On My Face #2

Image

Here is my second FOTD post, the first from way back in October. I am trying to do these sorts of posts more often as I learn to sort out the macro function on my camera. It is incredibly difficult to take detailed pictures of my makeup but I think I have been slowly figuring it out. Hooray for gradually developing camera skills!

A standard look of mine, including some old favourites, some new gems and the Kylie Jenner inspired nude lip look that I cannot stop wearing.

Red Lips: Step By Step

Image

As a red and bright lip lover, I like to consider myself semi-well-experienced in the application of bright and bold lipsticks. Two keywords for a pigmented, long lasting lip: lip pencil.

Click through to check out the lip products that I will be rockinโ€™ all summer long.

My “I’m lazy but I want to be tanned” Routine

Image

As bare leg weather approaches, self-tanners re-emerge from the back of my cupboards to aid in providing some colour to my pale and lifeless legs. When it comes to self-tanning, Iโ€™m pretty much a no frills kind of person and I usually canโ€™t be bothered to deal with anything too high maintenance. I like gradual tanners because they can be applied like a lotion and they provide a nice but not too dramatic tan.
