Ahh nature… the soft delicacy of a petal, its warm, rich and inimitable colours, the crunch of that leaf under foot. You all know what I’m talking about right? The beautiful change of season we experience here in the UK.
JK. Jeez, we all know that leaf thing is a rare obsession we get to carry out, they’re all soggy where I am. And inimitable colours? Please. What was make up invented for, if not to brighten your face once the weather gets dull. Honestly, thank God I’m here for you.
Today, we’re bringing shine and colour to our faces through the use of our lips, the easiest place to add colour without trying too hard. Sounds good to me. Laura Mercier have just released their new Crème Smooth Lip Colour, so full of moisture that your only need one sweep across your lips to complete your look. Also containing Olive Oil and Vitamin E to nourish lips, they double as lip salve too in their modern metal finish cases.
Two favourites that don’t over power the face are Spiced Rose and Antique Pink. Or if you want to add more of a pop colour, head straight for Mango- a warm mix of pink, red and orange that will stand out against the grey skies.
