I’m languishing on my sick bed today, so in an attempt to cheer myself I put on a pretty face. Sadly it didn’t work and I’m still feeling sorry for myself, but I managed to snap some photos. Always the pro.
This is the makeup I wear day in, day out. I like to switch up my lipstick (sometimes it’s a Topshop Rio Rio day – amirite?) and swap brown for black in the eyeshadow department, but I’m a creature of habit.
I love big specs (like these Orla Kiely ones) so I try to balance them out with soft makeup. A light, matte base (here I’m wearing Nearly Nude by Revlon which I LOVE) teamed with pink cheeks (Topshop’s Flushed), smoky eyes (courtesy of the Naked 2 palette and a YEARS old Barry M kohl pencil) and a pop of lip colour – Topshop’s Ooh La La.
A fresh, simple everyday look means I can wear the boldest of frames without fear of looking too… ‘too’. What do you think – how do you balance your glasses with your makeup?
