Happy (look) Good Friday!

 

friday

No work on any Friday, let alone Good Friday, could only mean one thing for me this morning… grooming!

I’ve gone for teal and gold look for an early dinner with the boyf…

Nails

I actually get excited when I realise I’ve got a nail polish stashed away that perfectly matches an outfit. It’s the first time I’ve worn this marina hued teal polish from a M&S set (they do some really cute sets all year round). I slicked a coat of Rimmel clear top and base coat polish to for shine.

Hair

This was surprisingly quick and easy! I blow dried it (after using my go to styling products) then used my Andrew Barton I Love Curls curling iron to roll it up and loosely pin with bobby pins. I gave it a light spritz with Superdrug‘s own hairspray and allowed to cool (about 15mins). Then released and ran my fingers, not through it, but over it, then spritzed again with hairspray. Voila!

Makeup

I mixed Estee Lauder Double Wear in Ivory with Rimmel Lating Finish 25 hour foundation in beige to get the right colour match and coverage (this stuff’s gotta last today!). My favourite concealer when I’m feeling a bit puffy eyes is always Garnier Tinted Eye Roll On. For a rosy cheek I applied Rimmel Stay Blushed in Sunkissed Cherry to the fleshy part of the cheeks. It gives a nice dewy finish that that most powder blushes don’t. I based my lips with a really tiny blob of concealer then used Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Caramel Daisey.

Outfit

This is my bargain buy dress from MissGuided Sweat Deal section. They have some fantastic discounts on allover Easter weekend by the way girls! I love the deep teal colour and comfy yet clingy fabric. I paired it with an asymmetric gold ring and necklace from good old Primani – gotta high five Primark for costume jewellery. With the sun shining I can finally welcome my New Look wedges back into my life (I picked them up last summer but think they’re pretty timeless as far as wedges go).

Perfume

With such a low cost look it’s nice to linger in the sophisticated scent of Jimmy Choo! This stuff smells like class and going the extra mile when used with the Jimmy Choo body lotion. A christmas gift from my lovely fella : )

  1. Lovely post! I absolutely love teal, it’s such a beautiful and grown up color.

    I mix foundations a lot too! I’ll mix practically anything with my Revlon Colorstay in Ivory as it is high coverage, long wearing and a truly pale shade that can help a lot of other foundations perform better. xx
