Spring Makeup Switch Up.

Spring Makeup
Spring is officially here in the North, who knows for how long though?? My makeup is constantly changing in line with the seasons and I thought I would show you what I have been reaching for recently.

My love for palettes has grown recently. Before I would just rely on a slick of mascara to get me through the day, but I am really enjoying experimenting with different shades and textures now. The Too Faced Natural Love palette gives me plenty of choice and despite my first review of it here, I am quite liking it now. Obviously, I’m just sticking to more naturals and nudes because it’s still a work day after all, plus I’m not that brave!

I love a lighter base in the warmer months. My skin tends to be quite oily and basically, I live by the ‘less is more’ mantra in Spring/Summer. Also, my skin has improved so much since I wrote this post on breakouts in your 30’s, so I finally feel confident enough again to wear this!

Bobbi Brown's Nude Finish Tinted Moisturiser is one of my favourites because it is light enough to not feel like I’m wearing anything but enough coverage to blur blemishes etc. I still like to use my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge to apply though. Then I like to usually apply setting powder afterwards, and then throughout the day when it’s needed.

Soap & Glory's Thick and Fast High Definition Mascara isn’t my favourite mascara by far, but it does what it says on the tin. It’s very pigmented which means quite a fast application. This is especially important if I have chosen those extra 10 minutes in bed. The only downside to this mascara is that it is pretty clumpy, so without proper eyelash priming (curler/brush) you are on to a losing game.

Soap & Glory's One Heck of a Blot is one of my favourite primers. It’s affordable and feels comfortable on the skin. I guess the texture and consistency is comparable to the Too Faced Hangover Primer but it's not as luxe, or as pleasant smelling for that matter. But what is most important is that it applies well under the majority of my foundations, CC creams and tinted moisturisers.

I tend to just wear bronzer through the winter months, I guess I just want a more dramatic look? Benefit’s Gold Rush is super subtle. When I first bought this product, I reviewed it as being too subtle, as in, non-existent, but clearly, I have come around. Some blushers are just too much in the warmer months, especially if you have had chance to catch the sun at some point.

And that’s it really. I am one for the more natural look in Spring, how about you?
