Sultry and bold, dazzle in this black velveteen coat ($138.00) by complimenting it with a pair of luscious deep raspberry red lipstick in Rouge Dior by Dior ($26.00). Add a touch of flush by dusting on a minute amount of pink blush and a more generous dusting of shimmery brown, like in Bobbi Brown’s blush palette ($35.00). Try a glowy bronze like Peachytwist by MAC if you’re feeling less pink that day. Keep eyes simple or go ultra-dramatic with MAC’s Smokey Eye Palette ($36.00). Go bold with a gray smokey eye, or go subtle with a soft wash of Maid of Honor (creamy beige) all over lid and Palatial (taupe) in the crease for definition. Spend time to perfect the skin to give it a good all-over-glow and utilize contouring to streamline the face and give it a natural appearance.

It’s all about playing up the lips with this coat, which is why we chose such a vibrant red by Dior–and the skin, oh the skin, it needs to be soft, velvety, and absolutely flawless. The combination of the lips and the skin will give you an enviable appearance everywhere you go.

I think my Sephora haul from a few days ago was my most expensive – the Givenchy diamond powder, which I haven’t received yet, so I don’t know! I have bought Dior Addict perfume, which was lovely and worth every penny!
