Bronzed and Beachy: Summer Make-Up Look

I don't know why but whenever the weather is cold and grim ALL I can think about is holidays, tanning and glorious summer sunshine.

As the snow fell heavily in Leeds on Saturday afternoon I found myself day dreaming about white sandy beaches, looking through thousands of old holiday snaps and even applying a cheeky extra layer of fake bake; all completely subconsciously but without an ounce of shame.

To remedy my mood, I decided to create Summer a make-up look on my amazing i-pod app to make me feel a tad more optimistic about the abysmal sight out of my window. Even though my skin is completely untanned right now, sometimes I like to wear warm, golden-toned make-up at least to look a bit healthier and to feel a little bit better about the fact I'm almost as pasty as an albino vampire. I wanted to share the look with any blog readers who may be feeling just as depressed about the cold as I am - it won't be long before we can all have a natural, glowing skin colour again!

Unfortunatley (or not) experimenting has given me a fair few products to add to my ever-growing make-up wishlist....
