A Ravishing Rose…


It seems we are miles away from having some lovely sunny weather. The past couple of days, all we have had here in the United Kingdom, is sunshine, but extremely low temperatures. We seem to have had all the seasons in one day at one point. I remember being sat at my desk and going from brilliant sunshine, to dark cloudy skies, to thunder lightning rain and what appeared to be snow…

As unpredictable as the British weather is, 20 minutes later, we were back to having sunshine again.

It has been deceptively cold today, something which I have taken a great disliking to. Thankfully Sunday was warmer than the past couple of days and I took to the park to bask in the sunshine and took a few snaps to capture, what may just be the only sunshine we will have this year 🙂

 Outfit Details:

Waterfall Cardigan – Cutie – designer from Debenhams, Black Vest -Primark, Black Maxi skirt – New Look, Red Belt – New Look, Watch – Michael Kors, Sunglasses – New Look Cat-eye style.

I was inspired by the glorious weather, which as you gathered doesn’t come too often in Britain. I’ve had dreams about my how I was going to rock my new Avon lipstick and this was an absolutely perfect moment to showcase it!

With my idea in mind, I chose an all in all simple outfit as I only wanted one showstopping item to feature most. I am a huge fan of black and white, monochrome is my favourite trend; something I gravitate towards in everything fashion, style and homeware too. I chose red as my accent colour and decided to pair my bold lip colour with a charming red belt and it all came together nicely.

So here’s what I used on my face, just in case you too would like to recreate this look:

Foundation: M.A.C Matchmaster Shade 8.5

Eye Brows: Sleek Brow Kit – Dark

Eyes: M.A.C Eyeshadows – Sable (on the lid & tear duct), Embark (for definition)

Eye Liner: NYC Liquid Liner & Avon’s Glimmerstick

Blush: Sleek Demerera from the Sugar Blush by 3 palette

Contour & Highlight : Sleek Contour Kit – Dark

Lips: Avon’s Ravishing Rose.
