As I type this, it’s raining outside. Granted, it’s not cold, but it’s still not quite summer! Hence today’s post on The Good Girls Guide! Dedicated to the ggeous colours, trends and inspiration of summer, I bring you some lovely Summer makeup inspiration – keeping it light, glowing, colourful and bold 🙂
Personally I think with a bit of a tan, pale pink & peach looks great on lips, while eyes can be bright and well defined – leave the heavy black liner at the bottom of your makeup bag. Mix it all with a bronzer, or glittery blush and you’ll look gorge 🙂 Happy Summer lovely ladies! xxx

Ooh wow, super gorge! I love amazing dramatic lashes – there’s something about them that just says WHAM! I had false lashes for my wedding, and I must say it makes such a difference – particularly in the photos after.
So today on The Good Girls Guide I’ve found a collection of amazing Lashes Inspiration – yes some are TOTALLY over the top, but I vow to get invited to a mad dress up party where I can rock some of these babies! But of course, gorgeous natural lashes are also possible with natural-looking falsies, just apply with a little glue after applying your eye makeup and you’re good to go. Be wow girls!

There’s nothing that says confident, powerful, sexy and strong…quite like red lipstick! Today’s post on The Good Girls Guide is dedicated to that SASSY GIRL within, bring her out with a gorgeous red pout 🙂
Ruby Red Lips | Alfred Ramos
Hazel eyes and ruby red lips
Red hair I want to caress with my fingertips
That smile of innocence jumps right at me
Like a sly fox ready to attack me
I’m just trying to catch my sigh
My heart is dancing in a moonlit sky
Don’t know why
I cry when heroes die
Do I know when?
This feeling is going to end
I have fallen into an abyss
Dreaming of the ruby red lips I can’t kiss
All my raging emotions dispel
An emptiness surrounding this southern belle
Will she turn and walk away
Just when my nerves are ready to fray
Or like a dozen roses wilting in my hand
Will she blow away in a puff like desert sand?
So how do I put out this fire?
Raging between despair and desire
And if I was looking for clemency
I’d wake up from this fantasy
As her ruby red lips vanish into the night
Blowing a kiss in her midnight flight

Since it’s Friday, The Good Girls Guide thought it would be a good idea to inspire your makeup regime so you can focus on looking glam and gorgeous this weekend, rather than on being boring and same old same old…because no one like ‘second-hand-makeup-face’!
The key for me, has always been about THE EYES! Of course, dramatic eyes is not everyone’s scene, some prefer bold lipstick or well-applied foundation and blush, but there’s nothing that can touch the artistic ability and creativity of amazing eye makeup.
Whether it’s liquid liner in electric blue, bejewelled false eyelashes, or a combination of bright coloured eyeshadows – eye makeup is just gorgeous. But remember, to stand out from the crowd doesn’t necessarily require bright colours and crazy textures. You can easily get an incredible natural look through proper blending, the right mascara and complimentary face makeup. So without further ado – check out our Weekend Makeup Inspiration for Dramatic Eyes:
