I don’t wear red lipstick much anymore, it made me feel too much like the old me from my early solo days – well that is until I recently tried the new NARS African Red. It’s perfect, not too bright with more of a blue undertone for a warmer appearance. The look: a classic strong brow (brow maintenance is a must) and cat-eye with black liner, which are two of my favorite beauty signatures and NARS Zen (blush) on my eyes; chic with just a touch of attitude! I pulled my hair back in a chignon – the rain gave it texture if you know what I mean.
I have a longstanding appreciation for classic Hollywood glamour since I was a little girl. Can we say Sophia Loren? There are so many women of that era whose style I admired even without realizing it as a little girl; and still do. A lot of my imagery has at different times been influenced by the classics.
Don’t be afraid to try new colors and products when you have to free time, or while browsing the aisles of your favorite beauty supply store or boutique. Have fun update your look – if you don’t like it just wash it off, it’s only make-up!
I snapped some pics for Instagram, just having fun on a rainy day this weekend – this is one.
