With the sunshine making a more stable appearance and the thermometer starting to creep up the heat scale, it’s time to share my final and third Spring Makeup Look. Switching it up a bit this time I’ve gone for a bright violet liner across the lash line to give a subtle pop of colour – perfect when going for drinks along the river with friends whilst the sun is beaming down on you. Not only does colour feature in this look, I’ve also switched up my based by combining a bronzing gel into my foundation to give a glow to my complexion. Teaming the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation with the new Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Gelée Bronzer* hitting shelves soon! I achieved a dewy finish with that hint of colour my skin has been missing. With the gorgeous Dior Glow Maximiser Light Boosting Primer* underneath is a match made in glowing heaven.

Bringing out the contours of my face was down to Tarte Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Bronzer as the matte finish works perfectly to fake those cheekbones! Getting my flush on was thanks to the NARS Virtual Domination Cheek Palette and I opted to then set everything in place with a light dusting of new fav, the Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact Powder in Vanille. Finally it was time to amp up the highlight with the Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight*, hello glowing skin! Face complete it was now time to finally get some colour onto the lids.

Instead of reaching for a coral toned blue (old Spring time fav), I went for a purple option thanks to the Laura Mercier Longwear Eye Pencil in Violet*. A Birchbox find this can be used either across the lash line like I did, blended out across the lid or along the lower lash line to bring a hint of colour to a look. Although the purple shade looks bright, smoked out it gives a soft more grungy feel. Lashes of mascara brought the eyes alive and I’ve been loving the Estée Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara* for va va voom lashes. Getting my lips ready was last and I simply swiped on some of the Clarins Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector* for a wash of colour packed with shine. Spring lip perfection!
