Blues mixed with neutrals

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. Another blue themed eyeshadow palette that I love is the BH Cosmetics Blueberry Muffin palette, and I love that it has blues mixed with neutrals.

Other blues

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I’d primarily been using my By BEAUTY BAY Midnight 42 Colour Palette to do blue looks for a while, so I thought I would give some love to a couple of other blue palettes when I did this look. No matter which blue shadows I use, I just love a blue eye look.

They’re back

Here’s what I wore Monday June 20. The blue floral trousers are back, this time worn without the matching shirt, because it was a little to warm for that. I think this might have been the last time I wore them; I believe my belly is too big for them now.

Collective haul (April)

It’s finally time for my collective haul from April. This haul consists of one clothing item and then the rest is accessories and make-up.

The one clothing item in this haul is this cute floral dress from H&M. I loved these kinds of smock dresses when I was younger, so I got a bit nostalgic when I saw this one and decided to pick it up.

Then I purchased some things from Asos. The two headbands are both by Asos Design, and the earrings are from Madein.

The two most exciting things I purchased from Asos though are the e.l.f. Cosmetics Halo Glow setting powder and the e.l.f Cosmetics Blemish Fighting Putty primer. I’d been wanting to try both of these products for a while, and as it turns out, I love both products.

The last products in this haul are all purchased from Beauty Bay. I was really intrigued by the Midnight and the Earthy palettes when they launched, so in April I purchased both 42 colour palettes as a set/duo at a really good price. I’m especially fond of the Midnight palette, as you might have noticed from recent make-up looks.

I also purchased the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Beauty Killer 2 palette on sale. I actually like this colour story more than I thought I would.

I also purchased another Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Liner. This one is in the shade Warm Taupe, and it’s such a great shade.

Versatile summer dress

Here’s what I wore Tuesday June 14. I’ve had this pink dress for a couple of years, and it’s one of my favourite summer dresses. It has also turned out to be a great maternity dress.
