I love the transition of seasonal makeup looks, from bold winter lips and thick lashes to fresh spring blush and dewy skin. It’s the perfect opportunity to raid your makeup drawer, discover old favourites and buy some new ones too!
For me, my daily makeup look doesn’t change considerably too much. My brow product, mascara, and liquid liner stay the same but to ‘Spring clean’ my makeup bag I tend to switch up my base products and add in some colour.
Before applying the makeup I love to use a primer as it means my skin is protected and also my makeup will look smoother and last longer, for this I used the Sleek Primer which is an ultimate dupe for the Benefit Porefessional!
For the actually makeup look itself I used my favourite BB Cream by Ginvera which gives light-medium coverage with a healthy dewy finish. I then used The Body Shop Lightening Touch under my eyes and along the tops of my cheek bones. This is my holy-grail brightening eye product as it has a pink tone that once blended into the skin leaves a naturally brightening finish. To set my base I powdered my face with a product I’ve used since my teens… the Rimmel Stay Matt Powder in Translucent. This is a finely milled compact powder that sets makeup without looking ‘cakey’.
After this I tend to contour and fill in my brows using the Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade in shade ‘Dark Brown’ with at small dense angled brush. To apply this product a little goes a long way so I take the tiniest amount of and use my hand as a palette creating no product waste.
My base makeup doesn’t really change when it comes to seasonal makeup transitions, it’s more about brightening the eyes and adding a pop of colour to the cheeks! There for on my eyes and pulled out The Body Shop Colour Crush peachy eye shadow in the shade ‘Be My Clementine’. I used this shade all over the base of the socket and then highlighted under my brows and the inner corners of my eye in the shade ‘Champagne’ to open up the eye and raise the brows.
Once I had applied my shadow I then used the L’Oreal Super Liner which is a thick black felt tip liquid liner that is super easy and quick to apply. I used this to create a small cat eye and then finished off the eyes with the Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara in the shade ‘black’.
To pull the look together and create a glowing Spring feel I added a peachy, pink pop of colour to the cheeks using The Body Shop All In One Cheek Colour in the shade ‘Macaroon’. I also sealed off the overall look with a deep peachy/pink berry lip using The Body Shop Colour Crush in the shade 320 ‘Berry In Love’.
