Spring makeup edit SS19

Now that Spring has well and truly sprung I’m changing up some of the products I use to get me well in the mood for the warmer weather. I put together a quick rundown of the products that I’ve been gravitating towards and those that scream spring to me.

First up is Glossier’s cloud paint in dusk. I’ve been loving this for well over a year now but for some reason it always reminds me of spring. It gives a nice bronzy pop on the cheeks, striking the balance nicely between the pink and orange hues. The fact that it’s a liquid makes its great for the hot weather and super quick to apply, just blend with your fingers and go!

Maybelline’s Snapscara has been a firm favourite of mine over the past few months, I love the way it gives long, curled, separated lashes that hold up all day. If I want a bit more volume I can layer it up and build on what it’s already given me showing how versatile it is and how I can take it from day to night with a couple more coats.

One of my favourite Spring/Summer products is L’oreal’s cushion bronzer. It gives that gorgeous, healthy glow that we’re all looking for in the warm weather without being too intense. On top of that, it’s super easy to use and doesn’t leave any harsh lines. I sweep it round the perimeters of my face and a little across my nose and cheeks as those are the places that tend to catch the sun, just makes everything look a little more natural and like you woke up like this (I won’t tell if you won’t).

Charlotte Tilbury’s Filmstar Bronze and Glow has been a staple of mine for nearly two years but I’ve been loving it recently for the warmer weather. The bronzer hits that perfect sweet spot between warm but not too warm meaning I can create shadows and contours while making sure I’ve got that healthy glow all at once. The highlighter ties it all together, it’s a gorgeous light gold colour, not too intense but you can build it up depending on how extra you’re feeling, definite win win.

I picked up this glitter in the colour nude from Primark on a whim a couple of weeks ago and I’m so happy I did. It gives an amazing shimmer on the eyes without being overpowering. Having said that it’s definitely noticeable so I’ve been able to successfully wear it both during the day and in the evening. The shade is quite neutral but has a gorgeous depth to it that really gives that extra something to your makeup. I’d definitely recommend picking it up and trying for yourself!

Finally, because we’re always looking for that bronzy glow when it time to get our legs out I had to mention the Tanologist tanning water, yes you read that right, tanning water. I know it’s not quite makeup but you’re going to want to hear me out on this one! It’s a quick tan that doesn’t ruin white sheets (thank god) and although it can be tricky to work with at first, once you get the hang of it you’ll wonder why you hadn’t tried it sooner. I’ve got the shade medium which gives a really lovely natural looking tan perfect for spring and summer.

So that rounds up my spring makeup edit, I hope this has given you a little bit of inspiration for spring and helped you prep for the warmer weather, lets pray it doesn’t slip away!
