Light Holiday Glam in Checker + Black and Gold

Maybe because I feel like reading classics lately, even my title is overly long and descriptive =p

The title of the first chapter of Oliver Twist is “CHAPTER I Treats of the Place where Oliver Twist was Born, and of the Circumstances attending his Birth.” I just found that real amusing =p

Light Holiday Glam in Checker + Black and Gold — casual and slightly festive with a checkered collar, warm in a light shawl, and glam in black and gold accessories.


Please be generous with hyping, liking, and retweeting this look~! Thank you ^^

I’m really into collars lately, especially showing under a shirt it can 1) give an extra layer 2) look dressier 3) seems like you put more effort into your outfit.

Shawls are also great winter items. This outfit here is obviously an indoors outfit, but when you are out in the cold and you need more than your winter jacket, a shawl can go over anything for extra warmth (especially in Korea, it’s freaking cold right now!!).

This is a GaIn inspired makeup look from this exact photo:

This look was really simple. I just used Urban Decay’s Perversion 24/7 black eyeliner to draw most of the line, and then E.L.F’s angled eyeliner brush to draw a straight and clean edge with NYX’s black eyeshadow.

Using an eyeshadow instead of a liner to draw the end of your liner gives a softer and more foolproof edge.

I am also wearing a half sized false lash on the edge of my eyes to give noticeable lashes that don’t take attention away from the liner.

I really like how this look turned out. Also, I think GaIn’s makeup turned out well because I have a similar eye shape.

I’ve always admired her makeup and would love to do more in the future!

Eek! It’s a bit messy but some asked to see the back of my hair. It’s a lot shorter than the front.


I did a small cosmetics duty free haul before coming to Vancouver. I’ll share those items with you guys in an upcoming post!
