THE IMPORTANCE OF A GOOD RED LIPSTICK



Bordering the time when Summer turns to Autumn, richer and more burnt nuances take the lead. Although a fantastic shade for summer, I personally feel more comfortable wearing a rich red on my lips. With summer heat, I just get it everywhere - on second thought though, I just generally get it everywhere (mainly because I can't keep my paws off snacks)..


But asides from leaving a trail of where you've been in the kitchen, red is a colour that sparks and communicates confidence, and for these reasons alone, I will always keep coming back to this look. If you've been following the site for a fair while, you might know that MAC's "Ruby Woo" is one of my absolute favourites, being matte and just simply gorgeous on (moisture lips are crucial for this one though, or you'll find yourself in cake town). For this Autumn though, I've been falling (pun, ha!) in love with more glossy, creamy looks. So for this! I bring you Zoeva's Cooling Passion which I'm wearing in all shots. In the second photo, I added a base of Topshop's Infrared, which is more orange, giving a more burnt orange red, but I reckon brown bases would look amazing as well.

HOPE YOU'RE ENJOYING THE WEEKEND

  2. This is such a gorgeous red! My all-time favourite red is NARS' Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square, but as it has orange-tones to it, its probably more of a summer shade. For autumn I'll probably be sticking to L'oreal's Color Riche Exclusive Reds in Liya's Shade, but these looks so creamy I'll have to check it out :) x

  17. What a beauty... MAC is always been a favourite brand of mine and I am so loyal to this brand. This Red colour is just killing me and I can't weight more to buy it. Mine make up shopping is while availing the coupons of LavishCoupon.com, ClothinRIC.com, Savings and sites a like they save a lot for me.
