Listen now! — Red Lights – Single (Tiësto)

red light

Tiesto’s answer to Avicii’s ‘Wake me up” – a smooth juxtaposition of strumming guitars, high notes from a plaintiff male vocalist and strong shades of melancholy to go against his rival’s smash hit. Heavy and rapid beats guide the listener to a deep chorus in this exclusive release to kick off 2014.

MAC lipstick: Cremesheen Hang-up

IMG_1276

A beautiful deep berry purple lipstick – the more you apply, the deeper and more wine-coloured the hue gets. The ‘vampirish’ effect gives your lips a sophisticated look and may somewhat create the illusion of whiter teeth!

Pair the Cremesheen Hang-up with a simple eye makeup in the evenings. With a dewy and creamy finish and Mac’s signature divine scent, this long lasting lipstick is one for keeps.

Also don’t forget to scroll through and enjoy the other submissions! Here are some of my favourites:

Simple monochrome headshot print of a beast with tangled hair/fur that shapes the design neatly when viewed from a distance. Overall symmetry with subtle non-symmetrical features such as the beast's fangs make for a smooth composition in its entirety. Curious accessories like the hat and double glasses complete the design, add a quirky feel to it, and prompt viewers to picture a 4-eyed beast.

Great balance of colour and the arrangement of butterfly shapes leaves balanced distributions of empty regions in the design. The design plays into the shape of the t shirt and would create a fitting blend into the wearer's shoulders, arms and neck.

chöok's comments: instant identification of the "beast" (tiger) while the bright red "HYPEBEAST" splash creates a vivid contrast with the otherwise monochrome print. This draws attention to the beast's eye region,  creating mystery and interest. The tiger's sweater sets up an urban look and the darker regions at the bottom of the shirt complete the design with good balance in shade.
