When the sun is shining and the weather is hot the last thing I want to do is put on my make up and head into the sun only to feel it all melt away from my face. The products I used in this look all seem to have a miraculous staying power and can withstand a heat wave, as well as deal with the oh so very British summer rain. As soon as it gets sunny, most girls I know are straight onto the bottle tan and bronzer, but if like me you're keeping your pale skin this summer, then this is a look for you! 

I picked up this flower crown in my recent Primark Haul and I'd been dying to try out a few ideas with it. I also had a few e.l.f cosmetics orange lipsticks in my 'to wear' pile, so thought it would be most fitting to pair them both together. When wearing a statement lip I like to team it with a simple eye to make sure it doesn't overpower me, especially during the daytime. With a few tweaks this look can easily be switched to glam evening summer party style!

If you want to try this look at home, here's the full product list of everything I used:

Mac Studio Finish Concealer - NC15
Collection Lasting Finish Concealer - Fair (1)

Contour - NYX Taupe
Blush - Sleek Rose Gold

 Naked Basics Palette
Collection 24hr Felt Liner
e.l.f Cosmetics Duo Mascara*

Urban Decay Naked Basics - Naked 2 (used as brow powder)

e.l.f Cosmetics Moisturising Lipstick - Coral Cutie

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this look and if there's anything else you'd like to see me create, please do let me know in the comments xxx

  27. There many different types of fine jewellery nowadays so this guide will aim to focus on a shortlist of the most popular types. I'll be focussing on jewellery such as rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, watches and associated jewellery gifts. This kind of jewellery is usually only made by a small number of brand name jewellers who only produce high quality high value pieces. Evil Eyre Bracelet Greece

  30. Susu Sapi dan Kambing merupakan susu yang dapat kalian temui di Indonesia, akan tetapi, susu sapi lebih mudah di temukan.

    Susu nabati merupakan susu yang di buat dari tanaman, dan susu tersebut merupakan alternatif bagi orang yang tidak bisa meminum susu sapi. Kondisi dimana orang tidak dapat meminum susu sapi biasanya terjadi karena tubuhnya tidak mampu memproses laktosa dari susu dan variasi susu yang ada (susu sapi).

    Akan tetapi bagi kalian yang suka dengan jenis minuman dari susu sapi, apakah susu sapi menjadi pilihan terbaik ataukah susu tersebut dapat di ganti dengan menggunakan susu kambing?
