It’s getting so close to Summer that I can almost taste the cocktails and barbecue evenings and I know it’s not only me that’s getting excited.
When it comes to Summer I think we can start bringing out the bolder and brighter colours. What better way to do it than making a yummy orange and lemon cocktails on your eyes.
I look this look, I think it screams Summer and can be worn with a nude like I have, or you could even bump it up more with a bright orange, red, or pink lip. The world is your oyster! So grab yourself a cocktail and let’s get into it!
