Praise the lord the weather is finally getting brighter although as I type this I am freezing, however the spring is here and things are getting brighter including our beauty picks. Spring is the time of year to dust off the heavy clothing and add a little colour to our skin. I love spring as it means bright nail polishes and sweet scented perfume. I have gathered up some new and some old favourites to get you ready for Spring time.
Starting off with adding some dewiness to the skin, I am loving Botanics Radiance Balm All Bright, this is a liquid highlighter but something that can be worn all over the face and not just applied to certain areas of the face. I usually apply a light layer under my foundation to give my overall look a dewy, healthy glowy finish . Such a nice product that is also meant to be a great dupe for Mac Strobe Cream for me I find myself comparing it to Origins Vita Zing in the way it leaves the skin looking without the tint release of course.
Sticking with complexion adding a new blush into your routine is a great way to step it up this spring my choice is Maxfactor Creme Puff Blushes these are lightweight blushes that add a dewy look to the cheek but add a nice pop of colour. These blushes are finely milled to give you a super natural radiant look. My fave colours are Alluring Rose & Nude Mauve.
Cream eye bases are my favourite thing when it comes to spring time. I love the Kiko Eyeshadow sticks. There are so easy to apply, last all day and the pigmentation is amazing. These have been compared to ByTerry Ombre Blackstar pencils, only a lot more affordable. If you are checking these out be sure to pick up shade 05, an amazing rosy gold bronze shade.
Lips are another thing I like to inject a little of colour into come Spring. I love a good pink lipstick at the best of times but come Spring I am pink and coral all the way. My top picks are Mac Viva Glam Miley Cyrus, Urban Decay Sheer Streak and if your on a budget Primark PS Love lipsticks, super affordable and really great quality.
Lastly the finishing touches. I love bringing some bright and pastel shades to my nails. I have chosen to include Essie Tart Deco a pastel peachy, orange shade and Barry Speedy Dry Polish In A Heartbeat. Of course then we need to smell good this spring. I usually reach for my more sweeter perfumes come spring and summer time and I love Marc Jacobs Honey, plus the bottle is so pretty.
So there are my Spring Beauty picks. What do you reach for in the Spring? Have you tried any of these products?
