Hello everyone, and happy April! In London we are getting some glimpses of sun between the showers and it’s starting to feel like Spring. This is one of my favourite seasons; I love the smell of wet asphalt being dried by the sun, the look of people wearing sandals and shorts getting caught in the rain, the dandelions pushing their way through the cement and last but not least; knowing that summer is just around the corner. So I feel it is quite fitting to do a little April cravings post with three looks I wish I could wear right now. How AMAZING is the long bomber jacket from Weekday?! I wish they had a store in London.

I love these little marble earrings that I picked up the other day at Topshop. When I wear them I get ‘Sussudio’ playing in my head, especially if I do a natural makeup look with matte lipliner and strong brows + sleek ponytail. Get them here (affiliate link <3).
Today I thought I’d show you a superduper simple beauty look I do from time to time that I feel works well for both day time and evening. This look is made with just a few products and takes virtually no time at all! I’m a big fan of using products in unconventional ways. It clears up space in your beauty bag and allows people on a budget to invest in just a few, good quality products.
I often use either a pink or a peachy blush on my eyes. Blushes are rarely super pigmented, so they are easy to blend and work with for us regular folks. I love using this pink from MAC, it is a bright pink so you can really build the product to make it POP, or tone it down a bit like I’ve done in these photos. Wear it with some dark nails and a bit of lip colour to make it more “fall-friendly”, or do a natural look that works all year.
Central Products used: MAC Sheertone Blush in Pink Swoon (similar here), Dior Rouge Nude Lipstick in Esquisse (here).
For the daytime look I used a bit of concealer where it was needed, a tiny bit of bronzer on my cheeks and the blusher on my eyes.
For the more “evening” look, I used a bit more bronzer, used some of the blush on my cheeks and a couple of layers with the Dior lipstick.
