So as we all know, Winter and Christmas is the time when everyone whips out the berry/plummy/burgundy shades for their lips, and I've not been an exception for the last two years, but I've realised that this year, I want to do something different.
Wearing a red/bold lip doesn't just make me feel incredibly self conscious "Is it smeared all over my face? Has it spread onto my teeth?!" but it also makes me feel so uncomfortable and become a bit paranoid about wondering if it's smeared all over my face without me realising.
This year, I'm opting for what I feel most comfortable in:
I'm sporting a nude lip.
And no, the simplistic, natural nude lip doesn't have to mean BARE. I'm opting for my favourite lipstick which is MAC Myth, it was a toss-up between this and Honey Love by MAC, but as I'm naturally very pale myself, I wanted something equally pale to subtract away from the fact I've gone for bold shimmery eyeshadow, which has this past month been a mixture of looks created with the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette (YES! I know! I don't 'like' the Naked 2 palette, and since purchasing mine, it has sat redundantly in my draw completely unused, for the year I've had it (I think I've had it a year, maybe it's more?) but at last I've been sporting looks created with this palette.
My favourite shade is 'YDK' a subtle rose/bronze colour (it's peculiar but I have grown to love it) I also didn't mention that my hair is now all over brown and I LOVE IT. I'm honestly considering staying this way permanently. I picked my colour in semi permanent to cover over the green tinted blonde ombre I had, but it just faded super quickly so I grabbed a colour from Boots super quickly (not properly thinking it over) called Warm Reddish Brown (I knew that moment was a mistake!) and at first, this permanent colour was AUBURN, but as it's gently faded, it matches my natural perfectly (in my opnion) because I only covered where the bleach was (from the top of the ears down) and I have naturally ash brown hair with warm reddish tints (AYE I'M HALF SCOTTISH) so I'm super duper happy, the condition is returning and I am just happy with it!
So what lip colour will you be sporting this year?
