I cannot contain my excitement, spring is finally here! Yay. The reason I know this is because yesterday my friends and I sat outside for lunch in the glorious sunshine, and I didn't feel cold in the slightest. With spring come pastels, florals, pretty dresses and spring make up.
In spring I like to be a bit more adventurous with my make up, but don't be fooled my way of being "adventurous" is by using more pink toned neutrals and corals. I would love to be able to pull of bright out there colours, but I look like a little girl who has stole her mothers make up and had too much fun applying it, you know what I mean!
First I started with a base of Rimmel Match Perfection foundation in the lightest shade "Light Porcelain" (Review to follow) I buffed this into the skin using my all time favourite Real Techniques Buffing Brush. I then powdered with the usual Rimmel Stay Matte in "Translucent". Then I contoured using my Sleek face form Palette in "Light" I LOVE this palette I highly recommend it!
I took the lightest shimmery shade in my Wet n Wild "Walking on Eggshells" palette and put it all over my eye lid. If you don't have this palette as it is not available readily in the UK I would use the lightest shade in the MUA "Heaven and Earth" Palette. Next I took my favourite eye shadow of all time! "Paradisco" by MAC this is the most beautiful coral colour with gold shimmer running through it. I added this to the outer corner of my eye and blended into the crease. Then I took my trusty grey Avon eyeliner and tight lined my eyes. I prefer grey eye liner for the summer as it gives the effect of black without being as harsh. The I applied my Maybelline "Falsies Black Drama" mascara to my lashes taking real care to make sure they didn't clump (as my eyelashes tend to do).
I used my Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in the colour "Bashful" all over my lips, this creates a beautiful wash of colour with the added shine of a lip gloss. Also they smell like vanilla which is a win in my books!
Thats my spring face. I hope you like it, I am going outside now to enjoy the beautiful sunshine. Have a lovely day!
Lots of love
