Weekend Red Lips & Hairstyle

M.A.C Lady Danger

After my depotting frenzy, I managed to get a lot of empty MAC eyeshadow pots (Hurrah!) so I can go and swap 6 of them for a free lippie from MAC! I got myself a coral red lipstick M.A.C's Lady Danger and it's so vibrant! I tried it on straight away on the train back home and realised I still had my blue Shu Uemura gel liner on. My fiance said I looked like the Joker! haha!

So only wear red lipstick with very simple eye makeup- or you'll look like a clown:) Unless that's the look you want!
Here is Christina Aguilera with her signature red lipstick and blonde hair look. Classic but not boring!

How can I not mention Gwen? Queen of red lips!

I was looking at MAC's Rubywoo but I thought Lady Danger was more suited to my skin tone. Rubywoo is a gorgeous red lipstick too in a matte formula.


And the hairdo I tried out today is a copycat from a magazine. It's a hairdo straight from the runway by Carolina Herrera.



Here is a summarised steps on how to do the "Roll" from the mag:
Part your hair on the side and take the front section of the hair and twist it backwards into a thin roll, pinning your hair as you go. Repeat this on the other side of your head and then you tie your hair into a low pony or a bun. Doesn't have to be perfect!


Sorry you can't see my hair properly since my hair is so dark! But I did mine in a ponytail.

Red lips suit you great dear! Lady Danger has a nice blue undertone to it. I was thinking of getting it myself, though MAC lipsticks tend to be drying on me, haha. That hairstyle is so pretty and looks great for spring. I'll try that once I grow out my hair, lol.
