Wearing makeup might be low down on your list at the moment, but every couple of days I've been making an effort to put on makeup and feel normal. Spring makeup for me is all about cream products and glow-inducing bases that will perk up my transitional skin (that's very temperamental!) and I've had a makeup bag shake up recently that I thought I'd share with you.
I've been trying to use my NYX Bare With Me Foundation up recently as I'm not relying on products for longevity, but instead I want a glowy base that'll look good on my currently quite dehydrated skin. I haven't really been powdering or adding concealer to my face as I've been keeping simple, so this base offers all that I want, a flawless finish with a natural look.
I've been relying on cream products as of late and the Milk Makeup Baked Bronzer* is definitely a go-to of mine as it's such a good colour for contouring, but also remains looking natural. At this time of the year I always go back to the Glossier Cloud Paints as they can be mixed together to create different shades and they offer quite the punch when it comes to pigment. If I want I tend to go for something a little more natural, I reach for the Bobbi Brown Rot Rouge Blusher as it's a more wearable tone that will stay put all day. For a glow on my cheeks, I have been using the Glossier Haloscope which I dug out and I'm so glad I did as it makes my skin look glowy and radiant when the sun hits it!
On my eyes, I've been keeping it simple, just opting for a slight wash of colour in the form of the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise, but mostly I've been keeping my lids bare with only a couple of layers of mascara. The Rimmel London Scandaleyes Mascara is my favourite for keeping my lashes looking long and full.
For my lips. I've been using the Glossier Balm Dot Com again, I'm not sure what it is, but my lips aren't looking the best right now and I find the birthday version is great for adding a little sheen to the lips to make them look healthy.
