Eyeliner + mascara and red nails are the most “me” makeup products. I feel my best when I am wearing good eye makeup and a good red nail varnish.
I have had a few favourites during the years, such as:
And now it’s time to share my favourite red of 2021 so far!
And it is…

I have always loved red but lately I have been obsessed with it more than usual(if that is even possible), I have been pinning and saving beautiful and inspiring pictures on Pinterest and buying red clothes, lingerie and accessories.
I am still on the hunt for the perfect red shoes though! But hopefully will find a pair soon.
Here is a little mood board that I put together after hours of Internet browsing. Which is your favourite picture?
I am the biggest red manicure fan ever, and quite frankly red nail polish is one of my favourite makeup product, it feels very me. And while I have been a huge fan of Max Factor Cerise, and used up 3 bottles of it, I’ve decided to treat myself to some high end red nail polishes.

- The colour is
Apparently, I don’t know such thing, as “too much black”, or, for that matter, often “too much red”.
I have been drawn to red lipstick and nail polish combo for years and years now. But lately I’ve been wearing it non-stop, almost.
While I’ve started “doing red nails” just when I started wearing polish in general, it took me some time to get used to red lipstick, and thank God. A teen with an (often badly applied) red lipstick is not the best sight ever, you know?!
Yes, I do wear it all with a red shirt. Did I mention
