Good morning lovelies! ♡
Hope you are all having a great week! Today’s blog post is going to be a makeup look for the spring time, so very shimmery bright eyes and a lovely glowy base which is also perfect for my dry skin. I really hope you enjoy the post and let me know in the comments what your perfect spring makeup look is!
I have used the same eyebrow product for just over a year now so it has been featured in every makeup post I do, so I am going to just briefly say that I use the Benefit Browzings in the shade 1. I love this product so much, it works really well for my brows and it is just amazing!
For eyes I am going to use my very well loved christmas present the Anastasia Modern Renaissance palette. OMG this palette is just drop dead GORGEOUS and I am absouletly besotted with it. All the shades are so super pigmented and pretty, it is definitely one of my favourites. My only problem is thst the packaging is velvet super lovely but it gets stained so easily with makeup and things so it looks really dirty but that doesn’t affect the quality of the shadows.
The shades I used were: a mix of raw sienna and burnt orange in my crease, love letter blended from the end of my lid into my crease and buon fresco in my inner crease corner. Then on my lid I used the beautiful shimmery gold primavera and then vermeer in my inner corner.
I decided to make the look even more shimmery I would use a Colourpop shadow, I chose a lovely glittery pink called birthday cake it finished off the look perfectly.
Moving onto face makeup: I used the Miss Sporty insta glow primer mixed with the Clinique up-lighting liquid illuminator to give me a gorgeous glowy base. These help my foundation to sit well on my skin and for it to last all day.
For foundation, I used my Loreal True Match which I rebought in the auautmn and have fallen back in love with ever since. It is super glowy and I love the fact that Loreal does so so many different shades for every skin colour! I use the shade 1.R/1.c Rose Ivory, it is the lightest shade because I am so so pale but that’s okay. I blended it in with my very old Real Techniques sponge, I am going to be getting a new one very soon I promise.
I do understand how hard finding the right shade of foundation is. I have been made aware by a lovely company that have made a resource that compares over 700 foundations and helps you find the right shade and one for your skin type. Also it gives you tips on how to get the perfect base! Fancy checking it out? Link is here: https://www.reviews.com/foundation/
Concealer time, I use the Seventeen Stay Time concealer in the shade extra fair under my eyes and on any blemishes and redness that I wanted to cover up. I love this concealer and I am so super sad that Seventeen is closing down because it is a great one!
Powder……. Rimmel Clear Complexion it is a lovely powder and such great value for money. It sets everything in place and I tend to use my powder brush or my multi task brush by Real Techniques.
My favourite bit is highlighter, and my cousin got me the Sleek Solstice highlighter palette whcih I had wanted for the longest time and it really is worth the hype. I mix the two shades: equinox and hemisphere together to create a seriously blinding highlight. This kit is really great and it is jsuch a great drugstore one.
For mascara I used the Soap & Glory thick and fast one, it is very good, it helps my lashes get some curl and volume because I have very straight lashes so I need a great mascara to help them and this one does.
Last but not least is lips. I used a lipbalm just to prep them before and then actually for lips I used Mac Brave lipstick which is a beautiful pink perfect for spring!
This is the finished makeup look on my face:
