OOTD- Coralista

Hey lovelies!

I hope you're all enjoying the sunshine today! I've had a nice lazy day sunbathing and having a picnic with my friends Matt and Loma and it's made me want to blog about the summery outfit I wore to the Platform drama festival awards last week...

Dress- Arc
Heels- Ebay 
Tan- St.Moriz medium mousse 

I called this post coralista for two reasons, firstly because of the colour of my new cut out skater dress from Arc (my new favourite clothes shop) which I'm absolutely in love with as it's ridiculously flattering, I can't get enough of cut out dresses and the colour is perfect for the spring and summer...and secondly because the beautiful Alex, who is in the stunning ivory River Island dress above (I wish I found things like that in River Island!), did my bronzer and blush for me using Benefit hoola and CORALista, which I both adore and now have firm places on my ever growing make up wish list! 


I thought I'd show you what my make up looked like up close (bear in mind this was the end of the night please!) and also what my new Max Factor Colour Elixir lipstick in 'Angel Pink' looks like on the lips. I personally am now a massive fan of this lippy as it manages to have a gorgeous creamy moisturising consistency that easily glides onto the lips whilst at the same time providing a matte colour and the shade 'Angel pink' is exactly what I've been looking for and will definitely become a spring/summer favourite. 


Another reason why I love this lipstick and the coral colour of my dress is that I think they look lovely with a tan and you may have noticed I'm looking pretty tanned in these photos compared to normal and that's because I've been absolutely loving my St. Moriz instant self tanning mousse! I'm not going to do a full review just yet as I want to use it a few more times first, but my first impressions are brilliant as it gives you a natural non-orange colour (although I don't think I'll be going any darker than I am in these photos!), never goes streaky and seems to take quite a while before it patches and fades, plus it's a ridiculous price of about £3! I honestly don't know how I have managed to go so long without fake tan in my life haha

What do you think of my coral dress and nude heels combo? What are your favourite spring colours?

As I said I've spent the day sun bathing and eating picnic food, which is great as I went out to Pop Tarts last night and haven't really felt like doing anything too strenuous today! I am off out tonight as well though for a social with the cast of one of the shows I did for the drama festival last weekend so that should be fun!

I hope you've all had lovely sunny Sundays!
Love Meg

  25. Looks like he did Bronzer (hoola) on the lower lower Cheek and Coralista on the apples. That's how I usually wear Coralista and benefit's ten. I also use Benefit's lip/cheek stain in poppy (apples) and the darker side of the 10 bronzer on the lower cheek. It's really pretty!! Love your pics! Pretty dress, it totally fits you! :)
