British Summer time.... And Sundancer

Yes.. that is the dark gloomy sky I have been looking at all day, how grim!
Anyhoo NOTD - Sundancer, very very hard to apply, but I like the colour... sorry if its messy, this formula was tricky, but I think all yellows are tricky!!

I have been catching up on youtube this week... have to say I have found a couple new ones which I am enjoying.. if you like make up tutorials..check these out

I am trying to revamp my look, make up, clothes etc... wondering if you guys would like make up looks or something?? I am gonna figure out getting a camera and stuff, may do a bit of youtube action, mainly nails..but also some Make up stuff.
Really need a new foundation, atm I use MAC thinking of trying Laura Mercier, any recommendations for mineral make up?? Bare Minerals ID looks nice, but I have no experience of the brand...don't want a big gross breakout lol I need heavy coverage to cover up old acne scars..minerals I find super buildable..without looking cakey!
