MAC Ruby Woo Review

Red Lipstick lovers should take note of the amazing Ruby Woo shade by MAC – it’s simply stunning.  I thought I had found my number one red lipstick last summer, when I discovered MACs Lady Danger.  But then I found Ruby Woo and thought ‘woo hoo’ – now I have two favourite red lipstick shades.

Ruby Woo is a deep red, plum-like hue.  It’s a cool, blue-based red that is screaming with sophistication.  This shade is best for those with cool or neutral colouring.    Like with any other red lipstick – I need to wear a good base to get away with this shade.  Red lipstick as well as other bright shades, tend to highlight skin imperfections on my face.  So its essential to have a good base of concealer and foundation on to hide it all!  I love wearing this shade with smudged dark brown kohl on my upper lids with lashings of black mascara and some pink blush on my cheeks.   It’s a simple and classic look that never dates – perfect for winter.


Personally, I think MAC do it best when it comes to lipstick.  Not only do they offer a range of amazing and vibrant colours, they also offer a range of different textures and finishes.  I prefer a matte finish when it comes to red lips – I think the colour last longer.  The only disadvantage I find with matte lipstick is that it can dry your lips out so be mindful to look after your lips with regular scrubs and balm to keep them in luscious condition and looking lovely!

Swinging Sixties Spring Make-Up

I am very excited that the sixties is in full swing for spring/ summer 2013 beauty! Featured in Marc Jacobs, Moschino, Michael Kors, and Luis Viutton. The sixties are one of my favourite decades for fashion and beauty style. Some of my most adorned icons are from this era, including Twiggy, Audrey Hepburn, Mary Quant, Marianne Faithfull and many more. It somehow looks effortless, sexy, funky, and glamorous all at the same time. I love the doe eyes, fluttering lashes, and nude lips. I might revive the sixties look this year by rocking doe eyes, and a bright coral or pink lipstick (nothing too garish of course). Teamed with blonde volumised up-do, I’ll be in full-blown party mode.
