Summer skin and outfit post

Since my holiday (yes, I will shut up about it soon, promise!) My skin has been really smooth and the blemishes have gone down. I've got used to wearing very little makeup at all now. I wanted to take a picture to show what it looks like and what products I've used for this summery look. This picture was taken just now, so some of the makeup has come off. Sorry about my lazyness!

Face: Body Shop tinted moisturiser all over
Bourjois blush pot in 33 Lilas D'or
Prestige minerals bronzer as a contour (not that you can see any of this in the picture!)
YSL Touche Eclait as a highlighter around eyes
Estee Lauder eyeshadow quad in 02 Amber Honey
Rimmel soft kohl eye liner in 071 pure white
ELF liquid liner in brown
2 coats of Benefit Bad Gal mascara (free from Glamour mag, very nice actually!)
Lips: Carmex lip balm!

Also, that's my new pashmina from a crazy man on a stall in Turkey. I love the colours, and I literally haven't taken it off since I've returned home. Ew!

Oh this is another picture I took earlier in the day. I didn't want to put it up for obvious reasons that I look hideous, and am in a very dodgy (or rather, doggy haha) position crouching over the mess in my room trying to get to the mirror. But you can see my face a bit better...

As for outfits, I HATE asking people to take pictures of me, it is very embarrassing. Also, I try to refrain from taking mirror pictures as I think they look a bit tacky. However, I have managed to salvage one from my holiday. It's not my favourite, but it'll do.

Top: Random boutique in East London, wedges: New Look (very old), shorts: Topshop, clutch: Shellys, London.

Feel free to tell me what you think?! If anyone has any tips on how to take good outfit pots or anything, please let me know! I need your help!


  1. I'm loving your outfit babes! x

  2. That's still 9 different makeup products, you don't need all that hon! Never did! I've cut mine down to 5 max at the min.x

  3. I think I was quite unlear when I wrote this post... I started off wanting to do a minimal look, then ended up just playing about with lots of products and learning to contour etc. I don't put this many things on my face for a natural look! Will do a proper minial post soon sorry about the confusion!

  4. Ahh fair enough then! I'm loving the white eyeliner...never thought about using it before, i always just do dark eyes. Getting a bit boring with my look really. Thinking of dying my hair a totally different colour too...i'm so bored!

  5. I love that mascara from Glamour :)


I love talking to people so please leave a comment and I'll do my best to reply as soon as possible!
