my guide to the perfect nude lip

10th February 2016
A nude lip has inadvertently become a signature look of mine. It gives me the definition which my lips unfortunately lack, without leaving the sensation of looking “over done”. It softens my features whilst ensuring I feel put together and polished. Just the way I like. The quest for the perfect nude shade is something many of us are on, does it wash me out? Do I suit cooler or warmer nude tones? Tom Ford or M.A.C.? The hurdles we face when attempting to settle on one is arduous and with so much choice, why would you want to settle for just one? Matte, Gloss, liquid or Pencil I’ve put together my favourite Lip combinations from the top brands to have absolutely nailed it when it comes to Nude.

There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad weather attire 💧
A little indulgence from my comfort of my own home thanks to INCREDIBLE @kmp_skin and @freshbeauty Ad 
for the launch of the new Lotus Youth Preserve Resurfacing dream serum which is a gentle AHA serum with prickly pear flower extract said to boost radiance and it was so lovely to be treated to a first trial to get a very first impression of the serum thanks to KMP and her magic hands. I’ve literally never had a facial like it!
The plum tree in our garden is always the first blossom to erupt at this time of year narrowly beating the much loved aubretia that grows in abundance through our old garden wall. As soon as is acceptable I’m out with my secateurs ready to fill vases and prickly jars with its delicate confetti like blooms 🌸
Februarys carpet of Crocus blooms is always quite the spectacle. I find these little cheerful perennial flowers popping up in the most unlikely of places and what’s special is how they naturalise and multiply each year to create a carpet of flowers ready for the early Winter-Spring bees 🌱
Winter Spring views.
Primrose & Snowdrops are on their way!
February is a very special month, it almost feels like the build up before the crescendo of spring and I can’t help but feel a flutter in my chest at the thought of what’s to come 🌱
