I am not sure if we follow such trends here in the Philippines, but from the foreign beauty blogs that I follow, they tend to wear makeup and fashion inspired by this year’s color theme, Radiant Orchid.
I always spend my spare time experimenting new looks, new lip combos, and whatever I can think of using my makeup. If only I can play with them all day, everyday! 😀 I am not a scientist, but I had a Eureka moment while I was playing around with my lipsticks. I applied my MAC RiRi Boy all over my lips and decided to tone the color down by applying Revlon Super Lustrous Matte in Pink Pout on top. I was so happy with the result, and I instantly remembered Radiant Orchid because of the combination.
I have worn MAC RiRi Boy on its own, but Pink Pout seems to wash me out. I think blue-based undertone does not go well with my medium skin tone. I am so happy to discover this magical combo. LOL!
Here’s my #selfie! 😀
