My Perfect Summertime Look!

This is a lovely, natural look for late summer. Let’s not get bogged down with the heavy, russety autumnal colours just yet, eh? I’ll leave off for at least another week, so long as you don’t mind me being “behind the times”. Let’s say that I’m just being “fashionably late” instead. There’s still some summer left in the old girl yet, surely? The sun has been roaring away these last few days! (I bet it will start raining just as this publishes.)

Whilst we’re having a chit-chat, let me draw your attention to the picture below; the one in which my hair makes me look like Lemony Snicket.

That’s a still from the video below – but look how crispy clear it is! I filmed, for the first time, on my new Canon 650D. I haven’t yet bored you all to death with my camera saga, but I’ll do that in a separate post so that you can choose whether or not to read it! I’m still getting used to my new camera, so there might be a few blips in the video if you look very closely, but I can’t wait to really get my teeth into it! I’ve taken some brilliant video of the cat…

OK. Makeup. This video stars the Perfect Skin that everyone raves about – I do love it, but it IS only just a little bit more than a very good moisturiser. I’d use it for the moisturising part alone, it’s lovely, but it has an extra bonus surprise in that it gives a bit of sheeny bronze glow. A bit. You’ll see me apply it in the video – there’s no coverage, so it relies on skin being good to start with. It’s what I would call a “complexion enhancer”, but it’s not anywhere near to the coverage or colour given by something like the Omorovicza version.

Bronzer is the Clarins Duo – gorgeous. I use shade 3, but if you’re fair, shade 1 is a Godsend! You’ll see Dior’s “Wild” lip colour going on and also a little smokiness of the eye with 17’s Trio in “Enraged”. All of the links are below the video pane, if you want to take a closer look at the product info or find a worldwide stockist. Enjoy, have a cuppa, take a few minutes out:
