purple



I got the inspiration for these photos partly because I was lazy and partly because I wanted to experiment with beauty. My normal beauty routine consists of mascara, mineral powder and concealer, occasionally eyeliner. I rarely go out of my comfort zone as I am not sure how to and these purple-ish lips are about as far as I've gone. I read about how to do them first in Teen Vogue (and modified that a little). I got my Hissyfit berry lipgloss and some dark purple eyeshadow and mixed them up and applied it to my lips with a brush. Not the best technique, but apparently gets a "pigmented" colour. I was much too lazy to do full body shots so wore my new favourite Pink Rogue peter pan collar top which I also featured here. Hope you enjoy my first step at wearing bold makeup.

I really hate lip gloss and lipsticks because they're annoying on my lips :S
