THE PERFECT UNIONS


Sometimes, just sometimes, the union of two are better than one. Take peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Equally awesome on their own, and although it wouldn't be obvious for the unexperienced, these two compliment each other perfectly. Now take vegemite - good in small amounts, right? Now add that to your otherwise perfect fruit salad, and it's irreversibly ruined and is only worthy of the drain.

There wasn't any worry in my heart that the last mentioned example would in any way apply to the union of two of my favourites in their designated fields. We're talking about the Neoneutral collaboration between NARS, experts of the make-up game and inventor of my favourite highlighter uniting with London designer Christopher Kane, bringing his eclectic and exciting taste to the table. Now this is peanut butter and jelly proportions, alright!


NARS NEONEUTRAL MAKEUP / VINTAGE T-SHIRT / LEVI'S JEANS / NEXT SHOES

As mentioned above, NARS stands undefeated as my highlighter champion, with their Multiple Highlighter stick in Copacabana, and Violet Atom from this collaboration made me clap my hands yet again. Just a slight pink and blue tint that gives a perfect 90's feel to the look that especially worked well with the Silent Nude blush.

And of course, let's not forget the glosses! Although I don't avidly use lipgloss, I've recently discovered a fun way of wearing it. Follow my steps below for an Ombre lip:

1. Start by applying the lipgloss all-over your lips to tint the entire lip.

2. Wipe it off so you just have the stain left on your lip. Dab the Silent Nude blush on your entire lip apart from right in the center.

3. Apply lipgloss just to the inner edge of your lips and smack your lips together multiple times, to create the ombre effect.

HOPE YOU HAVE A COLOURFUL WEEK
