I have started to think more about my overall makeup looks recently and have been trying to mix them up a bit. In the past I have tended just to stick to the same tried and tested look and products regardless of what I was wearing or where I was going. But there are so many amazing, bright, interesting colours and formulas around at the moment, and so many great places to get makeup inspiration from that I am thinking more and more about doing my makeup to compliment my outfits.

yoomoo (the brand who make the super tasty (low fat) frozen yogurt) is currently running a #yoobeauty competition, giving you the chance to win a trip to San Francisco by creating a makeup look inspired by one of the three flavours of their frozen yogurt - Mixed Berry, Strawberry or Tropical. (More information on the competition at the end of this post).

This week I have created a Tropical inspired makeup look and i'm wearing an amazing fruit print tropical dress that used to be my mums in the 60s! 

I wanted the overall look to be bright and happy and to give the appearance that I live on a tropical island.

On my face, after applying a light foundation I added highlighter to my cheekbones and a bronzer to my cheeks. On my eyes I put a light gold sparkly eye shadow then used a blue eye pencil and black mascara. On my lips i went for this amazing bright, glossy coral colour - it's almost fluorescent. And then I painted my nails a bright orange colour - to match the yoomoo Tropical ice lolly!

Tropical makeup was a fun one to create and one that I will definitely wear again - especially in the summer time when i'm dressing for a colourful party or next wearing this dress.

If you would like to enter yoomoo's beauty competition to WIN a holiday to San Francisco (worth £2500) all you have to do is create either a Strawberry, Tropical or Mixed Berry themed makeup look and either upload it to yoomoo's Facebook page or to your Instagram and tag #yoobeauty and then keep an eye on yoomoo’s Instagram and Facebook pages.

I have one more look (Mixed Berry) to do so please come back next week to check it out!
