My spring make up favourites...

Sunday, April 20, 2014

For me spring summer make up is all about easy & effortless. Sheer light coverage that doesn't make you feel caked in make up when its hot outside...well it is the UK so Ill settle for at least sunny outside. I know summer should be all about bronzers but being a (cough) fake redhead bronzed cheeks dont real suit me. Instead I opt for a cream blusher. My all time fav is this new No7 blush stick: Pop and Glow in Mango Sorbet. For powder I use Rimmel Stay Matte in peach glow all year round, its so affordable & the colour suits my skin tone perfectly.

Ive always been anti lip crayons until I saw Emma Stone advertising this Revlon matt orange shade on the tv advert and I knew I had to have it. I think it'll look great with a shimmery neutral eye using my all time favourite eyeshadow ever Stila Kitten and maybe a little bright orange in my hair too? I havent tried it yet but I cant wait to see the results of Coloursmash hair chalk in Tango Mango.

A new brand to me is Yves Rocher. Their volume vertige mascara is soooo good and my sister and I have become addicted to how long it makes our lashes look. Def a summer essential!
Last but not least Ive been loving pastel blue on my nails. Barry M in Blue Moon is a lovely sheer pearly blue that with a few coats is a strong cornflower blue colour.

What are your summer make up essentials? xx

    I've been going bare faced a lot recently, the nice weather has made me want to get out of the house, and not stay in for an extra 10 minutes to do my face.
