Creative Tuesdays Collaboration: Summer Obsession

Hey Everyone, 

So as much as we hate to admitt it, Unfortunately summer is coming to a end.....Tear!
For today's post I'm doing a collaboration with some of my favourite bloggers/youtubers, links will be at the end of this post.
So for this weeks  #creativetuesday the theme was "SummerObsession" 
I wasn't so creative this week due to a busy week. Here's a few snaps of some of my Summer loves for 2013

  1)   Evian Water Spray:

First up is this handy little water spray from Evian, I've been raving about this product ALL SUMMER!!!
After running out of my favourite setting spray "fix + from MAC, I picked up this bottle, I had laying around the house and was instantly blow away.
During the hot summer weather we got here in Ireland. This was my life saver, not only does it cool you down, It also refreshes your makeup and nourishes your skin.... not bad eh? and only a quarter of the price!!

2) Seventeen lip crayon:
I bought this baby for a PLL tutorial and it has become my favourite day to day, go to lipstick
It's as pigmented as a lipstick, glides on like a lip butter and lasts as long as a lip stain. Perfect all in one for my hard working ladies.

3) Pastel Nail polishes

Yup! It wouldn't be summer without out some pastel in our lives
This summer I was loving these Essence Nail polishes, for only 1.49 they are pretty FAN-TASTIC!
(hello marshmellow,wanna be your sunshine)

For my everyday job, I need strong polishes as my poor hands are always overworked, Nail polishes don't last the hour... But China Glaze polishes are super strong and last a few days depending on your top coat.
This shade "tantalize me" is my favourite, It appears lilac but in certain lights it looks pink.

4) Apocalips
Need I say more, These babies have taken the world by storm.
Is it a lipgloss? Is it a lipstick? Who knows but the are pretty damn pigmented and long lasting!
Defo a must have this Summer and for A/W 2013.


      5) Blank Canvas Cosmetics

We all know I'm pretty obsessed with this brand, Not only is it a Irish brand and extremely affordable 
but It's also the best freaking brand in the world, Beating MAC with their incredible brush range and quality!!
Now they are moving onto palettes....
This is the best highlighting/contouring palette for any makeup fan or makeup artist.
You have everything you need in one palette.
Don't forgot to use SARAH at checkout for 10% off.

6) Blush Cosmetics

Blush cosmetics is a new high-end Irish Brand.
Used in salons all over the country, they have now decided to sell their products to the public.
I was blow away by this foundation. It is pale enough for the Irish skin, feels nourishing on the skin and gives a airbrushed matte powder finish <3
Email info@blush.ie with your order and mention "makeupbysaz" for 25% off

Check out these fab ladies to see what their loving this Summer.....

Lusting Over Stripes

Hey Guys, 
Stripes again???? Yes It's true I'm lusting over stripes.... 

Totally fell in LOVE with this oasis skirt even tho it's so similar to my midi skirt I just loved the lengh and the shape, looks so cute and feminine 
Of course I had to finish it off with a pop of colour.
Ankle boots add a bit of edge to this outfit and makes it a little more casual for work as I'm on my feet all day, but kitten heels would totally rock this outfit :)

Blouse: Oasis (old)
Skirt/Statement chain: Oasis (New)
Bag/Boots: Primark

Love Always
