A couple of weeks ago I posted a photo on my instaglam of a lipstick colour I had created by mixing two of my favourite lipsticks! I don’t know if this is an existing thing or not – but I felt like the person who created sliced bread! No longer do I look at my makeup collection and say to myself ‘hmm which of these 9 lipstick colours should I wear tonight?’ I say ‘WOH which of these 72 lipstick colours should I wear??’ (9×8 options?) although some of them do look terrible together so it’s probably more like 50, or 20 – but still, it’s more than 9! Also I may need to clarify for any boys that may happen to read this – by colours I mean shades, because yes, they are all pink xo
Here are my FOUR fave combos! (I actually discovered another goodie but you’ll have to wait for that one) I like to apply each colour to a different lip – this isn’t just for a funky photo, but it stops you mixing the colours on your actual lipstick! [ Mirenesse Stiletto + Lime Crime Countessa Fluorescent = ]
[ Barbie Pink! ] This is such a cool colour – the orange tone brings out the pink to make it that much brighter
[ Revlon in Soft Nude + Lime Crime in Countessa Fluorescent = ]
[ Baby Pink! ]
I love my Countessa Fluorescent, but it can be overwhelming! Mix it with a little nude and your away laughing!
[ Mac in Morange + Mac in Russian Red = ]
[ Tangerine! ]
Can’t decide between red and orange? Try both!
It makes it that much more vibrant and that much more fun!!
[ Mac in Lady Gaga + Revlon in Berry Smoothie = ]
[ Baby Gaga! ]
I tend to find that Gaga is a little toooo pale for me and tends to wash me out.
Mixing it with Berry Smoothie gives it that little extra colour that I need!
Try mixing some of your own lipstick shades before rushing off to spend your hard earned pennies! xo
Nude tones scream class! They’re subtle yet sophisticated. They say, ‘Hey I put in effort today’, without yelling from the rooftops “LOOK AT ME!”. Especially at uni, when I want to feel good and ‘done’, but blatantly rocking lipstick at 9am on a Monday will scare off the nerdy kids – And I love nerdy kids!!
I’ve been looking everywhere for the perfect ‘life colour’ as I like to call it. A colour you can chuck on and wear everywhere (including to uni) and I found it!! Supreme Style from Mac’s Supreme Sheen range. Love love love.
[ I love this colour, if you can even call it a colour – it’s so simple and makes my lips feel soft and plump while providing a hint of pink and coral undertones to the nude base ]
Now let’s talk nails! Surprisingly I picked up this $4 (yes FOUR dollar) nail polish from a pharmacy and awkwardly enough it kind of works better than my more expensive brands… what is happening to the world? It glides on so well and hardens in minutes! I haven’t had such an easy nail experience since my boyfriend did my nails while I watched Mad Men! (jealous much?)
[ Plain colours not your thing? Try jazzing it up with a nail art pen! I used another bargain brand in gold and ran the pen along my nail bed.]
Last night a group of us went to a classy BYO at a local Japanese restaurant – and by that I mean a goon sack under the table and gourmet chicken nuggets.
A perfect opportunity for my first outfit post!
I have been meaning to do this for a while but I’ve only just settled into my flat and had access to my model (mannequin) Lana.
