Last weekend on the May Day Bank Holiday I posted a photo across my Social media channels of my freshly highlighted locks. The sun was shining, my hair and nails were freshly styled and I just felt really inspired. So I figured it was the perfect time to create a Spring inspired Hair and Makeup post.
I’ve had long hair for as long as I can remember and as much as I love long hair, I decided it was time for a change. My hairdresser Deborah is a complete hair guru and I always know I’m in safe hands when I go to see her at her Salon, The Hair and Beauty Box. For the length, I wanted my locks looking as fresh and healthy as possible, so I asked for around 4 to 5 inches cut off (this is a major change for me, I’m normally a ‘let’s go for a trim’ kind of gal). And for the colour, I figured it was the perfect time of year to go a little lighter. So Deborah used 2 different highlight blonde shades to give my dark blonde locks a soft sun kissed shimmer, perfect for Spring / Summer.
For Makeup I opted for a warm peachy-rose coloured soft, smokey eye with a bright pink lip. When it comes to Spring / Summer I think bronzed, glowing skin with hues of coral / pink. I’d had my nails painted earlier in the week and loved the fun, strawberry coloured shade so I decided to match my lips to my nails. For eyes I used a mix of Makeup Geek shadows (these shadows are incredible; super pigmented, lots of shades to choose from and the best thing about them? They’re affordable!) and for lips an Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick. See below for a full product listing..
I hope you like the final look and as always please leave any comments below.
