‘Twas the first week of October and the spicy smelling candles were lit. The pumpkin spice lattes were brewing and the blankets were a hit. The return of the dark lipstick was about to take place and here I’ll show you, how to make it work for your face.
Okay, wow. That was something of a delight right – maybe I should become a poet in my spare time – no?
Anyway, the point I’m trying to make is that it’s become colder and as the jumpers start to make a comeback, the baby pinks are getting put aside for the deeper plum toned lipsticks.
I decided what better way to say a big hello to Autumn that posting this gorgeous dark lipped look. I’d love to know what your ultimate favourite dark lipstick is, mines potentially this lipstick mixture combined or just each one alone is also a winner! Maybe I’ll do a look with them individually soon – who knows?!
