As the weather has been amazing recently in the UK and we're finally in spring, I thought I'd do a post on my spring makeup essentials! Some of these products are new to my collection and some I've had forever! So here's my picks...
MAC Strobe Cream
I've recently been using this under my foundation as a base or mixed in with it to add a beautiful natural glow to the skin. It's perfect for spring/summer as it creates a dewy finish to any foundation without looking sweaty. I will be buying the full size of this soon!
MAC Face and Body Foundation
I have this shade a bit darker than my normal skin colour as I use it when I'm tanned - especially on holiday. Its a water based foundation and is so light weight on the skin so is perfect for summer! Its also waterproof yet still gives good coverage. My perfect summer foundation!
MUA Spring Break Eyeshadow Palette
I only picked up this palette today but the colours and pigmentation are amazing for just £4! The light blue shade (Bottom row, 4th in) is the perfect spring shade for adding a pop of colour to any look! I love using these shades to smoke out my lower lash line for a more wearable colourful look.
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Soft and Gentle
I don't have many highlighting products but this is definitely my favourite. Again doing the same as the Strobe Cream, this is perfect for a dewy glowing look. I apply this on the very top of my cheekbones with a fan brush and it gives the most beautiful radiant glow!
Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream - Petal
I also only picked this product up this morning but have been wearing it all day and loving it. I have a red from this Matte Me collection and think the formula is incredible. They apply as a lip cream or liquid lipstick and within a minute they are completely matte and will not budge. I love a matte lip and think that this colour is perfect for spring!
MAC Dreaming Dahlia
Tanned skin and coral lips is always the dream look for me during summer. I picked this lipstick up last year and I'm pretty sure it was from the 'A Fantasy of Flowers' MAC collection but don't quote me on that... There's so many good coral/orange lipsticks at the drugstore however this is my favourite coral shade that I own! A definite must for summer.
MAC Kelly Yum-Yum
This lipstick was from the Kelly Osborne collection at MAC and the colour to me just screams summer! I find it so hard to wear these bright pink lip colours during winter as I personally just don't think it looks right so I'll definitely be getting good use out of this in the upcoming months! MAC no longer sell this lipstick however it is almost identical to their shade 'Candy Yum Yum' so check it out!
That brings me to the end of my Spring Makeup Essentials! Are there any products you can recommend to me for spring? I will be doing a tutorial soon and will incorporate some of these products into it!
Hope you enjoyed,
