Spring Make Up

Wednesday, 26 April 2017

As the weather warms up and with spring now in full force, I like to shake up the make up I use. If I’m being honest, I much prefer autumn / winter make up as I’m a fan of the more dark colours for both eyes and lips. However, it’s just too heavy for the warmer months, so it’s time to pull out the more pinky / peachy colours and the lighter make up, to suit the warmer weather.

I tend to wear this throughout the year for work, but during the sping / summer months, I reach for it a lot more. I find that a foundation can often be too heavy for the when it’s warm and so this is a better and lighter option. (However, as I was trying to find the link for this, I couldn't find the product on The Body Shop website so I'm worried it's being discontinued!)

Again, this is a product that I use all year round, but I switch to a darker shade in spring. Throughout the year, I use 001 Transparent, but I prefer this darker shade to add more colour to my skin during the spring / summer months.

I love this bronzer! I like to wear bronzer throughout the year, but I definitely tone it up during the spring for a more 'sun kissed' look. Hoola is definitely my favourite bronzer as it's so pigmented and long lasting, I definitely recommend this if you're looking for a more glowing look for this time of year.

This is such a lovely blusher which is a gorgeous pink shade, perfect for a fresh springtime look. The NARS blushers are super pigmented, which I wasn't aware of when I first used it - cue very rosy cheeks! 

This is my 'go to' eyeshadow palette for the spring / summer time. As a lot of the shades are a pink tone, I don't tend to use this palette much in the winter, however, it's perfect for this time of year. There are a range of shades in this palette so you can create many different, pretty eye looks at this time of year.

In the autumn / winter months, I like to wear a black liquid liner on my upper eye lid to add definition. However, I find this can be too heavy for the spring / summer months, so instead I prefer to use this brown eye kohl from MAC. It provides definition without being too heavy and so I reach for this most days.

What make up do you switch up in the spring? Let me know in the comments below.


  1. Great products. I need to go a shade darker with my matte poder, to get a little more colour on my face (even though I'm still in 'Winter Whiteness Mode'.
    I love eye pencils. So easy to use and very light to, compared with liquid liners :)

    1. Thank you! Yess definitely, that's what I love about eye pencils. Thanks for reading xx
