Springsheen for Summer …..

Hello girls,

I  have planned my summer holidays to the beautiful Balearic Island of Ibiza.  Here are few things I bought recently for my trip. I put an out- fit idea, which I’ll be wearing to hang out at my favourite place, Blue Marlin, Ibiza with my hubby.

DSC04248I’ll be dressing up this beautiful  (1)  kimono style top from Miss Selfridges over my bikini with these stunning (2) statement necklace I bought from Stradivarius. And pair it up with these (3) snakeskin wedges from New look. As for makeup it’ll be a bit of (4) Maybelline BB cream in Universal glow over (5) Mac Prep + Prime SPF 50 (6) MAC Spring Sheen Blush and (7) Bobbi Brown Nectar Brightening Lip gloss.

Mac Springsheen Blush –  It’s got the most gorgeous Peachy colour. It’s a sheertone shimmer blush, which is perfect for day time.  As it’s  got a gold (with a hint of pearl) finish to it, it works as a highlighter as well. A very subtle summary colour and one of those blushes that gives you a fresh look. If I use it for a night out I would combine it with another blush just to make the colour pop.

Statement Necklace – Look at this beautiful, beautiful statement necklace (was on for a bargain @ sale). I love the colour turquoise, as it goes with most of my clothes in the wardrobe and can be worn  in so many different ways, ie; with my LBD,  jeans with a simple t-shirt etc etc.

Blue Marlin, Ibiza – It may not be the place for everyone, but I absolutely love everything about this place. The music, the people, food, the beach etc etc. It’s such an amazing place that instantly makes me happy.  I will be posting some photos for you when I am there.  http://www.bluemarlinibiza.com

Shimmer Brick

To get that youthful, dewy complexion, you need a great highlighter that fit your skin. Here is my favourite girls;

Bobbi Brown Bronze shimmer Brick

I am a big fan of Bobbi’s make up line. Though her makeup line is a bit more expensive than some other brands, she offers a fantastic range with lot of natural colours like browns, golds and nudes, which suits most skin tones.

My favourite of the Bobbi Brown range is Bronze Shimmer Brick Compact. Added bonus of this product is instead of just being one colour, it features five different colours in a slightly different shade to each other, so when you apply it to your skin, it gives you the most amazing glow with a hint of sparkle. I use this as an Eye Shadow Palette as well as a Bronzer.  Gives you a deep, bronzy glow, and neutral and deep blush shades works well with Bronze Shimmer Brick.

 It also comes in different shades; Pink Quartz, Nectar, Rose, Beige and 24-Karat.

If you are looking for a cheaper alternative; Body Shop’s Shimmer Waves (comes in 2 different shades) is equally good.

 Nothing lights up your face like shimmer.
