beauty inspiration: deep red lipstick

The perfect look for this time of year. Deep red lipstick, heavy brows and pared down eyes makes this is easy, elegant look to recreate. It makes me crave Nars Cruella Velvet Matte Lip Pencil even more, although I think it's currently sold out online. Christmas present anyone?

givenchy s/s 2014 sequin masks

As Halloween approaches, why not channel the deeply intricate and avant-garde work of Pat McGrath at Givenchy? It's more interesting than the general zombie-witch-cat hybrid Halloween normally inspires.

 I love the flecks of gold in this collection, even the models hair partings had gold running through them.

 I've fallen hard for the tweed jacket in the first image. Such a prep at heart.

sportmax s/s 2014

Injections of polka dots scattered on a mixture of streamlined and boxy silhouettes, married beautifully with a pale pink and monochrome background.
I like.

peter pilotto s/s 2014

Peter Pilotto never fails to stun me. The blend of blue, green and white in the first looks won me over; the flattering full wide skirt was kept modern with the enlarged sleeves and crisp white collars.
