It's not often I pick up an allure magazine on a regularly basis. Reason being it's not the easiest-to-reach magazine in shops. However there's no excuse from now on! As I know exactly where to get hold of one in Hong Kong, albeit I have to travel for 7 underground stops to buy one. I'm going to make a monthly trip to do this though!
To mark my new beauty resolution, I wanted to make a debut blogpost on what I've learnt from allure, starting from the March 2014 edition.
As I flicked through the pages in allure, one thing that really struck a chord with me is the rich colour on almost every page. It's colourful, from pastel pink, yellow, green to some darker shades of purple and glittery grey.
How about trying to go out of your comfort zone by wearing brighter lips?
Orange, pink and purple, they might sound a little difference to your usual nude/ beige, 'my lips but better' shades; they would certainly help injecting some colours to your routine daily makeup look to give people a fresher spring look!
Radiant Orchid (purple) has been selected as Pantone Colour of the Year 2014. Purple is my favourite colour and I'm definitely going to try some of these out. L'Oreal Infallible eyeshadow is a great product, not only they are pretty and of good quality, they are completely affordable and the colour pay off is extremely good with a very easy to blend quality!
Things on the fashion side of things isn't quiet either, floral, monochrome, stripey tops and bottoms, accessories and some big statement necklaces are also great ways to make your own personal fashion statements when you are strutting down the street.
Time to go shopping for Spring?
You can pick up March's edition of allure from great food hall, Hong Kong.
