When do you think about what outfit you are going to wear? Are you the kind of super organised girl who gets everything ready the night before, or, a clothes flinging mess in the morning? I am not about to confess to which one I am, but you don’t want to see my side of the bedroom!
Either way maybe you should also think about which lipstick you are going to apply. When putting an outfit together I always think about the *whole* look including my makeup. Something so simple can transform your appearance, why not give it a try?

CHANEL ROUGE ALLURE
This was my very first red lipstick a classic choice, you will never go wrong with Chanel. It is quite dark on the scale of red a beautiful damson shade.
Unfortunately the shade is no longer available but there are 25 shades in the Chanel Rouge Allure range so you have no excuse for not liking one!

111 KISS OF LIFE
My all time favourite lipstick of any colour, the matte finish means it lasts for hours even when eating and drinking! The colour really pops whether you have a light dab or full on layers.
Available at Rimmel London for just £5.49, at that price you could have all four shades!

Each colour in the L’Oreal Pure Reds Collection is represented by a celebrity so you can loosely match your skin tone to theirs and achieve a better colour match.
So, no more excuses, let me see those luscious lips with lashings of lippy……
