Now that Spring has finally arrived, I have rotated some of my makeup and put my most Spring-appropriate products in the top drawers of my Muji storage. Today I want to share the eye, cheek, lip and nail products that I will be getting most use out of over the coming months. I tend to go lighter with my base and introduce more pinks for Spring.
Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyehadow Palette: I love the range of shadows in this palette and the left side of the palette is perfect for Spring days. Too Faced shadows are beautiful in terms of texture and pigmentation and this palette is no exception. It just screams Spring and Summer to me!
Tarte Tartelette in Bloom Eyeshadow Palette: I bought this in Sephora last year and apart from using it over the summer, it's been pretty much neglected in my collection so this is the perfect time to become re-acquainted. I love that there are some shimmers in this palette, mixed with mainly mattes because I am a matte shadow lover at heart. The nudes and taupes are perfect for everyday wear and, again, the texture of the shadows is beautiful.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit - Surreal Light: My obsession with this palette is still strong six months after purchasing it! The surreal light powder adds some luminosity to my skin and blurs the visibility of the pores in my cheek area and the blushes are just perfect for a fresh Spring look. It is expensive but I don't regret a single cent of this purchase.
Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator Palette: I love this limited edition palette because it contains all 3 shades of Laura Geller Gelato Swirl Illuminators - I already knew that I loved Peach Glow and am delighted to now be able to use Gilded Honey & Ballerina. The quality of the products in this palette are just as good as the full size one that I have so I would highly recommend buying this if you don't have many highlighters but want to add a few shades to your collection without breaking the bank as it has a value of £62 and is priced at £22, I will be using all 3 shades over the coming Spring months and on into Summer.
Charlotte Tilbury Liv It Up: I love a pink lip in Spring and Liv It Up fits the bill perfectly. It is the perfect rosebud pink shade, which I love and another pink that is slightly lighter in tone is Charlotte Tilbury Valentine, which is more of a pinky nude. Both of these are from the K.I.S.S.I.N.G range and they make my lips look plump and this formula is extremely comfortable to wear due to how creamy they are, without being too slippy.
Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet No. 21 Primrose: This is the only liquid lipstick that I'll be wearing this Spring because, again, it is a really pretty pink shade and it is the only Spring like liquid lipstick that I own! I love how comfortable this is on my lips - it doesn't dry my lips out or accentuate any lines on my lips. It's an all round winner for me.
NYX Butter Gloss Creme Brulee: At the other end of the price scale is this fab gloss from NYX - this gloss is a pinky nude colour, isn't sticky, is lightweight in texture and applies very smoothly. I need to buy more of these glosses because the formula is great and I have a really soft spot for glosses.
Essie Fiji: I'm delighted to put the berry and wine shades back in the drawer and embrace the pastel shades. This is one of my favourite pastel pinks that verges on pinky-white. It makes me think of Cherry Blossom and nothing screams Spring more than Cherry Blossom!
Essie Gel Couture Perfect Posture: I love the Essie gel couture range because they are so long-lasting on the nails, are easy to apply without streaking and have a gloss finish. This baby blue shade is really beautiful and I am loving it at the moment - especially when I am fake tanned.
