Revlon ColourBurst Matte Lip Balm £7.99 (on 3 for 2) – Boots | Pastel White Mini Satchel £6 – Primark
This month, I’m going for a mahoosive self-overhaul. Recently, I’ve been really struggling with the whole motivation/self-esteem/keeping spirits high and whatnot, so – what does any self-respecting #fblogger do when she’s in a rut? MAKEOVER. And I’m not going about it half-arsed either. The first change is that I’m going for a dramatic hair colour fix, after years and years of consistent ‘Ebony’ locks – opting for a bright, gingery copper shade (like Lana Del Rey on a sunny day) – I think this will be a great move for SS14, especially with all the pastels and girliness set to hit us like a fluffy brick. Once I’ve got bored of it being one colour and my hair’s had time to breathe, I’ll be dip-dyeing the ends to a blonde hue so yeah, big change.
The second change and, to me, the most radical of them all is: I’m getting my teeth whitened. This mightn’t feel like a big deal to some but, I quit smoking at New Year and I’ve always been self-conscious about my teeth: you will NEVER find a picture of me smiling with my g’Nash’ers bared. So I bit the bullet, literally, and booked myself in as a reward for actually sticking to quitting smoking. I’ll be posting a review of the experience after I go on Thursday so, if you’re thinking of getting your own done: keep your eyes (and gums) peeled.
And with a makeover, has to come a new feel-good wardrobe, right? These pieces will look great against my new hair colour and, once my teeth are looking Hollywood white, I’m going to feel so much more comfortable trying new lipstick shades (sorry trusty Russian Red) – especially SS14’s hot shade of orange. And apparently those Revlon sticks are creating quite the beauty blogger storm!
Is anyone else planning a look overhaul soon? Let me know your plans!
