Summer Nights Look

Hi everyone ... long time no see (or read!) I've seriously been lacking in posts recently, mainly due to blogger's block and enjoying the rare sunny weather that we don't normally get in the UK. But I thought I'd come back with a makeup look. My photos aren't that great but you get the jist of what the makeup look is all about - bronzed colours, resembling a beautiful summer night's sunset.

For this look, I used mainly ELF products including this gorgeous Baked Eyeshadow Palette in California. It's filled with warm, toasty colours perfect for achieving that night time sunset look. I applied the top middle colour as a base, using it all over my lid up to my brow bone. I then applied the top second colour on my lid up to my crease, followed by the bottom middle colour in the outer corner of my lid and blended. I tried to keep the look subtle, so I didn't apply the colours heavily - this palette is perfect for this as the shadows aren't extremely pigmented. I then applied the top middle colour that I used as a base in the corners of my eye and slightly under my waterline and the top second colour again under my eye. I then went ahead and applied black eyeliner along my waterline to define my eyes, followed by mascara (after curling my lashes!)

I then applied my lip stain in the shade 'Heartbreaker' which is a coral colour. I like the way it looks in combination with the eyeshadow - very summery!

Hope you enjoyed this post - I want to start doing more makeup looks (I'll just need to improve my photos hehe!)
