I've finally shifted to a more mature role... *laughs*
I always associate brown with the 90's, and 90's would mean...Melrose Place, Beverly Hills 90210 (Jenny Garth, Shannon Doherty days ha) *laughs* Now my age is too obvious.
But I remembered watching these girls wanting their makeup but I can't wear makeup back then! I grew up in a conservative Chinese Family so I had to wait for years after to finally take the plunge on browns...not today but it was only when I started Blogging.
Today, I'm going back to my roots.... well, literal na roots because I had my hair colored too!
AMW wears... L'Oreal Color Riche in browns....
These shades are inspired by the yummy chocolates and I appreciate how they are in various tones of pinkish browns, red browns and orange browns!
L-R Rose Fondu, Chocolat Rouge and Maple Mocha
These are matte lipsticks that aren't drying and definitely wearable for both day and night! All the shades featured here have their own "specialty" and I believe no matter what complexion you have, you can definitely pick at least one shade that would work for you!
A nude pinkish undertone lip color that could be a bit difficult to pull off if wearers have fair complexion! It would be easier to warm up your face with a stronger eye makeup and brows but medium to darker complexion can actually rock this lip color even sans makeup.
Chocolat RougeThis shade has a hint of orange red to it, very subtle so it doesn't turn me into an orange ball! But wearing this shade can actually warm my face and enhance the color of my hair! It is like exposing myself under the sun for hours which I like because I look like I just came from the beach.
Maple MochaMaple Mocha is my favorite shade of all! Reminds me so much of the 90's makeup look I've always been dreaming about! It may have a bit more richness to it but I'm glad I don't look "goth" like some deep brown lipsticks would create!
If you notice my photos above, you can probably see that my hair color is darker than the past FOTDs! If you noticed, give yourself a pat on the shoulder because you have watchful eyes! I actually had Mr. AMW color my hair (yes, he is my ultimate hair colorist since the day we got married on days I don't have time to go to the salon). This time, I am trying out the newest Excellence Fashion tones from L'Oreal Paris in Beige Light Brown.
Available in 21 shades but here are my top picks:
6.13 Golden Nude Brown
5.13 Ashy Nude Brown
6.1 Beige Medium Brown
Please keep in mind that I have my hair "balayage'd" so it has highlights and lowlights underneath so the effect may not be the same if you use the same hair coloring kit!
I actually like how "at-home-hair-coloring-treatment" kit can give my hair an illusion of perfect imperfection! I like how I have streaks of highlights!
How do you like my new hair color?
Which particular matte brown lipstick do you like the most?
