Happy Easter Sunday! I’m sat in the sun with my chocolate egg more ready than ever to get back in to blogging. I’ve taken a little break to refresh my blogging content whilst working on a little side project – all of which will be revealed soon.
To tie in with the whole “spring cleaning” topic, I’ve stripped back my makeup routine a lot. Anything heavy duty has been put to the back of the drawer as I’ve once again been opting for a more minimal and fresh looking face. If a product doesn’t give me that healthy glow then it hasn’t made its way to my face.
The most important asset to my Spring face which I’m surprised to only have discovered early this year is the Fresh Nude Foundation from The Body Shop. The clue is in the name with the word “fresh”, it truly brightens up my skin without feeling like I have an extra layer on my face. Unsurprisingly, I match with the lightest shade: 010 Chelsea Porcelain and pair it with the specially designed Fresh Nude Foundation Brush or bounce it in with a beauty blender.
In addition to this, I’ve been glowing up my cheeks with the Clarins Blush Prodige in Soft Peach and Colourpop’s Super Shock highlighter in Flexitarian, both of which somehow still look untouched. I haven’t delved in to my bronzer collection in the mornings with this perfect pair on the go, the Colourpop highlighter glides on like butter whilst the blusher adds a little pop of pink to my cheeks.
In terms of eyes, I’ve been sweeping the remains of the above cheek products across my eyelids giving an easy shine to my eyes on busy mornings then finishing them of with the Bobbi Brown Everything Mascara. I’m not blessed with naturally wispy lashes but with mascara paired with a warmed up eyelash curler, my lashes are set perfectly for the day.
To top the look of with lips I’ve surprisingly been choosing lipsticks/stix over matte liquid lipsticks. (what has my blogging break done to me?) I’ve been making my way through the Colourpop Lippie Stix in Oh Snap which is a mauve/pink toned nude shade also with a super creamy formula. I’ve fallen back in love with pink lippies!
I’d love to know if you’ve switched up your makeup or beauty products for Spring?
