10 Spring & Summer 'Must Haves' | Life

Hello Lovelies,

 Finally the weather's been brightening up in England, and i took this as the perfect opportunity to snap a few shots in the garden, and share with you all my spring/summer must have items! Also with the biggest festival 'coachella' going on at the moment, i am feeling super duper summery. I have managed to collect together just ten items to share with you all.

4. Assorted Rings - Accessorize

5. Crop Top - Topshop (around £12.00 i think)

'peaches and cream' 'penguin chic' 'little duck'

'rose gold'

10. Shimmery Eye Shadow's - Drugstore £4.00

'heaven and earth' palette

 I have tried to make sure nothing is to pricey, so it is affordable for all! I will definitely be using all of these items to death this summer, and i am loving the patterns and colours in trend at the moment. I hope this has inspired you to go out and buy some bits, or helped you out when packing for a holiday/festival or just creating that summer look!

Thank you for reading, hope you enjoyed the summery photography - Speak Soon!

Mauricia xoxo

Quick & Easy MUOTD | Beauty

Hello Lovelies,

 Today i thought i would share with you one of my favourite, most effective make up looks, which is SO quick and simple to achieve. I often tend to do this look if i'm late out of bed, and just want to put some pretty eye shadow on without really thinking about it. I just wore this yesterday to work, and thought i'd snap some photo's. Also, i thought i'd add, all of the pictures were taken after wearing this for about 9 hours, with the only touch ups being some powder. I am very impressed with how my eyes stayed, my face is slightly shoddy, but not anything too bad.

-Maybelline Baby Skin 'Instant Pore Eraser'
-Maybelline 'Dream Pure' BB Cream (Medium)
-Collection 'Lasting Perfection' Concealer (Medium)
-Rimmel 'Stay Matte' Powder (Warm Beige)
-Sleek Powder Blush (Rose Gold)

-Rimmel 'Professional Eyebrow Pencil' (004 Black/Brown)
-MAC Eyeshadow ('Brown Down' and 'Malt')
-Sleek Eyeshadow ('Taupe' and 'Nougat')
-Lancome Paris 'Traceur-Matic' Eyeliner (Brown)
-Maybelline 'The Falsies' Mascara (Black, Waterproof)

('Malt' across the lid, with 'Taupe' over the top, applied with an Urban Decay flat brush, blended with a large fluffy brush; 'Brown Down' through the crease, blended with a MAC 217 brush; Eyeliner along the upper lash line, with a slight cat eye flick; 'Nougat' on the inner corner, applied with a small brush)

Hope this inspired you to recreate this look, or experiment with your own shadows. If you don't have any of the shades i used, all you need is: a light colour, a shimmer colour and a matte brown... then your good to go!

Thanks for reading!

Mauricia xoxo
