Everyday Spring Make Up

Recently I've been wearing the same make up look everyday, I simply haven't had the time to change it up. But I'm really liking the fresh spring look at the moment, so I will probably stick with it throughout the whole of spring! I don't know why in the photos my face looks cakey, it didn't in real life.

I always make sure to use primer so that my base stays on, I use MAC Prep & Prime Skin. It leaves my face feeling smooth and I don't know how my make up would work without it! Then I follow with foundation. At the moment, I'm tanned due to Bondi Sands so I'm using my Revlon ColorStay foundation in 180 Sand Beige. It is recognised as a dupe for MAC Studio Fix Fluid because they're both so thick! I love the way it makes my skin look. I recently bought NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla and I am loving popping it under my eyes, it brightens them so much! It does feel amazingly creamy so it is a dream to blend.

To set my base, I use Maybelline Matte Maker powder. It's not great, I'd probably like another powder but you don't really see many reviews on powder so I'm not sure what to buy. I then do my favourite step in my make up routine and that is bronzing and contouring! I used to be so scared of bronzing up my pale face, but now I've realised you can get it right with a light hand. I have been using the Clarins Aquatic Treasures Bronzer* which is absolutely beautiful and perfect for spring & summer. It just adds a nice bronzed glow to my face and makes me look a bit more alive! I also pop a bit of NYX Blush in Pinched onto my cheeks. I'm not a huge fan of blusher so I just add a tiny bit.

I fill in my brows with the HD Brows Palette in Foxy. I have the old version of the palette, I'm not a massive fan of it because it doesn't have a wax, so it makes my eyebrows look too powdery. It's good enough for the moment though. I then pop some of Benefit's Gimme Brow on top to tame them, my eyebrows are a bit wild at times. I haven't been doing eyeshadow recently as I haven't had time! So I've been popping on a few coats of Benefit's Roller Lash mascara.
