Today is all about Plump It Up. I couldn't have picked a better shade to start off #24Days, as it is one of the most gorgeous TwistUps out there.

Released for the Fall but Plump It Up would be an all year round shade for me. It belongs to the brighter group but not too intense either. I did wear it to work a few times so far :)

An option to wear a strong colour like Plump It Up, for those who are shy toward bright lips, is to sheer it out - lightly line the lips with the tip of the pencil and apply a few dots in the middle of the lips, blend out with your finger.

Note that, for the purpose of #24Days, all pictures taken should be of the TwistUp of the day itself, no coloured base underneath or gloss on top (unless otherwise noted).

Another pic in a different lighting, and yes it is still bright. 

Since this series for me is also #24ReasonstoSmile, I am trying very hard to include pics of me actually smiling when I can :)

Other products used in this look:
- Maybelline Fit Me Shine-free gel stick foundation in 230 Natural Buff
- It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eyes full coverage concealer in Neutral Medium
- ArtDeco Bronzing Glow blusher
- Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Inked in Pink
- Essence 3D eyeshadow in Irresistible Purr-ple
- Sephora + Pantone Universe liner in Charcoal
- Annabelle Le Big Show mascara in Black
- Avon Ultra Luxury brow liner in Dark Brown.

If you need more pictures of Plump It Up, check back my Annabelle Fall II FOTD where I took pic with better sun light.

I'd love to see Annabelle TwistUps on you, leave me a comment or tweet me your pics. I know we all "dare to be colourful" within the colour range we are comfortable with :)
