I've been all about cream products lately, and I think Spring is the perfect season to stow away all the powders, and have a little play around with dewy skin. That's not to say you can't achieve glowing skin with powders, you can, but for me I love the way cream formulas look and blend on the skin. My base so far in Spring has been, light, fresh, minimal and dewy, and here's what I use to achieve that.
| CHARLOTTE TILBURY WONDER GLOW |
You can't beat a glow inducing primer. They add such a nice, natural glow to the skin to give you that lit from within look. This one from CT is a beautiful golden shade, giving off a wonderful bronze light when applied under foundation. It's not the kind of primer that will make your makeup last a million years, or make your pores invisible, but if you want fresh, dewy looking skin, this would be great.
| CHARLOTTE TILBURY LIGHT WONDER FOUNDATION |
I love this in the warmer months, it feels very light on the skin but still offers a medium coverage which I think is perfect for everyday. The finish is very natural and you can see the glowy primer peeking through to create a lovely, flawless effect on the skin. I think this is a very Spring appropriate product!
| NARS SOFT MATTE CONCEALER |
I really love this concealer, it's matte yes, but not cakey or drying, it's pretty amazing really. The shade I have works perfectly around the face on any red areas. I also do use this under the eyes, if I set it with a little powder it doesn't cake on me. I may pick this up in a lighter shade so it brightens under the eyes, but for now it does a great job at correcting those dark circles which is a very tough job to do! The lasting power of this stuff is really great also.
| L'OREAL CUSHION BRONZE |
I love love love this stuff! I've mentioned it a couple of times but I can't stop using it. It creates such a lovely shadow to the skin, and if applied to the high points of the face it really does look like a natural tan. The formula is very creamy, super buildable and I love the way it blends into the skin, very seamless. You need a very small amount to start with, it's more pigmented then you may think.
| BOBBI BROWN CALYPSO CORAL POT ROUGE |
I crack this out every Spring and Summer, it's by far my favourite cream blush. The colour is a gorgeous coral, it looks stunning on slightly tanned skin to create a very fresh look. The formula is very blendable and easy to use. I alway pick up a duo fibre stippling brush for cream blushes, I find them the easiest to pick up the product with a blend.
