The Spring Makeup Edit

Now I know a mere seven months ago the internet was a buzz with gurus declaring Autumn was their favourite season, yes the cosy layers and hot chocolate by the fire is appealing but I’ve gotta say, Spring wins the season war in my eyes. The longer nights, promise of pimms by the river alongside blossom beginning to grow on the trees, there’s nothing better! I also love the makeup switch up that occurs at this time of the year. Bring on the BB’s, highlighters and cream coloured bases, I love it!

If you’re looking for that perfect lightweight base that brings some serious glow, invest in the Burberry Skin Fresh Glow BB Cream. It’s like an illuminating cream that got mixed with a hydrating primer & foundation all in one. It screams Spring and you can see it in action here. My highly raved after Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer will mask those imperfections without masking the glow. Again it’s lightweight & moisturising to apply but packs a punch in the coverage department.

For those who are a tad fearful of cream blush, I urge you to try the Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Stick Face in Coral Glow. Applied with my Kevyn Aucoin Foundation Brush it doesn’t disturb any makeup underneath yet leaves a healthy and fresh pop of colour behind. Spring is also the perfect time to truly embrace Champagne Pop. If you haven’t picked one up yet or aren’t sure when to rock that golden glow, now is the time! My tip is to apply some to the top of your shoulders and chest to really catch the light ;)

For eyes I like to keep things fuss, free and simple. A wash of the Charlotte Tilbury Eye to Mesmerise Cream Eye Shadow in Norma Jean paired with lashings of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and you’re good to go! Now I just need to find a pair of shorts that fit, bust out some faux glow for my legs and grab myself a pimms in the sunshine! Bring on Spring :)
