Beauty & The Beige

















































2011 brings in a whole new concept of minimalism, dashed with a splash of colour (most fashionably on the lips or eyelids) Think soft feminine swipes of coral blush on the apples of your cheeks,with a clear lipgloss or nude lipstick. Obviously, this is not the salient trend, and there are slightly more dramatic looks out there. A great example is Freja Beha pictured top left, donning a gorgeous bright red lip. A good tip often used on the runways to intensify a bright lip colour is to outline your lips with a peach or white lipliner/eyeliner to create the illusion of more defined lips (especially on cupid's arrow)

If your going out, why don't you try a layer of mascara on both top and bottom layers (or a clear one during the day) and a swipe of gel eyeliner and mauve eyeshadow for a beautiful, intensified look.
