FESTIVAL MAKEUP

Untitled-1

Once again the time has come for us ladies to pile on the bright coral lipsticks and bring out the light crochets and flower crowns that are perfect for this season!* It’s summertime; and while the season does come with its downsides (namely, actually having to shave my legs regularly), it is also the time for us to get excited about the large number of music festivals that are popping up everywhere.

TUTORIAL: QUICK & EASY SUMMER GLAM LOOK

Yeah, yeah summer’s almost over and we’ll soon be parting from all the corals and bright pinks we’ve all grown to love, but bear with me ladies, cause this time around I’m going to be showing you what I like to wear on a summer night out when I want to look and feel amazing once I walk out the door without making much of an effort.
