“Treat your makeup like jewelry for the face.” Francois Nars
Apparently it was National Lipstick Day last Friday! This completely missed me as I was too busy rocking my giant bow and celebating my dad’s birthday (what to get a shopaholic’s father? An amazing shirt of course!) Also every day is lipstick day for me!
A new favourite of mine is Mac’s Flat out fabulous . Mac call it a bright plum but I think it’s more of an orchid colour. It’s one of their retro mattes which is a formulation I like because it stays on my face all day when in work! I always pop some lip balm on too (but I do that with all lipstick) which stops it being too drying.
Yes I did build this outfit around my lipstick and why not?! This colour is so amazing it deserves to be the centre of attention! And as someone asked me if I had had my lips done with this on (in an admiring way not a eeeek trout pout about to explode way!) I think it was a well deserved choice!
