Summer Days

Hi everyone! I can't believe how hot it's been today. Like seriously, sizzling, cold shower hot (I actually just had a cold shower - THE most amazing feeling after being in the sweltering sun all day!) I've spent my day lazing in the sun and trying (and failing) to cool down. I think it was about 30 degrees today, which is the hottest it's been here in a very long time. This afternoon I decided enough is enough, we NEED to buy a paddling pool (so what if the heat is only here for two days) so went and got this baby. It's a really good size and I'm hoping tomorrow will be just as hot so I can put it to good use! 

Anyway, as the sun was shining I decided to go all out on the summery hair and make up-front. Summer make up is my absolute favourite; I love creating gorgeous, dewy, glowy looks for myself, and slapping on the fake tan always makes me feel better too! As for summer hair; I'm all about loose waves and pretty plaits, and don't think you can ever go wrong with a floral hair accessory. 
Here's my look for today - 
Face: Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Sand Beige mixed with Maybelline Sun Glow Bronzing Booster Make Up in Bronze, MAC MSF in Golden Lariat, W7 Blush in Diamond Pink
Eyes: Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Sin all over lid and Sidecar in crease, Collection 2000 Fast-stroke Eyeliner, Boots Eyelashes in Natural Volume
Lips: YSL Rouge Volupt in #30

In all honesty I couldn't really bothered to do much with my hair today, so thought a simple messy side-plait would suffice. I'm absolutely rubbish when it comes to doing neat plaits, so will always embrace the messiness. I added the cute floral headband from Primark to prettify it up a bit. As for make up, there's nothing too far from the ordinary here, apart from adding a bit more highlight than usual to make myself 'glow'. The blush and bronze I used were also quite shimmery so they add to the whole glowy effect. 


What did everyone get up to in the sunshine today? I hope you all had a fab weekend!

  37. Well I think you look GORGEOUS and your make up looks AMAZING!! Its so fresh and summery not tacky and cheap, so maybe Emma Brown should go and get her eyes tested as she clearly isn't seeing what every other person is!
