Outfit & FOTD!

Today was lovely and hot in London and here's what I wore...


Please note this photo was taken at the end of the day after I had applied tons of Ambre Solaire spray sunscreen as we went to the park for a couple of hours. I blotted my face a zillion times and removed lots of product in the process! Not perfect!

Face: BB Skin foundation, Mac msf natural, Mac matt bronzer, Nars Sertao blush.
Lips: Mac Oak lipliner and BB concealer dabbed.
Eyes: Mac blacktrack fluidline on upper and lower lashline and Max factor false lash effect mascara.

I tried to keep it nice and simple, usually I would use a cream bronzer or blusher in the summer, but it was so hot that I didnt want to look shiney and wanted my foundation to last all day - hence using the powder produocts. I still managed to look shiney as I was sweating alot and the sunscreen was quite oily :)

The BB skin foundation is lovely, I have been wearing it the past few days and I must say it gives good coverage, I don't even need concealer under my eyes anymore. This foundation however does not give you a glow, it just looks like natural skin, which is a good thing I suppose. It depends on the look you want to achieve. If you want an excellent foundation that gives you a glow then opt for Bobbi Browns moisture rich foundation my all time favourite!!

For my outfit, I chose this strappless cotton print dress, I loveeeee the colours!!


Dress: Ted Baker
Sandals: Topshop
Necklace: Lolicoco
Bangles: Accessorize

Bonus photos!! Me and my sunglasses, I don't usually wear them that much as I look like a right poser :) but I thought I would share with you what I look like in them! I have been told I need bigger sunglasses and I am now on the hunt :)


What did you wear today? Any tips on staying cool?

Hi bubble garm

I want to say all my comments in one :D
First you look very cute in that dress and lovely sandals too :) I love the new style of your blog, white and lovely pictures. Also it is nice to see all of your mac propan eyeshadows, which is very useful for me before I go abroad soon. And it is very fun to see such great collections (gözlerimiz bayram etti :D)
