Pop of Colour..

Hey guys! In the UK right now it's what you'd call summer, although the lack of sun may confuse you, but this does mean when it is warm you end up looking like a melting wax work as your makeup drips down your face. However, if your anything like me then the thought of wearing no makeup at all is a little daunting so I thought I'd show you a look I've been wearing which is long lasting and also has a pop of colour for the summer months!  
This look is inspired by Demi Lovato when she was a judge on X Factor. I know it's quite an old image but when I found it I just loved it and really wanted to try it myself and since then I've fell in love.

For the look, as it's summer, you want to use a primer so your foundation won't budge however you don't want to look too matte so this loreal one is great as it has illumining particles in it. Then pick a foundation that has a good spf and one you can trust, sometimes you do have to pay a little more for a good foundation but it's worth it. For eyes, cream product are amazing as they stay on without creasing so I used this 17 metallic eyes one in wild bronze and applied it all over the eye before lining them with topshop liquid liner and adding a flick. For the waterline, this is where the colour comes into it, I used a blue metallic one from beautique in the first half and then barry m super soft crayon in 7. To finish the eyes I layered two mascaras to give volume and thickness as wearing false eyelashes in summer can be annoying and too much hassle. For eyebrows I used the HD brow kit in vamp and used the darker shades to fill in my brows and make them dark and thick like Demi's. Finally, I finished the faces using Sleeks face form kit to contour, highlight and apply blush as they're such gorgeous shades and perfect for summer before finally applying a coat of chanel lip gloss in 73 for a nude shimmer!

And this is the finished look. This look would work on any coloured eyes, I have blue and it still works well as it enhances the blue in your eyes but if you have green it also pulls out the blue tones and with brown it makes them look brighter so it's a look anyone could pull off. It would work for any skin tone also as it's not too much colour or you could even swap the blue for a different colour or miss it out all together for a really simple makeup look!

I hope you have enjoyed this summer look, if you recreate it then tweet me a picture or tag me in one on instagram!
