Spring Beauty Favourites

Tuesday, 17 May 2016

Spring, oh how I love you. Lighter evenings, warmer weather, and of course the makeup - spring makeup will always be my favourite! I love how fresh and glowy spring time makeup is compared to the vampy Winter mattes, and with all the new makeup releases it's a makeup lovers dream. I'm weak and I can't say no to pretty new makeup damn.

Today I thought I'd share a few of my spring (I'm trying not to say that word too many times but it's turning out to be impossible) beauty favourites because I love talking about the products I've been loving lately and these products are serious holy grail status. Spoiler: you need everything.


When it comes to my base during the spring time I like to go for something that feels lightweight whilst still providing me with the coverage I need and my current go to has been NARS Sheer Glow. This foundation has been a favourite of mine for a while now and I just love how it leaves my skin still looking like skin whilst lasting all day, it ticks all the right boxes. As for concealer I've been loving the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer, it's one I can trust to give me coverage without looking dry and caked up on my undereye area.

For cheek products I've been loving the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Palette, oh my it's a thing of beauty. Containing a bronzer, blush and highlighter makes it so much easier to use for lazy people like myself and it's perfect for traveling with. All three of the shades are beautifully pigmented and wear really well, the highlighter is honestly a gift to earth from the makeup gods. You need this palette asap.

Cream shadows have been my product of choice when it comes to eyes, especially when they come in stick form as they're just so easy to wear. The one that I've been reaching for almost daily the past couple of weeks has been the By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Frozen Quartz - no cream eyeshadow will ever compare to this shimmering little beauty, it just really soothes my makeup loving soul.

If I fancy adding a little something more (basically if I haven't snoozed my alarm 12 times.. oops) then I'll apply an eyeshadow over the Ombre Blackstar to give it that extra pop. The one I've been loving most lately has been the Nars Duo in Silk Road, containing both a peachy nude and a rose gold shade making it perfect for Spring. If I'm wanting to feel a bit glam (or at least attempt to!) I've also been loving the Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Emerveille, very similar to the shade on the right side of the Nars duo only a tad more metallic.

Narrowing down my favourite lip products was a challenge and a half as there's so many, but I managed to eventually! Up first is the Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo in Conte which is a fairly new release but one that I've been loving so dearly. It's certainly more of a tinted lip balm than a lipstick but that makes it perfect for that effortless Spring time look. The other lipstick I've been loving is the YSL Rouge Volupte in Rose Opera, the most perfect rose pink shade that I always seem to find myself loving through the warmer months.

So those are a few of my spring beauty favourites, it was so hard to cut it down to just this lot as there's been so many products I've been loving. What are some of your Spring must haves?
