FOTD: Inspired by Adele

Hey!!

So I have wanted to do a look inspired by Adele for a long time now.  Adele is an amazing chanteuse! I love her voice, her look, her style, vibes, everything!   Her albums are full of true, true tabanca songs.  She’s just stunning to me!

Adele’s signature style seems to be modern 60′s makeup.  The focus is always the eyes, winged out liner, full, flirty lashes and the rest of the face is understated. Nude lips, matte foundation, cheek contouring and not a lot of shimmer.  She also follows this up with full, sexy, voluminous hair and spiked nails.  I love it all! It matches her personality and curvy figure well and I hope she does not succumb to societal pressures.

Anyway, I saw the October 2011 cover of Vogue UK and had to a look based on it.

Matte is back! NYX Matte Lipstick review

Having spent years in the shadow of the gooey lipgloss, lipsticks have roared back to the forefront and matte lipsticks have been at the centre of the trend!  This year, bright, bold matte lips were all over the runway and in every magazine and the trend continues into the autumn/winter.  Years ago, dark, vampy, matte lips were routine but they got a bad reputation because they were often very drying, accentuated any cracks in your lips and generally not comfortable.  Fast forward to now and the formulas have been revamped.  Conditioners have been added to these densely pigmented lip products to make them a lot more wearable.

NYX just recently launched a new line of matte lipsticks in 22 colours.  I ordered 2 of them to start wih from beautyjoint.com and I paid $4.99 each.
