I mentioned yesterday about a couple of dresses I bought for my friend's birthday party at The Cube on Friday night. I do outfit repeat during the day and for nights out but if it's a special occasion I like to buy something new so I feel better in it. These are my two options at the moment, they look really unflattering shapes on the hanger! I think the polka dot one is more for a daytime look so I'm leaning towards the abstract/ monochrome print t-shirt dress with some gold jewellery and my Jeffrey Campbell Litas. I also bought this Nars illuminator which you can use all over your face during the Summer or just as a highlighter on your cheeks and brows. I've only just used to today but I can already see it will become part of my daily make-up routine. I applied it using my hands to the top of my cheekbones and brows to give a light shimmer, it glides on really easily and creates a dewey glow. 

I also purchased a few nail varnishes as I'm getting bored of my current collection. I originally wanted the Models Own Matte Finish but it has proved impossible to find so I settled with the Rimmel version. I used it last night on top of a shiny gold polish which I'll feature in my next outfit post. I really like Rimmel nail polish because they have a flat application brush and dry really quickly. I highly recommend Rimmel products at the moment as they're currently on a 3 for 2 offer and who doesn't love a good bargain?
