Colour Block Lips

Hey All,

Today’s post is brought to you by the colour orangy-red and the word minimal.

I’ve spent the last two years going hyper on eye make-up. Lashings of gel, liquid and Kohl eye-liner and tonnes of smoky eye-shadow. I fancy a change, and it comes courtesy of Gucci, Fendi, and Diane von Furstenberg (SS11) and Hakaan (AW11) .

It’s not pretty, pale or subtle orange; it is IN (ON) YOUR FACE ORANGE!!! Bright and neon and I-can-see-you-from-across-the-street orange. Because lips are so strong, eye make-up is at a minimal though I dig the fierce brow that balances out the look, (see Hakaan below) worn with little or no mascara.

I like the idea of clear mascara for daytime and plain black for night.

The perfect tangerine shade at Fendi (SS11)

Glossy at Gucci (SS11)

    Oh Freja, I could stare at her face all day! Tis a scary trend as trends go. Even though when other people wear it i never think ‘that persons teeth arent perfectly white,’ when it comes to me I can never go through with it in public. No matter how much the girl at MAC says ‘this one is blue based so its very flattering to teeth.’ Need to whiten these gnashers.

      Hey Molly!
      I’m so with you on Freja!
      I also totally agree that it’s a bit of a scary trend, Orangey-red is a pretty fierce colour, it’s a deeper shade of that kind of late 80’s coral shade that looks a bit dated now I think. But honestly it’s way easier than you think, I just started wearing this shade in the last week or so and I’m obsessed already!… go on I double dare you! Xx
      But boo hiss on the MAC girls… Blue-based red lipsticks make your teeth look MORE yellow, it’s the most unflattering shade! Orangey-toned red lipsticks work in the opposite way! Hooray! Everyone’s a winner! Xxx

    Love the colour. It’s all about the minimalistic eyes, makes those lips just pop out!
