face of the day: summer colour


Oh deary me, did you ever imagine a 'face of the day' where I'd be wearing colour on my eyes? I certainly didn't! Don't get too excited though as this is still pretty plain but for me, this is as colourful as it will get in terms of eye make up. I'm just too attached to my neutral eyeshadows.

The past few days this has been my go-to make up look. It's just so summery and fresh looking. I never thought I'd say this but I actually really like the little pop of the light bluey aqua liner on my eyes. The pencil I used was the Jack Wills Tyrell Eye Liner in Aqua. It's such a soft and creamy pencil and a bit of a bargain I think for £6. It's such a unique colour.


I then decided to choose another bright and slightly clashing colour for my lips and went for a bright pinky coral colour which was the 17 Mirror Shine Lipstick in Peace. Although this is a bright colour, as the finish of these lipsticks is so sheer and shiny and almost like a gloss, I don't think the colour looks too much and still allows the eye liner to remain the main focus. The only thing is about these lipsticks is that as they're so creamy they melt very easily so not the best to carry around in your bag for touch-ups when it's this hot...


Do you like to wear colour in the summer? I still don't think I'll be wearing bright eyeshadows any time soon but I might play around some more with coloured eye liners!

  1. Your eyes are so beautiful!

    I like wearing eyeliners in summer, they always stay on all day and don't smudge in the heat.

    1. Me too usually but I think eyeliner is a subtle way of adding a little colour without wearing a crazy eyeshadow! x

  10. This colour looks so pretty on your eye's, there is a huge neon eyeline trend for this summer and
    I think you may have started something with the pastel eyeline :) I hope you will follow my blog :)
