Spring is finally here and can I just say I have missed it greatly! Now I can break out the pastel nail polishes and pretty pink lipsticks to my hearts content! I’m sat here now looking at the weather forecast and apparently tomorrow, your yesterday, is meant to reach 19 degrees! Positively tropical for this time of the year in Britain! Anyway I thought it was about time I gave my makeup bag a little shake up, so here we go…
After moisturising I like to try and give my skin a nice healthy glow and I’ve really been liking the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector. It’s a water based illuminator which can be used as a highlighter or before foundation, I prefer to use it as a primer of sorts. In the Spring I like to put away my higher coverage foundations and opt for slightly lighter coverage alternatives. I’ve been reaching for the Rimmel Lasting Finish Nude Foundation it gives more coverage than a tinted moisturiser but less than a full coverage foundation. My favourite way to apply this is with my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, (which has sadly started to disintegrate after less than 4 months..cry with me.) To add some colour to the cheeks Benefit Lollitint* is perfect, though you have to work fast or you’ll have three blobs that won’t budge all day! I like using either my fingers or my Real Techniques Stippling Brush.
For eyes I like to stick to quite light shades so the Avon Berry Love Quad is a perfect pick, it makes my eyes a nice green instead of their usual pond water colour. For mascara it has to be the latest Benefit product to take the blogging world by storm: Roller Lash. It makes my lashes look amazing! For brows, other than getting them shaped, which I really need to do, I’m using the ModelCo More Brows Brow Gel, it adds colour to fill sparse areas but also keeps them in place all day. Finally for liner I tend not to go for wings and might prefer tight lining my eyes with the Rimmel Nude Scandal Eyes Liner as it makes me look awake and ready to face the day.
Finally for lips and nails I have some pretty choices. Instead of a lipstick I’ve chosen a balm and gloss combo to get me through Spring. A balm such as the Maybelline Pink Punch is essential for me during Spring; I get terrible hayfever and my lips get dry, this not only hydrates them it also adds a pink sheen. For the gloss I’d have to choose the NYX Beige Mega Shine Lipgloss, it smells like cherries and is a gorgeous pink, (not actually Beige at all! Who even named it?) And nails I have two pastel shades from the BarryM Gelly Hi-Shine formula: Rose Hip and Sugar Apple, both of which I love and are such pretty shades. In all honesty I would love to dipdye my hair the colour of Sugar Apple!
