Make Up Look: Stepping into Summer

Hey guys. I can't believe its already June! It feels like Christmas was not too long ago! Where is this year going?! I'm not going to complain though, as summer is just around the corner and I don't know about you, but I love me some sunshine! 


To celebrate the arrival of summer, I incorporated that into today's make up, by using tropical hues and summery pops of colour. You could say this was my "hurry up summer, I want to wear brights!" look or my "sundance" to try and persuade the sunshine to come out (and I think it worked as I did this look Friday and Sunday it was gorgeous!). 


Hope you enjoy :)












For this look I used the Sleek Monaco palette. I really do have a special place in my heart for Sleek palettes, I love their pigmentation and blendability and they definitely get a lot of use from me! I have highlighted what colours I used below.





I also used the Lime Crime Chinadoll palette in Goldfish for the bright colour pop in my inner corner. I do feel it was a little too "brass"  and I dunno... something doesn't fit with it in this look. Maybe it leans too gold or too yellow, I'm not sure, its not my best and I'm not entirely happy with it but decided to upload it anyways! Either way I hope you like todays look and it might even inspire you to inject some colour into your life! Summer is the PERFECT time for colourful eyeshadow - so if you're dying to start using some, now is the time to get experimenting. :)


Hope everyone is having a nice Monday! I just woke up from a night shift and am about to catch up with Glee! :)

  1. I love the tropical colours! It reminds me of a beach in hawaii or somewhat!
    I though I would also mention that hellocotton is gone now (I'm so sad). So the link at the bottom of your post doesn't work:(

  3. Looks lovely, can understand what you mean with the yellow though, it maybe needs another shade between the green to the yellow, or just a more musky yellow :) xx

  4. I love this look! I have a minty blue shadow I purchased from MUA last year but I never know how to wear it. It's so pretty in the outer third, I may have to give that a go next time I am in the mood for some color :)
