Simple outfit & make up look!

It's all in the detail...

This outfit is perfect for a nice spring/summer casual evening. I am wearing skinny jeans with a plain baggy top. Remember to clench your waist in with a belt - I have opted for a thin one, this is to avoid looking like I'm pregnant.

Wear a clutch to dress up the look. Try to wear statement earrings or necklace to give the outfit a focus point. Skip this step if you are wearing bright prints - opt for plain jewellery instead.

TIP: Lighter coloured earrings work really well with brunettes as they stand out more, If you are blonde.. then darker coloured earrings such as black would look amazing.

Excuse my messy hair, I washed it last night and slept on it, this was the wild outcome :) I couldn't be bothered, simple!


On the face I have: Bobbi Brown tinted moisturiser. Benefit Boing concealer.
On the cheeks I have: Nars Laguna on cheeks, Body shop matt blusher.
On the lips I have: Body Shop yes yes yes tentalising lip butter and mac oak lipliner to line lips.
On the eyes I have: Body Shop shimmer cubes palette 18, applied with fingers. Body shop liquid eyeliner on upper lash line. Bodyshop divide and multiply mascara (GREAT btw) and mac black funk eyeliner on waterline
The eye's took no more than a few mintues, applying with the fingers made it super quick!

Body Shop shimmer cubes palette 18

Let me know what you think and if you liked the "outift" part :) Enjoy the rest of your Sunday. x

Gorgeous! Love the whole look :0 Make up is flawless as usual. And good for you standing up to the haters. Jealousy just isn't pretty is it? :) x

Make up Crunch! said...

What a beautiful outfit! I love white, it looks amazing next to your dark skin and the sandals are fab, I have to wear flats as broke my toe a couple of years ago wearing uber high shoes and it's set so it can't bend, niice! And I agree with LottieB, women who cannot appreciate another womans beauty and success is NOT a sister! You're fabulous, bugger em!

Nichola said...

Ahh this is such a gorgeous outfit!!! Where did you get the top from btw? It's lovely! Love the make-up too, stunning! :] x

Make up Crunch! said...

on a different post you said your extensions are feeling dry... the way I combat this is to use the following products and it seems to work, it's down to them not actually being attached and not getting the natural oils.. ok.. Before I go to bed I apply Elvive Royal Jelly leave in night serum, this makes a HUGE difference, then plait your hair and spray with L'oreal Play Ball Sunshine, it won't get greasy I promise! when you wash your hair, instead of serum try Brylcreme original, just about a 10p size dollop and really work it into the extensions, it smooths the cuticle out way more than serum.. xx

bubblegarm said...

Thanks girls :) xx
