Shorts - H&M      T-Shirt - Zara      Necklace - Republic

Cobalt blue is fast becoming my favourite colour; just bright enough to catch attention without being too in-your-face neon, and a perfect colour to clash with Essie's Fifth Avenue, a bright orange perfect for the summer months.

Hence I am obsessed with these new shorts from H&M I picked up on a recent shop in the Covent Garden branch, which is a million times more organised and better stocked than my town's shop! I wore this on a night out last week to celebrate the ending of exams - woohooo! - and whipped out my favourite make-up combo to boot. A combination of Ardell Demi Whispies, Laura Mercier Artists Palette in both Cafe Au Lait and Rich Coffee blended across the lid and my old favourite MAC Hue lipstick seems to add just the right amount of smoke to an otherwise quite everyday make-up!

I am currently in pre-prom prep mode, with nothing else to worry about now school's over all I have to do is concoct the perfect dress, hair, shoe, make-up combo... and hopefully get back into regular blogging this summer, as I really am a bit useless!

Last month i had the amazing opportunity to be a makeup model for the exceptional Pixiwoo sisters on DailyMixTV. It sounds really silly but meeting Pixiwoo is seriously one of my 'bucket list' items which has now well and truely been ticked off.

I am so so grateful to all the team at DailyMix and to Sam and Nic for a fantastic afternoon in the studio. If you want to apply to be in a future video, email! I got to meet the Chapman sisters, who were both ridiculously beautiful and insanely lovely, have a sneaky look at their on-set makeup essentials and have my eyes made up for the Ultimate Smokey Eye in the YouTube video above. Seriously, most perfect day ever. 

Nic used MAC Constructivist Paint Pot (which I am seriously considering buying!) as a super simple smokey eye base, paired under a little MAC Mulch in addition to a hell of a lot of MAC Teddy Liner, but the result was lovely, soft and smokey, and something I will definitely be reworking for a night out soon to come!
