Outfit of the Week: Lunch Date

Yesterday the weather was fairly reasonable in my little part of the UK and so my boyfriend and I decided to make the most of the unusual sunshine and go for a casual lunch date in the town centre. Since getting my puppy (see him here), I've felt as if I've just been living in leggings and trousers as they are easier to wear when taking him for walks, but as my mum kindly took him off my hands for an hour or two I seized the opportunity to squeeze myself back into a dress! 


river island, floral dress, river island dress, waist belt, tan waist belt, leather belt, ebay, topshop, gladiator sandals, topshop sandals, curly hair
★ Dress: River Island ★ Waist belt: Ebay ★ Gladiator sandals: Topshop 

It has also been rare for me to get the chance to wear make up lately as I've been getting up at what seems like the crack of dawn to take Jasper for his morning walk. As soon as I was home alone I reached straight for my make up bag and hair products!


garnier bb cream, bb cream, revlon blush, revlon, E.L.F., eyes lips face, eyes lips face eybrow kit, E.L.F. eyebrow kit, nars brush 5, nars badger brush, l'oreal, l'oreal gel liner, l'oreal volume million lashes, l'oreal mascara, benefit mascara, benefit, benefit bad gal lash, vaseline, curly hair, ghd's, ghd, good hair day
   
Make up products used: 

Face:
Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream in shade 'light' (get one shade lighter than you normally would to make it match your skin tone - I would normally purchase 'medium'!).
Blush: Revlon Matte Powder Blush in shade '002: Blushing Berry'.
Eyebrows: E.L.F. eyebrow lifter and filler in shade 'Ivory/Dark', E.L.F. eyebrow kit (brow gel and powder) in shade 'Dark' - applied with Nars eyebrow brush No. 5.
Eyeshadow: Maybelline 24 Hour Colour Tattoo in shade '35: On and On Bronze'.
Eyeliner: L'Oreal Gel Intenza Eyeliner in shade '02: Golden Black'.
Mascara: one coat of Benefit Bad Gal Lash, one coat of L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes in shade 'Extra-Black'.




What are you wearing now the weather is heating up? Let me know!

  2. you look gorgeous! totally agree with you about the 'one shade lighter' thing with the bb cream, "light" is slightly too dark for me! your dress is gorgeous, and your hair and makeup look flawless :) xxx

    1. Thanks! I've seen so many bad reviews on the Garnier BB cream, and I actually got mine from a friend who normally buys 'ivory/light' products and said that this made her look orange, but its a perfect colour match for me!

  17. What do you think of the Garnier BB cream? I've been really wanting to try one to see how it works for me and I saw this one in Asda during the week and I can't decide whether to buy it or not!
