Spring Makeup

Every time another new season comes around, I make it my mission to switch up my makeup. Although I find myself lusting after new releases, I've decided to try and use up a lot of the products in my collection instead; opting for old favourites daily instead of the odd splurge. Here are my top Spring makeup picks: 

For my base, I've rekindled my love for the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray* which was kindly sent to me. Every year when the weather gets better I seem to get back into using this, as there's nothing quite like it when you want a long lasting base. I spritz it on before my foundation, then after too if I need it to be sealed in completely. I've been using this even before this blog even existed, so it's a firm favourite. 

Foundation is a harder one to choose as I've been loving my Charlotte Tilbury and Too Faced duo for a flawless finish, but I have to give a quick mention to Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation. It's one that I've been unsure about it as I go from loving it one day to hating it the other. It's temperamental and it relies on my skin feeling a little more prone to oiliness for it to work for me, so I feel like Spring and Summer are the perfect months to wear it! 

After using up all of my concealers, I went rifling through my collection to see if I had any that needed using up and I rediscovered my Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer in the process. I have the lighest shade and it's perfect for brightening and concealing - it never looks cakey, but instead makes my undereye area look super smooth. 

The Benefit Gold Rush Blusher* is the epitome of a Springtime blush, as it's coral in tone and perks up my skin in just one sweep. It adds just the right amount of colour to the cheeks without being too overpowering, making it an easy option for an everyday look. 

I feel like the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette* was made for this time of the year as it has an array of wearable shades that are warm in tone, but can be as full on or as subtle as you'd like. I think the fact that it smells of peaches is a plus too! You can see my full review of it here

Lastly, is the Charlotte Tilbury The Queen Lipstick* which is one of their new releases, a vivid pink hue that changed my opinion on these sorts of lipsticks. Don't get me wrong; for an everyday look I have been sticking to my The Duchess* offering, but this paired with a tan on a Spring evening would look amazing. It's a great alternative to the classic bold red and I'm all for it.
