FOTD || Red Wedding Lips

As-Salaamu Alaikum
Peace Be Upon You

I typically don’t go to weddings, but every now and again I’ll take the time to get ready, pop on my fancy shmancy clothes and venture out. I opted for a very simple look with strong brows and a pop of colour, which was this beautiful luxury red with a velvet smooth finish from… Bourjois! I just had to share this discovery of mine with you all as I know you’ll love it!

I know a lot people are cautious of wearing red lips but I love it! Find the right colour with a suited undertone to match your skin, and you’ll feel like a million bucks! I tend to gravitate towards blue tone reds more than anything 🙂

I purchased this suit couple of months ago  from Diya Online, randomly saw it at their Luton branch and adored it! Such a simple design, not to fussy or itchy *my asian girls know what I’m on about. Love a bit of simplicity, very understated and can be dressed up so quickly and simply, just my kind of suit ❤

Primark  ||  Heels

My suits in a size S, which is like a UK 8/10 – just for reference when you’re browsing.

Whilst I was looking for this dress online I came across so many more beautiful suits! Definitely worth checking out before Eid, [here’s] their virtual catalogue if wish to get some inspiration.

The following video shows my makeup after a whole day’s event, I didn’t touch up the face once except for the lips after the dinner. Do have a look as I show you my current TK Maxx and Boots finds! 😀

I hope you enjoy! Until the next post x
