Styling a bodycon dress ft. 3 simple makeup looks

27 March 2017

Hey everyone! I've officially reached the last week of my internship and honestly, I really don't know how to feel about this. I hope I did alright and also hope that I didn't cause anyone too much trouble :') Anyways, emotional speech aside, lets talk style.  

If you ask me what's the best timeless dress out there, I'd say bodycon dresses. Bodycon dresses comes in different cuttings and designs but one thing they do best is flaunting your curves beautifully. If you don't already own one, you've obviously yet to find the best bodycon dress suitable for you. Fear not, today let's walk through a few of my favourite bodycon dresses and ways to style them from head to toe. 

First off, let's start with something basic and casual. If you think bodycon dresses are restricted to parties, you're missing out big time. You can definitely make it casual by getting a striped bodycon dress. Mix with a denim jacket/nude coat and complete the look with a pair of white sneakers. A style like this is perfect for those who wants to look girly yet comfy at the same time. 


For a comfy casual style like this, you could opt for a slightly toned down no-makeup makeup look. This look is all about being effortless, quick, and basically focusing in making yourself look awake when in actual fact you're probably still sleeping on the inside. To start with this look, I've filled in my brows and concealed all my uneven skin tone and acne. To make my eyes look slightly larger, I drew a thin line with my favourite burgundy liquid eyeliner, finishing off with a hydrating coral lipstick. 

The following bodycon dress design I'd like to add to this list will give off a cool vibe and it's also my favourite out of the three. High neck bodycon dresses. Wear it on its own or pair it with a nude coat for a more sophisticated look. This look is great for traveling as you'd sure want to get as many gram-worthy ootd shots along your trip. Plus, this look is timeless and trendy across all countries. Strappy heels will definitely add an extra spice so don’t forget to pack a pair on your next trip!


Since you'll be taking a few more extra shots of yourself with this look, here's an elevated version of the previous makeup look above. Keeping the look simple, this time, dust a cool brown shadow on the outer 'v' of your eyes. To add more colour to the face, I've also dusted a soft pink blush on my cheeks topping it with a littttlllleeeee bit of opal highlight. On my lips, I've dabbed on a magenta lipstick lightly and blend it all over with my fingers to achieve a more soft pink lips.

Last but not least, black never goes out of style and this applies to the little black dress. So if this is your first bodycon dress, get yourself the little black bodycon dress and pair it with classic black heels for a polished look. This dress will definitely double up for various occasions from parties to even casual meetings when paired right. If you did not notice, my selection above are mainly dresses which covers the arms because for a personal recommendation, as someone with larger arms, this is some sort of a 'personal hack' to flaunt dresses while being able to show some skin and hide the meat at the same time ahahha!


I had each look planned to match a different mood yet keeping everything effortless. For a night party look to match the black dress moodboard I've paired above, I've added more dimension to the eyes by further adding onto the last makeup look above. 
What I've added here is a touch of burgundy eyeshadow, thicken my eyeliner slightly, draw some fake bottom lashes with my liquid eyeliner, spam the highlight and switch up to a bright red lipstick. 

I hope you ladies find this post helpful when you're mix and matching the perfect bodycon dress ootd along with the three simple and effortless makeup looks to cater three different occasions. Now that you're inspired, it's shopping time! *cheers*
