With Spring on the way; I wanted to create a simple but fresh make-up look. I have always loved Spring, the flowers start to bloom, the dark nights start to go - I just find it a beautiful season and I can't wait to show you some upcoming posts all about Spring. Anyway, for spring I tend to go for a more fresh, natural look. With not too much eyeshadow but of course I can't part with the cat flicks. I like a strong highlight and in Spring you can get away with that. I also love to use a lighter shade for my brows to give them more of a natural silhouette. For todays look I did it around the Carli Bybel Bh Cosmetics Palette; which is just the perfect palette for me! So, Let's get started with the look!
To start off this whole look, I primed my skin with The Ordinary Primer, which is beautiful! It feels silky soft on the skin and makes any product you pop on top, look airbrushed and perfected. For foundation I used my new favourite the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in Shade 52 Vanilla. This foundation makes you look so radiant and healthy, I can't get enough of using it. I then concealed my under-eyes, chin, forehead and the sides of my nose with the Mac Select Cover-up. Then set my face with the Rimmel Match Perfection Loose Face Powder. I bronzed my face up with the Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel, then set the cream bronzer with Benefit's Hoola Bronzer to create this lovely but natural bronzed look. The blush I used was Benefit's Rockateur blush which is a lovely peachy colour; perfect for Spring. For the highlight I used the Carli Bybel Palette and took the two lightest highlight shades. These highlighters are so pigmented and blend out like a dream.
For my eyebrows I went with my usual routine the Colourpop Brow pomade in Dope Taupe, which is the perfect slightly lighter product for my brows. I then set them with the Eyeko brow gel, which you all know I am in love with.
For my eyes, I wanted quite a sheer but noticeable eye look. From the Carli Bybel palette, I firstly took the third shade on the top row and put this within my crease. This is to act as my transition shade. I then took the fourth shade on the same row and began to deepen the eye look slightly. Lastly, for my crease I used the fifth shade to further deepen the look, also putting this on my bottom lash line. For my lid I used the first shade on the second row, putting this on the lid, tear duck and brow bone. For my cat-eye I used my trusty Kat Von D Trooper Eyeliner. Then finished the eye-look with the Lancôme Hypnose and the Soap & Glory thick and fast mascara and gave my lashes a good couple of coats.
For my lip colour I used the Nyx Lingerie liquid lipstick in Lace Detail. Which is the prettiest light nude with a pinkish colour. I can't get enough of these liquid lipsticks, they last all day and aren't drying or uncomfortable at all.
