Femme Luxe Clothing & Makeup Looks

- Advert. Contains gifted products and affiliate links. -

Hey guys! I recently wrote a post featuring some outfits from Femme Luxe and you guys seemed to enjoy it, so today I am back with another!

As I did with my previous post, to keep it beauty related I will be discussing the makeup I used to compliment each outfit so that you can get some makeup inspiration. Femme Luxe allowed me to pick out 4 products to review for you again, so that’s what I’m here with today. 

For this post I chose another lounge wear set, leggings, a crop t-shirt and a knitted jumper

If you’d like to read a bit more about my general thoughts of Femme Luxe and for some info about them, do check out my previous post where I discussed the brand in more detail.


Rose Bardot Cable Knit Oversized Jumper

For my first choice I went with this lovely light pink, oversized knitted jumper. It’s an off the shoulder style with very wide sleeves. 

This jumper could go so well with so many things, but I kept it simple with light blue jeans and trainers for that perfectly cosy but feminine combo.

I was a bit worried that because it was so big that the shoulder may slip down a bit too much, but it really is the perfect "shoulder hug" and is super comfortable. 

The big sleeves may bug you a bit if you’re working hard and trying to get stuff done, but if you need something warm and cosy then this is the perfect choice. So no, it won’t be good for cleaning your house or for being at work, but it’s fab for cosying in your garden on a cool summer night with hot chocolate and a book, or for going for lunch, or shopping.

I ordered the size S/M (8/10). 

Makeup wise I went with nude shades on the eyes and one of my favourite dark nude lipsticks of the moment: Tarte Color Splash Hydrating Lipstick in the shade Set Sail. It’s a gorgeous shade that can be worn all year round, casually or dressed up. It goes with pretty much everything, too. On top of that, it’s very long wearing for a hydrating lipstick and it doesn’t dry out the lips at all. 

I wore the same makeup for the next outfit, so the full makeup look will be listed after the next outfit.

For my second choice I went with another super cosy choice in this black lounge wear set. The jumper is cropped and off the shoulder, but I’ve found that it can sit naturally as a bardot neckline style jumper too. The joggers are high waisted.

This lounge wear set is great for getting cosy at home to watch some Netflix in bed, but it’s also fab for heading out shopping too.

The joggers can also be teamed up with a T-Shirt too to make a different outfit if you fancy as well. I can imagine me wearing them paired with a white T-shirt a lot when it’s too warm to wear the jumper out and about. 

I ordered the size S/M and it also comes in grey, khaki, pink, stone and camel.

Makeup wise for these photos I went with the same as the pink jumper as they were taken on the same day, full makeup look details are below:

For my final two choices I went with a black cropped T-Shirt and some leather look leggings. For these photos I am joined by Mr. Raphael the dog who was adamant that he was to be in the photos. I'm not complaining though, he's adorable.

I chose them to wear these two together, but both the top and the leggings can go with a whole range of other things.

The T-Shirt is thin, so will be great teamed up with some high-waisted shorts in the summer. However, it is the type of material that can get creased easily, so if you’re picking it to take away I’d make sure that you have an iron to use wherever you go. It’s also opaque, but if you have a photo taken with the flash then it may turn a little see through (as we worked out taking these photos!), so be prepared with a black bra if you expect to be photographed. I ordered the size S/M.

I ordered the size 10 in the leggings, but when they first arrived I was a bit nervous that I’d received a 6. They seemed super tiny, but they stretched out enough to fit still, so it was a little deceiving.

I used to wear leather look leggings a lot but haven’t done so in ages, I had almost forgotten how versatile they can actually be. They can be worn with heels and almost any top to have a quick and easy smart-casual outfit or teamed up with trainers if you want a more relaxed vibe. 

The snake print jacket that I have with me in the photos is one of my choices from my previous Femme Luxe post, so if you want to check that out too then you can find it here.

theBalm Alternative Rock Vol.1 Palette

Makeup wise for this one I went a little more fun, ramping up the pinks and the glitter. I used theBalm’s Alternative Rock Vol.1 Palette on the eyes, along with adding a little glitter all over the lids to make the whole thing sparkle when the light hit them. 

On my lips I used one of my favourite, but sadly discontinued lipsticks; Too Faced La Creme in the shade Lollipop. I usually pull this one out in the summer because it’s just full of fun and looks fab under the sun (it’s a bright purple shade with glitter). I’m gutted that they don’t seem to want to carry on with the La Creme range, but you can find a couple of shades left on the Too Faced website (not Lollipop) and if you’re in the UK then a quick search-a-thon of some a lot of online beauty stores that I know just showed that you can still find the shade Lollipop on Look Incredible. So if you want this shade, act fast before they’re gone forever!

Here’s an old Instagram post with a better look at the shade:



And here’s the full makeup look:

And there we have it!

If I have to pick a favourite product from this post I would say it’s the pink jumper. It’s just so cosy and comfortable whilst being easy to wear. It’s also a perfect choice for spring in the UK for when we finally get weather that is juuust warm enough to venture outside without a coat again. It’s a beautiful spring shade and is thick enough to keep you warm in the cooler spring air but not too thick to be cloying.

You can find all of these products from Femme Luxe.
