Lucy likes bright lips!

Hi all!

Thought I'd do a quick F.O.T.D. as I've been trying out a new lip product at the moment - 'Stila's Lip Rouge in Pucker' - and I am such a big fan! I absolutely love bright lips but am not good with high maintenance make up; because of this, this liquid lip stain definitely has my seal of approval. It stays on for absolutely hours, in fact, sometimes it stays on too long and I look a bit too done up when I wake up the next morning!

Just off out to La Tasca for my ma's birthday (so excited for some tapas!), so I wanted my make up to look a bit more special than normal but not TOO done up.

As you can see the stain is a bright red with pink undertones, which I think looks lovely with a natural pink blush.

Base: Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector (Daily all-in-one B.B. cream) in Light
Foundation: Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum in 52
Concealer: Revlon PhotoReady Concealer and Bourjois Brush Concealer
Blush: Cargo Blush in Louisiana 
Highlighter: No7 Skin Illuminator in Peach

Shadow: HD Brows Foxy Palette (Ash Brown used in crease)
Liner: Collection 2000 Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip in Black
Mascara: L'Oreal's Volume Million Lashes Mascara in Extra Black
Brows: HD Brows Foxy Palette

Lipstain: Stila's Lip Rouge

Stole: Primark

Have you tried any other lipstains recently which you've liked? I'd love to buy a few more to try out!
I think I'm going to dye my hair this evening - bored of the red-ish tones so think I may go chocolate brown - so I'll put up a post if it's not a complete disaster!

Have a brilliant Thursday everyone!
Lots of love,
Lucy xxxx
