KIT COSMETICS LIPSTICK IN FREEDOM FIGHTER

Everyone looks good in a soft peach lip, no matter your skin colour or how big or small your lips are. A peach colour on the lips instantly brightens dull skin tones, enhances our Summer glow, and goes back with any sort of eye – nude or smokey. Layer it up for a statement lip, or dab it on for more a stain finish. Either way, Freedom Fighter Lipstick from Kit Cosmetics could brighten up your day and make a world of a difference when you really need it!

ELLIS FAAS MASCARA IN MILK CHOCOLATE

As far as I’m concerned, the brown mascara is one of those products that doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. Up until now it has been one of those secrets I have rarely spoke about. But truth be told, I use it more often than not – particularly when creating a beachy-bronzed look. When you use a chocolatie-brown mascara like this Ellis Faas Milk Chocolate Mascara (my personal favourite brown), it brings the focus back to the eyes themselves by making everything look caramel-y and tonal. Whether your eyes are blue, green or brown – using a brown mascara will brighten and suddenly enlarge your eyes, whilst making them the focus. Tip; Use the Cherrywood shadow from the Laura Mercier Palette around your eyes for a true sample of just how magical brown can really be!

Bobbi Brown Nectar & Nude Eye Palette

Nude or bronze, smokey or not – this palette has got every Summer & classic trend covered for the Season ahead. Shade your eyes with shades of luminous and matt nudes for the perfect contoured look, or blend up a smoke-storm with the chocolate browns and bronzers for when your feeling in the mood. Whatever way you look at this neat, action-packed, hand-bag-sized palette… there is something looking back at you!

    Max I just wanted to say a huge thank you I always find your blogs and beauty advice so helpful. I stumbled across your website on the Sweaty Betty PR instagram account and haven’t looked back since.

    I’m a flight attendant and because I need to wear make up every day for work I’m always looking for new tips and tricks. Thank you so much and keep up the hard work!
