FOTN | Red Lips & Winged Liner

Wednesday, 25 March 2015

I've been wearing the same red lip and black eye liner combo for years. This is always my go-to look when going out and it may not be very adventurous, but it suits such a range of occasions I rarely stray from it.

I tend to prefer darker red lipsticks over orange-y or pink-red tones and this shade is from the L'Oreal Paris Color Riche collection. I don't own a lot of L'Oreal Paris makeup, but I've increasingly picked up more and more Color Riche shades as there's a great range of colours to suit different skintones.

I usually prefer bronzed cheeks with red lips but I was kind of in auto-pilot mode when doing my makeup and applied this everyday coral GOSH blush from my bronzing pie without thinking. This blush is super pigmented so I just went with it but I don't mind the result.
