Lippy Love.

Eeekk! Sorry to anyone who came here for new posts in the past few days, I've had a very busy week with work and uni! I am finding it challenging to keep up with this whole blog writing thing, *accio inspiration*! I'd rather not post one picture of whatever and say "this is cool", I'd like my posts to be more insightful than that.
However. NARS Cosmetics has posted something on their Facebook page that I took great interest in: Their AMAZING lip (and eye) shades in this shoot! These images were recently featured in Vogue Nippon, I found the colour pallets intriguingly innovative.






Makeup artist: Lena Koro
Photographer + stylist: Françoise Nars

Fashion credits here go to the gorgeous Miu Miu - their bow collars, flowers and classic cuts complement the makeup so well here. YELLOW lips, I mean who could ever pull that off?! I believe the reason these vibrant yellows and purples work so well here is thanks to our good friend the colour wheel:


For anyone who never realised, opposite (and therefore contrasting) colours used together make each other POP while still looking stylised rather than random. If you are ever wondering what colour on earth you are going to do your eyes to match that bright orange dress, the answer is blue! I know it can sound weird, but contrasting colours make perfect sense to the human eye. This is basic knowledge for most, but just something to keep in mind incase you weren't listening in art class that time. :)

Adding both navy and pale orange to the combination of contrasting yellow and purple here was a stroke of genius by creative director of NARS, Françoise Nars, who styled and photographed this editorial for Vogue. What a guy.
