I decided to get all Spring-ified and do pretty pink cheeks with gold highlights and a fresh, bright pale turquoise eye. Here are the products I used to create this look:
Jemma Kidd Pro Skin Rescue Bio Complex Veil (as a base)
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation
Bobbi Brown Corrector (Light to Medium Bisque)
Estee Lauder Maximum Cover Foundation (used as concealer)
Clinique Redness Solutions Instant Relief Pressed Powder
Korres Monoi Oil Bronzing Powder (Sunglow Warm)
Sleek Contour Kit (Light)
Accessorize Merged Baked Blusher in Starlet
Topshop Highlighter in Sunbeam
Benefit Brows a-go-go kit
Estee Lauder Clear Brow Gel
Mac Paint Pot in Soft Ocre
Accessorize e/s in Mermaid (all over lid)
(The Accessorize Mermaid e/s reminded a bit of Mac Pigment in Mutiny which I also have so I wanted to do a comparison swatch below. The accessorize e/s is slightly more green but it actually has better pigmentation and sheen!).
Korres Jasmine Lip Butter
Because I used the vibrant turquoise eyeshadow, I just wanted to keep the lips toned down and simple so my trusty Korres Lip Butter did the trick.
Now onto a quick Oufit Of The Day (you'll have to excuse my zombie-like expression in the first pic!ha ha) . This is one of the dresses Maddie got me when I was over in Ireland. It's the perfect fit for me and I think it makes the most of my waist, slims down my arms and is a great length for my legs. The thing I love about this dress is that you can dress it down for daytime with black tights but if you want to glam it up with a retro vibe for night time, then you can team with soft, wavy hair, a red lip and platform shoes.
Dress: A Wear
Shoe Boots: Next
Coat: New Look
Bag: Bought it on holiday
The retro tea dresses that are around at the moment really flatter my figure and the pretty floral prints make me more in the mood for Spring/Summer. You do have to be careful what you wear with them though or they could look a bit mumsy! You can keep it modern by wearing them with a tougher shoe boot or adding a statement belt.
