Raving Red

Yesterday I wore IsaDora Twist-Up Matt Lips lip crayon in the colour Raving Red, it’s so vibrant! Like a bright, almost pastel red. Not at all rich and saturated like a classic red. Happiness in a colour!

Here’s what I wore today, a soft shimmery smokey eye, bronzed cheeks and a nude lip. I LOVE that I’ve been able to go back to this colour on my eyebrows, this INGLOT eyeshadow has the perfect ashy, almost purple undertone.

Bichette

Before going to the hairdresser I snapped a picture of todays makeup, I’m wearing Bichette from ColourPop, such a perfect deep cherry red. Definitely vampy without feeling too blackened.

I have also rediscovered the Illamasqua Naked Rose blush, an old favourite of mine that I for some reason have neglected for a while. I’m not much of a blush person to be honest, especially not pinks. 9 times out of 10 I prefer just wearing a bronzer, and when I feel like wearing a blush it’s almost always a warm peach or apricot. Naked Rose is matte and neutral enough to not feel flushed, but it still creates a gorgeous balance on the face. Anyone with a light skin tone should own this!

Lumière

First full face of makeup in weeks! Feels great being somewhat back. I have missed wearing pretty lipsticks! The eye makeup will have to wait until my eyes stop running. Derp.

Today I threw ColourPop Lippie Stix in Lumière on in a haste before leaping to work, and even though it’s right on the border of being too 90′s for me (AIN’T goin back there) I like it! The opacity is amazing, one sweep is like cartoon lips. Read my review + swatch post here!
