Spring is here! Daffodils are blooming, baby lambs are baaing and the sun is starting to shine for that little bit longer in the evening. As with probably everyone, I like to give my makeup stash a shake up each time a new season rolls around but especially in spring. I love going from dark colours and full coverage to bright and airy bases. Bring on the sunshine!
I’ve come to the conclusion that I love it when I’m just that little bit more tanned and I have no idea why I don’t give myself bit more of a glow. So I feel like I might start using a gradual moisturiser more often. Anyway that’s a bit off topic. What made me think of this was when I used my Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser in Alaska the other day, I really liked the way it looked at the bit of extra colour it gave to my skin. I’m going to tan up and move this into my daily stash. It’s probably right on the cusp of how dewy I’m willing to go but I do like the light base this gives. Another glow giver that I like to bring out in the spring is the Pixi Glow Booster in Peach Glow. I don’t usually use it all over (bit too sheeny for me) but I like to put it on the tops of my cheekbones just for a bit of added something.
I don’t know why I try and fall in love with cream products every year, but each spring without fail I’ll add some sort of stick product into my daily makeup routine. So, here we are, with the Collection Speedy Blush in Cheeky now in my everyday stash. As stick products go I really like this one because it’s not greasy, not too firm and the right amount of creaminess. It’s also a great colour and I can build it up to the right amount of ‘flush’. I’ve shared my love for the Dior Addict Lipstick in Tout-Paris before loads of times, but there’s a reason why it’s one of my favourite products, especially in the spring. It’s a bright pink which goes on sheer so is amazing at jazzing up an everyday face. It’s also very moisturising and when the weather starts to get warmer this is just what I want. I can see myself getting to the end of this soon and it upsets me so much! Any recommendations for moisturising lipsticks that are pink and sheer would be much appreciated!
Last year I picked up the Fig Fiction Perfume from & Other Stories in the sale and instantly fell in love. To me it’s springtime in a bottle and I’m all about it. It’s not overly floral and really fresh. To me it just smells of the outdoors, like when you go on a long walk and smell of grass. It gives me such good memories of last year (bought it on a friends weekend in Oxford and every time I spray it it reminds me of Countryfile Live) and I’m obsessed.
