Deep Dark Lippy
This lush picture of Louise Thompson and Spencer Matthews, from E4's Made in Chelsea, reminded me of the deep dark make-up style going on this season. I just love the way plum, burgundy and dark red lipstick has made a come-back. The make-up ties in prominently with the 'fetish' trend this season but on a classy, edgy and sophisticated note.
I've done some experimentation with some of my own make-up. I have a collection of Estée Lauder lipsticks and found that mixing
colours 'rose tea' and 'fig' produced a lovely
deep red colour. I am going to try dark
make-up on my friend this week and take a few
photo's to see if my skills can interpret this
Because I just hate a lipstick rim on a clean drinking glass I avoid
any transferring lipsticks. I know they say 'doesn't come off
for so many hours' but they do. Kate Moss for Rimmel London's
lasting finish lipsticks don't transfer. There is a lovely deep
berry/plum colour that is a must-have. They are available in Boots
and any other retailer which sells Rimmel make-up.
