I’ve been feeling pretty inspired by a look I’ve settled on a ‘powerbitch’. It started when I decided to change up my makeup routine and do something different with my hair, and now I’m feeling like it should spread to my wardrobe and accessories. The way I see it, powerbitch is sleek, chic, dark, powerful, and not pretty, not soft, not romantic, just strong and uncompromising. Obviously all these characteristics can happily coexist and intermingle to form an amazing powerbitch, but when looking for inspiration, I find it preferable to go in with something of a single-minded vision. When I wear this stuff, I want to feel like I’m dancing in the background of a Robert Palmer / Roxy Music video, or about to carry off an elaborate heist.

I’m really feeling dark metallic eyes with smudgy eyeliner, finished off with a beige-pink lipstick. On my eyes I’m enjoying the Sleek palette in Storm (linked below), and I’m using Topshop Lip Bullet in Motel pretty much constantly at the moment, but seriously coveting Nars Audacious lipstick in Anita, which is also linked below. Here’s the makeup look that I started with…

And here is my powerbitch wishlist!

Black slim lapel blazer // Nars Audacious lipstick in Anita // Black scuba bodycon dress

Black and white jumpsuit // Black and snakeskin block heels // Fold-detail dress

Green feather necklace // Sleek eye palette in Storm // Mesh-top jumpsuit
