Getting My Makeup Ready For Spring

Although I'm not quite ready to transition my makeup and skincare routine to be more suited for Spring, I have been reaching for more warmer weather-related products and have been prepping my skin for the change in temperature too.  

I have noticed that I'm actually opting for a matte, long lasting base rather than my usually dewy option. Although I've been using the nourishing Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, I've been using the Nars Loose Powder to help minimise the appearance of pores and prolong my base wear. 

I've spoken about The Balm's Mary Lou Manizer many times on my blog, but surprisingly I've been using it in a different way lately to make it appear more subdued on my complexion. By using a fan brush, I can lightly dust it over the high points of my face, under the brow bone and over my cupids bow with ease. Similar, the Nars Copacabana has come out of hiding and I love to use for adding some serious glow to my face. 

As for eyes, I've started to invest in more cream eyeshadows and have started to bring out some of my favourites from over the years. Spring for me is all about that perfect balance between Winter and Summer makeup, keeping it long lasting, whilst super dewy. A cream eyeshadow can work as a great base for powder or can be easily applied for a quick smokey eye. The Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerise in Bette is the perfect brown-copper hue for an all over lid colour in the warmer months. 

The pinks and nudes seems to have stayed since Valentine's Day and I don't think they'll be going anywhere soon. I love a nourishing pick during Spring and already I've continued to reach for L'Oreal's Eva's Nude time and time again, so I'm sure that that will stay a firm favourite for the upcoming months. 

What are your favourite transitional makeup pieces for Spring?
