Summer beauty and fashion must haves ♥


Hello my dolls, hope you're well! 
You can probably see something different on my blog. We have created a brand new layout and a banner! I hope you all love it as much as I do! 

I've put together a beach outfit for you guys for some inspo and included my summer beauty must haves.

A long black kaftan/cover-up looks super chic and goes with any bikini. This black one is from Topshop (here) which they do in white aswell! The khaki bikini is from River Island which is no longer available unfortunately, but you can find a similar one here. I've paired the bikini and cover up with hermes flat sandals, a straw trilby and a beach bag.


Summer screams a bronzy glow to me. I love dewy make-up as many of you know so even though I'm a winter kinda girl, I love summer make-up! A minimal, light coverage base such as Mac Face and Body is perfect for these months teamed with a beautiful highlighter. 
Starting from the top left is the Charlotte Tilbury Supermodel Body. It's an actual god sent. It's says it's made to shape, hydrate and tone your limbs. The metal roller-ball applicator distributes the product beautifully onto your skin leaving a natural healthy glow. 
If you want to look like you have just had a shower in shimmer and diamonds, Scott Barns' Body Bling is the product for you! It does the same job as the Charlotte Tilbury one only with an extra kick. I love this more for the evening.
An alternative to those are shimmery dry oils which are perfect for holidays when you are tanned and need to add some more glow to your arms and legs. They hydrate your skin without leaving it too greasy.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors and MAC Strobe Cream are the perfect liquid highlighters to wear under your foundation (or alone!) to give you a dewy look. The Becca one comes in many colours so you can find one which compliments your skin tone perfectly. 
If you haven't ever tried MAC Fix+, what are you doing with your life?! It's the perfect refreshing mist which sets everything on your face and can be used throughout the day to freshen up your make-up.
I love my highlighters and could write up a separate post on that, but I have to narrow it down somehow! So the two highlighters I've chosen are the Laura Geller in Gilded Honey (the photo is of the other colour, but the gold one is the one ya'll need!!) and the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector - Pressed in Opal. Both of these highlighters are super pigmented and make you look all pretty!
Finally, there's no summer make-up without bronzers. Nars Laguna is more of a cool toned bronzer whereas the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess is more of a orangey brown. and it all depends on what look you're going for and what undertone your skin is.

I hope you enjoyed this post and it helped some of you. And do not blame me for all the make-up and clothes you're about to buy!! Enjoy your holidays!

Hey

Hey my dolls!
Hope you're all doing great and enjoying the beautiful weather we've been blessed with in the UK! Although it's currently pouring it down where I am.. Typical.

I just wanted to make a quick post regarding on why I haven't been updating my blog as much as I would like to.
As some of you may or may not know, I'm a Muslim and it's currently the month of ramadhan. So let's just be honest here.. Having to fast for 20 hours, I've been getting super lazy and not having the motivation to blog. Terrible, I know! 
However, not to worry, there's something exciting happening for us all that's coming soon! STYLERELOAD will be having a re-launch! Aaaah!

It's almost been two years of me blogging and being active on social media therefore I thought it would be the perfect time to bring new, fresh content on my blog.
So please bear with me while we work on making the site better. I will try to continue to post when I can but be sure to follow me and keep up to date on my social media (instagram - @xrdxo and twitter - @xrdxo) where I post every single day!
Take care my angels and I will speak to you again soon!!! Xx
