My Streamlined Makeup Stash for Spring.


This Spring I really wanted to give myself the challenge of streamlining my makeup and housing it all in this handy little makeup organiser which I picked up off ASOS. I think I've done pretty well, there are still a few extras I'll reach for from time to time, however the main bits are in here, so let me give you a little tour...


 Base

Clinique Chubby Stick Contour: I've been loving this under my foundation. I apply it under my cheek bones, down the sides of the nose, and around the forehead. It works brilliantly to add a subtle, natural contoured look, and once your foundation is applied over the top it looks really blended and beautiful. 


Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation: I love this in the spring as it's very buildable and looks like skin. The coverage initially is light, which I love during the day. This is my go-to in the spring and summer. 


NARS Soft Matte Concealer: This is a new one for me but I've been loving it for around the face. I've had loads of redness around my nose and chin lately and this does a great job at covering. It doesn't cake either which I was really surprised at. 


L'Oreal Cushion Bronzer: Just like their cushion foundation, this is such a buildable, natural product. I'm loving all things cream at the moment so I've been getting on with this so well. It's not too orange, so it's lovely around the face to give you a bronze glow! 


Benefit Watts Up: This is such a staple in my collection, it's the best cream highlighter I've used by far. The shade is a gorgeous champagne which is so complimentary. It's blends in seamlessly to give you that lit from within look. 

Eyes
Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil:  Because I've been keeping things minimal on the eyes that means I have a little more time to spend on my brows. I've been using this pencil for a while and I love how easy and quick it is to apply. It's got a thin triangular nib which makes it really easy to create hair like strokes. 

Charlotte Tilbury Eyes Cream Shadow in Marie Antoinette: I'm all about cream eye shadows at the moment, and I love the formula of these CT ones. This shade is a gorgeous bronze which looks great on it's own blended all over the lids.

By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Bronze Moon: This is very similar to the CT shadow, but in stick form. This is probably even easier to apply and I love it along the lash line for some subtle definition. Definitly one to buy if you love a fuss free eye look which will last the whole day. 

I'm a big Clinique mascara fan and this one is amazing for giving you beautiful, defined lashes. It's the perfect mix of lengthening and volumising. 

Lips
Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Liner: This is pretty much the only lip liner I reach for so I had to keep it in my Spring stash. It's the perfect nude liner which creates such an even lip line. 

Charlotte Tilbity Miranda May: I love to add brighter colours to my collection when Spring rolls around and this colour is a gorgeous bright pinky coral. The formula is beautiful and I'm all about that bold lip in the warmer months! 

Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect: If I fancy a nude lip this the one I've been loving at the moment. It's a nudey pink matte shade which is the perfect grab and go shade. It's very creamy for a matte formula and it's not drying at all. 

NYX Stockholm Soft Matte Lip Cream: I love this for an everyday hint of pink. It's a lip cream so it's long lasting and dries down to a matte finish. The colour is, again, a nudy pink, but darker than Bitch Perfect and more noticeable on the lips. I love these for an affordable lip option. 

MAC Ruby Woo: I have to keep a red in my stash at all times, you never know when the occasion might strike. This is such a classic from MAC and a red I always gravitate towards. Although this is more drying than some other matte lipsticks, it is long lasting! 

MAC Brave: I love this shade for everyday, it's a lovely mauve pink. It's another matte formula, but I think the colour is very Spring appropriate and a nice transition shade. 

Benefit Pink Thrills They're Real Lip: This launch from Benefit is really interesting and I love the idea, although when it comes to applying it on the bottom lip you have to flip it round which is a bit odd and not what I'm used to. The colour of this is a lovely pink shade, with a darker pink on the top to subtly line the lips. I reach for this if I want a bit more something something on my lips. 

Glossier Balm Dot Com: Wheeen will Glossier ship the UK?!! I love this balm, it's very hydrating and a great multi purpose product to have around. I'm not so keen on the smell, but I've kind of got over that now. If you're in the US you can get hold of this a few different scents which I highly recommend checking out over the original. I love it though, it's a simple balm which does the job!
