Going for a preppy, sophisticated look.
Top – Primark
Skirt – Topshop
Lipstick – Illamasqua Matte Lip Liquid in Forbidden
The biggest problem for blogging. RAIN! Seeing as it’s been raining non stop for the past few days we were lucky to grab two minutes to take these photos as it calmed down a bit. I’m so excited for longer, sunnier and brighter days.
I decided to go for a matching lipstick and wore my new Illamasqua Matte Lip Liquid in Forbidden. The lipstick dries very matte and full of colour as it’s extremely pigmented. It lasts all day (even after eating which I rarely find) but it has quite a ‘cakey’ texture so I think next time I would wear this just for an evening as it also really dries out the lips.
As my lipstick collection is growing very quickly I am going to start posting more about lipsticks on the blog as well as Instagram (@studdedkissesblog). I’m slowly making my way through different brands and types (mainly matte lipstick/liquid lipsticks) so if you have any recommendations please comment below or tweet me @roxannehs.
I love tartan and plaid skirts and Topshop has such a lovely collection at the moment as it’s back on the style agenda this season. As the pattern can be quite bold it’s best to pair with a basic items to keep the look subtle.
