NUDE SEQUIN DRESS (SHOWN IN PICTURE)

The races is a perfect chance to dress up and be classy! I love this embellised dress, it is a great choice is you want to stand out or just love glitzy girly clothing like me. I would style this with a nude colour bag with sandal heels. As the weather is cold this time of year a nice cream long coat would so great with this outfit.

CREAM LONG COAT

The races is such a great day out to hang with friends, family and have a few bets to win some money!

If your wanting to wear something more longer over the knee, midi dresses are perfect.

I have found this beautiful dusty blue long sleeve lace bodycon dress which I think will compliment all skin tones.

Nude sandals heels go so well with any outfit, they are classy and simple which makes your dress stand out more.

Casual Loungewear Outfits

Hello Everyone, Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I wanted to share with you some great places for loungewear.

I think it’s great to have some loungewear if you don’t feel like wearing jeans around the house if your relaxing as it can be uncomfortable.

Missguided and Pretty little thing have some amazing styles of loungewear. I love the crop tops with high waisted joggers it’s on trend and you can still look fashionable but feel comfortable.

Bodysuits are also great to wear with a pair of joggers if you don’t want to feel like your wearing baggy clothes, a bodysuit will enhance your curves making you feel more put together when you are running errands.

I love styling my super casual outfits with a pair of sliders from Adidas or some trainers with sunglasses if I’m going out.

Summer Fashion

Summer fashion 2018

Its summer and its my favourite time of year!

Around June time I love to start shopping for new summer clothes. The go to places to shop online for me are Missguided, Pretty Little Thing, River Island, Topshop, BooHoo and ASOS. 

Its the perfect time of year to start wearing more colourful outfits, wearing lace and crochet and getting into those summer dresses you have been saving.

I have recently been abroad and I personally like to plan out my outfits before going away. There is nothing worse than having too much and overpacking or not having enough and wearing outfits over and over again. Do not get me wrong I wear a few pieces more than once on vacation but its just nice to have many outfit choices for the evening time.

Whites, yellows and blues are such beautiful colours to be worn in the summer; I feel they  compliment my olive skin tone. I love wearing white lace on a summers evening with a pair of sandal heels or pretty evening sandals. For the day time a yellow summer dress or playsuit.

What I am wearing on the featured image is from Boohoo.com they do some lovely pieces. I think crochet is a great summery material, it is thicker than lace but has beautiful detailing, If you are thinking of purchasing something made of out crochet, you can get some lovely beach cover ups, maxi dresses and bikinis.  Crochet never goes out of fashion and top online fashion stores always sell something made out of this material.

Primark Haul – May 2018

Hello Everyone,

Last weekend I went on a shopping spree to Primark, I have not been in ages and wanted to get a few pieces for holiday! I managed to find some items that I love and think will be perfect for summer.

Before going to primark, I love watching primark hauls on youtube just to see if there is anything I like so I can look out for it when in shops. I wanted to share with you two items that I found which were a bargain and good quality.

I first found these beautiful powder pink culottes which were £13. I got these trousers in a size 8 and fit perfectly. I styled them up with a crop cami top and to dress it up, I added a white blazer from pretty little thing. I will link the blazer here if you would like to check it out. – White BlazerWhite Blazer

For shoes I decided to wear my Dune london court heels. I think these shoes come in different colours, they recently brought out a red pair which look gorgeous. I have had these for a while now they are suede so its good to look after them. Even getting a suede shoe kit just to keep them in good condition. I love these shoes as they give any outfit a classy look.

I need to get some more colourful bags but kept to a neutral colour and styled it with a DKNY bag. I have had this bag for nearly two years now and it is in great condition. I love DKNY bags as they always last me a long time and is worth the money. You can get DKNY bags at selfridges, house of fraiser.

I found these pretty culottes online in Topshop and think they are perfect for the summer time. These look like a light weight material and love the buttons and detailing around the waist. They are a little more pricey at £25. CULOTTES

The second item I purchased was this lovely red knit jumpsuit and when I tried this on I fell in love with it even more, it fits me so well and compliments my figure. The material is light weight so is great for the summer. The colour is a vibrant red and very flattering if your going on a date or night out with the girls. I will be taking this on holiday with me and will look great with sandals.

This playsuit also cost me £13 and got a size 8. I was worried about the straps being too big but was just fine. I styled this jumpsuit with black suede court heels that are from ASOS. You could also wear nude sandal heels with this jumpsuit if you wanted to tone it down. To style this up even more, wearing a leather jacket would really fit this look.

You can go follow my instagram page @georginalongmakeup to see more styles. I am going to be uploading more fashion content for you. I hope this post has helped you out and maybe when next in primark want to purchase these lovely items.

What To Take On A Short Getaway

Hi Loves, today I wanted to share with you my ideas of what to take when you fancy going on a short break. Everyone now and then likes to get away from reality just to relax. If you are going away for example 3-4 nights it is hard to think what to take because you don’t want to over pack and you don’t want to run out of clothes. Before I go abroad I like to plan outfits for the Day and Night this way I feel more organised. Bringing your favourite jewellery can help dress up the outfits, I love Mango & River Island for when it comes to fashion jewellery as I find their items to be dainty which I love!

When it comes to makeup when going abroad, I like wearing a light tinted moisturiser especially if I am going to a warm/hot country. Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturiser is perfect to use when abroad, it has SPF 20 which gives you extra protection from the UV Rays. It gives you a no makeup look and feels very light on the skin and adds a soft hint of colour that evens and enhances skin without hiding it.

 

Hair products can be a pain to take away as they come in big bottles and take up space in the suitcase. I have found a great travel kit from Ouai. I think this travel kit is perfect and has every thing you need when it comes to your hair, The hair products also smell divine.

OUAI_On_My_Ouai_Kit_1507104773

Contains:
– Dry Shampoo 40g
– Texturizing Hair Spray 40g
– Smooth Spray 49ml
– Treatment Masque Packettes 3 x 9ml

Ouai Hair Care is created by Celebrity Hairstylist Jen Atkin, the one behind some of our favourite celebrity stunning hair look, including Gigi Hadid, Klan Kardashian and Gwen Stefani, to name a few. OUAI (pronounced “way”) which means yes in a Parisian way.

“It’s about saying yes to being that effortlessly cool girl. To getting real. And to looking chic, no matter how many followers you have.”, said Jen.

No glam squad is needed when you have Ouai hair care to help you achieve your #hairgoals.

 

Sunglasses and a small card holder/wallet is a MUST for when I go abroad, Its nice to take away a pair of shades, I have found some gorgeous ones from Ray Ban.

I love the shape and the colour of these sunglasses they are different, not too big and on trend.

Ray-Ban describes its geometric sunglasses as a cross between a circle and a square – the cool hexagonal silhouette is particularly flattering on both long and round face shapes. This gold-tone pair is fitted with the label’s ‘silver flash’ lenses that have an eye-catching mirrored finish. The tortoiseshell acetate tips ensure all-day comfort.

I have found this adorable Gucci Card Holder, I think this one is stylish and on trend. The card holder is leather which will last a while, Great if you are taking away a small cross body bag as will fit nicely leaving you with more room in your bag.

Gucci’s ‘Marmont’ cardholder is a chic alternative to a bulky wallet. Made in Italy from quilted leather, it has four card slots and a middle compartment to hold receipts or tickets. The burnished ‘GG’ hardware is a signature pulled from the brand’s archives. – Net -A-Porter.

 

I was scrolling though River Island.com and came across these two items which I adored! Perfect and cute for a short trip.

The sandals are unique and I am very much into tassels recently, they have a Boho Chic look. This cute mini suitcase I came across is so Chic and has beautiful detailing with a snake skin effect. A great alternative for a luxury looking travel case.

NYE 1920’s Style

Happy New year everyone, I hope you all had a lovely New Year’s Eve! For New Years I went to a fancy dress party it was a really good night! I decided to go for a 1920’s Gatsby style. I came across this dress online and had to buy it, I love the sequins and tassels. Tassels were very popular to wear back in the 1920’s. I added some gorgeous earrings I purchased last year from noxa jewellery and my shoes I got from boohoo.com

Pretty little thing have some gorgeous dresses, it was hard to choose what dress to get. I would recommend pretty little thing or Missguided when finding a dress for a night out, they always have sales and offers so you can get a good deal!

The earrings I am wearing in the picture are sold out but I have found a pair which are stunning on noxa jewellery.  Earrings.

NYE Makeup Look

I love getting ready for NYE, I have created a look that I think will be great for a night out. For my eyes I have created this gold/green shimmer eyeshadow going into a black smokey eye. I thought to do something different for a change as I am always using the same eyeshadow colours. The gold and green tones made my blue eyes pop and to finish off the eye look I applied some full wispy lashes.

I started off by applying a base colour to my eyelid, this can be any white/creamy tone eyeshadow that you have. I used my  25A Copper Spice morphe palette for this and applied the product using a flat brush. As always I use my MAC Fix + and spray the product on to my brush as this makes the eyeshadow stay on longer and gives more of a pigmented effect. Continuing using my morphe palette I applied a light warm orange/brown eyeshadow using a crease blending brush.

For the centre of the lid I used the Makeup Geek Dirty Martini Eyeshadow, this is a light green colour. I would highly recommend makeup geek eyeshadows, they are known for their great pigmentation and are easily to blend. It is important to keep blending your eyeshadows together, this will give you a smoother look to avoid any harsh lines. I went back to my morphe palette and picked up a slightly darker brown tone to apply into my crease, this will give my eye more definition and over the top of my green eyeshadow I used a gold shimmer eyeshadow, you can use a flat brush or your finger and lightly apply this over the centre of the lid. I then went in with a grey/black tone eyeshadow only applying a little bit to my crease just to put the eye look together. I picked up my blended brush once again and blended every thing out.

To give me a glow on my face I used my Gerard Cosmetics Highlighter in the colour Grace. For foundation I used my born this way foundation by too faced, the reason I used this foundation is because it gives a full coverage which I think is great for a night out as it will last longer and look great in photos. For my Lips I applied Benefit Sugar Bomb Lip Gloss, I adore this product it is really glossy and has a lot of moisture. Plus it is not sticky like some lip glosses you get.

 

To get full wispy lashes, Lily lashes have the best lashes you can get plus you can get 20+ wears out of them, thats very long lasting! I have the lashes ‘Miami’ the popular style and most sold as Kylie Jenner uses these lashes!

‘An ultra-wispy set of false lashes, ideal for achieving an Insta-worthy finish. The Miami lash has been seen on Kylie Jenner on the red carpet over and over. This 3D Mink Lash is the perfect way to gain a seductive finish to your favorite glam moments. Ultra-long, yet incredibly lightweight, these lashes sit seamlessly along the lash-line for a comfortable wear.’ – Lily Lashes
