Red lips and easy basics


Hi Lovelies,

As I'm doing such a lot of running around today, I kept things simple and comfortable. Go to basics are fantastic when paired with a bright lip, it gives a laid back and very 'lived in' vibe.






  • I have used the MUA Heaven and Earth Palette, with Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner on my eyes.
  • I have used Chanel Fantasia Blush and the Sleek Contour Kit on my cheeks.
  • On my lips is Illamasqua's Drench.

I hope you've had a good day,  I know it's Monday so that's generally hard, but here's hoping!

  47. So glad you shared which eyeliner you use, as I have been looking for a good, intense liner that can give a defined shape. Off to buy one this weekend. MAY just have to snatch up the Llamasqua lipstick too. :)
