Soft neutral make up

Yesterday I had a rubbish day and accidentally may have treated myself to a little bit of mac for the first time in ages.

Enter MSF in ‘adored’ and lipstick in ‘angel’

Angel is a classic soft peachy nude and adored is a gorgeous coral and gold shimmer.

Today we went out for lunch so I obviously had to have a play with both of my new toys….

I loved this look and it almost survived the gym….
Do you own Adored or Angel? What are your Mac must haves?

Bright summer lip colours

So you have seen my summer nail choices now how about some lipsticks?

My summer make up is pretty simple due to laziness/heat exhaustion/being tired!

My favourite make up look of the moment is a neutral eye with black liner, bronzer and a bright lip.

Here are some of my favourites.

As you can see its about the pinks and corals!

First up Viva Glam Gaga, the palest and least wearable of the lot really, this is a lustre finish and a lilac pink colour. It does cling to any imperfections and apply it too heavily and you look like you have escaped from Jersey Shore. However it is a fun shade for a night out.

Show Orchid. Everyone should own this. It is bright in your face blue tones pink with a tiny hint of shimmer. Makes your teeth look whiter and your eyes brighter. Instant confidence in a tube.

Viva Glam Nicki. Again not the most wearable. This is a bright pale coral. Has a nasty tendency to make your teeth look a bit yellow but great with a coral blush and definitely a unique shade.

Sleek Coral Reef. Simple orangey bright coral. Wearable and knocks your socks off.

Rimmel Kate 110. Slightly more red toned than Coral Reef but really they are very similar. Very long lasting.

Mac Impassioned. Bright pinky coral. Your mum will hate this. Lasts entire days and definitely a crowd stopper.

And without. Please excuse the ginger tail in the background….the cat thought this was a game made up for him!

My favourites? Show Orchid and Impassioned. They aren’t for the faint hearted but they are brilliant summer shades.

Any of these take your fancy? What is your summer make up look?
