Do you also have certain colours that remind you of a friend? It happened to me a while ago, I saw this gorgeous fuschia shade and immediately thought of my dear friend Suzan. It's not just that I know she'd love the shade, but that for me the colour fuschia is synonymous to her and even looking at it makes me smile at the memories. It's lovely to have reminders of your friends and loved ones surround you like that, especially since I'm so far away from most of them.
Anyway, when I saw this gorgeous lipstick colour I immediately smiled and just had to take it with me. It looked a bit scary in the tube, but transformed into a very flattering fuschia on the lips. I'm in love! And I simply just had to make a look to go with it.
as usual. I didn't feel like wearing a foundation or BB-cream, so I just patted a bit of concealer on my blemishes and left it at that.
I contoured my cheek area with my Sleek Contour Kit in 'Fair' and used my beloved LOOK Blush in 'Flush' as a blusher. I also used Mememe's highlighter in Pearl Pink on my cheekbones and nose for a healthy glow.
On my lips I used my new Revlon lipstick in Wild Orchid, which to be honest didn't convince me at first. The colour looked pretty frosty and garish, but when I swatched it on my hand I was pleasantly surprised.
And this is the whole look! I love wearing bright colours on my lips, especially in the summer. Which lipsticks are your summer favourites?
