I started off sugary, sweet and very saturated, now that I have lost all those qualities I'm left with something which starts to look a little more like me. It's a never-ending process of change.
Stick around?

Red Lippy Project

Don't we all get jealous about Movember? All "alpha males" being able to grow their wild moustaches for a good cause! We ladies, unless blessed with the "bearded lady" look couldn't take a part... until now!

 Because now ladies there's Red Lippy Project, a way of spreading the awareness of Cervical Cancer, which takes lives of many women all around the world. Since I took a strong part in the "bold lip" campaign, I though I'd show you what kind of red I wore on my lips everyday between 9th-15th hopefully inspiring you to reach for your favourite red friend next year!

 Day 1 (you might have seen this picture on my instagram page, I though I'd be a good idea to share the first day with you so you could all participate)..
On my lips I wore an iconic now Ruby Woo by MAC (deep and intense, matt shade of lipstick), because what looks better with neutral smoky eye, winged liner and strong contour other than Ruby Woo.

 Day 2 I wore a lip-liner in the shade 231 by Golden Rose, on which I layered Just Bitten Kisseable Balm Stain in Rendezvous. I just though it gave my lips very warm, yet bold look, which paired with simple pop of brown on the eyes and some bronzer on the top of the cheekbones looked especially well.

 Day 3 was all about Mac's Lady Danger, orange shade of red, which is honestly one of my favourite all time lipsticks by Mac. I though that a yellow liner under black liner on the eyes looked really effective with Lady Danger.

Day 4, that day I've reached for more pinky shade of red, which in this case was Trendsetter from the Ultimate Suede collection by Revlon. You all know I love my colourful liners, Urban Decay's Glide on Pencil in Rockstar cooperated with my lips well without it being too much colour on my face.

Day 5 screams: SIMPLE, SIMPLE, SIMPLE! Except for filling my eyebrows in and puling my life together with a lipstick I didn't put anything else on my face. For this special day Iv'e picked Mac Red, by surprisingly MAC. Just a great all around shade, which suits all skin tones.

 Day 6 was a wild one I went for a statement black eyes, which for the balance I paired up with red (obviously) lip gloss in the shade Holly, by Stila.

 And the last 7th day, I decided to go for smoky, smudgy eyes with my all time favourite red lip shade, which has been featured in my monthly favourites and I even did a blog post about it, which I'll link below.. dam dam dam we all know what it is!! Urban Decay's Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Colour in Theodora!
