Two Toned

My Sunday mornings consist of lots of tea, PJs, and a good read. It is absolute bliss (I do apologize as I know I have pushed this post live on a Monday, and now Sunday seems even further away, bah!).

My reading of choice this Sunday was this month’s Marie Claire magazine, I have brought this magazine for donkeys years, and I have such a fondness for it now that if it ever goes out of print I will be devastated! 
Whilst absent mindedly turning the pages, and drinking my tea, I came across the editorial beauty pages. You know the ones with the perfect but a bit out there makeup applied to a deliciously georgous model.
I kid you not, I actually gasped. 
The model and the makeup was stunning. So stunning that I immediately jumped out of bed, ran into my office and started applying all of the makeup I could find (slight exaggeration there, but you get my point). You can find the inspiration pictures on my instagram (here)  or of course in this month’s Marie Claire. 
My recreation of Siddhartha’s look for Maria Claire maybe one of my favorites this year, a simple makeup but the two toned lips make what could be a otherwise ‘normal’ look fun.
