For today’s FOTD I put all focus on the lips which, as you have probably noticed, isn’t something I do very often. It’s usually all about the eyes for me…
The star in today’s make-up look? The Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color in Madarin Rapture. Take a look!
Mandarin Rapture is a vibrant glossy orange red that just screams spring and summer. Forget about ‘pops of color’, Mandarin Rapture is a real tsunami of color!

Undiscovered (inner half of the lid) + Unbelievable (outer half of the lid) + Unspoken (crease) + Undercover (brow bone & inner corner of the eye)
With Mandarin Rapture grabbing all the attention I decided to keep the rest of my make-up subtle, with a combination of Undiscovered, Unbelievable and Unspoken from my LORAC Unzipped Eyeshadow Palette on the eyes and True Berry and Highlight Berry from my Smashbox L.A. Lights Blush & Highlight Palette on the cheeks and cheekbones.

The result? A super happy summer-time look that instantly lifts my spirits and makes me long for a tropical holiday at an exotic destination.
What do you think of Mandarin Rapture? Is this a look you would wear?
