Nude pout/LOTD

Hello my little puddings!

So, with the rain pelting down outside, and Broc walked and tired, I thought now was a good time to show you my nude lip.Lip of the day. πŸ˜‰ Finally huh?

Image

I have sooooo many pink and red shades of lipstick, that I invested in 2 shades to create a nude lip. (The nude lip is a very personal thing) some people like having it very soft/blended out from the shape of the lips and no lip liner, whileΒ others still like it to be defined yet with the soft colours, I guess I fall in to that category.

I love the soft colour itself, but want to still have definition blah blah blah. So, I bought a L’oreal lipstick (Nude ingenue/501) and a cheap miss sporty lipstick in the shade “I’m sweet/007”. As well as a lip liner by Rimmel in “Tiramisu/050”

Image

Image

It looks quite purple here, but it’s a light/medium warm brown hinted nude colour in real life. πŸ™‚

Image

I love the packaging of this L’oreal lipstick! Probably part of the reason I bought it to be honest πŸ˜‰

Image

This is the Miss sporty “I’m sweet” It’s in a plain navy blue bullet. Very simple looking. The shade is quite a pinky nude, and very light when applied. Perfect for layering it over other colours, (oh and it smells of watermelon, which I didn’t expect. Yummy!)

Image

I swatched both colours, the miss sporty at the top, and the L’oreal at the bottom. You can see very clearly the difference in shades and base tones to these two colours. But when worked together magic happens. I’m not sure I’d wear the miss sporty “I’m sweet” on it’s own?? It is pale, and might be hard to work with by itself.

Image

I used the Rimmel lip liner to outline my lips, and fill in the actual lip, about half way in. I then applied the L’oreal all over my lips. The texture is gorgeous, applies like a dream, and non drying at all… and at the moment I have problems with my lips in winter, even with lip balm on. (so sorry for some of the photos) ugh. But I was dying to do this nude lip, soooo πŸ™‚

Afterwards I glided the miss sporty over the centre of my bottom and top lip, almost like a highlight, and then blended.

Image

I forgot to apply lip gloss to finnish it off. I actually always have a matte lip, but I think the gloss adds a little oompf with a nude pout, so feel free to get some clear/crystal or even a soft coloured gloss to put over your lips when done. Infact, I might invest in a glittery/crystal gloss, and try this look again πŸ˜‰ Would anyone want to see the outcome when I do, let me know?!

Well, this is soooo toned down for me! I love pinks,red and vampy reds on my lips, but I have to say I think this nude may be a new addition to my look. I’ll have to wear it on a night out, with smokey bold eyes, I think the two would contrast and complement each other brilliantly. (I feel FOTD coming on soon!) πŸ˜‰

What do you think about nude lips? How would you wear them? Let me know in the comments!

Stay beautiful

FOTD and wish list

Hey my lovely puddings!

Phew, I’ve been on non stop go since having Broc (my new australian shepherd puppy) he just turned 13 weeks old on tuesday. He is such a blast! (I’ll add some photos of him at the end of this post) πŸ™‚

Now, isn’t all this sunshine in the UK great? Heatwave! Everything is so summery now. I love it. The hottest day so far was at 30 degrees C.

FOTD (face of the day) time. I’ve gone for a gold smokey-ish eye, with the classic winged eyeliner. (I’d be dead without my eyeliner). hahaha. I then paired this with a sultry soft red lip.

Image

The gold eyeshadow has a subtle hint of shimmer, and so really sparkles out in the sunshine, perfect for summer! πŸ˜€

I thought I’d put together a little wish list of the current things I’m pining over, seeing as I have no money and have been longing over stuff I can’t have. It’s always the case with me… πŸ˜›

EOTD/FOTD “Desert eyes”

Hey puddings,

Time for my eye of the day/face of the day! So, lets get right to it. I call this eye look “Desert eyes” because I was inspired by the colours you may find in a desert, golds, warm browns as well as hints of green. Enjoy! πŸ˜€

Image

Image

I’m always trying to make statement, so I feel very comfortable wearing this eye makeup as a day time look, I do think you could also wear this as a night time look as well…

Image

Image

So, voila! There you go my lovlies. I’m also wearing the Gosh foundation that I featured in a past haul…see, it’s so pale/light! Perfect.

I also applied a hint of blusher, MUA ”Primrose” from their Artiste palette. The lipstick I’m wearing is a very soft shimmery pink, which is from Avon cosmetics, in the colour “Pink pop”.

The eye shadows themselves, are a combination of colours I mixed up myself from various palettes I have. Just comment if you want to know what I used for a specific colour. πŸ™‚

I’m also being a featured ‘blogger of the week’ starting next week, for a fashion trends site I follow… I’m actually about to go and take some outfit photos for that, so I best get going! How exciting. πŸ˜€ Stay tuned for a post about that as well.
