fresh summer look

Hey girls,
As much as we love our foundation in the summer theres nothing worse than applying foundation and having to re touch it a few times a day as the heat makes your foundation sweat off and just disappear so this year ive decided to ditch my foundation and create a fresh summer look that wont leave you feeling naked!!!

Here's what you need!!

  • blush
  • tinted moisturiser
  • lip balm
  • bronzer
  • face powder
  • eye shadow primer
  • black eye shadow
  • mascara
  • face brush
  • angled or a very thin brush
  • blush brush
  • concealer
  • concealer brush
  • under eye cream

Step 1.
Apply your under eye cream
concealer is very drying so your under eyes need all the moisture they can get.

I used mac's under eye cream

Step 2.
Take your concealer and apply it under your eyes with a thin brush or a concealer brush
remember to stay within the lines of discoloration

and stipple/pat to blend out
Remember your under eye skin is very fragile so be gentle

Step 3.
Take your tinted moisturiser
Make sure it has spf to protect your skin from the sun rays

Im using nivea's tinted moisturiser.
which doesnt break the bank currently costs 3.97 euro in tesco
and i love it!!!
it has SPF,vitamin E and light reflecting pigments which brightens up your complexion

Apply to skin in circular movements and avoid under eye area

Step 4.

Apply your eye primer im using NYX
although im not using any eye shadow today applying eye primer will conceal my lids and keep them looking matte all day.

Step 5.

Next apply your powder using a face brush.

This will set everything and keep your face looking matte all day

Step 6.

Apply your bronzer
To give you that sun kissed look

Step 7.
Take your angled brush and dip it in black eye shadow

and pad it into the base of the lashes

This will just darken your lashes and make them appear thicker
This is optional.

Step 8.

Apply your mascara

Step 9.

 apply your blush

Step 10.
lastly apply your lip balm.

and your all done :)

Fashion Ideas part 2: dresses

Hey girls,

So fashion ideas part 2 is all about dresses!!!!

Everyone needs at least one good dress in there wardrobe and the best dress you can invest in is the LBD also know as the little black dress.
Black dresses are so versatile and are a key item to any girls wardrobe.

The best tip i can give to any girl is to accessorize!!!!
You can totally transform any outfit just by adding earings,a scarf or even a head band!
Here are some of my favourite dresses :)

This dress is from primark and only cost me 14 euro
they are available in a few different colours.
these dresses are so cheap but so handy for a night on the town.
I got the black and leopard print and accessorized them with waist belts (to accentuate your waist line) gold bangles black heels.

Here i took a simple white cocktail dress and made it into 3 different outfits.
In the first picture i accessorized with pale pink heels and bracelets in the seconds picture i wore hot pink shoes and bangles and in picture three i just wore a black feather chain and black shoes.
In this picture im wearing a white bandeau dress with pale pink heals,bangles and a lil clutch bag

This dress is from hot miami styles.
This dress looks so classy and i love the blue colour and design on it.

This dress is from Miss Selfridge and costs 57 euro
This is my favourite dress its the perfect LBD it looks so classy!

These cute mid length dresses are perfect for a wedding or any special occasion
and are available every year in different colours and slightly different styles at

My last dress is a wooly dress from miss selfridge i got this during the winter and it looked so cute with leggings and a cardigan but here i dressed it up with a cute shoulder bag,bracelets and nude shoes.
 I totally transformed this casual winter dress into a cute spring dress just by simply adding a few accessories

fashion ideas part 1: The maxi dress

Hello my lovely viewers,
Im sorry I havent blogged in ages been quite busy but I have some pretty good long a waited fashions posts coming up!!!!!!
So many of ye have asked me to do fashion posts so I promise to do alot more in the coming weeks :)

ok so the first post is all about THE MAXI DRESS.

Maxi dresses have been so popular the last few years. you really cant go wrong with a maxi dress.
So today ill show you different ways of styling a simple black maxi dress!

ok so here's the maxi dress I used its just a plain black maxi you can get these in most shops.

ok so the first thing i did was accessorize
I added a long gold chain and gold bangles and a cute bag :)


Here ive added a black blazer and ditched the bangles. I love blazer's they can make any outfit classy and dressy.

you could also put a jumper over the dress for a completely different look.
Ive seen so many people wear this look i think it looks very vintage
if you have a floppy hat you can add that it would look great with this look.

you can also wear belts over the jumper to give your waist a bit of definition

or pop on a black cardigan if it gets a lil chilli put a tan waist belt over it
leopard print accessories would look amazing with the tan belt.
I wore a leopard print bangle.

or a long loose stone or wheet colour cardigan would look great, keep you warm and look more casual

or if your REALLY cold a loose wool cardi or off the should jumper would also look cute and you casual and your warm which is always a plus :)
see you can still look cute and be warm :P

Here Ive used the tan belt again but I did something a lil different :P
yes this is still the maxi dress but ive rolled it up under the belt
I got this idea from a you tube guru (ballet and pink roses) i think its a brilliant idea
it looks like a totally different dress.
I just added a pink cardi to give the look a bit of colour

Here's how I rolled up the dress

here I just took a white top and tied it into a crop top
I saw this look in a magazine and though it looked pretty cool and elegant
so I decided to try it and I think it looks so cute :)

Hope this was helpful
