Personalised Macbook Pro 13" Skin - Caseapp (link)*
Caseapp are a brand that I feature fairly regularly on the blog and will be beginning to feature more of their products this upcoming year, as I now work with them as their brand ambassador. They are also a brand whose products I genuinely enjoy using and featuring/writing about, as I love how you can add your own personal touch of style to your devices such as your iPhone or Macbook and many more...
One product that I have been meaning to try out was their skins, as I have always wanted to accessorise my mac with something striking. That being said I decided to choose one of my favourite photos of the desert that I took a couple of summers back on my trip to California. I just adore how something so simple as picture can instantly bring back those joyful summertime memories, and with it being on my laptop it can act as a subtle reminder of one of my favourite places.
The lovely people over at Caseapp are also offering an exclusive 20% off discount for readers of Style Peaches, just type in PEACHES20CA to enjoy!

I also managed to score this (gorgeous) pastel pink bag in the sale too from a visit to my local New Look for only £6.50, it reminds of something that Charlotte Simone *faux-fur accessory queen* would design, and for that price how could I not resist.

Key Products: Mineral Powder Foundation by Beautiful Movements Cosmetics via Holland & Barrats | Max Factor Smokey Eye Drama Kit in "01 Opulent Nudes"* | Max Factor Lipfinity Long Lasting Lipstick in "17 Always Elegant"* | KIKO Lipliner in "515 Rouge Noir"
Nancy Downs eye make-up is based on a very dark smokey eye-using black eyeshadow as I wanted to make this more of a 'wearable' look I took it down a shade by opting for browns and taupes. I first begin by applying the lightest shade from the palette all over the lid, as a base colour and to block out an uneven skin tones along my lid. I then began to apply the taupe brown shade all of my lid and begin to intensify the colour along the crease. To define the eye further I take the darkest brown colour (which also doubles up as a brow powder) and apply it my crease blending it slightly out towards the outer corner of my eye. I also added a light dusting of the "Champagne Pink" shade by adding it to the centre of my eye and blending the colour outwards, for a subtle hint of shimmer.
As I wanted to keep the lips as the statement look for the make-up I skipped eyeliner (which coming from an eyeliner addict was a strange step to take) and went in with lashings of mascara.
Now onto the lips, for this berry inspired colour I used two products to create this. I first lined my lips with the KIKO Lipliner in "515" which is becoming a new favourite lipliner of mine due to its intense pigmentation and striking deep berry colour, as well as how its incredibly smooth to apply. I then added the Max Factor Lipfinity in "17 Always Elegant" to the centre of my lips for subtle ombre effect, which again is an amazing lip product that is extremely pigmented and easy to apply.
So there you have it my take on one of my favourite characters make-up look.

This jumper feels like I'm channeling my inner "Kawaii-self" thanks to its lilac shade and Japanese cartoon inspired cloud print. In fact a lovely friend gave me hers after receiving two by mistake in a recent OASAP order. I just love how girly it is and how the jumper injects a shade of pastel colour to my outfit, which is normally along the lines of all black/"gothic". For todays I look I wanted to add a harsh contrast to the jumper, both colour and fabric wise, with that in mind I opted for a pair of my ripped high waisted Mom Jeans from Boohoo to pair with the jumper. Keeping along the "harsh contrast" feel I also paired the jeans with a pair of my beloved Dr. Martens which I think I have managed to *finally* break in. For those of you who have ever owned a pair of DM's know exactly what I mean when I say that your feet will have to suffer for a couple of months before the pleasure of wearing them kicks in...Needless to say I've binned the plasters and embracing the DM's.
