• Most of us who work in media don’t really live in the present. We’ll be writing (with mitten-clad fingers so they don’t freeze up) about the joys of a beach holiday, and we feel we should be packing our bikinis, when the rude reality is that we have 4 months to go. No wonder we’re a bit confused.

    The silver lining is that playing with pretty colours really does brighten a grey day, and these are my best so far…

    My inspiration… two-tone lips

    Holly Fulton and Erdem models looked fresh and gorgeous on the catwalks. Why not break out a bit and give it a try? If the matte finish is too much, try it with a gloss

    Two-tone lips made a big statement at Erdem and Holly Fulton shows

      Love the two-tone lips — If only I could pull it of 🙂

      Hi Li, who says you can’t pull it off? Go for it! I’m not the most adventurous when it comes to make-up, but I’m definitely going to give it a whirl 😉

      I wish I had the courage to go to my work with two toned lips, but I feel like world around me is not ready for this big step yet 🙂 Well, only incognito on parties as a mysterious chick 😉
