FALL TREND: dark lips.
featured: Topshop in Depth
As someone with a somewhat olive/golden complexion, I never thought that dark lips would be for me. I love red lipstick but I never thought I’d be able to pull off a dark and vampy shade like this.
Topshop’s Depth is a slightly sheer lipstick with a glossy finish, however it definitely needs a liner or some kind of base as it shows off all the imperfections of the lips. It comes off as a blacked burgundy, leaning towards a very purple-violet color. In comparison to one of the other Topshop purple lipstick, this one definitely has warmer undertones. At RM46 a lipstick, it’s relatively affordable for the unique color you get.
This is a lipstick not for the faint of heart and it’s a way to add a bold touch to any everyday outfit. Above, I’m showing you the two ways I would wear it: the first look is a casual, almost grunge-y look and below is definitely a vamp/night time look.
halloween makeup, I was stuck between the two looks!
I find that texture is an great way to break up a monochrome outfit. I’m wearing a lot of black here but it’s not boring because of the juxtaposition of lace and leather. Oh yes, obligatory Britney Spears reference here.

I’ve developed a love for longer skirts lately and this skirt has the most dramatic effect when I’m walking around on a windy day!
HOW I STYLE A BLACK SKIRT
I wear this black skirt with almost anything. It’s a Cotton On skirt, stretchy and comfortable as anything.
a) with knit: ridiculously comfortable, can easily take you from day to night in a blink of an eye. I love this knit for its color and how its thin enough for me to survive Malaysian weather and yet I don’t need a sweater if I go anywhere cold.
jewelry: cotton on
b) with white: who doesn’t love the simplicity of black and white? this is a cream long-sleeved crop top.
c) with black: monochrome. I like monochrome.
Yes, that is my favorite FabSpy bag.
