Top Summer Makeup Picks

Hello! Today I am going to sharing the products that I am loving at the moment and will continue to love throughout the summer months!

 Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream - Light

In the summer I tend to use more BB creams than foundations. I find them more comfortable on the skin and it feels like you are not wearing makeup because it is basically a tinted moisturiser. This one from Maybelline lasts well and is a great match for my skin. It also has a SPF 30 which is great for protection against the sun.

Benefit Hervana Blush

This is a gorgeous selection of colours that transforms into a pale pink sheen on the cheeks when swirled together. I really love this blush and get a lot of use from it in the summer time. These boxed blushes from Benefit also smell amazingly of roses which is a nice touch.

MAC Soft and Gentle MSF

I won't go on about this product too much as I have featured it quite a lot on my blog! I basically wear this all year round but in summer this looks especially incredible! It adds such a beautiful golden sheen to your face and makes you look sun kissed and radiant!

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

This palette is used a lot by me in the summer. It has a gorgeous array of rose gold shades and looks especially amazing with blue eyes - which I have!

MAC Lipsticks in Lovelorn (L) and Peach Blossom (R)

I have been loving wearing these two MAC shades at the moment. They are perfect colours for the summer months and as they are less in your face they don't need topped up often. These are both very comfortable on the lips and feel like a lip balm to me!

Thankyou for reading this post! What products do you love in the summer? I would love to hear. K x

Spring NOTD

Hello everyone, today I am going to be sharing with you the colour I have on my nails at the moment!

This is Barry M 'Blue Moon' and this is a beautiful pastel baby blue colour. I love wearing this shade in the spring/summer as it is a brighter pastel which I think is perfect for this time of year. I love Barry M nail polishes and I have quite a few spring/summer shades which I am really enjoying wearing at the moment! What shades do you love to wear on your nails in the spring time? K x

My Perfect Nude Lip

Hello! Today I am going to be sharing with you the products I use to create my favourite nude lip. It slightly resembles the 'Kylie Jenner lip' more than the concealer lip look, just because that I think it suits me more.

Rimmel Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Lipliner in 'Spice
This is the liner I apply first, this is a mauve shade with a hint of brown.
With 'Spice' lipiner on.

MAC 'Faux' Lipstick
I then apply this lipstick over the top of the lipliner to create my nude lip! It also makes it a lot more creamy and easy to wear with the lipstick over top and it makes it not as matte as a lipliner on it's own. This is again a mauve shade with a hint of brown and pink. This is my favourite nude lipstick for my skin tone.

With 'Spice' lipliner and 'Faux' lipstick.

I wear this lip combo quite frequently and I love it. I often wear pinks so it is a nice change to wear something a little more sophisticated on the lips. Thankyou for reading, what is your favourite lip combo at the moment? K x

Review: Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Blushes

Hello everyone! Today I am going to be reviewing the Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Blushes. I have had these blushes for about 5 months now and wanted to share what I thought of them with you!

L-R All I Think About Is You, Hard Day, Bang Bang You're Dead

All I Think About Is You - This is a very pretty peachy pink colour with some dark pink veining.

Hard Day - This blush slightly reminds me of MAC 'Soft and Gentle' MSF when on the cheeks. This would be a great cheaper alternative as it has those champagne/golden tones to it.

Bang Bang You're Dead - This is a blue toned pink with slight shimmer. I think this one has to be my favourite! It's perfect for a natural makeup look and I just love it!

These blushes are £2.50, which is just amazing for the quality that you get! They are highly pigmented, even more so than more luxury, expensive blushes that I own. The lasting power is also very good. Overall I would recommend these to anyone, it just goes to show that you don't need to spend a lot to get a great quality product and I think Makeup Revolution as a brand definitely show this. Thankyou for reading, have you tried these blushes before?

First Impressions: Urban Decay Naked Basics 2

Hello everyone! Guess what?! It's my blogs first birthday today! I have had such a great year blogging and hope there will be many more to come! Anyway onto the post!
I have such a problem when it comes to eyeshadow palettes, I buy them way too often and I feel like I need them all! If you love makeup and especially eyeshadow you will get where I'm coming from! I received a very exciting package the other day, and it was the Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 palette that I had ordered! Today I am going to be sharing my first impressions with you and possibly in the near future I will let you know my opinions on it!

All of the shades are matte apart from the first shade (SKIMP) which has a slight shimmer to it. I'm glad they added a shimmery colour so the palette is more versatile.

The colours seem very pigmented and creamy upon swatching. I'll just have to see how they apply and look on the eyes!

Overall my first impressions of this palette are great. It's highly pigmented, creamy, it has a good colour selection and I think this little palette will be great for everyday simple makeup and travel. I'm very excited to try this out and I'll report back to you all on how I get on with it! Thankyou so much for reading!
