What I bought – April 2018

As I am still building my wardrobe and have to remove a lot of stuff, that is not compatible with my new found Kibbegory, I thought it might be interesting for you to see how I am building my wardrobe.

6 rings by H&M Up until now I rarely wore jewelry, because I always feared to look too overdressed, but as a Theatrical Romantic I need to make sure, I am dripping in diamonds. I feel like these rings will give me a good work base. They sparkle and have a lot of detail.

Paperbag-Pants I love pants like these. I already owned a few, before I started dressing for my type. I love the waist definition these give and that they taper at the ankle. I still have to roll them up, because H&M doesn’t provide petite sizes.

Long Earrings What’s good about these earrings is that they sparkle, they are delicate but at the same time slightly oversized. The rectangular crystal at the top is less than ideal and the color is not perfect for my pallet, but overall I like them.


Theatrical Romantic Makeup

What Kibbe says:

  • Minimal contour
  • Blush is sparkly and slightly rounded
  • Eyes need sparkle or glitter
  • A colorful highlight, bright orbital bone, deep smudged outer lid color
  • Keep away from neutral / smokey colors
  • Eyeliner is smudged, mascara is heavy
  • Lips are glossy and bright

My (slightly modernized) findings as a TR:

Dewy, light to medium coverage foundations are best, use powder sparingly.

TRs can get away with non-smudged liner on the upper lid, but especially when you do that,  you have to keep the lower lid completely soft, e.g. no liner at all.

Glitter is more important than color = Lightly pigmented (cheap) glittery eyeshadow is an option for you. Especially if you’re natural coloring doesn’t call for vivid color.

Don’t go too heavy on your brows. Define them, but match them to your hair color. Never use considerably darker colors.

Light contour is good, but not needed. Keep it to two areas, eg. nose, and cheekbones. Never do heavy contouring, it’ll make your face look too yang and clash with your body. However, there is nothing keeping you from using a lot of highlighter. Think strobing.


Soft Dramatic Makeup

Eyes: Keep a strong, defined shape by using a dark lid color. Add a glamorous touch by using a bright orbital bone shade and a sparkly highlighter. Use a dark, distinct eyeliner and lots of mascara.

Blush: Keep a strong cheekbone by using bold color, but blend in a rounded shape.

Lips: Keep vivid, full and glossy.
