Hey Lovelies, i've been a lot braver and more experimental with my makeup lately, usually i would have saved the bold lips for nigh time looks, however i've found myself really being drawn to darker more vampy shades and have been wearing a bold lip for normal everyday makeup. 
This face of the day is the makeup i wore yesterday and i really liked how it turned out, i got a few compliments too which is always nice so i thought i share it with you as i want to do start doing more makeup posts. 
I worked the makeup around my favorite lipstick of the moment my dark plum Rimmel moisture Renew lipstick (Review). As its such a dark and vibrant glossy colour and i was doing a daytime look i didn't want too much going on with the eyes so i kept them simple using just two matte shadows from the Soap and Glory quad. 
I applied the lightest cream shade Vanilla all over the lid up to the brow bone and just applied the darkest brown shade Mudhoney into the crease and under the bottom lashes for a bit of definition, i skipped eyeliner and just applied a couple of coats of mascara. 

I hope you liked my face of the day post, how would you wear a bold plum lipstick?

  2. That is an amazing lip colour! I love it!

    I love how you've worn it, I generally keep everything else simple with a nude/gold eye, a bit of blush and let the lips do the talking
