Retro Inspired FOTD

(Excuse the bemused expression and scruff of babyhair).
I've been wearing my hair in its natural curly state this week, so I thought what better to team soft curls with, than retro make-up.
This look never fails to make me feel glam, and whenever I'm having a particularly bad and cruddy day, I slick on some red lipstick and I'm ready to face the day.

Oh, by the way, what do you prefer for FOTD, pictures of products used, or just text?


  1. Your hair is lovely like that! That basically is my everyday look, I used to make a bit more effort and do the whole eyeshadow, black winged gel liner, red lip she-bang every single day, but I've totally gotten lazy and now I just do a bit of dark brown eyeshadow for liner and Lady Danger, or sometimes Russian Red on my lips.

  2. @Aiofe, thank you. I know it does take a bit of effort, but it glams up any outfit. Oh, I'd love to try Russian Red x

  3. WOW you look amazing! I am new to your blog and i am just going through your past posts to get to know you a bit more :) This a beautiful classic look and you totally suit it, i have got serious eyebrow envy hehe!! I have got so lazy with my makeup but to brighten myself i like to put on a bright lipstick i love wearing red but recently i have been wearing dark plum/purple colours i am just in love with these colours and they are great for the winter season. Do you own any purple/plum/berry lipsticks? If you do it would be great to see a look from you!! xxx

  4. @BabyNat, aww, thank you very much hun, how sweet :)
