Spring inspired makeup

I absolutely love Spring it’s one of the most lovely times of the year. Although right now looking out the window right now it’s grey and it’s gloomy so perhaps this Spring look can brighten my spirits. When I think of spring I always think of pink tonnes and glowy skin so I’m going to take that as my inspiration. This is generally my go-to ‘daily’ look throughout Spring.

I’ve started to do my eye makeup first in an attempt to stop fallout onto my foundation. I’ve used the Poundland makeup gallery brow quad on my eyebrows to start with then I used a lil concealer on my eyelids and I’ve set it in place with the Rimmel stay matte (not Cruelty-free).

For my eye-makeup I’m using a new addition to my collection; The Naked 3. This palette is absolutely ~stunning~ I mean I’m generally using it daily. The shadows are really creamy, super pigmented and the shades are to die for. I Won’t go too much into this though because I’m thinking of doing an in-depth review (lemme know if you fancy it). Firstly, through the crease I’m using ‘Limit’ which is a nude pink as well as limit through my crease, I’m using the shade ‘Nooner’ which is a ‘light’ mauve shade, it looks so gorgeous through the crease; both shades are matte so they work really well through the crease. for my outer corners I’m going with factory this is a shimmery mauve similar to nooner but a little darker, I’ve gone with ‘liar’ on my lids with dust as my highlight. I’m absolutely in love with this palette and I’ll for sure be using this for the rest of the spring as well as the summer.


For mascara, I’m going with the Maybelline big shot mascara, This one isn’t cruelty-free but I’m waiting for it to run out ~ recommendations welcome ~ I’m just going to do a couple of coats of this and then I’m moving on to eyeliner, I’m using the Seventeen make your mark liquid liner and I’m just using this to draw a thin ‘wing’ (if there is such thing).


For my base makeup I’m using the body shop’s matte clay foundation and I’m blending that out with my Primark Oval blending brush, I’ve then gone with my trusty Seventeen concealers which I’ve blended out with my ring finger, I’ve then used my body shop contour quad to bronze using my ted baker blush brush, contour using my real techniques contour brush and then I’m going to highlight using my elf blush brush and finally I’m going to set everything with my elf powder brush and my Rimmel stay matte powder.



For my lipstick, I’ve used Tanya Burr’s lipgloss in Pink Fondant as I think a gloss looks much better than a matte when it comes to a nice glowy, spring look.

What’s your go-to spring make-up?.

  1. I usually switch out my black eyeliner for brown and start going nude. I also ditch the foundation for a light powder (since I love my summer freckles). Also, I skip to tinted lip balms with SPF in the summer. Right now I'm loving clarins black honey. Honestly, it works with almost every skintone.As for mascara, I'm using better than sex by too faced right now.Loved the article and might go get that Naked palette!


  2. Oooohh the Naked 3!! It's probably my dream palette. I'm DESPERATE to get my hands on it. Also, I'm considering getting one of the Tanya Burr lipglosses but I have very chapped lips. Do you think it would work? Great post! XOX
