The Beauty Buffs - Black and White





      Hey, babes! The Beauty Buffs are back again and this week is something I'm all about. Black and white. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I love me some black clothes. I'd say 80% of my wardrobe is black. I'll never get tired of it. For this look, I drew inspiration from one of my favorite tops I picked up at Asos this summer. Check out all the details and a link up to other great black and white posts after the jump!














Products Used

Rica Blackout
Rica Whiteout
yellow acrylic paint
striping brush
dotting tool
Rica Glossy Glam










     I started out with a black base and then added top coat. I did that so the colors wouldn't smear or drag. With a striping brush, I made an "X" and then kept repeating that until I created the daisies. The beauty of flowers is that no two are the same. Don't worry about perfection! 










     To finish the look, I added a few yellow dots to the middle of each daisy. Top coat is a must for this look. It softened the flowers and made it look so much better. 

     Side note: I decided to give Brand New's Daisy a spin while I was writing up this post. Appropriate, right?







     I hope you don't mind the cliche mirror selfie! I posted this picture on Instagram not too long ago. As you can see, I love black and white. (Let me know if you'd like more OOTD posts even if they're lame mirror pictures!)

  7. hahaha! Whatever it takes to make you feel good! There was a daisy dress I wanted from Asos, but I waited too long to grab it. It sold out in just a few days.

  8. HAHAHAHA! Copy away! I can't remember where I found the pop up thing. If I find it, I'll post it in the group. And for the mirrored selfie, I used an app called Diptic. It's great for collages on your phone, too. :)

  9. Love the daisies, they're the print from my summer dress, so cute. I don't normally like flowery patterns, so I'm quite surprised these catch my eye.

    And definitely more OOTDs! You look awesome.

  10. Thank you, love!


    I love daisies. I think I was drawn to this top because it's very 90s looking. Plus, it's sheer. I wear a cute lacy bra under it and you can just see through it a tiny bit. It's perfect for summer.
