Make up by Christian Dior

This glamorous make up look was designed creatively and imaginatively by Christian Dior. Subtle lilac eyeshadow was swept over the lids, with a dab of white, for a reflective effect. Reflective looks were also created at Christian Dior using shimmering discs, of various sizes, applied to the eyelids, brows and forehead. This dazzling eye make up contrasted well against the rich red lipstick - carefully applied by a lip brush. A pale pink concealer was then used to cover up dark circles and lighten the face which made the make up design more prominent. This design can be toned down for an evening out. Simply apply some eyeshadow in this shade ( bobbibrowns eyeshadow in shade 'Navajo' blends well ) to the lids and a dab of white eyeshadow in the center for a better effect. Use a lash lengthening mascara such as 'Fusion Mascara' by Max Factor  and then finish with a lipstick. M.A.C red  is long lasting with great texture.

Golden Hue Summer Dress by Jonathan Saunders

This Bright golden hue summer dress, is certainly a trend this summer. Whilst delicate florals are the easy option; super bright hues give out confidence and energy - really capturing the spirit and breeze of summer. Vogue said "Go for block-heeled sandals, wedges or flats (Sergio Rossi's are great), and add a hat   - a wide brim rather than a fascinator will be more up-to-date". The dress is not only gorgeous, but suited to many occasions. The modest neckline and floaty material adds a touch of elegance and formality to the dress; just add a clutch bag, heels and an elegant hair updo and your there!

Vogue: Obi belts by Marc Jacobs

Vogue. Where to start! From 6ft catwalk models dressed in extravagant, detailed and intricate clothing to the most desired Louis Vuitton handbags, clothing and accessories. Vogue fashion is revealed to be unique, individual and inspired. Fashion is no longer just beauty, it is a form of 'Art'.
   One of Vogue's latest trends, which i find quite exotic and oriental is the 'Obi belts'. Vogue says that the Obi belts will bring 'an Eastern promise to summer wardrobes'. The eastern styled gold waist defining belt, brings character to this oriental outfit; beautifully complimenting the purple and orange spicy colours. The Obi belts by Marc Jacobs is an expensive, tasteful and trendy accessory, easily spicing up outfits with a pinch of oriental design.


Summer holiday's are supposed to be great aren't they? day's filled with endless sunbathing, vacations somewhere abroad on a beautiful resort with white sandy beaches and a warm clear blue sea reflecting picturesque sunsets; a time to go places with friends and family and have a great time...Well my holiday so far hasn't really been eventful or much fun, they say money doesn't buy you happiness but really thats only half true! You need money to see most places of interest to have a memorable and enjoyable experience with friends and family :) The weather may be bad where I live and I may be broke, but will that stop me from having fun? Nope! If any of you feel continuously bored on holiday's, be spontaneous! do things you wouldn't usually do and you'll find that making the most of what you have and finding fun things to do yourself, turns out to be fun when you share it with the people you care about x Remember its not about where you go, its about who you go with! x
