Summer clothes and makeup haul!

It’s that time of year where we all rush and start buying bright summery clothes in the hope of a glimpse of sunshine. But if your lucky enough to be leaving the country you can swap the umbrellas for some shorts!

So I’ve started getting stuff in preparation for my Vegas getaway… Be prepared to see a lot of shorts.

Lace shorts- Topshop £15 


These were in the sale and are so gorgeous. They flatter me so well and the lace detail is so pretty. They can be paired with any colour top but I’m going to pair it with either black or white.

Cropped vests- Topshop 2 for £10


These are perfect easy tops to throw on on holiday. And as I’m always in high waisted jeans they’re perfect for everyday too.

Leather platform sandals- Miss Selfridge, £20


These were part of the sale at the moment and are so gorgous. Being platforms they are flat and comfy but still give you height, perfect for walking around at night. The shiny band adds something unique to the standard shoes everywhere at the moment.

White skirt – Miss Selfridge £17 


This is so heavy and good quality! I love the detail at the bottom and white goes perfect with everything. This is something completely different to my usual style. I usually only go for fitted plain styles so something girly and shaped is a nice change.

Shorts- H&M £8


More shorts. These are light jersey perfect for the day and the pattern is really quirky and funky. They do a variety of colours.

Shorts- Primark £4 each


And even more shorts. These aren’t amazing quality but it’s not like I’m going to wear them much other than on holiday. There’s so many styles and for that price you can’t go wrong.

Makeup


I was desperately in need of some makeup so I had a little splurge. I needed some more of my beloved revlon foundation, which now comes with a pump! Happy days! Then I got the concealer to match. Then I got this nyx liquid lipstick I’ve been dying for this for ages… It’s actually a massive let down but I’m going to do a full review soon. Then I got a matching liner from Kiko Milano.


Boots are doing a fab offer at the moment. If you spend £15 on revlon you get this free set worth £30! It’s full of full sized products! Comes with a eyeshadow palette, liner, nail varnish and lip butter. 

So that’s it for now! Hopefully the wonderful British weather gets better so I can make use of all those shorts!

Let me know any other bargains!

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!
