When you attempt to get your ‘Britains Next Top Model’ orrrn! 😛
As you guys already know, I’m not a beauty blogger/ vlogger/ guru type. In fact, if you ask any of my girls they will tell you that I’m notoriously average at all things makeup related and have a very quick and unimpressive makeup routine which involves lots of fingers and minimal brush usage. The only exception is my lipstick collection which is colourful, varied and plentiful! I’m a massive fan of lipsticks as opposed to gloss as my lips are not the same colour all over (my upper lip is darker than the bottom) so need ensure full coverage. I recently tried out the new spring palette of Burberry lipsticks in Military Red, Sepia, and Nude Beige – my first time using their products. A good red lip will add an instant touch of glamour to any outfit (and a bad one will make you look like an out of work childrens clown), this Military Red doesn’t disappoint. The Sepia was a bit of a surprise as it looks as though it would be darker than it was once applied. Thinking it was more of a burgandy I opted for a black and tan outfit to compliment. However, It is actually a lovely rose pink tone which worked just as well. Finally, the Nude beige lip colour is a brilliant nude but a tad too light for my complexion. I looked like a bad Dave chapelle impersonator (Think Tyrone Biggums in heels).
For swatches, outfit details and a close up of how the lipsticks appear in natural light check out the mini lookbook I filmed below. Please excuse the excessive pouting – It is a lipstick lookbook after all. I fear I am becoming the Vicky Beckham of blogging – I do smile – honest!
Special thanks to Ashanti Brazil who sent me this amazing cobalt blue draped front dress. My Starr almost had a heart attack when he saw me in it! Guaranteed jaw dropper for date night ladies so grab yours before they sell out! x
