Now that the weather in the UK has finally brighten up a little bit, I thought I would change my make up slightly. I've been wearing this look pretty much on the regular for the past week. It is light and not too heavy, perfect for the lovely warm weather.
I very rarely change up the base products I use. I am a bit of a prude about what products I use all over my face. I am loving the combination of Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue
(I am in the shade Ginger) and Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Coverage Concealer
. I have a review on the concealer here
but if you are looking for something with decent coverage, feels lightweight and has lasting power. Both of these work a treat.
Warming up my face, I went with my Laguna Bronzer
. It very finely milled, does not cake up on your face. The difference this makes is subtle yet effective there is a reason this is the best seller.
I was in a rush this particular morning and I wanted something fuss free on the lids. When I feel like this I tend to lean towards my cream shadows. I used my Benefit Creaseless Cream shadow
in the shade No Pressure!. It is long lasting, so will withstand any heat and does not feel heavy on the lids.
Most of the time I do opt for eyeliner but I thought I was running out of mine and the no eye liner looks keeps the look fresh and light which is what I wanted.
One step I would never miss out of a look is mascara. I had a search around my mascara stash and decided to give my Maybelline The Falsies mascara
in Ultra Black. I use to talk about this mascara a lot. My eyes look alert, fresh and my lashes are thick and long. As the saying does, it is an oldie but a goodie.
Cheeks and Lips
The aim of any spring look is to be glowy and fresh and I find cream blushes the best for this. One of the best blushes I have come across is from Illamasqua
and it is the in the shade Laid
. It is a nice bubble gum pink which blends in beautifully to the skin. It looks scary in the pan especially for an asian skintone but I found it to actually compliment the skin and gives a nice fresh finish.
To add to the glow I dab the Benefit Cosmetics Watts up highlighter
. I have owned this for a good couple of years and it never fails me. Easy to blend and lasts all day. It has subtle shimmers (not glitter) to it and has gold undertones to it as apposed to pink which I feel suits my skintone more.
For the lips, bright lips are a must at this time of year and I feel it is the perfect time to get out my Sleek Matte Me lip laquer in the shade Fandango purple
but in all honestly, go for a bright shade you are comfortable with.
Let me know what other looks you would like to see or any other make up monday tips you would find interesting and I will see what I can do.
