My summer ball outfit and makeup! 

I’ve had such a busy two weeks! Last ever exam, finishing uni, summer ball and I’ve got a job before I even arrived back home! But between the stress the partying made it worth while!

So for my end of uni ball I needed to make slightly more effort than a usual night out in my shorts and converse. Instead of a dress I went for a jumpsuit. I bought this last year for a cruise I went on so I was dying to wear it again. It was only £7! From h&m in the sale, so obviously won’t be available now but moral of the story: keep your eyes on sale rails! You don’t need to break the bank for a fancy outfit! 

The original outfit had a much higher neckline but to add a little something I altered it slightly to have a much lower plunge. This is totally out of my comfort zone, especially as I have nothing in that department to show off! But I like to think it looked classy!

I added minimal jewellery and my highest black chunky heels. Then I decided to curl my hair with a thin wand and add a ton of hairspray. 

For makeup I’d bought mac’s creme de nude, so I was desperate to wear that with a dark eye. I did a kind of cut crease with some Mac gold glitter, and some huge lashes. Hard to see in the picture but I thought it added some drama to the look.

So that’s it! Danced in to the early hours and now I’m putting my feet up for a well deserved rest!

MOTD: Bronze summer makeup look.


It’s been too long since I last posted, I’ve been so busy! June seems to be such a manic time for everyone just lately. I thought I share a makeup look I’ve been loving lately, to start embracing the summer!

This look is one you can wear in the day or night, with glowing skin and a statement lip. 

Products used:

Nars sheer glow foundation 

Rimmel stay matte powder

Beauty uk brow powder 

Rimmel clear brow gel

Revolution eyeshadow palette 

Collection felt tip liner

Lashsensational mascara

Kiki Milano bronzer

Mua baked highlighter

Rimmel lasting finish lip liner in spice 

Collection lipstick in rosewood

I wanted to keep my skin really light and dewy so I used my sheer glow foundation. I didn’t use any blusher, just heaps on bronzer to create the sun kissed look. I did a slight contour but nothing harsh, then added lots of highlighter to the tops of my cheeks, lips and nose.

For the eyes I applied a neutral base, then blended a dark brown in the crease. I added a shimmery rose gold to the lid and a highlight under my brow. I then did my usual flick eyeliner and mascara.

Then I wacked on my liner an lipstick. This lipstick is so moisturising but really pigmented.  

I loveeee this look at the moment, it goes with nearly every outfit. You could always swap the lip colour for any other bold colour, maybe a bright pink or red? The base and eyes will go with any bold lip so mix it up. 

Hope this gives you some inspiration!

MOTD: Wearable Navy Smokey Eye.


I wanted to try something different with my makeup today and once I tried this I instantly loved it. It’s quirky and something different to try. It may seem scary… Blue? Really? But yep, just make sure you get it right…


Firstly I ran a bronzer along my crease, to warm up the look and as a good crease colour. I then chose a matte, navy blue and applied it across my lid. Apply it sparingly, it’s easier to build up then blend out. Blend up to the crease colour and blend out. I applied another layer to intensify the colour. 

I then ran a black eyeshadow accroas my lash lines above and below, not being too neat to create a smokey look. I then ran a highlight under my brow.


For the rest of the look keep it simple. A flawless matte base, with extra concealer. I added a little bronzer and highlight. Then I kept the lips nude.

You can amp up the look for night time by adding a glitter on top and a winged liner. 

Hope you liked this, let me know if you’ll be trying it! 

This pallete was the kardashian kardazzle pallete.
