Beauty | FOTD: Smokey Eye & Cranberry Lip

As a nice follow on from yesterday’s blog post about gratitude and memories… I really enjoyed a lovely meal at one of my favourite restaurants, Chiquito’s, at the weekend. It’s a Mexican restaurant with a menu that’s overflowing with delicious food and a great atmosphere, which is a pretty lethal combination.

Attempting to take a selfie while wearing sombrero’s proved to be more of a challenge than we first thought…

Anyway, I thought that this was a good time to share a “Face of the Day“. I kept my make-up fairly simple but also saw it as an opportunity to wear a smokey eye and cranberry lip, which is featuring less as one of my looks as we head into Spring.

      I love that description “girly yet fierce”, thanks so much! This lipstick can really be built up into a much deeper plum shade too, though I quite liked it with the lighter pink tone showing through on this occasion. Fun!
