FOTD – Spring Brights!

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 2 - 2013

I don’t do pastels, I blend into the background enough without them thankyouverymuch.  I need some contrast in my life, and eyeliner… all of the eyeliner.  I don’t think I like this look but I do like my hair very muchly.  So much infact, that I sort of, kind of, want a loose perm.  But that’s exactly the kind of thing you want just before you get one and then regret it forever.

I’ll have to think on this more seriously.

FOTD - Spring Brights!

Ok, so the look is possibly a bit eighties, and not in a cool way.  As a nineties child, it’s pretty hard to think that anything about the eighties can really be considered cool when you were there first hand with the Speak and Spell to prove it.

My problem is that I struggle to think about a makeup look in its entirety, I just wake up and think “I want to wear BLUE EYELINER today (ooh, aren’t I bold!)”.  And then, 20 minutes later, my husband is rushing me out the door and I’m stood there… lip-less thinking “QUICK! What goes with blue, what goes with blue?!?!!”

“PINK!”

And I grab the pinkest lipstick and blush that I can find.

Oh well, at least my skin looks good.

What was the last bold look you attempted?  Did it work out?

  1. WOW, I’ve been following you for ages and I almost never comment on your FOTD’s but you look effin’ amazing here! I’m enchanted <3

  2. I actually love this look, looks really fresh and Spring-like!

  4. Carrie A. says:

    I actually love this look, especially with your coloring! Now I’m inspired to break out my colored eyeliners and get a fresh Spring look too.

  5. Leanne says:

    Milf. That is all.

  6. Charlie says:

    I think it’s actually a rather spectacular look on you. Suits you VERY well indeed.

  7. Love this look. It’s so beautiful on you.

  8. Marianthi says:

    Ha ha! I am like you, I decide the eyeshadow colour and then I struggle to complete the rest of my fase.
    But you look very beautiful here. The eyes just so, the lips just so, the skin and hair just so, everything contributes to one of the most beautiful and feminine looks I have seen in a while.

  9. Lydia says:

    I really like this look! And your hair does look amazing! But I wouldn’t get a perm, my hairdresser told me to never get a perm as nearly everyone regrets it, and loose perms often end up too tight xx

  10. Oh my gaaaahd I love this so much! D:

    Which makes NO SENSE, because it’s not the eighties, but this actually looks very cool on you, my dear. <3

  11. Jo says:

    I think it looks great. I’m not surprised you love your hair and your brows are fab.

  12. Hahaha Speak and Spell.
    “Spell dinner”. Types D.I.N.N.E.R.
    “That is incorrect. Spell dinner.” Types D.I.N.E.R (losing confidence now).
    “That is incorrect. The correct spelling of dinner is F.E.M.A.L.E.”

    I had so much fun with that thing.
    You’re looking great here, btw. I love that lipstick, and the barnet. I really should be a bit braver with make up, I always admire it on other people. And yes, your skin looks awesome. x

    This color is STUNNING on you! 🙂 x

  15. Kelly says:

    I think this look on you is totally gorgeous. I tried the same thing with liner last week in blue and HATED it on myself, but you look GORGEOUS.

  16. Jennifer says:

    love that lip color! so in for the season of Valentine’s day!

  17. Ann says:

    Like Moonchild, I follow, but rarely comment. However, I just had to say something about this – you are so wrong! I LOVE this look! You are rocking some beautiful skin, and your eyes look romantic, beautiful, and the pink lip is perfect. I think this is a great look especially for Valentine’s Day. You’re rocking it Sister!

  18. Sydney says:

    This look is absolutely fantastic on you.
    I think Mr L should rush you out of the house more often!

  19. I think you look fabulous! I love this look, very fresh and feminine!
