Monochrome with a flash of colour

I have always loved simple black and white with just a flash of a bright colour. That could be bright lips, a neon handbag, a chunky coloured necklace or other coloured accessories.


Summer Lips

I generally always have quite muted colours on my lips, nudes and natural peaches, but in summer
I think vibrant lips really complete that bronzed holiday look. Bronzed complexions look great even with nude lips but I just think hot pinks and corals are pretty for the summer.

Today I went really bright!! I used an Annabelle fuchsia lipliner, I coloured in the whole lip as liners are a great base to keep lipstick on longer. Because liners are quite dry they stain the lip better and then the lipstick you apply on top bonds to the liner keeping that on too! (Givenchy lip liners are my favourite, they’re nice and creamy and stay on all day. However, despite me having every shade, they don’t have a fuchsia like Annabelle’s) I applied The Body Shop’s shade 69 on top of the liner and then just dotted on some M.A.C Cremesheen glass in Galaxy Rose and rubbed my lips together. Gloss adds another dimension giving your lips more fullness and leaves them looking hydrated.

In Winter I wear more gloss but in Summer I find it quite sticky, you don’t want too much shine so I just dot a little on.
