Zygomatic

Here’s what I wore on le face today! I found my way back to Zygomatic Cream Blusher from Illamasqua once again, it’s like a softly blushed nude colour that doesn’t stand out a lot from the skin, but it creates dimension and life once applied. Topped with LUSH Skin Tint in the colour Feeling Younger on the cheekbones and under the brows the skin just glows!

Also, the nail colour is a perfect budget alternative to the trendy pale blue that Dior released this spring. Pop the bright blue against a pinky red lip for a perrrrty contrast!

How bright/dark do you like your reds?

At the moment I usually go for the brighter, shinier reds with a little transparency, but I really want to come back to the deep mattes!

Throwback: Summer! Bright lipstick! Freckles!

I just stumbled upon this look from last summer and got all excited for NEXT summer when I’ll be able to wear lipsticks like this again! Bright lips against naked or nearly naked skin is totally lush. Feels so-so with my tired blue-white February skin though, so I’ll let the classic red lips and powdered up winter face rule a little longer..

Here I’m wearing Flamingo Pose from the Milani Color Statement line, the perrrrfect pinky/coral red colour.
