Black+Grey+Smokey+Eye2

Black & Grey Smokey Look $

Last weekend I had a friends birthday drinks so a group of us went out to celebrate! We were going to Kensington Rooftop Gardens in London so I wanted to look ‘glam’! I decided on a very smokey black and grey look. Check out my face of the night below…



♥ Face:
NARS Pro Prime, Pore-refining primer 
Revlon ColorStay Foundation in 180 (normal/dry skin)
FYF Impeccable Mineral Loose Powder in Medium (loving this powder, review to follow!)
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess, Sea Star Bronzer Blush 
He- Shi Bronzer, all over face
NARS Super Orgasm Illuminator (Gorgeous! Review to follow)
BobbiBrown Browshaper

♥ Eyes:

MAC Black paint pot (all over lid as base, softly blended into crease)
MAC Black Tied eye shadow (all over lid)
MAC Scene eyeshadow (crease & along lower lash line)
MAC Copperplate eyeshadow (blended into crease)
MAC Shroom eyeshadow (applied to tear duct)
New CID Cosmetics i-open pencil (applied under brow bone & blended as brow highlight)
MAC Smolder kohl liner (waterline)
Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner pen (upper lash line)
Bourjois Volume &Fast Perfect Mascara

♥ Lips:
Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Sugar Rush

It was such a fun night out! Great music so definitely had a boogie! Here some more photos of us girls…







Spot anything different about me in these photos? Well, yes, I had a haircut! However, if I am honest, I’m not really happy with it because I came out with more of an actual fringe, rather than a deep side fringe…Also when going out that night I was a bit frustrated with my hair because he’d styled the fringe to the opposite side that I normally wear it and it was just annoying me the whole time. Think ill be growing it out a little (hopefully that won’t take that long) and then i’ll get it re-cut to more side, blended style. Outfit wise I am wearing a new dress that I recently got at Zara for only £29.99. I received a lot of compliments on the dress so feel it was a good little purchase! You can get it online here.

Also, am loving the NARS Pore-Refining Primer that I wore that night! It recently launched as part of their Pro Prime series. It’s an oil-free primer that instantly refines the look of pores, regulates shine, and creates a matte surface to the skin for smooth and long-wearing makeup application. Mineral Powders manage oil in the T-zone while blurring the look of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Key ingredients include:
* Natural Bisabolol & Butterbur Root Extract, known to calm and soothe skin
* Vitamins A, C and E, known to protect the skin from free radical damage
Plus its oil-free, paraben-free, synthetic fragrance-free, non-comedogenic and dermatologist-tested.

It makes my skin super smooth (which allows easier & longer lasting makeup application) plus it controls shine on my face all day and night! Great new product, find it at www.narscosmetics.co.uk for £24.

Spring time in London#

Hey lovelies,
Yay on Saturday it was a such a nice sunny spring day in London! At the moment I’m really into my pink and coral colours – love them, they make me feel so summery and girlie :) 
Thought I’d share my outfit of the day:

Light blue jeggings: H&M
Light pink cotton top: recently purchased in the Netherlands at de Bijenkorf (available online)
Silk Scarf: Alexander McQueen
Nude/Pink ballet flats: Topshop
Necklace: Tiffany & Co
Watch: Guess

On this nice day I ended up meeting a friend for a yummy brunch in South Kensington and afterwards we strolled through Hyde Park and enjoyed a beverage there whilst soaking up some rays in the sun lounges!
 It was a little windy so I teamed my outfit with a ZARA grey blazer.

Saturday afternoon I went to the hairdressers for a cut and colour..
My fringe ended up a bit shorter than was planning on, so am still ‘adjusting’ to it haha! xoxo
