WEARING RIGHT NOW




A beauty post seemed long overdue, so I thought I'd share with you guys a couple of new products I'm loving at the moment. First up is the Dr Haushka Summer Powder, it's a two-tone 'Summer Powder', I would call it a light bronzer but it's designed to give vitality to cooler complextions. I was given this at a recent Harvey Nichols event- I wouldn't ususally spend £33.50 on a powder but I have to say it's one of if not the best bronzer powders I've ever used. I use the flat brush in the compact to apply it, the lighter shade along my cheekbone and the darker just underneath, subtly contouring my face. It glides on so smoothly and is super easy to blend and work with, if I'm feeling a bit paler then I tend to add a little to my temples also but didn't in the pictures above as I've still got a bit of colour from that gorgeous bank holiday weekend. I'm not one for bold cheekbones and harsh blushers hence why I wear only a little, but it can be built up for a heavier shade. What's also great about it is that it smells absolutely amazing- something you don't always look for in a powder but it makes putting it on that extra bit special. It's something I'd definitely recommend for girls looking for a light bronzing powder for the summer season.

On my last trip to London I couldn't leave before visiting the new & Other Stories store on Regent Street. There's been some mixed reviews about it but as soon as I set foot instore I loved it. Something about the white decor and originally displayed stock made it my kind of retail-paradise. After picking up the lovliest litlle black lace bra I headed over to the beauty section, the cute white packaging made it all look so pretty so I thought about what I needed and picked up the Chalon Red lip pencil. It's so highly pigmented I've actually been using it for all over colour, the velvety finish is just gorgeous and it lasts a lot longer than some of my other red lipsticks. It's creamy to put on but sets nicely with a subltle gleam that catches the light. I'm so happy with this purchase as it was a really reasonable £6 and I can't wait to get my hands on some more & Other Stories gear.
