When it comes to makeup, I tend to stick to the basics - not straying from a touch of light foundation, a sweep of bronzer. kohl eyeliner and the god send that is Touche Éclat. Experimenting with makeup isn't really up my street (I love my Naked 2 palette but let's face it, only three of the colours have been touched), mainly because I feel like a bit of a drag queen whenever I put anything beyond the basics near my face (although that might just say more about my poor makeup skills than anything else...) 

Having said that, a bold red lip is one thing that I have always loved and is one thing that will always look good - plus, it instantly lifts an outfit and distracts from tired-looking eyes. These two Nars products have recently made it into my makeup collection and have quickly become firm favourites; the Laguna bronzer is the perfect pick-me-up for summer, and this lipstick in Rita is quite possibly the best shade of red I've ever come across.
