One of my favourite things to do when I am out shopping is get amongst the lippy shade isles. I always go in with visions in my head of how a colour will look on me, based on what I have seen on-line, in a magazine or on a celebrity. That is half the fun. Lets face it, we all want perfect pouty lips. There is just something about a lipstick shade that adds edge to an everyday outfit.
As I am fair skinned with blonde hair, generally I go for the lighter, paler shades of pink and apricot for the everyday, down to earth, easy going look. I guess it all depends on my mood. If I am out on the town and feeling playful and daring, I love wearing bold colours like cherry red, vibrant purples or fuchsia pinks. If I want to feel strong and empowered, a dark maroon or deep mauve will help me do so every time.
This season I will be testing out Maybelline’s new colour palette, as it is right up my alley. Playful pinks, soft corals and sexy plums will definitely match my moods and pair nicely with my winter wardrobe. Added bonus? Our very own talented Jeremy Somers has collaborated with Maybelline, to design this seasons lipstick cases. So not only are the colours divine, the casing is sleek and sexy.
Obviously beauty is not skin deep and it what is on the inside that counts. But I am a firm believer that how you present yourself is a reflection of your inner beauty and individual personality. The beautiful Gwyneth Paltrow once said ‘Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick ass red lipstick.’ And how right she is.
What shade will you be choosing this season?
