Spring Makeup Staples

Spring Makeup Essentials
Days are getting longer, daffodils are filling the shops and people are ditching their coats for jackets. I think spring is on its way! Whenever the season starts to change I like to change my makeup look too, so I've ditched the purple lipsticks for pinks and the gold eyeshadows for nudes. Today I wanted to share with you what my Spring Makeup Staples are that I have been reaching out for.

Blusher | During winter I would reach out for my shimmery, deep pink shades for my cheeks but, recently I have been reaching out for my Dusty Natural Mineral Blush* in 'pink ladies'. This is a delicate shade of soft pink with a subtle light reflecting shimmer to give you a little bit of a glow. A little goes a long way and the results are beautiful, definitely a lovely subtle colour for all skin tones.

Bronzer | With the weather warming up a little it's nice to give your skin more of a healthy shape that'll look lovely when the sun shines! I like to use my Soap & Glory Solar Powder Bronzer and blend a little bit of it into my cheek bones to give my face to definition. It blends in so easily and even if you apply too much it is easily solved. This always shows up nicely in photos and will look perfect this summer too.

Eyeshadow | I've been wearing a lot of gold, shimmer shades over the festive season so since I can actually see some sunshine I have been making more use of my Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. I like to stick with the warm nude or pink shades as I always find those shades the most flattering in spring. I haven't used this palette in so long but it is definitely a one to splurge on if you love your pinks and nudes because the consistency is amazing.

Lips | I have slowly been starting to get more into wearing pink lip products and the ones I reach out for are the Revlon Colorburst Lip Crayons. I've always preferred lip crayons to lipsticks because they are a lot easier to apply and don't require much of your time, especially if you are on the go. These two glide on so easily and last such a long time to the point where I don't ever need to top up!

What are your spring makeup staples??

  1. I have to admit the pinks are slowly creeping out for me too! Even though is is so so hard to say goodbye to my plum shades. The blusher sounds perfect for my pale skin though, so think I'll be looking for that one to give a try!
    Have a fab day lovely x

  5. I love pulling for pinks & peaches in the Spring. I have the Soap & Glory Solar Power Bronzer but haven't tried it yet. I'll definitely be pulling it out this spring/summer. I need to pull my Naked 3 palette out again too. I'm trying to finish a pink blusher & didn't really think Naked 3 would compliment it, but actually I'm sure there must be at least one combination I can come up with that works! Xx
