** Warning – Lots of posing photos and slightly creepy up-close eye shots ahead!**
I decided to base the look around festivals as bright colour seems to be the key. Anything goes as long as it’s bright! I chose to combine the blue Rimmel eyeshadow in 500 – Posh Peacock and the brown – 200 Spicy Bronze, with some other eyeshadow colours I already had.
I actually got the inspiration from ice cream! The brown Rimmel shadow symbolised chocolate, and then I used a creamy colour (Vanilla) and a baby pink (Strawberry) under my eyebrow arch, and then the Rimmel blue on the lid. This look isn’t really one I would wear often but I liked how the colours used together made them all stand out. The blue colour wasn’t one I would personally use often, but I really liked the bronze.
I felt the 1,2,3 Looks Adjustable Volume Mascara I used really made my eyelashes longer, although I didn’t quite understand the concept of the packaging but I’d definitely use it again anyway! To finish my eyes I used the Waterproof Eye Definer in 240 – Aqua Sparkle underneath to make them stand out more. I have a pencil eyeliner in this exact colour, and I find it really brings out your eye colour especially if you have blue eyes like me. This eyeliner was more of a creamy consistency which made it nicer to put on than the eye pencil I have.
To complete the day look I applied the Natural Bronzer in 022- Sun Bronze on my face, arms and chest to add some extra sparkle. I liked this, although it isn’t the best bronzer I’ve tried.
Lastly I added the Stay Glossy Lip Gloss in 040- Endless Summer to my lips. It was really soft to apply and smelled lovely even though I don’t usually use gloss!
On my nails I used the Rimmel nail varnish in 409- Coral Crush. I loved this colour as it was really summery and I was actually thinking of buying one in this sort of colour before this arrived so I was a happy bunny!
For a night time look I used the Bourjois goodies. I love experimenting with eyeshadow colours and inspiration, so with this one I decided to take the idea of a sunset. I used a yellow eyeshadow I already had under my brow, and a red eyeshadow on my eyelid. I then used the Bourjois 01- Intense Black eyeshadow in the contours to symbolise the night sky (cheesy haha).
To finish off the eyes I used Bourjois’ Mascara Elastic, which had an interesting looking applier! I liked this mascara but I think I prefer the Rimmel one just slightly, although I might change my mind! I’m rubbish with eyeliner so I attempted to use the Bourjois Felt Tip Eyeliner in 11- Noir and felt it didn’t look too bad considering! For those who use eyeliner a lot to do flicks and stuff and are much more talented than me, I reckon this would be ideal and easy to use.
On my face I used the Healthy Mix Foundation in 53- Light Beige. The first thing I noticed was the yummy smell as it has fruit extracts in! The pump made it easy to apply and I liked the coverage although I think the colour might be a little too dark for me in winter, I have a bit of a tan at the moment (only a bit though!) which meant it blended in slightly better.
The bronzer I used was Bourjois’ Bronzing Powder and I adored the packaging plus the bronzer looks like chocolate – yummy! I really liked the smell of this and preferred it to the Rimmel one. The blusher in 16 – Rose Coup De Foudre was in the cutest peach pot with flower decoration – I’m a sucker for nice packaging! The blush looked really cute on and smelt really strongly of perfume!
On my lips I used the Effect 3D Lip Gloss in 49 – Brun Rose Authentic. It made my lips look really shiny and smelt devine! I look forward to using the pink colour I got too (46 – Rose Lyric).
To finish the look I painted my nails using the 1 Seconde Varnish in No.13. I loved the colour of this and the added sparkle. The fan effect brush meant you could paint one nail in one stroke! It was so easy and the colour lasted for days without chipping, would definitely recommend this varnish!
I didn’t dislike any of the products, but the quirkness of the Bourjois packaging and the lovely fragrances has definitely made me a new fan!
