Pearls and Pastels

The beautiful sunny weather over the past few days has inspired me to introduce a little more colour into my outfits. I also decided to have another go with false eyelashes - I bought Eyelure's Girls Aloud "Kimberly" lashes from Boots (I'm not really a Girls Aloud fan but they were reduced to £3.50 and the Kimberly lashes looked nice - long and thick but still quite natural looking).

Here is the resulting Face and Outfits from last night:

Make-up used:


No 7 Instant Radiance Concealer
17 Translucent Pressed Powder
Sleek Face Contour Kit
Mac Mineralize Blusher in Dainty


NYX Glitter Cream Palette on eyelids
Bourjous Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Brun
Maybelline Volum' Express Mascara
"Kimberly" Lashes


Natural Collection Moisture Shine Lipstick in Pink Mallow

I also tried out a wash-in, wash-out colour on my hair (haven't used one of these for years!!). I've been getting a bit bored with my hair colour, the lack of sun has made it a dull mousey brown but I'm hesitant about actually dying it...I used to dye my hair black every two weeks so feel like I'm done with hair colouring now that I've gone back to my natural colour and could also do without the upkeep and roots! However, I bought a Superdrug wash-in, wash-out colour a few weeks back and gave it a go yesterday. I chose a copper-y shade and left it on for 10 minutes in the shower. I think it has made a little bit of different:

I still have half the bottle left (it was only 97p - bargain!) so will apply it again next time I wash my hair. It's defintely made my hair shinier.

Finally - my outfit!

Pearls - Accessory Crossing @ Boots
Tshirt - H&M
Skirt - Topshop (bought in the January sales - £32 reduced to £5!)
Tights - H&M

    @ Kel - the skirt was such a fun shape to wear! Although not very easy to sit down in!

    Now I just need another excuse to wear the eyelashes felt so bare without them the day after! x
