#Bloggersdoitbetter | Brights Vs Neutrals


The #bloggersdoitbetter third post is all about brights vs neutrals, with Summer on it's way and the end of Spring in sight I've been more pulled towards Summer brights, which include lots of neon and pretty pastel shades. I decided to do a favourites post for my brights vs neutrals, everything above is what I've been loving recently - except the nail polish, which I do love but not been using much of.

I got my hands on this gorgeous bag last week from River Island (bought from asos) and just can't stop using it, it's the perfect Spring/Summer shade and become a real staple in my everyday wear - see post here. I got this purse from Paul Boutique for my Birthday back in March and I love it. This is the Lizzie neon gradient leopard print purse and is a pretty good one to include in this post due to the gradient thing going on - from neutral to bright.

Three nail lacquer that I find to be perfect for this time of year are the Barry M gelly hi-shine nail paints in Green Berry & Grape Fruit, plus Revlon's One Stop Coral. They are very bold and vibrant. Moving on to neutrals in the name of Naked 3 now, this is my most favourite makeup product right now and my go to everyday. This palette is a variety of beautiful bronze, pale pinks with lots of shimmer and some matte shades - it's just so beautiful. You can create plenty of eye looks using this and I'm forever seen with some sort of neutral looking smokey eye. Next up is this beautiful bronzer from The Body Shop. I've been using this bronzer in shade 01 since I won it, and I wear it everyday - pretty sad that I'm able to see the bottom of the pan now. Also my go to lip product is this stunning chunky lip pencil from Revlon it's one of the new matte products in the shade Elusive (I think), this is a really great shade for spring and like a pink/nude - This particular shade was a huge seller.

Lastly are these pretty pastel bracelets I picked up from Cherry Diva, together came six bracelets in pastel pink and gold  for just £5.00. I'll be doing a review on the brand very soon.
