• Private XV | Naked •

I guess you can see what today’s Private post is about – well, it’s not about literally being naked, but the real #nomakeup without exceptions. No foundation, no concealer, no mascara, no filter. Because this world needs to see more naturalness, more realness – and less “perfection”. The picture above was taken right after removing my make-up and I felt beautiful at this moment. The ones below show my happy self after taking a shower (yup, these are selfies and the sun was shining so brightly I couldn’t help but take some shining pictures!). :)

To be honest, today’s post is not a favorite thing for me to do because I love make-up, I’ve loved playing with it since I was a little kid, and I love wearing it to make myself feel ready to face the world. I love showing me like this, all made up. It sounds pretty dramatic, I know, but make-up is kind of my cocoon when I want to feel great and beautiful. And this is a fact that actually makes me a bit sad – because we’re all beautiful without make-up. We don’t need to hide behind several layers of BB Creams and powder, behind shimmering eye shadow and the perfect “cat eye” liner. And yet people expect a woman to wear make-up – because that’s what a woman’s supposed to do. A woman’s supposed to be pretty. If she isn’t/doesn’t wear make-up, she “doesn’t care about herself” and “isn’t interested in looking good”. Brands sell stuff to make you “shine bright like a diamond”, give us the “fake lashes look” and plump up our lips to be “kissable”. Celebrities post their #wokeuplikethis pics on Instagram and simply “forget” to mention the one-hour routine with their make-up artists before posting a selfie with the hashtag #nomakeup (but hey: it’s really not that easy to achieve a natural-looking make-up, it’s even harder to do than smoky eyes!). But why lie to us? Lie to ourselves? Because women need to look pretty?

With today’s post I want to contribute to the real #nomakeup thing – because I like myself like this. I go out like this and I love my face without make-up (as much as I love the routine of putting on all these products and seeing the final result – it’s just so fascinating!). This is me at my purest.

Here’s → my skirt again! And as I promised you, this look is completely different than the → official “Witchcraft” look. I know, the skirt is still a statement piece, but I hope this outfit shows you how you can easily downdress it to a very casual style – even with sneakers (which is something I’m kind of digging right now…)! :)

I don’t even have more to say than: go for it! ;) I’d be so, so happy to see at least one of you wearing my skirt – so if you buy it and style it, please let me know! :)

Dress: Anna Scholz for sheego

Earrings: Dior “Mise en Dior”

In cooperation with sheego.

Here comes the last look of my Anna Scholz for sheego lookbook! It’s a very elegant one and maybe – if the bride is okay with that – also a look which you can wear as a wedding guest.

This time, I decided to pair this → amazing black maxi dress with silver and black patent accessories. The dress comes without a belt but as you know, I love to accentuate my waist – plus: it gives the dress a personal touch. I went for matching silver earrings, while I chose black patent shoes and the matching shining black lips clutch. It’s definitely an easy look but it looks highly sophisticated. That’s also what I love most about Anna’s dresses (not only about those in her own collection but also those for sheego) – easy to wear but at the same time very stylish.

I’m wearing a size 44 and it’s slightly loose around my waist – good thing I’m wearing a belt, right? Even though it looks amazing without it, too. 44 is my regular dress size, so if you ask me for a size recommendation – stick to your usual size or one size smaller if you’re not that curvy around your upper torso, and I’m pretty sure it will fit perfectly.

Last week was full of events and meetings and one very special photo shoot – I was just too tired (and lazy, to be honest…) to do my Monday outfit post. That’s why it’s coming today – I hope you don’t mind. ;)

At least, the outfit is something new and unusual – me wearing a skirt and sneakers! How did this happen? :D To be honest, I originally wanted to wear this look with yellow ballerinas and it looks cool too, but then I realized that it was time to do something different again. That’s why I went for my super old adidas sneakers (unfortunately, I don’t even remember the model name) and I love the casual style of this look.

P.S.: That’s my new hair – the next “more blonde” appointment is at the end of May. ;)
