Spring Make Up Look | Tutorial

Well it's officially spring, and that means new make up looks and purchases - yay! Not that you ever need an excuse to purchase new beauty bits and bobs, but it's a handy one to sway parents, partners and friends to accept your need for more. I quickly put together a little make up look suitable for those warm spring days, so I hope you like it!

To start with, after cleansing, toning and moisturising, I used my Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation for the base. I then added a tiny bit of the Maybelline Dream Touch Lumi concealer to cover my dark circles. For the brows I just lightly filled them in with the Sleek Brow Kit, and that was that for the full base. I don't powder because I have naturally dry skin and I find it irritates it, so I've started leaving the powder out of my routine.

For the eyes I used the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette and dusted Burnout all over the lid. In the crease and outer v I used Trick, which I then brought under my lower lashline. Over the top of this, I used Illamasqua Medium Pencil in Torment to line my eyelid and brought it slightly under my lower lashes, then smudged this liner for a softer look. Finally a couple of coats of my Max Factor Masterpiece mascara and the eyes were done.

For the cheeks I used my trusty Benefit Benetint, and finished the look with a nice pop of MAC's Watch Me Simmer on my lips. Watch Me Simmer is discontinued, but I'm told that Maybelline's Color Sensational Vivid in Shocking Coral is a really good dupe, so pick that up :) It'll save you money in the long run!

I think this look is really light and springy, and I absolutely love how it turned out. Let me know what you think!
