I've gone RED.....Before & After!!

So last Thursday I took the plunge and went red!!  I’d been so excited up until 10 minutes before my appointment. Suddenly I felt anxious, but I’d been thinking of going red for a while and didn’t wanna back out!!

So, what do you think??

It’s a little darker than I wanted, and not quite Poppy’s beautiful colour but I’m getting used to it!

I’m quite excited to experiment with new colours, apparently I need to avoid pinks, which is a shame as I would say 70% of my lipglosses/lipsticks and blushers are pink!
Well, that does give me a great excuse to go makeup shopping!! (Which I’ve started) Like I ever need an excuse!
I have taken some fab tips from Daniel Sandler and Karla Powell, I messaged them both prior to getting my hair done, asking for a little advice.

Daniel suggested I should use less pink shades and more peach or earthy/gold/bronze tones.
Karla advised I avoid pale foundations, which could result in washing me out. Wear rich purple shades on my lips, she also said peach and copper tones should flatter my new look!

 In the photo above  I’m wearing Bourjois new ‘Light’ eyeshadow in No2 Frosted Blue, MAC khol in blooz, MUA blusher in shade 6 which is a plum tone and Bourjois Sweet Kiss lipstick in Rose Cachemire, a nude peach shade,  with a little FashionistA Plumping Lipglaze in Coral Couture on top!

 I’m wearing my usual base of MAC studio Fix foundation in NW25, Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer  in  Light,  BareMinerals Mineral Veil, BareMinerals Warmth Bronzer and Daniel Sandler Jumbo Jet Mascara on my lashes.
I actually have a lot of natural/earthy tones, so I thought I'd just try something completely different on my eyes which is why I played about with the frosted blue shade, it's a very subtle soft blue and I quite like it!
Next on my list are some plum and deep purple lip colours like Karla suggests! Love the look of the Kate Moss Rimmel lipstick in no4, it’s nothing like I’ve ever worn before!!
