Autumnal Outfit

Black is a colour I have always worn a lot of but this winter, I seem to be wearing all black outfits most days. Obviously I don't feel like wearing bright coloured clothes on a cold, miserable day (does anyone?!) when black just seems so much warmer. More often than not, I end up in black jeans with a black jumper, black converse and a black coat on top and I like it that way, it makes me feel like I've got my life together and it makes me feel warm. Sometimes though, I feel like it needs something extra to give it a bit of a lift.
Autumn leaves converse
Usually, I'll do that with a different coloured pair of converse or something like that - I'd never really thought about doing it with make up before. You know I’m not usually one to wear lipstick (or anything apart from eyeliner for that matter) but I had a brand new red one in my room that Diet Coke had sent me and a press release that said they would be great if you're looking to transform your look so I thought I'd be a good opportunity to give lipstick a go!  

It's all part of their current promotion in Boots - until 8 November, you'll receive £3 off a L'Oreal Color Riche Lipstick in Bois de Rose (302), Rose Tendre (303) or Red Passion (297) when you purchase a 500ml bottle of Diet Coke. Since it was Diet Coke, I picked the red to go with my outift yesterday - a black velvet tee, some high waisted trousers, my super warm Missguided jacket and of course my converse which I live in. I'm hoping Santa will bring me some Old Skool Vans from Skate Hut next month to so I can mix it up a little next year

 To celebrate the promotion, Diet Coke have also created some simple and fun lipstick hacks, which are great if you're looking to perk up your pout with a gorgeous new shade of lipstick. The simple tips were great, especially for me since I am pretty new to this whole lipstick thing; I was initially worried about having to deal with it coming off all over everything and having to reapply it whilst I was out but they pointed out, quite rightly, that if you use a straw, you wont have to worry about that
They also pointed out that the right colour lipstick could double as a concealer if used properly. Anyway, I'm pretty pleased with these photos and its definitely a different look for me! What do you guys think about my first attempt at lipstick?
