Scarlet Fever.

"When in doubt wear red."
- Bill Blass

Candid in-car-on-the-way-to-the-Supermarket shot. Today's choice of red: Bésame Voluptuous Lip Colour lipstick in Red Velvet.*

It could be the new hair style and colour I've been sporting recently. It could be the new girl I discovered on YouTube who I met at a recent meet-up whose retro stylings and effortlessly classic makeup style had my jealous heart aflutter. It could be the fact that it's September, that the nights are drawing in bit by bit and it's finally time for anything but coral.

Recently I've been shyly reaching for deeper hues; at first I pansied about and dabbed them as a stain, and gradually built myself up for the full whammy, the Hollywood sexbomb, the proper scarlet pout. There's just something in this shade which makes me feel right at home, confidently sassy and ready to get on with the day. Matte, glossy or peppered with shimmer - it doesn't matter; just as long as it's scarlet and screaming and paired with a glossy liquid liner, a perfect face and an insouciant cocked brow.

Well, there's always a reason why trend after trend passes the simple red lip by, but never surpasses it: the confidence and pure sex you exude while wearing it are simply incomparable.

Insouciant brow? Check.

    @legseleven7 I love blackish purples - when they hit the light they just transform more than any other colour I've seen :) xx
