Getting ready for the Color Run Montreal 2015

Hello Loves!!!

No reviews today. I’m getting ready for tomorrow morning’s Color Run Montreal. This is my second year of doing the Color Run. So this morning I sorted through all of my make-up to find the brightest and most glitterific colours, and I’ll be testing out a few ideas later today.

The shirt is a super thin, super soft jersey – I’d even go as far as calling it tissue jersey. Very sheer, so I’ll be wearing a bright tank top underneath. Since the t-shirt is unisex sizing, the fit is super boxy and unflattering on me, so I decided to break out my fabric scissors and try to improve it a little by cutting off the sleeve hems (to make the sleeves shorter), and cutting the high neck band off, and making a slightly scooped wider neckline.

Here’s a few of my glittery brights. I might attempt a rainbow eye, this afternoon’s experiment will be the deciding factor of whether or not I have the skills to do it well. I also have neon pink, lime green (but not metallic or glittery). If you have any suggestions on what to wear colour-wise, or tips on doing a rainbow eye, please comment (or post links).

I bought a bandana to wear during the run because last year I found that the amount of coloured dust to be a little overwhelming at times, so I plan wear it around my neck and pull it up over my mouth and nose if my allergies start to freak out, or if I start to wheeze. Look how pretty it is:

Last year I wore a rainbow tutu, which was super cute, but really annoying because it kept moving up from my waist as I ran. So this year, I think I will leave it at home. But I do have some rainbow striped arm warmers that I will wear instead.

The headband is horrible on the head, but I might wear it around my neck. I guess I’ll figure it out in the morning.

Hopefully I will be able to take a few photos tomorrow during the Color Run.

Thanks for reading, and have a beautiful day! ❤ ❤ ❤

  1. Looks like a fun time! I’ve seen people on the subway covered head to toe in colourful paint, haha!
    Oooh rainbow eye, I saw so many on YT but one I liked was when she did a thicker white liner and placed the rainbow colours on top of the line – so it wasn’t crazy BOOM colour but it was really pretty. Good luck!

  2. The bandana is a great idea! We had colour run here too and I had a hard time removing the color dust off my hair. Guess what, after the early morning run I had to go to an alumni party at my alma mater and gosh, I didn’t manage to remove them all.. I looked like a peacock! lol ✽_✽ ❤︎ laineyloveslife
