Monochrome




Hello,

The weather in London was so gorgeous today, I think it’s finally spring!!! Today I went for a more ‘cheap and chic’ look and wore some very inexpensive items that were mostly from Ebay! I’ve been finding it especially difficult to find a red lipstick shade that I felt comfortable with (i.e suits my skin tone). But the other day a total stranger let me in on her secret: wear a purple lipstick base first and then apply the red lipstick on top. I’m super pleased with the result. For this look I chose to wear MAC’s ‘Russian Red’ lipstick on top of Collection 2000’s ‘Scorned’ lipstick. Thank you for visiting and I wish you a lovely week ahead!

  10. I've never heard of that trick before. Is it so that the purple cancels out the darker shades of the red? I'm curious if layering will make other colors pop as well.

    1. Hi Brittney =) The purple cancels out the brightness of the red. I will definitely start mixing lipstick shades and see how it goes! X
