Summer Fashion And Beauty Wishlist...

The sun was out today, and whilst having late breakfast with my mum and flicking through a copy of BAZAAR magazine; I got thinking about making a list of fashion and beauty products I'd like to get this summer.
So here goes..

↠ ColourPop makeup products - I have already ordered some from America as it is an American brand.
Revlon Photo-ready foundation.
Mac refill eyeshadow - to start my custom pro palette.The Balm Cindy Lou-manizer highlight - http://The-Balm-Cindy-Lou-Manizer-Highlighter
↠ Mac matte lipstick in Saint Germain or Peach Blossom (mac website)
↠ Smash-box eyebrow define (re-purchase).
↠ Eyeliner - not sure which brand yet?
↠  Crease and eye blender brushes - either Zoeva or Real Techniques.
↠ Bare minerals pressed powder.↠ New summer skincare products - possibly the Vitamin E range from the body shop.
↠ Master Conceal by Maybeline.
More Bleach London hair colours - lilac, pink, blue etc.
↠ New straighteners - after many years, mine have finally given up on me :(

I have practically come to the end of all my makeup products at the moment, and although it's a little annoying; I'm looking forward to trying new (possibly higher end) products and makeup looks - and sharing my opinions. It will also be fun to 're-stock' my makeup bag.
My Wardrobe has also be cleared lately, as it was spilling with thing's I just don't feel comfortable wearing anymore, and so over the summer I'm going to build up my wardrobe again with items that I love; on a budget of course.
↠ Doc Martens - Probably the originals in black! 
↠ New Creepers - mine have broken after two years.
↠ High waisted black jeans from Sheinside.
↠ Boyfriend Jeans from Asos.
↠ Black leather bag for college.
↠ Casual weekend backpack or shoulder bag from House Of Fraser.
↠ New casual jacket - possibly bomber jacket.
↠ Underwear from Gilly Hicks.
↠ Accesories; sunglasses, ring's and necklaces from Urban Outfitters, Topshop and my travels this summer.
↠ Casual dresses or rompers/playsuits for the holidays.
I'm sure there will be thing's I wont be able to buy this summer, and there will also be some additional things I pick up that I have forgotten to put down.

Hair dye and concert makeup...

Because I have bleached hair, I have been experimenting with as many colours as I can lately. This Bleach London colour - washed up mermaid - I'm absolutely in love with! I would definitely recommend this dye, (as well as the Bleach London silver shampoo and conditioner for platinum blonde hair) as i personally have found it to be much better than crazy colour; it lasts longer , and is not too expensive at all.

Loving the poster in the background :')

I'm off to see a band called Nothing But Thieves this evening (very excited) and as I don't want my makeup to smudge, I have used a little more than i would usually. Most of the product's I have used are completely affordable drugstore products.
The previously reviewed L'oreal Infallible primer and foundation, with a small amount of Rimmel London Lasting finish foundation in the colour light porcelain.
The Rimmel London Wake Me Up concealer correcteur.
No7 Perfectly Bronzed dual bronzer - i used the lighter shade all over, and the darker shade to contour my cheek's and slightly down the sides of my nose.
The Smashbox eyebrow define stick.
Teal and dark brown eyeshadow from the 32 shade Bejewelled eye palette by Accesorize.
Benefit's High Beam highlighter - tops of cheeks and eye corners.
Doll'd Up mascara in black by Seventeen - highly recommend!
Lastly, Rimmel London's moisture renew lipstick in Vintage Pink (An old fave).

Elegant Touch Totally Bare
Stiletto Nail's...

I'm not one to usually buy fake nails, however i had cut all mine off and was really intrigued by the 'stiletto' shape, and figured it would be difficult to grow my nails into that shape. So, i bought these Elegant Touch nails - which are a 'blank canvas to create your own look'.
I personally don't like my nails too long, and although these were in the shortest size, i gave them a trim (which i haven't been able to do on any fake nails before) and painted in dark blue (from Rimmel London).

Unlike most nails i have tried , these ones practically felt like my own nail's, and i was able to go about my day without worrying too much about them falling off. Saying that, i did have to re-stick a couple of the nail's after a few day's but that was what i expected , and the glue was pretty strong too. Definitely recommend these to people on a budget as well, because they are only £4.65 from boots - and have been spotted at London Fashion Week!

L'oreal Infallible.

L'oreal Infallible Mattifying Primer and Foundation...

I have been a fan of L'Oreal products for a while now, however i have never bought a foundation or primer from them until now. The only other primer I have tried out was the Porefessional by Benefit, which did minimize the appearance of my pores slightly, however its quite pricey and I thought I would look at other brands of Primers to compare. Both the Porefessional and Infallible contain Silicone which in terms of skincare covers the skin to protect and keep the moisture in. It also fills in uneven skin texture, meaning the primer gives a better 'illusion' of flawless skin.
Anyway, i would definitely recommend the Infallible Primer to someone with fine lines or small pores , because it's lightweight and doesn't feel heavy on the skin; but it may not be heavy enough to fill in larger pores, deep wrinkles, or large amounts of acne scarring.
I bought the foundation in the shade Vanilla, which thanks to my very pale skin was a little too dark. As it say's on the back, it serves it's purpose by giving a matte finish and also reduces shine. I personally feel like my skin is slightly too dry for this foundation, however i would recommend to someone with an oilier skin.On the backs of both products , it has a 'Pro-Tip' , and also tells you what to expect in terms of Texture, Action, and Coverage. I haven't seen this before , but I think it's very useful and a nice added touch.
Hope this can help in some way!

Lace and Ice cream.

 OOTD// 5.07.2015...

Burgundy Boots - Boohoo.com - Still in stock.
Black jeans - H&M - the hole in the knee was not originally there. However similar style
can be bought from ASOS.com.
It's the ice cream vans time of year!
Hanging out by the shed :/
Lace top - TK MAXX - from a brand called JAPNA.
Similar lacey style tops can be found on Missguided.com

Had these simple black jeans for years now, they pretty much go with anything so I would definitely say black jeans are a wardrobe essential.
The white lace top is lightweight material which is good for warm summer days, and has quite a bohemian feel to it.
I have been loving these burgundy biker boots as they are my cheaper substitute for Doc Marten's, (which are on my shopping wishlist!)and can be paired with so much to give it a slightly edgy look.
