As spring has sprung I thought I would share another makeup shakeup post with you! This is where I show a few of the beauty bits my face has been loving lately, so let's jump in.
Mineral powder foundation was always something I steered clear of as my skin tends to be more on the dryer side, however I've been trying it and I do like it I have to say. I've been using the Bare Minerals Original Foundation with a kabuki brush and I've been loving how natural and flawless my skin looks after. I would always make sure to prep the skin well before, so it doesn't cling to any dry patches, but it blends in seamlessly and they have a great shade range. If you've always been a bit put off by powder foundations as you think they'll end up looking cakey, I would say give it a go as you may be surprised.
Next for face is a blush, and the reason why I've been loving this is simply the fact that I thought I lost it and then I found it and now I'm back in love. The Balm Frat Boy Blush is a beautiful matte coral pink shade which adds a natural flush to the cheeks. I love the packaging of The Balm products and this one doesn't disappoint. The formula is super buttery and easy to blend on the cheeks, and it lasts all day.
Moving on the eyes I've been using the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon in Amber Haze a lot and I love how it compliments my hazel eyes. Charlotte has lots of different shades for different eye colours so make sure to check out the one for you! This one in particular is a beautiful bronze shade with an almost purple-y undertone which looks stunning and makes it a really unique shade. These are so creamy and blend well, but once they set they aren't going anywhere! I've also been back on the liner bandwagon. For a while I was just using a pencil and smudging it out, but I'm back using my Soap and Glory Supercat Liner and loving it. This is a fab liquid liner if you're on a budget, it's very black, doesn't smudge and lasts all day. The nib is very fine and easy to use too.
On the lips I've been loving the shade Grenadine from Clarins. This is part of their Joli Rouge range and it's such a gorgeous moisturising formula which sits so comfortably on the lips. The shade is a nice rosy pink with a slight brown feel to it, very on trend. I love these lipsticks and would definitely recommend this shade for everyday wear.
