So look six (how am I on look six already!?) todays look is a berry lip, dark nails and a pop of blush. Perhaps not the ‘typical’ combination of shades to choose at a time when London is HOTTER THAN THE SUN (possible slight exaggeration) but still, getting out of those ever-present comfort zones is what it’s all about. So today I skipped the predictable summery shades and went for the dark nails and lip combo.
The nails were fine actually – I just made sure to trim my nails so good and short as personally don’t like dark colours on longer nails. The one thing on this shade is with it being darker it did need that extra third coat to really even the colour out. Perhaps not quite as easy a shade to work with as the others I’ve tried to date.
For eyes, I kept it simple and just filled in the brows a little and applied a load of mascara. Brightening the under eye area a little to keep things as fresh as possible as can find darker lip colours enhance any signs of tiredness on me.
The lip colour was the most challenging of the trio of products. Whilst it is a balmy shade this one didn’t quite sit as well on my lips as they are a bit dehydrated so not in tip top condition right now. I felt the darker shade wasn’t quite concealing this as would like. So maybe needed a slick of balm before the shade considering it being darker. Having said that, combined with an otherwise simple look for lashes and cheeks I actually really like the bold lip look. It feels very different for me from the usual day to day, so could be tempted to experiment with other shades!
The blusher FYI is a lovely and very fresh, flattering colour. Def one I’ll be reaching for post trial! I can’t believe it’s the final day seven tomorrow… Any guesses what the last look might be?
