Today was Russian lip day. I've seen this around quite a bit recently, but i wasn't sure about it. After trying it out, I can say thats its definitely something you would wear as part of a costume - it would look strange if I wore it on the streets. However, I really had fun doing both the hair and the make-up, and its something I would recommend to everyone. Although I stayed with the conventional red lips, I think next time I'll try it with colours that are more exciting, something like purple or orange. Actually, I would love to see what effect black has when the lip is only partially covered. So many looks, so little time!!
