E M P T I E S: (SCROLL LEFT) Something different for the feed...🤍Thought it’d be helpful to put together a list of my #empties. There’s always a lot of different products being inboxed, advertised and shown in tutorials. But what are you actually using through and through? These are products I use on the regular and would definitely repurchase because they’re all so good!👌🏾 More empties on my stories (this is limited to 10 unfortunately) and all links to products are on my blog (link in bio). Let me know if you want to see more content like this regularly. What are your empties?? I love to know what everyone’s loving 🥰😍😍 xx .#SelfCareSunday #SkincareEmpties #beautyempties

B R E A T H E: One thing I am loving about staying in all day is get to let my skin breathe and take a break from wearing daily makeup. Getting my money’s worth from all the hyaluronic acid masks I’ve been hoarding 👐🏽 💦 #stayhydrated

N E W T R A L S: More than anything, it’s the uncertainty about this whole situation that worries me. Never been a fan of the unknown. Hope you all are staying safe and keeping the mind active and stimulated in new ways. For introverts like me, this is a walk in the park 🤷🏾‍♀️ Ph by @scarlettstvns

Style Diary: Cyrena M

Today’s Style.  read is the perfect fit for Halloween: dark, edgy and intriguing. Her effortless swag is like no other. Meet … Cyrena Monique. I am a British (Jamaican/Dominican Rep/Irish mix),
I run two sites – one is an online mag/blog Freak Deluxe and the other is my personal blog Let Me See Your Wears.
5 things I’ve loved for as long as I can remember – Bashment, Fashion, Sweets, My Hair, the number 5.

I love easy dressing, I’m a jeans and t-shirt kinda gal at heart; styled up with some cute heels, fly jewellery, and a red lip and I’m good to go! I love BLACK,studs, and skulls (I’m kind of annoyed that studs are becoming so mainstream now). When I check it I’m a bit of a rock chick/punk princess. My boy calls me a morpher, says I can rock so many different looks and look good in all of them. Style influencers would be Mary-Kate Olsen, Solange Knowles, Steven Tyler, Elin Kling, Erin Wasson.

-Which brands or designers ‘speak to you’ the most?
Helmut Lang, ASOS, Maison Martin Margiela, Zara, I love Equipment for their button down shirts, Haider Akerman, Topshop, Alexander McQueen, Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, I love to look at BALMAIN in awe!

– Any beauty secrets?
No secrets, I’ve never been a big beauty fiend; I didn’t start wearing makeup till I was 18. Day to day makeup for me is a barely there eyeshadow, winged eyeliner, a little bronzer and blusher on the cheeks, and either lip balm, nude gloss, or a red lip. Oh wait I do have one beauty secret! To make sure you get great coverage and staying power from your lipstick colour your entire lips with lip liner, then apply the lipstick on top – a makeup artist friend told me that, it works! I have a basket full of lipsticks!!! I don’t bother with foundation or anything like that, I love a good makeup look to look at but not on my face.

-Favourite make-up brands.
MAC, Yves Saint Laurent, Sleek (eyeshadow palettes are great), L’Oreal, NARS, Sephora.

-What is the most beautiful thing about you and how do you accentuate it?
If we’re talking about face I’ve had a lot of complements for my eyes and lips. I almost always wear winged eyeliner, and people love when I rock a red lip! Other than that it’s my legs, for as long as I can remember people have commented on them; because they’re so long!

-If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional. with whom would it be and why?
Anyone that gets to travel for a living, and I’m not talking about back packing. I’m talking about going to great destinations popular or undiscovered, where I can enjoy great weather, food, people, and shopping.

-Your favourite music track would be…?
Right now I’m loving Gyal a Bubble by Konshens, my inner dancehall queen is dying to break out when I hear it! Other than that it’s Mercy by Kanye West, Pusha T, 2 Chains; I love the hook and the sample!

-What is your favourite trend right now?
I don’t really follow trends you know, just pick and choose little gems I like. I am loving the glam goth trend and also the male inspired tailored look. Basically I love anything that fits in with my laid back wardrobe. In saying that, I am warming up to a peplum but I’m not sure if and where I would wear that. I’m going to make a couple of the looks from the Christian Dior Couture AW12 show, so we’ll see.

-Comment: ‘If you got it, flaunt it’…*
Depends what ‘it’ is!

-If your life was a movie, what would be its title and who would play you?
I don’t know what it would be called, maybe ‘Diary of a Broke Bitch’ ? but Zoe Saldana would definitely be called in for the role!

Your top 5 must-haves.
-A great leather jacket
-Good pair of jeans that make your legs and butt look great
-Red Lipstick
-A closet full of shoes
-A good sense of humour

-Your house is in flames, what one item would you save out of your closet and why?
I can’t!!! My leather jacket that took me 5 hrs to stud by hand? My red Balenciaga Weekender? The dresses I made from scratch?! I have no clue!

-Your all time fashion icon is…
Michael Jackson! I’m sure Balmain look to his costumes every season as inspiration for their collections.

-Your favourite quote/saying
“Everything happens for a reason” Over the last couple of years I’ve come to realise this statement is so true whether good or bad.

-Do you have any blog, video links or website we can catch you at?

Just brilliant isn’t she?

I love your hair. Now I want to try the ombre trend!

What is your take on Cyrena’s style?
