Springtime Make Up Routine

So for today’s post I wanted to do something that pushes me out of my comfort zone a little bit and is a bit more fun than some of my more reflective blog posts as of late. Today’s post is going to be my springtime make up routine.

Here’s some of the products I’ve been using for my Springtime make up routine.

Base:

To start with I applied my base. I’ve tried a couple of different foundations this year, the NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop left me with dry patches of skin, though that could’ve been because I was experiencing a lot of stress at the time, then I tried the Revlon Colorstay but I found the coverage just wasn’t enough and I was applying two layers of it. Lastly, and thankfully I’ve found a foundation that works for me and that’s the e.l.f Flawless Finish Foundation and I absolutely love it. It gives just enough coverage and I’m really enjoying incorporating it as part of my springtime make up routine.

Next is the powder and for that I use a recent purchase which is Milani’s Conceal + Perfect Shine-Proof Powder in 01 Fair. I’m really enjoying this as it compliments the golden undertones in the e.lf foundation really beautifully.

I personally don’t use any setting spray as I’ve found that it just makes my skin look pore-y whenever I use it. So I just opt to go without.

For my blush I use the Revolution Ultra Blush Palette in Sugar & Spice *not pictured*. Some days I wear blush, some days I don’t. It just depends how I’m feeling.

For my highlight, I use the Illamasqua Beyond Powder Highlighter in Deity as I just love how it looks alongside my blush. You can read my review of this highlighter here.

The loreal air volume mega mascara has quickly become my all-time favourite mascara.

Eyes:

I know some people prefer to do their eyes before their foundation but I find it so much easier if I use the foundation as a base for my eyeshadow as it provides something for the eyeshadow to stick to. I know that’s what an eyeshadow primer is for, but I figure there’s nothing wrong with cutting corners in my make up routine to make it as simple and as quick to do as possible.

For my eyes, especially during Springtime I love to add a pop of colour to my face and for this I’ve been using the B.H Cosmetics Trendy In Tokyo palette, which is a gorgeous 16 pan eyeshadow palette with a range of mattes and shimmers and it’s just so darn pretty. I like to go for one colour on my lid, because I’m not the best at eyeshadow and don’t want to bother with all that cut-crease stuff, which I love the look of but can’t do very well. To make things interesting I usually pick a different colour to go on the bottom lid just to add that bit of colour to my day.

I then opt for my Barry M Eyeliner Pencil in white to add onto the bottom waterline in order to make my eyes look a bit bigger and add some definition to the look.

Then it’s time for the Rimmel London Black Waterproof eyeliner to put on my lid and depending on how I feel is how big the wing is.

I also use the Loreal Paris Air Volume Mega Mascara, I’ve only had this a week and I’m already loving how it lifts my lashes.

Lips:

Sometimes I go for a matte lip paint, but given the fact we need to wear masks lately I haven’t really been bothered too much to do my lips. If I do, I usually go for a Barry M Liquid Lip, these are my favourite by far as they are quick-drying, long-lasting and don’t dry your lips out. And they’re inexpensive too, which is great as it means I can collect them all.

And here’s the finished look:

I don’t usually upload selfies onto my blog, but oh well.

So, that’s it for my Springtime make up routine. I hope someone somewhere out there enjoyed reading this, but if not hey ho at least I enjoyed writing it and it changes up my content a little bit.

Until next time,

  3. I love the look. The colours go so well together! I am exactly the same, always do my base and finish with the eyes, even though one drop of the eye shadow can ruin it haha! Lovely make up 🙂

  4. I love BH Cosmetics eyeshadow palettes, they’re so pigmented and blendable! The Trendy in Tokyo palette is one I don’t have, I think I might have to pick it up after seeing your gorgeous look
