Dark Lips at Dusk

My last blog post from beautiful Russia, as I am currently half way home to Australia, writing this post from a Hong Kong airport terminal where I have a ten hour layover. Although I blogged this dress when I first came to Russia, my grandfather made me another beautiful flower crown this week and I wanted to take some photos of it so it would not go to waste. I am going to miss the Russian countryside with its wild flowers and berries that are everywhere, but at the same time I am very much looking forward to being back in Australia.

We took these photos at dusk on a very gloomy afternoon so the photos turned out a little different to what I would normally would prefer, but I feel that perhaps the darkness works well with the new lipstick I'm wearing; MAC's Darkside. I had been wanting to try dark lips for a while but wasn't sure how well the color would work on me, so at first I bought a cheap Australis brand lipstick to try it out, and after liking it so much I decided to invest in an identical shade by MAC who are my favorite brand when it comes to lipsticks and blush.

Dress - Hell Bunny

  4. Such beautiful pictures, I've always hummed and ahhed about this particular Hell Bunny Dress, because it's cute, but very pale. But after seeing you wear it a couple of times, I think I might be putting it back on my wish list! x

  6. Beautiful images! I love how the dark, alluring lip counters the bubbly sweetness of the dress. They, combined with the landscape and lighting, give this shot such a powerful fairy day quality. Stunning!!!

  14. Oh, the dress! The flower crown! I wish we had enough wild flowers to make a flower crown down here... I think I'm going to HAVE to go flower field hunting come summer. Hopefully, you have made it safely back to Australia Harlow, and aren't too frostbitten coming from summer to winter! ❤

  17. awww your grandpa is so sweet! ^_^ and i love that lipstick on you! i feel like it's hard for me to pull off super dark shades because i have dark hair as well and pale skin so it can look really gothy and overwhelming, and i find the combination can make my look really drained and wash all the colour out of my face. but that doesn't stop me from trying it out and seeing how dark i can go without crossing the line.
