The sun is out, the weather is glorious & there's nothing better than heading outside to enjoy it.
I mean, if you're in the UK, you've got to make the most of these rarities whenever you can! So when I had an evening out planned, I thought I'd make a post & share some of my new & old Summer makeup favourites.
The general idea was dewy skin, a soft smokey eye & peachy nude lips. Nothing too heavy for a muggy evening, but a little something more than I'd wear on a day to day basis!
On my eyes I tried out my shiny new Stila In The Light Palette - now I know I'm about 10 blogging years behind with this one - but I had a Boots gift voucher to spend, and this has been on my mind for so long, I figured now was the time to invest. And I'm SO glad I chose this. It's amazing!
I applied Sunset all over the lid, Kitten in the inner corner and Gilded Gold on the outer edge and underneath my lower lashes - which are all so buttery and pigmented, it's crazy. Followed by the waterproof brown eye pencil smudged out on both the waterline and along my top lash-line. This pencil is so soft and smudgy, yet once it's set - it's staying in place. My eyelids have a tendency to eat anything I put on their, so I was amazed when I came home five hours later to see that it was still exactly where I put it! It's love.
Finally onto lips - I knew I wanted something easy as we were going to be eating (burgers, of course) so I thought the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector would be a good choice. However, I often find that shade 02 Apricot just doesn't have enough colour and can make me look a little bit washed out, so I decided to apply Mac's Naked Lip Liner underneath and was quite happy with the outcome!
