The first thing I find an essential in spring is a dewy, glowing complexion. I normally go for a few illuminating products from day to day anyway, but when spring comes around, I up the glow a tiny bit more. A great base for this is the Vichy Idealia BB Cream - I have the lighter shade - this stuff packs a pretty great illuminating punch. Not too over the top or in your face, this is the perfect foundation to spring make up.
I’m a fan of cream blushes all year round to be honest, but when the sun starts coming out a bit more I leave the cream to powder formulas to the side for a bit and opt for wetter cream formulas. The Stila Convertible Colours are a fab example of this, but another great choice would be Max Factor’s Cream Blush. I like a bit of a highlight on the top of my cheekbones as well, and the Soap & Glory Glow All Out powder leaves a really nice, subtle glow to the higher points of the face.
For eyes, I tend to go a bit more delicate when spring rolls around. I try to veer away from the heavy black liner and go for sweet pastel colours. I love this lilac shadow from No 7 because the purple works well with my eye colour, but it’s also a great eye opening shade. Annoyingly the colour isn’t on the pot, but if you look for the lilac shade on a No 7 stand I’m sure it would be the same one.
Finally lips. To me spring means one thing in terms of bold lips. It’s time to whack out the hot pink again. I love bright pinks for spring, so the Revlon Colour Burst Matte Balm in Unapologetic is perfect. As for more day to day looks, I like a nice coral or pinky nude, the Revlon Colour Burst Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya has been my go to colour recently, but the Revlon Colour Burst Lacquer Balm in Demure is also nice for quick and easy application in spring.
What are you spring picks for this year? Remember to stay tuned for my spring nails post in a few days!

The lovely Nikki from Floral Sundays tagged me to do this aaaaaages ago, so I'm sorry that it took me so long! Her blog is fab so make sure you check it out! I thought for the month of March, I'd do something a bit different and do a TAG every Friday so you guys get a bit more of an insight into me! Hope you enjoy!
1.What makes you want to blog?I started blogging to give myself something to do that would fill up my spare time, but it's become a real passion of mine now and I do it because I like to think that a look I feature or a review I write will inspire someone.
2.Your Morning skin routine?I've been slacking a bit on the skincare front recently - naughty naughty - but when I can actually be bothered I stick to this routine.
3.Your favourite blogger?This is a difficult one because I have so many that I read but I think it would have to be Anna from Vivianna Does Make Up, mainly because I feel like her personality really comes through in her writing. I did a post on my favourite bloggers not long ago, you can find it here.
4. A beauty product you couldn’t live without?My Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream, it's a life saver.
5. Your favorite make-up brand (drugstore)?I think that one is a draw between Rimmel and Revlon. Love their stuff.
6. Your favourite make-up brand (High-end)?I'm not the best advocate of high end make up (student and that) but I think my Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette is amazing so I'll go with them.
7. What is your staple wardrobe item?Skinny Jeans and a statement necklace. You can't go wrong.
I tag everyone and anyone who wants to do this post, but make sure you comment so I can read it!
