Vintage-inspired eyes - I have been watching Lisa Eldridge's vintage make-up inspired videos recently which got me curious as to what people wore back in the days.
If I'd have been in the 60's/70's, I would have loved to rock this look. It is an understated version of what they used to do in those times.
I chose a pastel blue with a satiny finish so it does not look as harsh as a matte colour. Following the winged eyeliner trend in those days, I attempted a winged out liner too but smudged it to create a softer effect. And a white colour on the waterline never fails to brighten a look. Strong brows were really a huge trend then, so I attemtped to thicken the shape of my brows without making them appear sketched.
Dusky Blushers - I am seriously in love with deeper blush colours as the summer has arrived. Raspberry tones are especially my favourite. Currently I am in love with Sleek's Blusher in Sunrise. It is a beautiful reddish copper with shimmer.
It contours and defines the cheeks automatically as well as giving that pop of colour. I have no idea why this shade is so underrated? There is absolutely nothing about it which would make it unwearable for those with paler skin tones as well, so don't judge it by the colour in the pan.
Nude Nails - This one is Sheer Peche by Orly and is a gorgeous flesh toned nude color with a hint of peach-pink in it, meaning it will not give your hands a washed out effect and is more likely to flatter most skin tones. Plus it has a gorgeous glossy finish to it and lasts for a good few days. I am wearing three coats below however one-two coats gives a natural french manicure effect which is quite pretty.
French manicure in a bottle? Pretty much I would say!
These dinky 5.3ml bottles are available in Boots in 48 colours for £5 each. Hard to resist on a trip down to Boots I must say. I love their range of shades. Aren't they super cute?
