Spring Make-Up

Every now and then I love changing my makeup up to go with the seasons. My base nearly always stays the same, it's usually my eyes and lips that I focus on when creating a new makeup look. So today I thought I would share with you guys my easy, go to makeup look for spring! Pretty much all of these products you will have seen in my Cruelty Free Beauty Haul, bar the odd one or two that I've recently purchased (don't worry, still all cruelty free!)

NARS SHEER GLOW FOUNDATION - MONT BLANC | I'm really loving this foundation at the minute. After wanting it for months I finally took the plunge and invested in a pot and it definitely hasn't disappointed! It doesn't provide entirely full coverage, which is something I need right now as my skin is in utter meltdown mode, but I find that it's easy to build up and it has such a nice finish on the skin. Whenever I use this foundation, my makeup lasts much longer and I find that I get less dry patches on my cheeks throughout the day! 

COLLECTION LASTING PERFECTION CONCEALER - 1 FAIR | You all already know how brilliant this concealer is. When my skin was much much better I literally just used to wear this and powder and it kept my makeup looking near perfect all day. It covers everything I need it to effortlessly and I don't think I'll ever go a day without this!

SOAP AND GLORY ONE HECK OF A BLOT POWDER - TRANSLUCENT I've been testing this powder for a few weeks now and every time I use it I can't get over how good it is. I have combination skin and throughout the day if I notice I'm quite shiny around my t-zone, this product saves the day. It only takes a tiny bit to completely get rid of any shine and also it covers and conceals like a dream! The only annoying thing is that for a powder, it's quite expensive at £12!

SLEEK CONTOURING AND BLUSH PALETTE - LIGHT 373 | I never really do much contouring, mainly because I don't know how, but I definitely wanted to add some blush and highlight to this look! My favourite thing about this palette is the highlight. It's absolutely gorgeous and you barely need any to get a lovely glow. I applied a little bit of this and the blush to my cheeks to brighten my face up for spring!

SLEEK I-DIVINE EYESHADOW PALETTE - VINTAGE ROMANCE 141 | I bought this palette because I want to try out some pink/purple eye shadow looks, but after trying out those colours the other day, I am not a fan. Instead of looking subtle they looked quite tacky and bright so I decided to ignore the pinks and focus on the golds from this palette! I took the brightest gold shade *the one next to the silver* and applied this all over my lid. These eyeshadows are really easy to apply and the pigment is actually pretty good. I then took the gold shade next to that one and applied this in my crease. These two colours work really well together and because they're quite similar they're really easy to blend in and build up. I was actually quite surprised at how nice these looked because after constantly using my Urban Decay palette I wasn't expecting to be amazed! 

SOAP AND GLORY SUPERCAT EXTREME EYELINER PEN - CARBON BLACK | If I'm going out for a meal or a day out with friends, I HAVE to wear eyeliner. If I'm doing my makeup properly, I don't feel like I've completed my look unless I've done my eyeliner so of course I had to include it in this look. Ever since I made the switch from gel eyeliner to pens, my eyeliner days have become so much easier. This pen is perfect for doing thin or thick lines and the colour is so intense there's no need to keep going over the same spot! 

TOO FACED BETTER THAN SEX MASCARA | I've heard so many people talking about how brilliant this mascara is so the other day I finally decided to purchase one for myself! This was a hefty price tag at £19, so it's definitely not something that I can see myself purchasing on a regular basis, but oh my goodness I do love this mascara! It took only one coat to make my lashes look insanely long and voluminous and they don't clump at all! The only thing that bothers me is that the brush is so thick that it's very easy to get mascara all over your eyelids if you're not careful! 

COLLECTION EYE BROW KIT - BLONDE | I don't do much to my eyebrows, again it's mainly because I don't know how to do them properly, but I do like to fill them in with some colour and this eye brow kit is really good. This is my first ever eyebrow product and for the price, it really is brilliant! I dab the brush that comes with the product twice in the lightest shade and once in the middle shade and then brush this through my eyebrows. I then take the setting gel that also comes with it and take this through my eyebrows once to keep them in place!

NYX LIQUID SUEDE LIPSTICK - TEA & COOKIES | Given that spring is all about the pinks and bright colours I knew I needed to include a pink lip. I did a whole post recently about these NYX liquid lipsticks so you can check that out HERE, but I'll just say that these are my new favourite lip products! The one thing I'm not crazy on is that I think they apply brighter than they swatch, so be careful with that. This doesn't look very bright in the pictures but trust me, it's definitely not a natural pink. I still really like this colour though and I think it adds something a bit more daring to this makeup look! 

This was so easy to do and it didn't take long at all. I really love using all of the products mentioned here and if you have any recommendations of new products I can try out then let me know in the comments!
