The Lookbook: AW16 Cherry Lips


I've always been a fan of statement lips; they look amazing on everyone and can be created using any lipstick shade, texture or finish. The only real downside to wearing a statement lip is saying goodbye to eating and kissing...tough, right?! Oh, and as for drinking through a straw?? Absa-fucking-lootly.

Statement lips always sneak their way into fashion shows and, in true Italian style, bold lips were present throughout Milan Fashion Week. The colour of choice? Cherry. I died. I love this colour like you can't imagine. Shades varied across each show; maroon at Marni, oxblood red at Antonio Marras and burgundy at Bottega Veneta...

The makeup at the Bottega Veneta show had me like the heart eyes emoji - Italian beauty at its best - so I couldn't resist creating a BV AW16 inspired look. However, to make it a little more wearable, I switched the structured smokey eye for a more softer look.

I prepped my skin with the Pestle & Mortar Pure Hyaluronic Serum, SK-II Essential Power Rich Cream and Colbert MD Nourish Eye Cream. As for the makeup, below is what I used to create the look...

- Rodial Instaglam Compact Deluxe Illuminating Powder
- NARS Blush (Orgasm)
- Benefit Hoola
- Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil (Ex-Girlfriend)
- MAC Lipstick (Diva) paired with BECCA Ultimate Colour Gloss in Berry Twist
