Summer everyday makeup

So apparently its summer here in the northern hemisphere however I don't think anyone bothered to tell the weather this. But life goes on in sunshine or in rain so I thought I would show you my go to summer makeup. This year I haven't been very creative with my summer makeup since I've had limited time and I couldn't be arsed to be honest to play around with different looks so I've just gone for the bronzed look.

Please don't think orange though, I like to have some colour just to warm up my complexion since when I'm pale in the winter I get lovely comments about how I look ill and tired. I have great friends.... 

This look is pretty standard with a bit of eyeliner and mascara and I tend to also put a bit of eye shadow from he Maybelline Blushed Nudes palette which I will be reviewing quite soon. The foundation Im wearing at the moment is the Rimmel Wake me Up foundation in a slightly darker shade for my summer skin. I have only recently made the change from my Rimmel Perfect Match foundation as I've only just caught the sun from going on a couple of walking weekends.

The thing I would recommend out of everything is probably the Bourjois bronzer because it's so beautifully subtle that you can completely avoid the fake orange look. But I still love the Benefit They're Real mascara and push-up liner.

Who needs to do exercise to get trainers?

My name is Brigid and I am a shoeaholic. But I think that I actually needed these. I needed practical shoes that were also pretty. This is exactly what these Joules trainers are and they were half price in their current fantastic sale! And a little note; I do do exercise but not in these because they're far two pretty to get filthy.

I've worn them for a couple of days now and don't want to sound cliche but it does feel like I'm walking on clouds however I'm slightly nervous of getting them dirty which defeats the point of wearing shoes, but I want to keep them nice for as long as possible.

They also do these in grey if blue doesn't float your boat however blue defiantly floats my boat so they go with nearly everything I wear on a casual day. 

To finish this post of I would like to apologise for not blogging for a month. It didn't mean to be a month but life happened and I may explain it in the future but for now I'll just say i haven't  been in the mood for blogging. Sorry.
