I've always been a lipstick over lipgloss person. To me, lipgloss is just annoying and gets stuck to my hair whenever it's windy (which is basically all the time in Manchester). I think lipstick is such a perfect way to make yourself look like you've spent time perfecting your makeup look, especially if you use a bold, bright colour like this one! When you are in a rush and don't have time to complete a full face of makeup, I find that applying lipstick will make you look much more polished and fake that perfect finishing touch, personally I ALWAYS make time to apply my lipstick. A good lipstick can completely transform your face! I'm not the biggest fan of nude and lighter coloured lipsticks, I'm a huge fan of big bold eyes and big bold lips! Why wear lipstick if no one can even tell you've got it on? That's why, for me, this No 7 "Blooming Pink" lipstick is the perfect girly accessory, especially as we (hopefully) start to approach the warmer summer months!
When wearing such a bright pink shade it's important that you tone the rest of your makeup to match.. personally I think this colour goes perfectly with Benefit's "fine one one" cheek applicator (see below posts), as the pinks all compliment each other perfectly! Stay away from dark bronzers and eyeshadows- if you're going for the bold feature lip make sure that is the only make-up focal point on your face or you could end up looking far too over done!
One last note: I keep telling myself to stop doing so many beauty reviews, and get round to showing you some of the gorgeous clothes I've bought recently, but I don't have my trustee sidekick and photographer (i.e. my boyfriend) on hand to take the pictures for me, so watch this space, there will be some FAB fashion reviews and OOTD's here soon!
