Inject Some Colour Into Your January!

Yes, January isn't the chirpiest of months for many, and even with it being nearly over, I find it can take a little while to get out of the post-Christmas 'funk' many of us get ourselves into. Especially seeing as the weather is getting worse too! :(

That's why I find it is never a bad thing to opt for a few more colourful accents during this time of year for a little perk me up!

This month I got my nails done and went for OPI's 'A Grape Fit', a beautiful purple/lilac colour; a very welcome change from the nudes and dark colours I've been sporting the last few months.

Jewellery can also be a great way to liven up a wintry ensemble. I would never turn down an all-black outfit - it is one of my favourite looks. However, a little bling can certainly never hurt anyone and can really lift a whole outfit.

I also picked up a violet eyeliner from Maybelline. A little colour in the waterline of your eyes, even if very subtle, can really perk you up on a dreary January day. No need for dramatic eyeshadow, good old neutral shades will suffice, a coloured liner makes all the difference! I posted about coloured eyeliners not too long ago, you can find that post HERE.
And don't forget the lips! I wouldn't necessary go bold on the eyeliner and the lipstick at the same time (although I am sure there are several ways to make that work!), but I think it is good to have some sort of 'pop' no matter how subtle. Lip shades I'm loving at the moment are:
