THAT PINKY RED LIPSTICK LOOK YOU DIDN'T KNOW YOU NEEDED 'TIL YOU SAW IT

and be sucked into her brilliance. She's almost annoyingly great. She's that person who you're jealous of for being so young and so well accomplished. She's wonderful. And, obviously, this is a very inspiring look. After gawking for a few minutes I thought to myself 'that looks a bit like something I've done before' and the following day I came into work with a great big pinky red smile.

To achieve this look, I blended two of my favourite Retro Matte lipsticks by MAC -

Ruby Woo

and

Relentlessly Red

. Ruby Woo is on the left, Relentlessly Red is on the right.

I defined my lips with Ruby Woo, with a faint layer coating my lip. I then applied the Relentlessly Red all over, blotting with Ruby Woo and blending with my finger.

In retrospect, I think I could have done with it being a bit redder to be a perfect Tavi match, but either way it's a pretty colour.

What do you think?
