Teal eyes, orange lips look

I went out last night and I was wearing a teal dress, so I thought why not mix teal on my eyes with orange on my lips?
It's so summery and makes me think of a more classy version of the 80's makeup ;)

As per usual, my face has been bleached out by the camera flash. Thank you, light reflectant foundation! One day I will get someone else to shoot pics for me, because I've noticed that the farther you get, the more realistic the skin tone is. In real life, I am waaaaaaaaaaaaay more tanned. And I am darker than that even without a tan (I have a yellow undertone!)

Products used:

Layla Hydrotint foundation in 5*
Madina Milano Gel Bronzer
Laura Geller blush in Honey Dipped
Illamasqua Powdered Metal in Thalia* as my highlighter (can't really tell in these pics :S)

KIKO Coloursphere Mat&Pearly in 211 (the teal shade)*
Urban Decay Flipside
Shiseido Gel Liner
Collection 2000 liquid liner
Layla Lashes in 4*
a Clarins light peachy e/s as my highlighter

Cargo The Reverse Lipliner*
KIKO Red Emotion Lipstick in 203 Cheerful Orange*
Ellis Faas Glazed Lips lipgloss in L 304*

I will take pics of the orange lipstick and lipgloss in day light, because they are so lovely!!!


  1. You look gorgeous, love the orange lips! I can't pull off orange lips but they look great on you!

  2. I have the same problem on pics. My face looks always lighter :( and sometime my body too. Sooo annoying!

    Love the lipstick but don't think you can get Kiko in the UK.



  3. Mi piace un sacco l'arancione sulle labbra, più dell'azzurro sulle palpebre, ma è il mio gusto personale...lo dico spesso che io e gli ombretti sul blu/azzurro abbiamo un rapporto complicato :D
    bella come sempre tu ^^

  4. questo look è strepitoso Lydia... Mia associo a Des... mi piace di più l'arancione sulla labbra però!!! ;P... brava brava brava

  5. Bellissima Lyd, ti dona molto il rossetto arancione. Inoltre mi piace molto questo accostamento, non l'ho mai provato (ho visto prima l'immagine pubblicitaria, in effetti è un'ottima ispirazione).
    E poi mi sa che devo prendere qualcosa di Ellis Faas, tu e Olivia mi state incuriosendo a morire.
