A Spring Beauty Round Up

Spring Makeup
It feels like the crisp leaves of Autumn and the magical feeling of Christmas is very far behind us now, which means that we're officially in the midst of Spring and the hotter months to come. With April being the typical month of Spring cleaning, I have rekindled the love for some of my old favourites as well as trialling some new finds, so now have a collection of my top picks to share.  

I'm sure you're sick and tired of me talking about the Nars Radiance Primer, but the radiance boosting formula is something that my skin has been craving over the past couple of weeks as the transitional season hasn't been kind to my complexion. I apply this to the high points of my face or wherever looks like it needs a pick me up. 

It says a lot when I go back to a foundation as my dehydrated, lacklustre skin now tends to only work well with several lightweight, buildable formulas and dewy finishes. Last Summer I was absolutely smitten with the L'Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation and after being without it for some time, I decided to repurchase because it delivers a luminous base which offers longevity and can disguise a wide range of blemishes. 

As for face powder, I have been reaching for the Bourjois Java Rice Powder lately, using it with my beauty blender to press slightly into the skin, keeping my complexion looking illuminated, whilst still being long lasting. 

I've actually started to opt for perky pink blushers over the contour kit at the moment. My dull skin has been craving colour and the Hourglass Strobe Lighting Blush Palette is the perfect pick as it has a wide range of hues. If that doesn't tickle your fancy, then the Becca Pamplemousse Split Pan is a handy alternative for those who want a quick pop of colour. 

From vibrant reds to subtle pinks, I've really embraced wearing lipstick this season. The Jouer Liquid Lipsticks* are great for those who want a long lasting option, whereas the L'Oreal Eva's Nude is one that I have been reaching for often as it's easy to wear with a variety of makeup looks. 

I've really started to take care of my nails this Spring; pampering and preening whenever I can and treating myself to an at-home manicure regularly. Essie's Not Just A Pretty Face and Ladylike have been two of my top picks as their neutral tones help to elongate the fingers and are great for everyday wear. 

What makeup have you been loving this Spring?
