Hands up if you get stuck doing the same make-up look day in and out?! I must admit I don’t change up my make-up too often. Even though I have lots and lots of different eyeshadow pallets ranging in all sorts of gorgeous colours I tend to stick to my uniform of thick black eyeliner, lashings of mascara and a colourful lip on a daily basis. I wanted to bust out of my make-up rut and put together a face of the day (FOTD) that was bold yet could easily be worn in all situations; be it office or a lunch date out.
I knew how great Wet n’ Wild liners were after Karen bought me one in her amazing gift bag earlier in the year so I wanted to grab some more as we don’t get it here in Oz (if we do can peeps please tell me where it’s stocked!). I bought this Wet n’ Wild eyeliner in Turquoise from Walgreens from my US make-up haul, as I thought I could spice up my usual black eyeliner, and you know what? It’s been sitting in its box ever since I got home. That’s just not good enough! When I picked it out of my stash I instantly knew I wanted to pair it with a fuchsia lip – I just LOVE clashing colours. There’s something about these two colours together that shouldn’t work, but they so do!
I wore this look to a family luncheon and I got two big thumbs up! Everybody loved the green liner – so I’ll just have to wear this more often. Maybe even pair it with an orange lip! Oooooh the possibilities!
What do you think? Are you a fan of mixing clashing, bright make-up or are you a traditionalist and will only wear bright eyes with a nude lip and vice versa?
