I don’t think I’ve ever worn blue lipstick before…although I’ve done quite a lot of modelling and obviously as a kid in the 90’s it was all in the mix! But to the best of my memory this is a first.
I was recently given a load of awesome Mac make-up and this ‘Matte Royal’ lipstick was part of the pack. I wanted to try something different so I thought lets give it a go. I went for a natural face and strong lips which I generally think works best unless you are getting dolled up for a serious night out! I like it, I think it’s fun to give a simple look an edge twist. Especially if it’s a bit of a grungy edge – that’s so me.
My kicks are part of the latest Nike Look of the City Pack, this years edition took form in the ‘Air Max Ultra’ silhouette. I was kindly given these as part of an Air Max day experience at Nike Town, and am VERY grateful for them and the chance to see all the installations and try all the products in the Nike Town cube in London. If you haven’t been you really should, you can get almost every part of the show customised, it’s very cool!
My tee is by London brand ‘Nok Nok London’ which is a cool rock n roll style denim brand owned by my friend Angel. And my jeans are an old pair from Urban Outfitters which I decided to update by cutting off the seems on the ankles to give them a modern distressed look. It’s simple but it’s given life to these old jeans and there’s nothing better than re-using clothes. I hate throwing anything away.
The idea of this look is basically to keep things simple in mostly black, with a colour pop in your make up and on your feet. Simple, streetwear with a grungy edge.
