Spring is finally here and we are finally starting to see some sun here in London! (this means a lot to us) so I’d love to show you my everyday makeup products for this spring (or summer apparently according to the calendar).
My all time favourite has always been Estee Lauder’s Double wear foundation, but since my skin keeps changing- it’s no longer oily, but dry and oily at the same time, if you know what i mean? i know.. weird, but my second favourite is Lancome and their new Teint Idole Ultra Wear. This foundation is perfect for this time of year since it’s very light on the skin (you don’t feel cakey) but at the same time has a really good coverage. It brings a subtle natural shine to the face and is retouch free so it lasts for 24H, so it’s perfect for those who are on the go (like me) and have no time to be re-applying makeup.
Next up is my favourite blush! Nyx Coraline, it has a perfect corally-pinky tone to it which is perfect for olive skin tones (like myself) or even light skin tones, it creates a beautiful light blush adding a soft flush to the skin creating a natural look which is perfect to wear during the day.
Ive mentioned this before in my previous post but my go-to bronzer is Lancome Belle De Teint which creates a natural bronzy glow to the skin.I won’t mention too much about this product but you check it out in my previous post if you want to know more about this product.
I don’t use all three at once but depending on how dark my dark circles are I choose between the three, and mix two. These are really great to correct any blueish, brownish undertones and with the light concealer, I brighten the under eyes which creates a great finish!
My favourite part of my everyday makeup is choosing the right lipstick for my look. when I’m feeling bold I use The new Estee Lauder Pure Color Love in the shade 220, which is a beautiful pink with a matte finish. If i want to have a nude-like look I’d use Estee Lauder Pure color Envy in the shade 410 which has a light rose pink shade. Finally, if i want to go more less pink, i use Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in the shade First Time Matte, this has a brownish pumpkin shade which adds colour to your face and does not make you washed out! The struggle to find a nude shade that doesn’t make me look washed out is so hard! so this is a great alternative.
There’s not much to say with these two products but in order to complete the spring everyday look, I use Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme mascara which adds volume to my lashes, I can either add one coat which is enough or add more layers to have the ‘clump’ effect.
Finally, the brows. I have have bushy brows so there isn’t any need of any heavy brow products, so the Bobbi Brown Long-wear Brow pencil is great to just neaten up those fluffy things.
What’s you’re favourite makeup products you use for spring? let me know!
