Summer 2019 trends | BeautyandShe

Beauty, fashion, haul

well hello

 

Its May! Its basically, nearly, almost, could be SUMMER!

I don’t know about you guys but I have been loving pinterest lately for fashion trends/ideas for the upcoming warmer months so I thought I would share with you some of my favourite trends for 2019.

Grab a cup of tea or your beverage of choice and take a look at my picks for this Summer.

  1. Blazer and Shorts combo

missguided grey and white checked blazer and shorts

Im getting all sorts of 80’s/90’s vibes with this trend and I love it. A classic blazer with tailored shorts and heel will look perfect day or night plus that blazer will keep you warm on a chilly summer evening – Practical. This one is from Missguided, imagine this with a plain white tee, brown sandals and bag – a perfect summer lunch OOTD.

2. Animal Print

Animal print blouse from Next

I don’t think this trend ever went away. I never usually wear animal print but this year I have purchased a few items that look surprisingly good! I do love a printed blouse and this one from Oasis at Next is gorgeous.

3. Shirt Dresses

Blue Denim shirt dress from prettylittlething

Shirt dresses are my number one smart casual attire. You cant go wrong. Maxi or midi length they all look great and are a cooler option for a hot summers day. This denim style one from Prettylittlething is adorable and would look gorgeous paired with some chunky trainers, oversized sunnies and a messy bun.

4. Neon 

Neon yellow bum bag from topshop

Now, I have a love/hate relationship with the neon trend. I LOVE the bright colours but unfortunately I don’t think they look quite right on me! I have tried with a neon pink jumper – that’s how daring I got. I feel like I could get away with wearing this neon bumbag from Topshop though. I just don’t think I would wear it like that…

5. Chunky Trainers

Matalan chunky white trainers

I never thought I would get in to this one – But I have. Chunky trainers are ridiculously comfortable. Some of them are not the nicest looking but I think I have found a pair that beats all. I picked mine up from Matalan and have not looked back since. – Converted.

Well I hope you have enjoyed a snippet of my summer wardrobe so far, I would love to know what you will be wearing this summer too so let me know in the comments. If you head on over to my Instagram you will find my OOTD over there and everything else im loving.

IMG_1053

Good afternoon beauties!

Exciting news! 

I have started a summer series!

At the moment in Wales, the weather is not particularly great so this series is a bit of wishful thinking!

I have to admit, I have done quite a few posts already so get ready with a cup of tea and a biscuit or two for the lovely reads that follow today…

I don’t know about you guys, but secretly I love Camping!

Im not afraid of a bit of mud and some rain, but I have to admit, I like to look good whilst im in my wellies!

So this first edition will feature an easy makeup and OOTD to show you what I will be wearing when I go Camping/ Glamping this summer.

 You dolls ready?…

IMG_2045

So these are all of the products that I used to create this super easy look. 

When I go camping, I like to pack as lightly as possible so these items are perfect!

IMG_2049

To start, I decided to use a bb cream (this one is from Etude House) as it has an SPF and moisturiser all combined.

It creates a flawless and simple base for my skin without leaving me feeling cakey.

IMG_2052

Gold stars for anyone who noticed my dog Honey in the background….

To blend in my foundation, I used my Real Techniques foundation brush, which I unbelievably love.

IMG_2053

To add a lovely rosy and natural glow to my cheeks, I used my fave Ted Baker blush which is so delicate and pretty…

It also comes with a handy little mirror… Win WIn Win.

IMG_2055

Again, I used my Real Techniques fluffy blush brush to apply the colour to my cheeks and cheekbones.

If you havn’t felt how soft this brush is, imagine lovely soft candy floss,

it is perfect….

IMG_2056

This step is optional, but this is generally part of my daily routine anyway.

I’m using my eyebrow pencil that was a £1 from Primark  – Bargain.

IMG_2058

It gives a lovely delicate colour and has a wax end to help keep my brows in place all day long.

And for the price…

I bought 4… oops.

IMG_2060

So im in a tent….

I don’t really want to be messing around with a ton of different tools and products, so the easiest way to add that little bit extra is by using a volumising mascara.

IMG_2061

This mascara by Bourjois is a god send.

It lifts my lashes and makes them look incredible in 2 minutes.

Plus… No flaking!

IMG_2062

Lastly, for a natural shine I decided to add some pretty pink gloss by Benefit to add a hint of colour to my lips.

This small size tube is ideal and fits into my bag or pocket!

Easy for on the go kissable lips.

IMG_2064

As for the outfit, comfort wins for me every time.

I love these high waisted shorts from New Look, so I can hopefully get tanned legs… (I doubt it)

This sailor striped crop top is from Primark and is super comfy and of course you need to have a rucksack to hold that makeup bag etc….

Mine, amazingly, is from Amazon with a striped and lace look.

IMG_2071

Rapunzel let down your hair!

Unfortunately my plait is not that long….

But I love a simple hairstyle that looks pretty and that I can keep off my face.

IMG_2072

And that my friends, is the finished look.

Simple, easy and perfect for those summer days camping with your friends.

Let me know what you beauts think in the comments below,

I would love to know what your Camping essentials are!

Dont forget you can keep up to date with me on my social media and Bloglovin!

Speak to you all later this afternoon for the next edition in my summer series.

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!

IMG_1664

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.

IMG_1667

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.

IMG_1669

IMG_1668

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.

IMG_1670

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.

IMG_1671

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.

IMG_1673

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.

IMG_1675

IMG_1674

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.
