Logo By Erin Applebee

My Liptember Team ‘Rainbow Pouts’

I’ve teamed up with some incredible makeup lovers for my Liptember team, since July we have been working together to come up with an name, logo ideas and social media for our team. We signed up to the liptember site to make it official and so we could take donations through our team’s own donation page.

I took our ideas and turned that into our team logo, If you didn’t know I have a background in graphic design I wouldn’t say I’m a professional Its not my job but I have studied in graphic design and digital design in the past. I used what I knew to put together a logo and media that we could use to promote our team during Liptember.

I am so excited to join the other MUA’s in raising funds for Liptember as it is such a great cause.
I have had anxiety for most of my life and I know other friends and family have been dealing with mental illness too and it’s not a great way to live when you can’t find the help or just that ray of light to see you thought those dark times. So this is why I am doing this and I really hope we can raise lots of money this September.

I am going to mix and match vibrant colours to lighten up the month and bring some joy into the world and I hope you will join us along the way. ๐Ÿ’‹”
