I tend to attempt a style aesthetic reminiscent of sometime between the 40s and 50s - faux bangs, pin-curls and tea dresses are a big part of my daily dress-up. However I have struggled for years to pull off the more classical vintage day time look with a beautiful classic nude lip - being neither blonde nor Brigitte Bardot, everything I tried was far too dark and brown on my pink tinged pale skin. I looked washed out and zombiefied, or even worse - like I just hadn't bothered putting any make-up on at all!

Will it tempt me away from my reds? Never - but it has certainly given me a day time alternative where I can shoot in the studio or go to meetings and feel a little more Audrey than Bettie. It's always good to have lots of choices - even if 98% of them are variants of red!
