Spring 2018 Makeup Picks

Hello beauties, now its officially spring (would someone please tell that to the weather) I thought I’d share with you a few of my favourite items that are perfect for the season change and that I will be using as the weather gets brighter and warmer.

I’m going to be doing my seasonal picks instead of monthly favourites from now on.

Spring to me is all about fresh looking dewy skin with a lighter coverage, using brighter colours on my lids and a natural looking glossy lip.

Too Faced Hangover Primer

I recently got a sample of the Hangover Primer from Too Faced when I bought their Born This Way Foundation (review to follow). I love this primer so much that I decided to pick up a full sized version and I will be reviewing this next week!. This in enriched with coconut water and probiotic ingredients to give a fresh ‘awake’ look and feel to the face. I’ve been loving how it’s been pepping up my skin making it look less dull and providing a smooth even base for my foundation. It also makes my dewy finish foundations last all day.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Breathable Foundation

If you follow me on Instagram then you may have seen me raving about this Rimmel Breathable Foundation, it may be a medium coverage foundation but the finish is so flawless and beautiful. Perfect for when you want to wear less makeup as it gets warmer. I love the large doe foot applicator, it’s different but makes application so easy. Seriously if you like a natural looking foundation pick this up it’s stunning and I’ve been wearing this day to day when I want a effortless look.

Benefit Dandelion Twinkle Powder Highlight

I have a full review post of this highlighter and blush here. I love these cute box O’ powders from Benefit, their packaging is always so pretty. This highlighter is a gorgeous light pink shade and has finely milled pigments to give a soft natural looking glow. I like to use this with a setting spray on days I want more of a popping glow!.

Benefit GALifornia Blush

The GALifornia blush has been my favourite and most used blush since I purchased it in January, this is a very warm toned pink and puts the perfect amount of colour on your cheeks. It has a very creamy formula so it blends like a dream and goes perfectly with the highlighter shown above.

I have a ‘free gift when you spend’ code below for Benefit UK. I’ll include the image at the bottom if you’re interested!

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Lip Paint Lacquer

I recently picked up a few shades of the Infallible lip paints after reading a few good reviews and having a swatch session in Boots (my arm was covered). I will be doing a review on the colours I picked shortly. I love the formula of the Lacquers, they apply really smoothly and have so much pigment to them. The shade ‘gone with the nude’ is the perfect terracotta nude which perfect for wearing on its own in a natural look or pairing with a bold colourful eye. Expect to see more glossy lips in future makeup looks.

L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Lipstick

I used this lipstick in my recent spring makeup look collaboration, you can find that here. The shade ‘pink fever’ is a very pretty pink shade with a gloss finish. I love how creamy the formula is making it very moisturising on the lips. The Color Riche range is my favourite for a drugstore lipstick, definitely check those out for good quality, colour pay off and a bargain price!

The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Eu De Toilette

The Japanese Cherry Blossom range from The Body Shop is my ultimate favourite for spring, if you have a Body Shop store near you please go in and smell it and you will understand what I mean when I say it literally smells like spring, fruity and floral but not overpowering. It lasts all day and the packaging is so pretty on a dressing table. They also sell a shower gel and body butter in this scent which I use together.

The Body Shop Vitamin C

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find a link to this product online but you can still find this in stores. I have been incorporating quite a few products with Vitamin C into my skincare routine and I have noticed just how much brighter my dull, scarred skin has become. This Vitamin C Energising Face mist can be used as skincare (misting onto face after moisturiser for added hydration) or even used as a brightening setting spray on top of your makeup. I picked this up for £6 in the sale and I’m so glad I did!

Here is the Benefit offer code-
