20. Incorporate glitter
Again, the glitter will show in the makeup photo.
And here’s the evening outfit I alluded to! It’s a little blurry, because I took it around 5 pm, but I looked so good that I wanted to post it anyway. My friends and I went to the Actual Literal Opera, so naturally I decided to go all-out and dress the hell up. (The choker was a loan from my friend–not the one of the ones I went with, though.)
I wanted to keep my hair in the “updo” from the afternoon but the back was not cooperating, so I took it down and just used a big clip.

I’m standing in front of a grey wall and holding a metallic, pink cane in my left hand. I’m wearing a sleeveless, dark red velvet dress with a plunging V-shaped neckline, an empire waist, and a skirt that ends right at my knees. Under it, I have on black-and-grey mottled tights; just a hint of pink tape is showing through the tights on the side of my left knee. I’m wearing black pumps with a strap across the top of my foot. I have on big silver-and-black earrings shaped like swords, and a huge silver-and-black choker with various bits hanging off the front. I also have on dark red lipstick. As always, I’m wearing my round black glasses.]
