5 For Spring.

I adore spring, it's definitely my favourite season, I love it when the flowers bloom and all the shops start to bring in beautiful colours and textures for spring and summer. It's a happy season, and can I mention it's now light until about 7:30/8pm!!! Hooray! I wanted to share with you a few bits I've rotated into my Spring beauty routines, I have a couple of skincare and some makeup bits. I'm a huge fan of fresh, brightened skin, so these help to achieve that.


This is a big claim, BUT, I think this is my favourite EVER face mask! Yes, you heard me right. I had a sample of this from Sephora and I was gutted when it ran out. In the UK you can only pick this up from the fresh store in London - correct me if I'm wrong - so it took me a while to repurchase and part with the £50 or so price tag. As far as face masks go, this makes my skin feel very hydrated, toned, brightened and overall super nourished and clear. I have dry combo skin, so nothing too drastic. This just helps my skin to look its best. The smell is also lovely, I'm not normally a huge rose fan, but this is nice. It's a gel formula, infused with rose petals, it's very easy to apply and easy to rinse off as well! I leave this on for 10-15 minutes and I love the way my skin feels and looks afterwards. Please let me know if you've tried any other masks from fresh as I would love to know!

These skin, water, essence things have been all the range lately so I wanted to give one a try and see what the hype was about. I opted for this Kiehl's Iris essence and I really love it. It's for all skin types and claims to create a youthful, smoother and more radiant look to the skin. I was intrigued as to what benefits Iris would bring my skin as it's the main ingredient so I did a little research. It's apparently known for it's deeply nourishing an anti-aging properties, according to the Keihls website, so it's going to be fab for creating a brighter complexion. I'm all about the radiance so this is my current go-to. It says use three drops, and honestly you really don't need any more than that, it gives you a few seconds to pat it into the skin before it sinks in. I've been adoring it in the mornings to refresh my skin and give it a nice canvas for serums and moisturisers, it's definitely replaced the toner step in my routine.

I come back to this every time I want a quick, easy base which will even out my complexion and give me a natural, dewy finish. I haven't found a tinted moisture type of  product in a while which beats this. It has SPF30 which is a nice bonus, and it feels like nothing on the skin, exactly what I want when the weather starts to heat up. It's not a heavy coverage base by any means, it's light-medium, but you can build it if you want more coverage in certain areas of the skin.

I couldn't talk about fresh, dewy skin and not mention a highlighter, I mean, that would be criminal. This one from Becca ticks all the boxes for me and it's one of my favourite powder formulas. As you can see, it's a gorgeous peachy champagne shade which gives the skin such a luminous glow. You may swatch and think, daym, that's pigmented, but used with a light hand and blended out it can look more natural, believe it or not. Or, you can go all in, which is advised.

I'm all about bright, berry shades in the summer months, I'm over the whole nude lip trend! This lipstick from MAC is a beautiful, pinky raspberry shade which is very flattering and brightening has it has a cooler undertone. It's a cremesheen formula so it's not drying at all and feels super comfortable to apply and wear. Being a more creamy formula, it's not super long-lasting, however it does wear nicely throughout the day with a few top ups.
