Soft Glam

ZARA Dark Grey Dress {LINK} | HOUSE OF CB Duster Jacket {LINK}* | OFFICE Barely There Heels {LINK}*

A “Soft Glam” makeup tutorial and a neutral outfit of the day?
Sounds about Shirley!

I just had to have this dark grey number I bought from Zara recently, and for it’s price (£12.99) you really can’t go wrong! I can style it a number of ways, glam and casual too, so it was an instant hit for me!

It’s getting cooler, so taking a trip up the hill to get the shot was quite brave, but I’m glad I did as lots of you liked the outfit on instagram! Thank you.

I’m really loving playing with makeup at the moment, and if you’re in need of a little inspo, then watch my latest tutorial below!

Now where did my scarf and boots go? ^.~

    You look fab in this Zara dress. I almost forgot how cold it can get. But yesterday’s weather was a quick reminder. Love this makeup, it’s so everyday. You make wearing lashes look so easy. Can’t seem to get a hang of it.

    Enjoy the rest of your week.

    I love this middle parting on you, always looks so beautiful with your widow’s peak :)
    You are always so good at explaining in your voiceovers, I think I might be putting those Zoeva brushes on my christmas list 😉 I’ve been using a beauty sponge for my foundation but I think the brush gives better coverage – thank for that MAC Fix+ tip. Beautiful result as always! xx <3
