Hello everyone! I hope you are all well. The post today is about my favourite look of this month and my essentials for it. With pastels being a massive trend in Spring, I have really embraced the pastel lip and pastel cheek. I may be repeating myself from previous posts' so bare with me!
Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser
I use this as a primer for my face and apply it with my fingers. It makes your skin feel velvety smooth and allows your foundation to glide onto your face effortlessly which really gives that 'blurred look'
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation
I have chosen this foundation in Ivory as it is described to give an anti-fatigue effect and radiant glow which is perfect because I want that instant flawless look with a natural airbrush finish. The coverage is amazing (not heavy at all) and it really brightens your face and conceals any tiredness.
Real Techniques Buffing Brush
Of course, I would use this brush I am obsessed! It is such a quick and easy method of working the product into your face and just blends the foundation perfectly.
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer
I have some large and terrible spots at the moment so due to this concealers thick consistency it is perfect for covering them as well as redness. I also use this as a highlighter on my face so I apply it down my nose and on my cupid's bow. It just blends so perfectly into the skin.
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
This sponge is perfect to blend the under eye concealer due to its shape, there is literally no effort that goes into blending this as you just pat it into your face and gives a lovely look.
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
Dusting this powder on my t-zone ensures that I don't look shiny or sweaty in certain areas, I also dust it all over my face to set my concealer to ensure it stays on for the whole night.
Real Techniques Powder Brush
I love this powder brush as it applies the perfect amount of powder on my face and also evenly.
Of course after I had raved in my last post about it this had to be chosen for this look. It is a beautiful orchid colour (fitting perfectly with the colour of the year) and just looks stunning. I have no words. I just pat this on with my fingers but extremely quick as it can dries so easily.
Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder
I love this product so much and it has become a close favourite bronzer of mine. Firstly because it looks chocolate and smells chocolate but it also is a really great contour! It's a firm-pressed power that gives a really nice sunkissed look which blends flawlessly into your face and is so pigmented.
Real Technique Contour Brush
I am clueless on what brush to use when contouring so I go with the obvious brush.. Hopefully its right..
Sleek Brow Kit
I love this brow kit so much as it is an amazing dupe of Benefit's brow kit. It is just so easily and simple to use, I just fill in my eyebrows using the angled brush with the powder as it creates a really nice natural look.
Along Came Betty Eyeshadow Primer
I don't really remember the name of this but it is from the brand Along Came Betty which you can buy in UK Supermarkets. It was literally £1 and does actually keep my eyeshadow on for a long time!
Superdrug Eyelash Curler
I have finally faced my fear and started curling my eyelashes, I used be so so scared that I would rip out of eyelashes or rip off my eyelashes so I am happy that I have got over this now!
Maybelline 24hr Colour Tattoo in Permanent Taupe
Depending on the amount of time I have then I will either use this or my Naked 3 palette. I love this as it is so simple and easy just so swipe along your eyelid and gives a really nice neutral colour.
Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette
Of course, this has got to be in here. It is my joy and soul love! The shades are so beautiful, they are rose toned neutrals. I have already done a review on it you which you can check out here! I just love how many looks you can create from a really subtle pink to a smoky brown look. My favourites are Burnout, Nooner, Liar and Mugshot!
Max Factor False Last Effect Mascara
This is an all time favourite of mine, it honestly does create a false lash effect but in a really natural way which does not look clumpy or messy at all. It lasts for ages and never rubs off (don't you hate it when a mascara rubs all under your eyes!)
MAC Saint Germain Lipstick
I am so in love with these shade, I had mentioned it on my favourite briefly but I am just so so in love with this product. It is super pigmented, really bright, long lasting and so pretty! It is an adorable cool toned pastel pink/lilac which is so perfect for the Spring.
