Femme Boulevard: Season Appropriate Look

So you see… the members of Femme Boulevard are thrown all round the world and we get different seasons. So we decided to go ahead to do season appropriate looks, wherever we are. I am in Malaysia, a tropical country. It’s hot and humid all year round, sometimes we get more rain, sometimes we get more sun. Does it mean I’m stuck with summery look my entire life? Heck no! I like my nudes, brights and vamps. I like variety and let me just say it again, I’ve NEVER been good with makeup rules.

For this, I decided to show you how different lipsticks can take you from season to season wherever you are. 1 look, 4 BOLD lipsticks for Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Sounds good? Well, I thought it was a good idea anyway πŸ˜› Here are the products used:

 

products used

 

Basically, I used the browns in the UD 15 Anniversary Palette on my eyes. For blush, I used Burberry Light Glow Peony Blush for Spring, Fall and Winter, and I used NARS Orgasm for Summer. For lips, I used Estee Lauder Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer 06 Melting Sun (orange for Summer), Bobbi Brown Art Stick Bright Raspberry (pink for Spring), Dior Addict Extreme Black Tie and Dior Gloss Ensorcelante (vamp for Fall), and lastly, Guerlain Luxure (red forΒ Winter. Heck, red is for all seasons, but red is good to add some life to the cold). Here are the swatches for your reference. L –> R: Melting Sun, Bright Raspberry, Black Tie, Ensorcelante, Luxure.

 

lippy swatches

 

And here I am, girl of all seasons. LOL! For the eyes, you can always add more bronze for summer, a dash of pink for spring, reddish browns / burgundy for fall and some pale gold for winter. Or, go mostly nude like what I did here, make the brows more defined and it goes with all lip colours πŸ˜›

 

Spring Summer Fall Winter

 

Please check out what the rest of my buddies have in store for you. Joey can’t join us because she’s under the weather, so let’s wish her well. I hope you enjoyed this! What is your go to look for each season?

  • You cheat! lol πŸ˜€ You’re a girl after my own heart, and I love all four bright lipsticks on you but summer is my favourite. Maybe because you just look especially cheeky in that picture πŸ˜‰

    • Lily

      Hahaha! Well, we didn’t say just one season… and I really couldn’t just pick one >_< I really like that orange too! Surprisingly, it doesn't make me look like one πŸ˜›

  • I think I love the fall combo the most! I’m really getting into vampier berry shades for the moment!

    • Bella

      In that case you MUST check out Nars Damned Satin Lip Pencil. And Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet something something in Nocturnal. The first’s an old fave, the second the postman brought this week and it’s *lurve*.

      • Thanks so much for the recommendations, Bella! I’m definitely going to look into those. I was a bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to vampier berries, but Givenchy Poupre Inoui opened a new window for me πŸ™‚

    • Lily

      Love darker berry shades! I wish I could wear them every day but I also like my variety πŸ™‚

  • Bella

    I like Spring and Fall the best, great twist on the challenge :D. I am off to check out the others too :). (Funny how Bright Raspberry looks a lot more luminous fuschia on me!!)

    • Lily

      I know – some lipsticks tend to look different on different skin tones, and I think it’s awesome!

  • Love all the colours on you! It’s amazing how a change of lip colour can evoke such a different feeling!
    For summer I think I like something orange/apricot too.
    Spring,something pink or lilac.
    Fall, dark brick red or berry stain.
    Winter, reds for the win!

    • Lily

      Oh yes, dark brick reds are super sexy! Great choices, Noodles πŸ™‚

  • That Dior gloss on you is AMAZING. It’s like it was made for you!

    • Lily

      Thanks Tracy. I layered it on top of Black Tie for a more berry base. Otherwise it’s even darker!

  • I’m undecided between Spring and Fall! Although my undying love for berry shades nudges me to pick the Fall look if I really HAD to choose. πŸ™‚

    • Lily

      I think berries flatter many people and it’s one of my favourites as well πŸ™‚

  • BOOM, LILY. I love them all! I think my favorites are the summer and fall one, though! Melting Sun is fantastic. So is Ensorcelante! I should have bought that one :X

    • Lily

      You have to try Melting Sun, Larie! Orange is your colour. Too bad Ensorcelante is a limited edition huh?

  • I love this, Lily – such a cool idea! You look amazing in your Fall & Winter lipsticks – but then vamps, berries and reds are always my favorite πŸ™‚

    • Lily

      Thank you Monika πŸ™‚ Reds are such pick me ups and berries are just sexy!

  • Le Genou de Claire

    I love these lipsticks variations, it captures the essence of each seasons perfectly!

    • Lily

      Aaw, thank you very much πŸ™‚

  • Dear Lily, I love the idea of having a basic eye makeup and changing the lipstick for the season. How well can you wear all those colors, wow! Since I am very restrictive with my lipstick picks, this is so impressive to me.

    • Lily

      Hi Sara, I can see you wearing so many different lip colours though. Bold lipsticks are fun but definitely not as wearable πŸ™‚ The theme is there so their sheerer counterparts might be more popular. Lol!

  • Hi Lily, what a great post and you look great in each look! In summer I go for bronzey eyes and coral lips and cheeks. In winter I go for grey smokey eyes and more pinky toned lips and cheeks. In spring and autumn I transition in weird ways…hehe By the way I LOVE how your blog looks! xx

    • Lily

      Thanks Sofia! I’m now curious about your weird transition looks. Lol πŸ™‚ How have you been?

      • Haha, with the weird transition looks, I think it’s more of the fact that I get more tanned in summer (and I also think my skin takes on a more golden undertone) so sometimes the colours I wear don’t look quite right because I haven’t thought about “the transition”, if that makes sense. I’m doing ok πŸ™‚ How are you going along? How many months are you now??

        • Lily

          LOL OK, I get you. I’m due end November so it’s just 2 months to go. Belly is getting in the way of everything, so it’s about time the baby comes out πŸ™‚

          • Exciting! Your girls must also be excited πŸ™‚

            • Lily

              They are! They love to feel the baby kick πŸ˜›

  • Ughhh dude your spring lip is too pretty!! And the makeup itself transitions so well — I can totally imagine it fitting in during each and every one of these four seasons.

    • Lily

      Thanks dude. Brighter pinks like this flatter my skintone more. I find those paler pinks wash me out like no tomorrow.

  • How gorgeous, Lily! <3 Love all seasonal colors on you. How can you pull off all sides of the spectrum so well like this? (Ugh, jealous!!)
    Dior Black Tie is one of my favorite autumnal vamp colors, too. It is so wearable and flattering. πŸ™‚

    • Lily

      Thanks Lena πŸ™‚ I guess it’s because they’re all bold colours and bold seems to agree with me. Black Tie is great on its own, but with Encorselante on top, the colours deepen to a dark vampy grape πŸ™‚

  • silverkis

    Dammit, i wanna kiss you! Why do all the colors look so good on you?? Cool tones, warms, brights, darks… jealous like crazy!

    • Lily

      LOL Linda. They aren’t THAT different… most of them pull warm. Surprisingly, even the cooler bright pink that has flashes of fuchsia and blue is more neutral than I thought πŸ™‚

  • Jaa

    You look great in all colors but I personally love love love the Spring look!!! Now I want to buy the BB Bright Raspberry! Thanks to you, haha! Amazing how just changing the lipstick color can do to your makeup. πŸ™‚

    • Lily

      Aha! That’s why it’s important to have as many different shades of lipsticks as possible… says this Lipstick Bandit. LOL!

  • Liz

    My fave look is spring as well – so brightening and cheerful! This makes me miss the Lipstick Bandit projects.

    • Lily

      I miss Lipstick Bandits assignments too *sob*
