For my birthday last year, one of my favorite gifts were these J. Crew magenta-colored leather gloves from my lovely friend, Rahela:
I love this color so much, ever since I got them, I’ve been inspired to go on a hunt for a perfect fuchsia/magenta colored lipstick that doesn’t look horrible on darker skin tones.
Alas, finally found the one, and it’s from none other than Lime Crime’s makeup line, which I featured previously here.
They sent me a few lip colors to try, and I was so excited when I saw that their Centrifuchsia matched the gloves perfectly!
I tried it out, and it’s such a beautiful dark pink without the blue undertones that usually clashes with darker complexions. And, not to mention, one that doesn’t channel the old school auntie look (you know what I’m talking about). It’s really pigmented with just a little bit of shine. So in love.
I usually don’t wear bold lip colors, but this one is so pretty and fun. Me thinks it’s perfect for changing it up this season.
My fellow makeup junkie, Hana, and I were commiserating over how many YouTube makeup videos and tutorials are way too long. So, she took matters into her own hand and made her very first makeup video about her five most worn makeup items….check it out:
OK, so here are mine (and probably not surprising, almost all which I’ve done posts on before!):
2) Motives Pressed Blush in So Peachy – I used this for the first time in my Italy trip and it’s my new love. It’s highly pigmented so a little goes a long way, and brightens better than a bronzer so you look more awake.
