FOTD: Summer Berry

Berry toned colours are generally thought of as more appropriate for autumn and winter rather than spring and summer.  I think they're some of the best colours for my skin, though - so I generally try to wear them year round!  My only concession to summer is to wear a lighter, more brightening lip colour.

Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation, shade 2, mixed with tiny dab of shade 7
Laura Geller Balance n Brighten foundation in Fair (used as powder)
Benefit High Beam

Chanel Le Crayon Sourcils in Auburn (brows)
Urban Decay Toast (from Naked Palette)
L'Occitane Pivoine Flora eyeshadow palette (mid-pink and purple shades)

Chanel Rouge Allure Lacque in Ming

  1. BEAUTIFUL. And I mean you, not just your makeup. :)

  2. I love your make up - your eyes and skin look so 'soft' the way you've done them and your lips are a beautiful shape. I thought Ming was a more pinky shade, but I haven't seen it in real life.

  3. Thank you both :)

    Ming is quite pink but on me it runs to a more pinky neutral - still quite light, though, it's taken me a while to decide I like it as it's a lot lighter than I'd usually wear. Definitely worth a swatch next time you're near a Chanel counter!
