Spring Beauty Essentials

Now that the weather is gradually starting to get warmer and the days are starting to get brighter, I find my make up habits changing. During the colder months I prefer to use a more high coverage finish, but with sunshine starting to make an appearance I prefer a more glowing finish to my make up. These are my top 5 spring essentials that I am loving at the moment,

The Bourjois happy light foundation is my go to, everyday foundation. The coverage is buildable but I find one layer is enough coverage to even out my skintone and cover any blemishes. The Barry M get up and glow palette is the perfect size to chuck in your handbag and with a bronzer, a highlighter and three blushes you can't really go wrong. The bronzer is very warm toned with a subtle shimmer which I use to add some colour back into my face. The three blushes are a coral orange, a pale pink and bubblegum pink. They are all so pigmented and blend like an absolute dream, plus they last for hours without needing a touch up. 

Finally the highlighter is a champagne shade with a lot of shimmer that comes out very sheer on the skin. I prefer to use my Clinique stick sculpting highlight which is a gorgeous pink shimmer shade which is so easy to apply and blends out like an absolute dream. I pretty much apply this everywhere and it gives my skin an amazing glow. I finish my look with a wash of colour on the lips and I am obsessed with the Kat Von D liquid lipsticks at the moment. They are incredibly pigmented and I find the formula doesn't dry my lips out like many others do. I barely have to touch up throughout the day and the shade I use the most , Lolita is the most gorgeous chestnut rose.

I tend to sway more towards oil cleansers in the warmer months as I find gels slightly too thick and greasy on my skin. The Decleor micellar oil removes all traces of my make up and I only need to use the tiniest amount plus it leaves my skin baby soft and deeply moisturised. I have a sample size bottle which I top up and take with me whenever I travel as I don’t really need anything else. If you're after a new cleanser I would 1000% recommend checking out Decleor. 

What products are in your Spring essentials?
