Birthday Beat

Red Lips On Dark Skin black beauty bloggers
Hi guys!
Hope you have all been well!
It was my birthday this week (25 but I feel 15!) so I decided to celebrate by going for more than a few drinks with friends.
I didn't want to go too 'all out' with my birthday dress so wore a simple black dress and made my make up the statement.
I wanted the sexy siren look so I went with a uber subtle brown smokey eye and a bright red lip.
I LURVE a red lip, its sexy and sophisticated and can perk up the most simple of outfits!
Here's a recreation of my birthday look!
