As we recently collaborated with Miss Sporty on our birthday makeup looks for a video on our channel, we wanted to talk to you guys about the products that we loved using to recreate our birthday makeup looks! Miss Sporty products are so affordable, such great quality, and are perfect to create makeup looks for any special occasion! We wanted to talk through some of our favourite Miss Sporty products that we used to create these looks!

It's Lucy typing! For my birthday makeup look I really wanted to go for my favourite signature makeup look. A gold smokey eye is always my 'go-to' and my all time favourite makeup look. As I was wearing an embellished gold dress, I really wanted to keep my makeup really golden and bronze. I decided to use this really pretty eyeshadow palette, which is the Miss Sporty Studio Colour Quattro Eyeshadow in 'Brown Eyes!' This palette includes four super pigmented shimmery eyeshadow shades that blend so amazingly together to make the most perfect bronze smokey eye! I used the golden shade all over my eyelid and then took the darkest brown shade through my outer corner. The lightest shade in the palette is perfect as a brow highlight, as this really helps lift the brow, with adding a little bit of shimmer. It's the perfect eyeshadow palette if you love creating a golden smokey eye!

As you may know, Lydia and I have been absolutely obsessed with then Miss Sporty Perfect Stay Liquid Concealer for the last couple of months! This concealer is the perfect concealer to create flawless skin. It's so easy to blend with still having the most amazing full coverage. I used this concealer underneath my eyes to cover and conceal any darkness but it's also great coverage to use on blemishes, keeping them completely covered! We use the 'light' shade as its perfect to brighten underneath my eyes. This concealer is definitely our favourite drugstore concealer because its so long lasting and I really do believe that it stays in place all day! I decided to go for a nude glossy lip to finish my look, so that the eyes would be the main focus! I used the Miss Sporty My BFF Lipstick in 'My Sweet Mocha'  and the Miss Sporty Precious Shine Lipgloss in 'Inestimable Copper' which created the perfect lip.

It's now Lydia typing! As I was wearing a black skater dress, I decided to go for a silver smokey eye and a statement pink lip! I think this look would look perfect for a birthday night out! I used the Miss Sporty Studio Colour Quattro Eyeshadow in 'Black' and I instantly knew these eyeshadows would be perfect to create a shimmery silver smokey eye, the silvery tones of the four eyeshadows blend amazingly together! To intensify my eye look, I added the Miss Sporty Studio Lash The Miaoww Eyeliner to the top of my lash line and because it's shaped like a pen, it makes it super easy to use! These new blushers from Miss Sporty are my new favourites! I love how they add the perfect amount of colour to my cheeks and create the perfect flush with added shimmer for a really pretty radiant glowy look. I used the Miss Sporty Insta Glow Blusher in 'Glowing Mauve' which complimented my pink lip perfectly! For my lips I wore the Miss Sporty My BFF Lipstick in 'My Favourite Pink' which made my look statement.

A couple of weeks ago we spent a few days in the beautiful Bahamas, a place that we've always dreamed about visiting! I even remember looking at the world map and circling the Bahamas as 'the dream' place I would always love to visit, so being able to visit this beautiful island was the biggest dream come true. The Bahamas was one of our stops on the most magical cruise trip, the Disney Dream! We spent the day at the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort and it certainly lived up to its name, it was absolute Paradise! We spent the morning at Cove Beach, which was one of many beaches at the Atlantis resort, where we took these photos! Ever since we saw the Mary-Kate and Ashley 'Holiday In The Sun' film, we always said that this hotel was one that we had to visit in our lifetime, that film was one of our childhood favourites! I'm sure if any of you have seen this film you will understand why we were so excited to see this hotel and spend time there! Let us know in the comments your dream destination!

Who say's you can't wear a bomber jacket to the beach? Especially if it's got palm tree's on it! I've had this bomber jacket in my wardrobe for a couple of years now and it's one of those timeless pieces that comes out every summer and for every holiday! I purchased this from River Island a couple of years ago but I will see if I can link any bomber jackets similar! It's perfect to throw over swimwear if you feel like you've had a little too much sun or if you want to cover up a bit more on the beach. I also wore this black swimsuit from ASOS and accessorised with hoop earrings and my favourite Ray Ban sunglasses! I get so many questions about these sunglasses so i'll link them down below! Hopefully this have given you guys some inspiration for your own beach looks for the summer!
