Last couple of weeks were experimental. I tried mixing different lip colours, perhaps making bold colours more wearable in the day. I kept my face minimal, with neutral blush and eye liner, and just played with lippies. I’m still trying to use up this Shiseido base and I think there’s probably another month to go. I powder with the Diornude Sculpt Powder and I’m happy to show you some pan 🙂
One of my favourite neutral blushes has to be Tarte Exposed. My skin tone tends to make pinks more prominent, and since the pink in Exposed is minimal, it’s a great neutral for me. For the eyes, I’ve been enjoying Diorshow Art Pen and Estee Lauder Two Tone mascara.
Of my lippy combination experiments, these are a couple that I like. I love Shiseido Perfect Rouge Sublime on its own. It’s a complex colour that looks different on everyone. On me, it looks like a pink coral. I mixed it with Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Curviest Caramel and I get a great nude coral. Guerlain Gigolo is a dark bold plum and it can be a bit too dramatic for a conservative office environment. I mixed it with Revlon Mauve It Over and voila! I get a subdued work appropriate colour that is mauve beige. Interesting!
Here, I am wearing Shiseido Sublime on its own, experiment 101 and experiment 102.
Do you mix and match and get your customized lip colour? What’s your favourite? I hope you enjoyed this post! It was fun experimenting 🙂
