Have you seen the Beauty Opener on page 161 of the January issue of ELLE (on sale today)? The look is fresh and modern, see
Pink lipstick and I have a give/take relationship they give and I take, and it works just fine for both of us. I rely on it to perk me up on a weekly (if not daily) basis when Im feeling tired or generally run down and it doesnt ask for anything in return.
Sure enough, once Ive taken my #TrialATrend of the J. JS Lee look into the new #ELLEPhotobooth, Im head-over-heels for the vivid fuchsia shade. Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick in Courtisane, £25, is creamy, easy to apply and on just the right side of statement whilst still being office-appropriate. I can tell were going to get on very well indeed come Spring/Summer 14.
White eye make-up on the other hand? We dont get on quiet so well. I often use the old trick of tracing my water line with a flesh-coloured liner to counteract redness and to brighten (works a treat for disguising hangover eyes) but when I try the stark white liner it has an adverse effect, drawing attention to my computer screen eyes (read: bloodshot and dry).
Next time, Ill pair with a nude eye-liner, a slick of black mascara and plenty of pearlised highlighter on my cheekbones.
