RAFW - Leona Edmiston, Ginger & Smart, Seventh Wonderland
Leona Edmiston - oh dear, I'm in love. A statement lip is what I'm (trying to be) all about, and Leona Edmiston pulled it off to perfection. Keep the eyes pale and add a rose blush and I'm in red lip heaven. The forward knot in the hair was just genius - very high-fashion, not sure if I could do this in real life. But I may use it for a photo shoot. The side curl adds a quirk which I love.
Ginger & Smart - I hate to say it, but I didn't like this hair look. This reminds me of my own hair after I've lazily straightened it and pulled my growing-out-fringe back out of my eyes. Poker-straight hair is out in my book - volume is much more flattering on most people. I like the golden eyes that get a bit dark and smokey in the outer corner, with some false lashes adding extra drama. Cheeks are softly contoured and the lips are coated with a pinky gloss.
Seventh Wonderland - yay! Creative hair! Wet-look gel is generously applied before the hair is flattened to the scalp and shapes are sculpted over the face. I assume it's a more stylised version of your own hair as you emerge from the ocean and you casually swipe it out of your eyes. Minimal makeup is used - but as we're looking at beachwear that's kinda fitting as you're not meant to wear makeup to the beach (although I do).
