Ok, yes, I am guilty of wearing mostly black + white year round, and it’s the rare occasion that I’ll break out a bold lip [though I do love a nice hot pink or fuchsia in the summer with an otherwise bare face]. Still, I think it’s fun to add a pop of color – but I like to do this in a more subtle way.
To me, the easiest way to bring color into a look is with a bright or bold nail polish. I enjoy a good coral or watermelon pink during the warmer months, but at the moment, my jam is this stunning red from Butter London. The shade is Ladybird*, and it is an incredible tomato red that definitely makes a statement, while still looking chic.
To keep things neutral on the face [very inspired by Charlotte Tilbury’s Kate Moss wedding makeup tutorial], I’m loving taupes, nudes, and mauves. Specifically, Charlotte Tilbury’s eye quad in The Sophisticate, Tarte’s Amazonian Clay blush in Celebrated, and Clinique’s Chubby Stick in Heaping Hazelnut.
