    Current Makeup Bag Staples

    I know as of late on PennyxxLane that the topic of makeup has taken a backseat – I love makeup I still feel super giddy opening up a new eyeshadow palette, but the desire to buy tons and tons of makeup each month has subsided, thank god. It’s bloody expensive and brands release sooo much and I end up having different variations of the same stuff – so yeah that’s pretty much why you don’t see so much beauty around these parts nowadays and I’m okay with that.

    The Red Lipstick Edit

      (Some of the products in this post were gifted) Lately, my favourite makeup product to wear is red lipstick, it’s kinda like the little black dress of makeup in the sense that it never goes out of style however it’s not always so easy to pull off.  I use to find wearing red lipsticks so difficult, I felt like a bit of a fraud almost like a child playing dress up. More often than not I would wipe the bright colour off my lips and choose something a little bit safer but over the last few months I’ve really embraced the classic lip and I am now really appreciating…
