Because I am so excited about my new blog and the feedback off my blog was quite amazing I decided to share another post.
In South Africa – Winter is nearing an end, it’s still however far too cold to say Spring is almost here. They say colours are everything.
My Opinion – Darker colours seem to be a winter colour. Black, Navy, Burgundy, Khaki, and so on. But why not push it and wear white – I always wanted to an Ice Queen. Won’t Brighter colours brighten up your day. I say wear a lighter shade of lipstick, maybe put on a white shirt tomorrow morning. Rock some colours. Be daring – Go against the grain. Or don’t. But do you.
So Here goes my TOP 3 .
Fall Lip colours.
I would say the most used colours this winter would be more along the lines of Rich Burgundy’s and Deep Plum’s.
My Fave : REVLON Colourburst – Matte Balm – number 215 – Shameless. This one give’s you a deep mysterious look. Stole this one from my sister.
Secondly I think would be your mixed neutrals, pink blush and nudes – It’s a very safe colour, especially if you’re in a hurry. Nude’s go with Darker and Brighter Colours.
My Fave : ESSENCE Longlasting Lipstick – number 05 – cool nude. This is a definately bargain.
And then thirdly – Rose pinks and fuchsia’s.
For this one – I definitely mix my colour’s.
I use: REVLON Colorburst – Matte Balm – number 220 – Showy flamboyant and number 250 standout Remarquable. You could call it a purple-ish-Fuschia.
And Ofcourse I know we all get winter Lips (chapped, extra dry lips).
Both Of these Smell great and are translucent – If you cannot go without a lip color – You could always put this underneath it.
Maybelline – Baby Lips – Hydrate.
Labello – Lip Butter – Blueberry Blush
Also – You could always just use a Baby petroleum Jelly. Works wonders.
So I tend to go against the grain when it comes to following trends – I like to do my thing. Follow my own path – if that makes sense.
Lets get to Nail Colours –
So for those who know me – I am obsessed with good looking nails. No shade to young ladies and women who don’t get their nails done. But I’d just feel incomplete without my nails. I always like to experiment with shapes, lengths, colours, designs. Not Sure if I have all the post nail pictures. But I will include some stage. Also in these pictures you’ll see my colour choices don’t exactly fit the colour trends.( alil secret – I have fat fingers – so I get my nails done so that people are drawn to my nails and not my fingers. haha)
Below – The Nail Situation right now – This is called Calming Lavender – (more on the pink side though) . P.S – These are my own nails, I just do an acrylic Overlay and a gel or nail colour. No sparkle , But I did do them in Matte. I love Matte – Think that would be a current Trend.
