Summer Make-up Look

Hey guys,

The sun is still shining yay!!  I know I keep going on about it but seriously when do we ever get weather like this in London?!  So unfair I'm stuck at work though.  However, that doesn't mean we can't still dress and look summery in the office so here is a make-up look that I created.  I think this look is very versatile and can be worn for everyday or you could glam it up if you wanted for a summer night out.

To start off I primed my skin with Body Shop tea tree pore minimiser all over my skin.  Then I took Benefit You Rebel tinted moisturiser and also buffed that over my skin.  I wanted to use a tinted moisturiser instead of a foundation as I felt foundation can sometimes be a bit heavy in the summer and I wanted something light on my skin that didn't look like I'd caked it on.

Then I took Garnier roll on concealer under my eye and Rimmel Stay Matte powder over my t-zone and undereye to set the make-up.

After this I used Gunmetal from the Naked palette all over my eyelids.  I then took Naked and worked this in the crease and outer corner, making sure to blend it all in.  Then I took a matte black by Mac (Nehru) and pulled this along my lashline and outer corner, again blending it all in.  Then I used Dior Blackout mascara on my lashes and a little Virgin from the Naked palette for my inner corner.

After that I started on my eyebrows.  I have quite thick, dark eyebrows so I don't really need to fill them in much so instead I just brush through them with MUA eyebrow gel and then again take Virgin and put that along the brow bone.

I then went back to the eyes and drew the thinest line of liquid eyeliner.  I didn't want to make the eyes look too dark and heavy as this is a summer look and would look too harsh and 'clubbing' like.  I used my Barry M Wink marker pen as it's dead easy to use and I haven't got the steadiest of hands!  Once this was dry I used a pencil brush to just smug it across slightly.

Then I took Benefit Thrrrob blusher on my cheeks.  This is a really pretty cool pink colour and perfect for summer.  Definitely one of my favourite blushers as I'm a real lover of pink blushers.  After that I used Fake Bake Bronzy Babe on my cheek bones as a highlighter.  This bronzer has a real shimmer in it so I only really like to use it as a highlighter and it looks lovely on the collar bones also!

Lastly I put Mac Impassioned on my lips and some vaseline for a bit of shine.  I'm not really a fan of lipglosses so I prefer to use vaseline instead :)

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here .

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
