Nude Nails

IMG_2882.JPGIMG_2887.PNG

I’m loving all things nude lately, nails included. I’m blaming Kylie Jenner and her popular nude lips. (Check out my mood board dedicated to her style). 

My favourite nude shade at the moment would have to be this one from Kate Moss’ range for Rimmel. It’s called Soul Sessions and it definitely lives up to its name. It’s a classic beige colour with a hint of blush in it to give you that little bit of soul that everyone needs in their life. The nail polish glides on easily with a nice wide brush, and you only need about two coats to create this look.

What do you think of nude nails?

This is my latest outfit inspiration. After buying some jellies recently I have been thinking about how to style them, this is just one of the many outfits that I need in my life!
If you are wondering how to achieve this look (and are from New Zealand) there are jellies almost identical to these in Wildpair and a very similar skater dress in Cotton On. In terms of the denim jacket, I haven’t spied one quite as good as this (it’s from H&M), but I’m on the look out! The red lipstick featured here is from Rimmel so Farmers will definitely have you sorted!

Rimmel 9-in1 BB Cream

When I first got this product I wan’t a fan, however after using it for about a month I’ve learnt a few tips and tricks and now I’ve started using it as a foundation alternative. I have really loved using it during the summer when I want to cover up a few things but don’t want a full face of make up.
The main thing I have found with this BB cream is that it goes on much better and lasts longer when applied with a foundation brush. The formula is much more creamy and a little thicker and when I use my fingers to apply it I find it just doesn’t blend well and sit right on my skin. It does only come in light medium and dark which may be a bit annoying for some, however the shade is pretty good for me compared to other bb creams. When you first apply it, it may look a little dark but I find that by blending it in with a foundation brush really helps, and the colour does settle down after a few minutes.
The nine ‘results’ that it is supposed to achieve are to prime, moisturise, minimise pores, conceal, cover, smooth, mattify, brighten and help protect (it’s spf 25). And after reading through that list I believe it almost does all of them! It works well to conceal, cover any imperfections and even out our skin tone. I also have really liked that it does brighten up my skin and makes me feel like I have a healthy glow. I haven’t really used it as a primer but I think I’d prefer to use a product that is specifically a primer.
Overall I’m sold on this BB cream and would definitely recommend it
*Im not sure how much this was but around $15-20 from Farmers and Kmart*
