As the mornings and nights are getting lighter and the clocks change next weekend, Spring is truly on it’s way. I can not wait for the warmer weather and lighter nights. You just can’t beat Spring/Summer. Not only does the weather change but so does my wardrobe and makeup collection, from turtle necks and a dark lip, to mom jeans and a pink lip. I thought I would share how to transition your makeup collection for this Spring.
In the winter I tend to opt for a full coverage and heavy foundation, that matches my pale skin. However, I prefer a more lightweight and glowy finish in the Spring/Summer. So therefore, I tend to reach foundations that leave me with this finish to the skin. A firm favourite of mine is the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation. It is a light weight, medium coverage foundation, that provides a dewy finish. I love this foundation and find it matches my pale skin perfectly, due to it’s vast shade range. I am sure this will be all I wear this Spring!
I am not really big of wearing a blush, it is not a product I have much of in my collection or even tend to buy. I just think it’s not a necessity for me, however in the Spring I like to have a touch of pink on my cheeks. A recent blush that has came into my collection is the MAC Satin Powder Blush in Sultry Sweet. It’s a gorgeous muted pink with specks of shimmer, that adds a subtle colour to the cheeks. It is going to be perfect for the Spring and I can’t wait to wear it more over the upcoming months!
I love an illuminating primer, it adds such a pretty glow to the skin and makes my cheeks glow so bright. I love this one from Collection in the shade Cool Rose, it was only £4.99 which is so cheap in comparison to the high end illuminating primers I own. I either wear this as a base before applying my foundation or mix it in with my foundation, to make it more dewy and glow even more on my skin. I love it!
Pink Shimmer Highlight
I could not live without highlighter, I wear it every single time I do my makeup and I just feel like it finishes any makeup look. Whether it’s a subtle highlight to the cheeks or an intense highlight, I am all for it. This Strobe and Glow Kit from MUA Luxe, contains both a cream and powder highlight, I tend to reach for the powder highlighter more which is a pink shimmer. It is not too intense but not too subtle, it adds such a gorgeous pink shimmer to my cheeks. I can’t wait to wear this more over the Spring months!
I am living for this lip combo at the moment from Huda Beauty. I received both the lip liner and liquid lipstick in 2 different Glossyboxs over the past 6 months. They are both a nude/pink tone colour, which work well both on their own as well as together. I love a nude lip for day to day wear, so I know I will be wearing this combo to death, especially in Spring!
