The weather is certainly having trouble making its mind up lately, am I right?

I have worn everything from Jumpers to bikinis this month and my wardrobe has been slightly confused with what temperature it should be! I have been loving all the spring fashion trends this year already so I thought I would show you some of my favourite outfits and beauty essentials so far.

For those of you who don’t know, I live in Wales and it is notoriously known for wet and windy weather (with last summer being an exception). I have clothes for every single weather event but I have never worn a woolly pullover and a swimsuit in the same week!

When we did have a 24 degree day, It was over Easter weekend and I was going to a family lunch. I wore this beautiful bright yellow tea dress from Primark and paired it with my white sliders.

It is such a stunning colour and was very lightweight and cool for sitting in the garden. I picked this dress up last year for £5 in the sale and I am so glad I did.

Dress: Primark – £5

Sliders: Primark – £6

Hair clips: Asda – £4

Hat: Dorothy Perkins – £16

These pretty hair clips are everywhere at the moment! They remind me of a classic  Chanel look that would look great on long and short hair. I picked mine up from George at Asda for £4 each and they are gorgeous! You can actually find my picture over on the George for Asda instagram page, they liked it that much they wanted to share it themselves!

This hat is from Dorothy Perkins, I bought it years ago and I just love the colour, it goes with everything and makes any outfit look so glamorous.

I have been loving super bright pigmented eye shadows lately. My sister very kindly bought me a few goodies from Colourpop, including this gorgeous super shock shadow. It is so pigmented and a little goes a long long way! It looks phenomenal in the sunlight and I look just like a giant piece of glorious glitter – I love it.

This was a super quick post to show you what I have been loving lately, but keep posted for something very exciting in the next few days from one of my favourite brands – You will love it!

Lazy sunday beauty routine

bblogger, Beauty, beautyandshe, beautyblog, bloglovin, cosmetics, diy, eyes, Fashion, haul, love, Makeup, makeupblog, routine

Well good morning my beauties!

I know its been such a long time since I last did a post…. but I have good reason!

I started my new job as an optical assistant this week and I am absolutely loving it! I haven’t had a lot of time for blogging this week as I really wanted to focus on getting the hang of my new job! And we all know how long blogging takes……

So today on my day off, I wanted to share with you my easy-peasy lazy Sunday beauty routine!

So lets begin!

Regardless of the day, I always start off by moisturising, it leaves my skin hydrated for the rest of the day and is great under foundation. My favourite is the Norwegian formula ‘Deep Moisturiser‘, it smells great and is so hydrating. I got mine from Superdrug for £3.99! Check it out here.

Using a damp Beauty Blender (adding water to the blender helps create a flawless finish when applying the foundation) I apply my favourite BB cream foundation from Makeup Revolution. This brand is probably my favourite this year, they have so many amazing quality products at such great prices. I picked up my foundation in shade 3 from Superdrug for £3! Check it out here.

Using my E.L.F powder and stippling brush, I just apply this over my foundation to really make a fresh and flawless finish. It erases and shine and creates a lovely colour alongside my foundation. I picked this up from E.L.F for £3! (sadly E.L.F is no more) Check out the sales at E.L.F here.

I then go on to apply my Ted Baker blush (which you all know I love) and my MUA bronzer which is also from Superdrug that I got for £2.50. The combination of these two creates such a lovely tone on my skin that define my cheek bones and gives my a lovely rosy pop of colour! Find my MUA bronzer here.

To create a glowy and dew like look to really brighten my Sunday, I applied my powder highlight on my cheekbones, brow bones and nose. Its a gorgeous pearly colour that glistens in the light, really awakening the skin! I picked this up from the I Heart Makeup brand at Superdrug for £4.99. Check it out here.

Of course I would be using my Naked 3 palette by Urban Decay, it has some great natural colours that are perfect for a lazy Sunday relaxed look! I used a gorgeous shimmery colour all over my lid, then applied the shade ‘mugshot’ in my crease, just to add a bit of definition to the eyes. I picked my palette up from here.

Using the Wet n Wild Mega volume mascara that I received in my US beauty swap, I applied this to my top and bottom lashes to create extra volume. I only used one coat of this as I wanted to keep the look fresh and simple.

I am in love with my EOS lip balm that I also recieved, it is super hydrating and smells great! I love the packaging and feel of the balm, and having it in a round container makes the application so much easier!

A little hint/trick that I have learnt… If you are like me, my lips are naturally not very well defined, Using this lip liner from Primark that I picked up for £1, define your cupids bow to add definition and shape. Trust me it looks amazing.
