I took these photos in the car with a lot of natural light - I started this look with my new favourite mineral fusion foundation in 'warm', NC 30 concealer by MAC, Melba blush (also MAC). For my eyes, I used Elizabeth Arden Sparkling shadow as a base, MAC's Soba eyeshadow with COffee eyeliner and NARS Benagli smudged into the upper lashline and finished with a few coats of MAC's Zoom Lash mascara in Lofty Brown. To complete the look fully, a swipe of NARS Christina Lipstick!!!

NARS Christina and Chanel Venise are now my two signature lipstick shades! I've discovered and have contemplated for a long time how many lipsticks a woman should own, why women keep buying lipstick after lipstick after lipstick etc and the benefit of knowing your true colours (having a colour analysis done)!

ANyhow, without further ado, here is NARS Christina lipstick:
