Fresh Faced Makeup

Hello everyone, it feels like forever since I posted a makeup routine. So today I thought I would do a Spring look. In the Spring and Summer time I don't like wearing to much makeup as, I want a fresh faced look not a full face of makeup look, so I generally keep it simple. Of course you can change this to fit how you like it too look, but this is just the current makeup I have been loving to wear recently.

I first start off with concealer, in the Spring and Summer I don't like wearing foundation or bb cream personally as it tends to wear off easier and it just feels heavy on my skin. So instead I like to just use concealer on any areas that I need it, so under my eyes and on blemishes. The concealer I'm using is the Maybelline Fit Me and to blend it out I use the Real Techniques 'Detailer Brush'.

To get rid of excess shine on my face and set my concealer in place, I then powder my skin using the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder. I apply this in my T-zone to get rid of oil but to keep my face still looking dewy and not overly powdery for that I use the Ecotools Powder Brush.

I will next move onto brows, I have really been into filling them in recently. Before filling them in I brush through them using a spooly. To fill them in I use the Natural Collection eye shadow Duo in 'Mocha/Latte' I take the dark brown shad and using my Ecotools 'Flat Liner' Brush, I fill them in to the thickness I want. I then brush though then again to get rid of excess product and to soften them up a bit. To keep them in place all day I use a clear mascara, this is the 17 clear definition mascara.

I don't tend to do a lot to my eyes in the S/S months. I usually grab a cream eye shadow, my favourite to use is the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in 'Barely Branded'. It really brightens up your eyes and I love the brightened eye look right now and it's really on trend!

Leading on from the brightened eyes I then like to highlight my inner corner of my eyes using the Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in 'Milk', this again really brightens you eyes and makes them appear more rounded.

Next I move onto my favourite bit: mascara. Here I am using the Clinique Optimal Impact Mascara. It is great at both lengthening and thickening.

I next line my waterline with this Rimmel Scandel Eyes in 'Nude' which really makes your eyes pop.

Finally I apply a lip product. Recently I have been loving nude pink lipsticks, I have been wearing The Mac lipstick in creme cup which I have reviewed here. Its a perfect pink shade and will go with every skin tone.

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed it.
