Whenever the seasons start to change, I always tend to feel just a bit more feisty. Especially by the end of the year, I get the feeling I need to step up my game. Because my mood influences the way I dress, I feel the need to incorporate an edge into my look. This time I’ve decided to stay on trend – I’ve opted for dark purple lips. A deep dark lip color instantly makes you look fierce.

In order to choose the right color lipstick it is essential that you know which skin tone you have. People with cool undertones look best by wearing blue-toned lipstick and those with warm undertones look most beautiful by wearing red/orange-toned lipstick.
There are several ways to determine your skin tone; the easiest is by looking at the veins on your wrist. If your veins appear blue/purple you have a cool skin tone. If your veins appear green, you have a warm skin tone. If you can’t decide which color your veins are, you’re probably one of the lucky few who can get away with any color.

Whenever I wear heavier make-up, I prefer to keep my outfit low profile. This is because I always opt for one eye-catcher in my look; this makes me feel most beautiful.
I’m wearing a long black coat (brand: La Martina), deep dark blue skinny jeans (brand: J Brand), long sleeve black tee (brand: Supertrash) and classic black velour pumps (brand: Zara).
