These pictures were taken just during London Fashion Week in September. I wanted to wish summer farewell by rocking this bright red lipstick with pastel coloured nails and floral dress. The day was warm and sunny as well, the perfect day to take a beauty shoot.
I always keep it subtle and natural with the rest of the make-up when I wear fire red lipstick. I believe that it’s a good balance. The Revlon Super Lustrous in Revlon Red 730 almost feels like a lip balm, shiny and moist. It doesn’t dry out your lips, though the colour does wash and fade out after a while and it doesn’t hold either; it stains. In fact, you might want to avoid kissing people or drinking from a cup for that matter.
When it comes to Benefit cosmetics, they are always one of my favourites! The blusher Coralista is powdery but in a sense that it doesn’t look ashy or dry. It feels smooth, blends in very well and not to mention the warm coral-pink colour is perfect for almost every skin tone! The BADgal mascara by Benefit is great, considering the fact that my eyelashes are so short and fine, BADgal enhances them and even give the illusion that I have long lashes. But to be quit frank, I don’t even like eye make-up, and I only wear them for special occasions. I have very sensitive eyes, and tend to rub them as soon as I put on eye make-up…believe it or not, the minute I was done taking pictures, I rubbed my eyes and ended up looking like a panda bear!
The nails… yes the nails! I always thought having nail polish on completes the look and adds a bit of spark and colour burst to everything. Nails Inc polishes are actual light and watery, yet strong and coat well. One coat and the colour appears vibrant. It doesn’t chip off easily either, but then that always depends on how often you do the washing up, gardening and anything that requires your hands (duh!).
