The Spring Beauty Edit

March 28, 2015

With the weather being as beautiful as it has been these past couple of days it has got me thinking of Spring and the profucts that I will be bringing out for the warmer months, as a lot of products have either been too light or just not right for winter. So I thought today i'd share some products that i'll definitely be reaching for over the coming months.
When I think of Spring, I think of pretty flowers and warm sunny days but I alo think towards the beauty products that i'll be wearing. Often opting for lighter bases and prettier blush/lipstick shades, with less contouring and more matte eyeshadows, as I find a bronzey eye always works better in winter.

Starting off with the base that I know i'll be loving this Spring, The Body Shop All-in-One BB Cream (£12). I picked this up around Christmas time and even though I initially loved it, it was just too light for the winter months. It's a lovely BB cream and the coverage is actually really good for something as light as it is. I've got the lightest shade, which is a perfect match for my skin and I know i'll definitely get a lot of wear out of this product.

Onto bronzers and blushers, which I wear all year round but certain shades get more love during the warmer months especially blushers. Two picks that I know will get a lot of love are the new Max Factor 'Lovely Pink' Creme Puff Blush (£7.99) and the Tarte 'Peaceful' Amazonian Clay Blush (£25), which are bo lovely pink blushers that give a lovely pop of colour to the cheeks. For contouring I tend to go a little more subtle and The Body Shop Honey Bronzer (£13) is great for that as it is both subtle and buildable. If you're looking for a light contour then this is one to go for!

Onto the eyes and as I mentioned, I prefer a matte eye in the summer possibly eith a little shimmer but nothing like what I wear in the winter. A favourite of mine is the Makeup Revolution Essential Mattes 2 Palette* (£4), which is an all matte palette with mainly neutral tones so it's perfect for the Spring months and it's so affordable! Lastly is lips and a lipstick that I have been loving recently is MAC 'Lovelorn' Lipstick (£15.50), which I have raved about non stop. It is a lovely pretty pink, perfect for those who can't pull off a nude lip but still want to try it out. I'm gutted that i've lost this lipstick, praying to the lipstick gods that I will find it!

What products are you gravitating towards this Spring?

  6. I freaking love Lovelorn! It's one of my favorite lipsticks, hands down. I need to buy the Honey Bronzer too. I wish my Ulta sold the lightest shade, but they don't, and my Body Shop just went out of business. I almost cried when they did haha

    I definitely have lighter makeup in the spring, ditch the darker nail varnishes and lipsticks, and also tend to highlight a lot more so I look a bit more dewy!
