When spring time comes around I love going through my makeup and picking out bright and shimmery shades and starting to use them in my everyday routine.
I have been through my makeup collection and picked out my favourite spring products.
To start with, my favourite foundation right now is actually a recent discovery of mine and it is Rimmel Wake Me Up. It is a lovely foundation for everyday as it gives a natural glow to the skin which is great for spring time.This foundation also contains an spf 15 which is good for when the sun starts to come out.
Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation is available here for £8.99.
I think an under eye concealer is a must have product as it brightens up the complexion and just helps me look awake. My favourite one is L'Oreal Lumi Magique concealer. I have a blog post coming up on brightening concealers later in the week so keep a look out.
L'Oreal concealer is available here for £8.49.
A bronzer is a must have product for me. Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Bronzing powder has been a favourite of mine for just over a year now. I absolutely love it as it contains a small amount of shimmer so I just sweep it across my cheeks and it adds a gorgeous warm glow. I can't actually find this anywhere now however there is a loose powder version available apposed to a pressed.
Elizabeth Arden Pure Mineral Bronzing powder is available here for £25.
My favourite blush for the summer months is definitely Mac Well Dressed and it has been for a couple of years now. I absolutely adore it as it is a lovely pure pink colour with subtle shimmer and it looks beautiful when the sun shines on it. This blush just adds a natural, healthy rose colour to the cheeks. You can apply it lightly which just adds a beautiful sheen, or build it up to a lovely pink shade.
Mac Well Dressed blush is available here for £17.50.
Mac Cream Colour Base in Hush is my favourite highlighter. I much prefer a warm shade of highlighter compared to a cool, icy shade. This highlighter is a lovely warm peach colour which just adds a natural glow to the cheekbones.
Mac Cream Colour Base is available here for £14.50.
I have quite a lot of lipsticks and I found it hard to choose just one favourite, so I chose two! In the spring and summer, I enjoy wearing bright colours. My two favourites are Jemma Kidd Hi-Shine Glosstick in Holders and Dior Addict lipstick in Diorkiss.
Jemma Kidds Glosstick is a hybrid between a lipstick and a lip gloss and it is extremely moisturising and glossy. The colour is quite sheer but definitely buildable to create a gorgeous red lip. The colour looks almost shimmery as it contains light reflecting particles that are very flattering in creating fuller looking lips. The glosstick also contains an spf 15 which is great for protecting your lips in summer.
Jemma Kidd is available here for £13.
Dior Addict lipstick contains a reflecting gel which makes the lipstick amazing because it hydrates the lips and provides vibrant colour. The colour is build able to give a vibrant, long lasting pink. It also offers incredible shine. This lipstick is definitely one of my favourites for the spring and summer time because the colour is lovely and very flattering.
Dior Addict is available here for £24.
This seems quite a long post but I hope you enjoyed it!
