie sets with four trending beauty looks, my favourite of these pairings is the metallic eye dust & berry lips with Nataleigh Unlined. But what about my personal favourites? Well, take a look below at what my favourite three Adore Me lingerie pieces are that I’ve paired together with my favourite picks from my own beauty drawer!
Killer Fashion Favourites
The Adore Me AW15 collection is full of luxury; dive into rich blue hues, sweet pastels and crisp berry tones in familiar silhouettes with a refreshing twist. This collection is all about color – celebrate the changing seasons with delicate lingerie modeled after major color trends. Feeling like a fashionista? Don’t forget, it’s what’s underneath that really counts.
This Camila Unlined Bralette is a classic black piece that features orchid pink accents and a shimmering lace-trimmed neckline, and is perfect for layering! I love an unlined bra or bralette myself; I find them more comfortable and the romantic style of this racerback is just beautiful. My beauty products for the AW15 season that I would pair with the Camila are my Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine lipstick in #18 Prune in Fire, as the dark berry shade would compliment and also contrast well with the orchid pink. To emphasize my lashes I’d use Yves Saint Laurent Babydoll Mascara, as I love how it hugs each & every lash perfectly for that wide-eyed finish. Spritz with my one of my favourite sweet & floral perfumes, Christina Aguilera Inspire, and I’m good to go!
For AW15, I’m adoring darker shades and this forest green Wilma Unlined set is just stunning. It features plum bow accents with a hint of gold, which adds subtle sexiness to your look. It provides phenomenal support without extra padding that’s great for us larger cupped ladies. I love the lace & silk matching panty for this set too. Going for a matchy-matchy finish, I would pair this with my NARS Nail Polish in Night Porter. I love this nail polish with great pigmentation and shimmer, as you can see on my Instagram. With this look I’d also pair my L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Collection Privée lipstick in Julianne’s Nude with it as it’s the perfect nude shade, and add a cat flick using my favourite Yves Saint Laurent Eyeliner Faux Effet Cils and thicken my lashes with Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara Curved.
I love pink lingerie, it contrasts really well with my tanned skin and is definitely the most girly of colours, and I can be quite the girly-girl at times. So there’s no way I couldn’t love the Odette Contour set, with its orchid pink hue and the lace detail along the cups and trim. Longline bras are also one of my favourite styles, and this one is also foam-lined cups and smooth microfiber to feel extra soft against the skin. For an alluring and romantic makeup finish, I would pair this with my Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette using the soft shimmery shades High, Combust & Thirteen. I would also add my Christian Dior Addict Lip Glow lip balm, which adds subtle colour and extreme moisture for perfectly kissable lips, Oriflame The ONE 5-in-1 WonderLash Mascara for a false lashes effect and smudge out with my favourite liner, GOSH Cosmetics Kohl Eye Liner. To complete the look, a couple of spritzes of Victoria’s Secret Bombshell Forever Eau de Parfum, and I’d be irresistible – haha!
