Terracotta Tones

Terracotta is a colour that I’ve recently grown super fond of since buying Maybelline’s Super Stay Liquid Ink in Fighter. I think it’s such a bold yet flattering colour on the lips and goes with everything from day time to night time.

I find that Fighter, as gorgeous as it is, can be a little too bold – especially when I don’t have a tan on. So in this tutorial, I mute it down a little using a lighter peachy terracotta toned lipstick from Bourjois.

When wearing terracotta it’s a very easy colour to clash with, so here I’ve created a monotoned eye and cheek look to show how to wear it for an everyday glam. To make this super glam for a night on the town, I’d simply add a bit more bronzer, some glitter (of course) and lashes.
