Lighter hair = orange lips



I think this is the first time I have ever come back from the hairdressers and not felt that compulsion to immediately wash and restyle.
I love the blowdry and the amped up ombre with super blonde ends. This was all courtesy of Anthony at Pastels/JBR and for those of you living or visiting Dubai he is the best person to go to. 

I skipped the cut this time (as I am denial about the condition of my ends) but next time a trim will definitely be scheduled. Anthony and I are also in talks about a colour change. Watch this space! 

I was in such a good mood that I thought I would be bold with my makeup choice and as soon as I got home I applied MAC Morange. Lighter hair = orange lipstick. The two work so well I think/hope.

Morange is such a fantastic, pigmented and long-lasting lipstick. While scary as hell when initially applied, due to it’s cartoonish brightness, you do get used to it. I think I might wear this for the rest of the week :) 

Dress: Peter Pilotto for Target purchased from Net a Porter. This print is something that my dad would probably describe as "lots of fun". 

It's a bit mad and when I first received it I couldn't decide if it was ugly or not but actually, I like it alot. The fit of all the items I got was great and the quality not at all bad for the price. I got this skirt, this other dress and a towel. Yes, I got a towel. And you know what? It's sort of my favourite thing from that particular haul :) 

See you tomorrow :)

    1. It's definitely a summer shade but do give it a try. I didn't line my lips or anything. Just dabbed it on and built it up. At first it was scary bright but then I just got used to it. It's addicting I think :)

  11. The orange lipstick suite you perfectly with that dress! Wish I was brave enough to move away from pinky nudes and the odd bold red lip. x

  20. I've been on the fence about this lipstick for so long, should I get it...shouldn't I get it...picked it up in MAC, put it down, bought a boring colour instead....seeing these pics with you wearing it has made up my mind...I'm definitely getting it!! :-)

    Love the towel you bought too, I'm tempted!

    ps. love the new hair too!

  33. I don't find it cartoonish at all. Although you look gorgeous in your usual colors, this look (makeup and hair particularly) gives a carefree and fun look. I am absolutely crazy about it!

  36. The hair and lipstick definitely scream spring/summer. I didn't buy anything from this collection, for some reason I actually preferred items from the Prabal Gurung for Target collection.
