Easy/Laid Back Summer FOTD/ OOTD/ NOTD

This is a bit of a mish mash post, as I felt my entire look today represented my entire look for summer, most days anyway. Not too much make up, something cool and comfortable and bright nails....

Avon Solutions Visual Perfection Tinted Moisturiser
Benefit Posie Tint
MAC MSF in Petticoat
ELF Makeup Mist and Set

MAC Paintpot in Vintage Selection
Avon Supershock Mascara
Avon Supershock Eyeliner

Avon Glazewear Shine lipgloss in Pink Watermelon

Wearing lots of heavy make-up feels horrible on my face on a sunny day like today, so I usually opt for a tined moisturiser ahead of my usual foundation. Also the setting mist is a less cakey and more refreshing alternative to setting powder. A cheek tint is more ffective for summer as it stays put longer than a powder blush and gives a more fresh and natural look. I also dont want to bother with lots of blending of eyeshadows when Im sat in the sun all day so I jst sweep on a little of a paintpot and its simple and looks good all day. I love this lipgloss for summer as its so pigmented and gives a bright pop to my face.

My clothes are entirely from the River Island sale, shorts for £10 and vest for £4...BARGAIN. I love little demin shorts for summer paired with any vest top really. This is kind of my go to outfit for sunny days or on holiday. I jsut wore black flip flops from Accessorize and a pair of aviator sunglasses I found in New Look for around £4.

I just put on one coat of Barry M's Pink Flamingo this morning. It applies so well, for some reason even better than most of the nail polish I have from his brand. I put it on my toes too and I just love it for summer. Im more into bright nails rather than pastel nails for summer as I feel they really spice up your look and bring out a tan. This is my very favourite bright pink too.

Hope I didnt bore you with a loooong post! It feels good to be writing again :)
