Red lips and leopard print…

With the gloomy weather surely there is light at the end of the tunnel? or in my case, my make-up bag?!  Dark days call for a bright pop of colour so I opted for my trusty MAC lip pencil in High energy today and wrapped up in my Topshop leopard print coat.  If you are going to be wearing a red lip, make sure you get rid of any redness first in your face, (especially around your mouth, nose [...]
