Sping is almost here, and today when leaving work I couldnt believe how much of a bright and sunny day it was!
Spring calls for a few changes in my makeup bag and here are some of the things I have already started using, or will be using more regularly in the next few weeks. Im thinking fresh glowy skin, neutral eyes and pink tones for my cheeks and lips.
Mac cream colour base in 'Hush'
My friend Jasmina introduced me to this cream highlighter last year and although I dont use it often, I really like it. It is quite a subtle highlighter but adds a lovely pink-ish glow to the cheeks.
Bourjois city radiance foundation
I have been using this foundation on and off for a couple of weeks now. Its definately not as full coverage as I usually wear but it does have a medium and buildable coverage with a lovely glowy and fresh feeling finish. I think for Spring and Summer when ive got good skin and no breakouts this is going to be perfect.
Stila eyes are the window palette in 'Spirit'
This palette has a good mixture of colours for Spring. I love the light shades on the left for a nice day time eye look and the rose gold shade in the middle is just beautiful. I cant wait to experiment more with this palette this season.
Nars Turkish delight lipgloss
Although I do love matte lips, I feel like I need a change. This is one of my all time favourite lip glosses. It is a light pink which isnt sticky at all and looks great over most pink or even nude lipsticks.
Nars audacious lipstick in 'Anita'
Although this looks quite dark in the picture its actually a really nice medium dusky pink. I love the formula of these Nars lipsticks, they arent drying at all and they last for ages on my lips. I love this kind of soft pink colour and I think the gloss will look perfect on top.
Charlotte Tilbury blusher in 'Love is the drug'
I was going through my collection the other day looking for a nice pink blusher and completly forgot I had this. This isnt really shimmery but it does add some sort of nice healthy glow. I wore this for the first time in ages the other day and got complimented twice on my blusher. I love how it has a mix of 2 shades of pink so I can adjust how dark or intense I want it.
And lastly I thought I would include one of my 'Library of fragrance' scents in 'Sunshine'. Due to saving for a house we arent having a holiday this year so ill spray this whenever I feel sad or jealous of people going on holiday LOL. Joke aside, this is a unique summery and sweet scent. Think vanilla ice cream, suncream, sea salt and coconut.
