Subtle ombre sunset lip

Recently, I’ve been reminiscing about the Illamasqua Ombre pink lip, I created around this time last year! Consequently, it was only a matter of time before I tested out a new one! Seeing as we’re currently in a slight transitional, seasonal period, it can be a little tricky knowing what to wear, let alone what lip colour to rock! So, as a salute to Summer…as, let’s face it, Mr Sunshine has definitely not got his hat on anymore, I decided to create a subtle sunset ombre creation.

Using x4 of my favourite lipsticks, as well as a lip liner and a dap of eyeshadow shimmer, this look can be created in under 5 minutes, with ease! Making sure your lips are marvellously moisturised, simply line them with your nearest, darkest colour and work the lipsticks in from there! I wanted to create an almost metallic/light reflecting effect, upon the lightest part of the lip, so for this I used my perviously stated gold eyeshadow cream formula eyeshadow, (this one was from illamasqua) – proving great versatility, within a product, most would only imagine being good for one purpose!

I love this subtle look. I can imagine wearing it on some of the last Summer Evenings, we’ll hopefully encounter. I also like how it matches my red sparkly dress, (of course I planned that one) and new ombre hair! If you’ve created similar looks this Summer, or are experimenting with lip colours for fall already, let me know in the comments below. I’d love to know!

Cool toned, textured Winter Fashion

There’s no denying that I adore Autumn, Winter…predominantly due to its gorgeous Fashion season and crispy, fresh mornings! So, what better way to get more acquainted with the developing season, than by posting an appropriate Fashion Post, from the outdoors of my own wonderful, leaf crunching garden!

I’m a huge fan of simple textures, features and subtle embellishments upon all sorts of Fashion garments and I find it particularly intriguing and exciting when two or three textures come together, to form one fabulous over all look. The inner stylist in me lives for experimentation, creative/alternative ideas and general ‘play’ arounds of different types of outfits. So, when I opened my wardrobe this morning, I decided to specifically look for something that would work really well for this time of year, yet put together something with a little more umph and strike to the eye!

There were a few items that jumped out at me the most today, and those were the features of studs, spikes and faux fur! These aren’t normally the standard ‘go to’ items that I grab for an every day look, however today was different. Consequently, I threw on my trusty pair of leggings, (as I wanted to involve a level of comfort) and began to put together a few items. As you can see by the images below, my choices were, like stated previously, comfort based, with a hint of snuggly, fresh colours and textures!

I decided to pair an ombre coloured grey & cream jumper, featuring embellished, faux leather, studded shoulder pieces, with a bright faux fur turquoise ‘tube scarf’…both items from Topshop! These items displayed cool tones of similarity and actually went together really well. I could imagine this looking really eye-catching, in the height of snow season…Ooh I can just see that crisp, white snow falling around the striking hues of blues and looking just marvellous! 😀

It’s easy putting together items that are totally different. I find that garments like this can be easily pulled together with a monotoned or more subtle trouser/legging and boot. In terms of my Makeup today, I decided it would be nice to get a cooler toned berry lip on the go, with some striking glitter eye liner as a friendly accompaniment.

If you’ve put together some cool, textured garments lately, that are perfect for this Autumn/Winter season, what have they been?…i’d love to see them! :)
