Femme Boulevard: Monochrome

This month, we are doing something monochromatic. We choose a colour, then use different shades of the colour to create a look. There are pinks, corals, oranges, browns, berries, beiges… I hope we’ll all be doing different colours so you can see different versions. I wanted to do something more editorial with berries and deep reds. Well, I really wanted to… but I chose something easier instead. That’s because the post is due in a few hours and I’m pressed for time. Last minute work! LOL! It is something very wearable, something sweet, something I don’t wear very much at all. Pinks.




This is a very simple look. I applied the pink from Dior Rosy Tan eye palette all over my lids and lower lash lines and lined my eyes before applying mascara. This pink is quite brightening, so it doesn’t clash with my skin tone too much. For cheeks, I added Clinique Cheek Pop in Plum Pop and on my lips, a soft pink Clinique Chubby Stick Super Strawberry. Nothing fancy.

And the final look? Here it is.





What do you think? Please remember to check out Lilit’s version. Teri had to pull out last minute due to unforeseen circumstances and Joey will be back in a couple of months. This month, I’m also proud to announce to you that Kate the Driveler will be joining Femme Boulevard!! A round of applause and also please show your support by visiting her and write nice comments 😛 Stay tuned for our next month’s installment!

ps: Yes, I changed my hairstyle. I’ll do a post about it soon 🙂


xoxo Lily



    I did notice the adorable hair in your instagram on the right sidebar 😀 But still *squeal* Um, it’s all the pink making me do that. I have an allergy, okay. <3
    Glad to be on board 😀

      LOL I thought the fringe / bangs are appropriate for this cutesy pink look. Someone just mentioned if this was K-pop influenced. Curls, fringe, pink. BAHAHAHA!!

  • Icaria

    Looooove the hair!!! Easy fast look? Count me in. This is so pretty and totally wearable. 🙂

    • Lily

      Thanks Helene. Yup, this is a very easy look to pull off 🙂

  • Bella

    Is that a new fringe? Never noticed it before! I love the pinks too.

    • Lily

      The fringe… that’ll be the first time I’m showing it here 😛

  • Oh my, aren’t you adorable, Lily!
    Love this look but your new hairstyle looks even better here. 😀

    • Lily

      Aaw, thanks Lena! <3

  • I am in love with your bangs!!! You look so soft and fresh! The pinks are really beautiful on you in a way that’s feminine and romantic.

    • Lily

      Yay! I’m glad you like it – I was aiming for soft and fresh for sure 🙂

  • Hey Lily, love the new hair and the look! Got to get me some of those Cheek Pops!

    • Lily

      Oh Sunny, I hope you’ll like those Cheek Pops too!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Love your bangs Lily! And you know I love pinks so I love this look! And I think you should were pinks more often as they look so pretty on you!

    • Lily

      Well…. I don’t hate the pinks here… and I’ve been wearing this blush/lip combo very much. It brightens my complexion 🙂

  • Bellyhead

    Oooooh! I love everything! Your version of the monochrome is very flattering and I love the new haircut!

    • Lily

      Thank you Belly!! I haven’t had my hair done for over a year, so it was well overdue 🙂

  • You look so cute, Lily! I love your new hair! The pink is very fresh and girly 😀

    • Lily

      “cute”. I’ve been getting that word a lot since my new haircut. LOL!

  • BooBooNinja

    I love the new hair!

    • Lily

      Thanks BooBooNinja!

  • BANGSSS I like! Love this look as well, pinks take some serious effort for me to pull off but you make it look so wearable.

    • Lily

      Thanks MM. Warm pinks are good. Cooler pinks clash like crazy 😛

  • Lily your hair looks awesome! I love the waves, suits you so much! And the pink monochrome looks great, very pretty and wearable.

    • Lily

      Thanks Lilit 🙂 The hair – was time for a change!

  • I like this pinky wearable look. And I adore your new hair, it’s so cute!!
    How is the daily maintenance of the bangs? (Just to have ideas…)
    We both have new hair now, mine is about just above shoulder length which was the result of a hairdressing accident. It does look good but I find it a tad too sleek and neat for my hippy chick self, lol.

    • Lily

      Thx Sofia. Bangs take lots of getting used to. For this post, I covered my forehead but usually, I sweep it to the side 🙂 Minimal maintenance, really. When it annoys me, I clip it up!

  • Cuuuute bangs!!

    • Lily

      Heh. Thanks Catherine 🙂

  • Victoria

    When I saw your bangs on Instagram, I just smiled because you look so adorable. Makes me want to go to the salon to do bangs as well. LOL. But it is always the maintenance part that puts me off. You look lovely in pink and with your new bags, makes you look younger 🙂

    • Lily

      Thanks Victoria. Looking younger is always a bonus 🙂

  • Liz

    You do look adorable with the bangs. 🙂 A lovely, natural look!

    • Lily

      Thanks Liz. I guess bangs make people look cuter and younger. LOL!
