Trend Alert: Team Tortoiseshell Glasses With Red Lips NOW!
I just love this sophisticated look that boasts an air of intelligence and sex appeal. Get the look by pairing oversized tortoise-shell glasses with a bright red lip before sitting back and waiting for the heads to start turning…(well hopefully).
Save – Grab a pair from most chain stores, the markets, or even just pop the lenses out of some sunglasses. As the ‘indie’ trend is as popular as ever, most stores have an influx of styles you can choose from for less than $20. Nice.
Spend – These Jasper Conran specs are too cute and too on-trend. These are the ones I am sporting above and I am loving the contrast between the lightness of my hair with the bright lips and brownish frames. Available at Specsavers, these bad boys will set you back $299.
Splurge – A designer pair of glasses will up the style factor even further with a chic logo subtly spotted on the side of the frames. These Chanel beauties are so classic and chic, and the colour suits most skin tones and hair shades. Available from most Chanel stockists, POA.
Save – Look no further than the most classic of all brands and the most classic of all shades Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick ‘Fire & Ice’ ($21.95). This is one of my all-time favourite beauty products and the colour is so spot on for my colouring (take note fair-skinned gals with blonde hair and blue eyes) and the formula is HEAVILY pigmented and cleverly stays on all day. Big hugs for this fellow.
Spend – As seen on moi in the above pics, L’Oreal Colour Riche Made For Me Intense ‘Red Passion 297’ ($25.95) is an intense shade, specifically made for the bevy of blondes around. That said, my beautiful brunette girlfriend looks absolutely smashing in said shade sooooooo really all girls can apply 🙂 OH AND its super lustrous and makes my lips feel nourished all day!
Splurge – Napoleon Perdis Goddess Lipstick ‘Xenia’ ($35) is a hot pick for many a business woman as it is strong and bold and alludes to their inner sex goddess (whether they want it to or not). I just love this prod and rec using a lip liner brush to really build up the colour and intensity. Start on the outer corners and gently work into the bow areas to achieve a fuller pout.
