February Inspiration

Time passes by so quickly these days. For the last couple of months I have been carried away creating new artworks for clients; enjoying every possible moment playing and snuggling with my two year old little gentleman; and soaking up special moments spent as a little family; and just like that it is already February…

So from now on I promise to spend more time updating this space! I know, I know, I have said this before but this time I mean it. Truly I do. I want to start sharing more of my artworks, inspirations and weekly adventures with you once again.

So here is a little look at my February inspiration board…

Maybe it’s because February is upon us or I am simply experiencing the joy of pregnancy once again, but my inspiration board is currently feeling very whimsy and romantic. Shades of red and pink are my favourite; ballerinas are blissfully balancing around my board; and butterflies are floating next to Valentino and the prettiest blossoms…

Happy Valentine’s Day xx

But I would love to know, what is inspiring you this Valentine’s Day? xx

A Popping Red Pout

A bold lip instantly creates a lasting impression & draws attention to a luscious pout.

Red lipstick is a true beauty icon. Timeless, classic and seductively chic – a red pout evokes smouldering ‘Old Hollywood Glamour’ and unmistakable appeal.

As the most popular lip colour for nearly a century, red lipstick is elegant, sophisticated and sexy. The popularity of red lipstick was significantly boosted by Hollywood Silver Screen icons, like Marilyn Monroe, who would often choose vivid shades of red. Red lipstick brightens the face and whitens your smile.  And with so many red tones now available – there is certainly the perfect shade to complement any complexion.

And did you know… During World War II women were encouraged to wear red lipstick as a morale booster? Servicewomen were also required to wear lip colour that matched the red chevrons on their uniforms and cords on their hats. To meet this demand Elizabeth Arden created the iconic Montezuma Red.

Rock a bold red lip flawlessly with some simple preparation and a little tender loving care. Before applying your red shade, gently exfoliate lips and use a light balm. Keep your eye makeup minimal so all attention is drawn to your lovely lips.
