Summer! I love summer. The heat, the sun, the colours…I love it all.
Sitting in the park behind our apartment one day I was thinking of what videos I should do over the summer. All I could think of was the usual makeup looks or DIY projects but I wanted to put together a cohesive collection so to speak. As I’m eating my freshly cut homemade fruit salad it dawned on me…Fruit Salad!! AH!
My summer series will be inspired by fruit salad! At this point thoughts and ideas came rushing to me. I decided to narrow it down to my favorite fruits. (just) Peachy, Strawberry (fields), Grape (gorgeous), and to throw a spin-Pink Lemonade.
Ive already filmed and uploaded my Just Peachy portion of my fruit salad summer series. It was fun coming up with different looks and tutorials inspired by peaches.
My first video was DIY Kool-Aid lip gloss. I had seen this on pinterest a number of times and thought the idea was so cool. unfortunately I could not find peach kool-aid brand so I used the generic walmart brand. I found it worked very well 🙂
Check out the video to see for yourself…
The next video was my makeup tutorial. I pulled out my BH Cosmetics palette and went to town swatching and choosing. I really love this palette and I find I can always rely on it for any colour I could possibly want.Click here to read more about it:120 Color Eyeshadow Palette 2nd Edition
As for the Peachy make up look check out the video. I used peach, brown and yellow to bring the look together and emulate all the colours on a perfectly ripe peach
With this series I decided to challenge myself with easy nail art. I’m not the best with nails but really wanted to test out some ideas I had floating in my brain. With this nail tutorial I tried a duo colour ombre technique with orange and yellow. I then used a sharpie, again I’m a lazy newbie, to try and emulate the shape that a peach gets. I found it was a stretch, what do you think?
So I have left only enough vidspace for 3 videos per fruit so the nail + OOTD was my last Just Peachy! inspired.
I am in the process of working on my Strawberry fields and Grape Gorgeous videos now. I’ll keep you posted on all of that fun once I get it all uploaded.
What are your favorite summer fruits?
