OUTFIT - Inspired by Golden Sun and Bronzed Skin
I decided to go all bronzed today seeing as the sun was shining and summer felt like it was on the horizon. I started with Dermalogica's Clean Start, Welcome Matte SPF moisturiser. Followed that with a light covering of Loreal's True Match foundation. Then I used a bronzing powder with a slight shimmer and E.L.F's highlighter stick just above the apples of the cheeks. On my eyes I mixed Models Own orange eyeshadow with some metallic shimmer dust. Then some hot pink lipstick, some definition for the brows and a tiny bit of eyeliner and Benefit's BADGal lash mascara.
Having long hair and wearing it down in the summer is a nightmare. I chose to put mine in a low bun with a slightly side swept fringe, finished off with a gold, leopard print headband.
This is one of my favourite necklaces with multiple strands. I bought it in a Topshop sale years ago and for the last year it has been tangled with another necklace. I recently managed to get them apart so now I'm able to wear it again, hurrah! You can just about see my nails which I had manicured at the Kuno Tierra spa, under Bloww just off Regents Street. The lady who did them, Michelle, was so lovely and really good at what she does. The colour is barefoot in Barcelona by OPI. Went on really easily with just one coat! I just wish I really was barefoot in Barcelona right now!
I love these sandals... even though they aren't the most comfortable. They were £12 in Primark and were just what I'd been looking for. They fasten around the ankle so there's no danger of them flying off as you frolic in the park. They were the finishing touch to my golden theme for today's outfit.
What do you love to wear when the weather gets warm?
