It’s Berry Problematic

I love love love purple toned makeup any time of the year, but as it’s getting more autumn-y (is that a word?) I’ve been craving the more berry toned lips and it means I get to use of my favourite liquid lipsticks!

To bring the whole look together, I kept the rest of the makeup pretty simple – to keep the attention on my lips. I still wanted the purple vibes to shine through though, so I added a shimmery inner highlight in a gorgeous lilac tone and I am living for it.

It’s definitely inspired me to add some different pops of colour in the inner corner with a wing liner, I just think it’s such a great way to ‘spice up’ your makeup. I’m thinking a khaki toned look next, who’d like to see that?

Don’t forget, I love all of your feedback and if there’s anything you’d like to see from me in the future, please let me know in the comments below!
