Fire Red

Todays look! Nothing on my eyes, just a strong brow and bright orange red lips that match my nails. I’m trying out the CND Vinylux nail polishes that are supposed to wear for 7 days without damage, we’ll see how it works or if I’ll get tired of it before it starts looking crappy!

Also I just found the perfect eyebrow match for my new hair, I’m layering Peach Leopard Bronzer from Too Faced on top of my old brow powders. As the hair is a bit lighter than it was before the brows stand out more with my old semi-dark colour, but I really like the lighter hair/darker brows kind of thing.

Cherry Red

I’ve been wearing this KIKO Cosmetics lipstick almost every day since it arrived. I’m loving it! It’s kind of a muted red, the name makes it sound a lot brighter than it is. A classic cool red with some kind of dirty undertone, it’s a bit vampy yet it doesn’t need a lot of work to look good. Wears for hours once applied and turns into a true rockstar stain when really worn in. It can handle a night out without touch ups, eeey!

These two looks below were worn at different times, but I’m wearing the exact same things on my face. Hello basic face look.

Classic Rose

Todays makeup was quick and easy, I wanted  to wear something very neutral yet 1960′s inspired. framed eyes with big lashes (could I ever live without this mascara?), a plain cheek and neutral creamy lips. The lipstick is Classic Rose from KIKO Cosmetics which I showed you yesterday, it’s the perfect MLBB (my lips but better) shade on me!

My favourite “no blush” cheek combo right now

When I want luminous neutral cheeks and not bright and blushed this is what I’m wearing. Manasi Makeup Lyster Cream Bronzer swept over my cheekbones, softly across my nose and in my temples, then pink toned Illamasqua Gleam Cream in Flex on my cheeks as a highlighter.
