Beauty|| Everyday Makeup Products - Spring 2015

Foundation - The foundation that I have been using lately is the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum. I can't explain how much I love this product as a base! I'd describe it as a medium coverage with a gel-like consistency and I think it does make your skin look  more radiant and perfected. It isn't the lightest form of foundation that you could go for, but I think that it works well for me at the moment and it blends really easily. The smell is also divine as its peachy so I find that particularly pleasant!

Concealer - Collection Lasting Perfection is probably the most hyped up concealer that I've ever known to be on YouTube and blogs. It is raved about so frequently that if you haven't heard of it already or become familiar with what it's like, you must have been living under a rock all your life. I tried it out about a year ago and I didn't like it much, but for the past few months, I've been loving it and it's been my go-to for covering up those pesky under eye bags! It blends well with my foundation and I think it just helps to make the skin under my eyes a little more natural like my original skin colour. I don't normally wear much makeup on a daily basis, but I would say this is classed as an 'essential'.

Powder - When I would like to mattify my skin to keep the shinyness and the oil at bay, I dust a small amount of the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder over my face, especially my t-zone area with my large face brush from Real Techniques and it stops you from looking so greasy, which is ideal for the warmer months. 



Blush - During the spring and summer, we all want to look healthy, rosy & glowing, right? In that case, you have to try out the Bourjois (yes, I'm mentioning this brand again) Little Round Pot Blush in '54 Rose Frisson'. It's one of the most beautiful shades of pink that I have ever owned and the colour pay off is excellent considering the price. I apply a little to the apples of my cheeks and it really does lift my face and make everything look a lot happier and rosier. I really do love it! 




Knowing me, I couldn't pick just one blush that I recommend/like for the spring, so I picked another one. It's the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in the shade '15 Seductive Pink'. This isn't just an ordinary blush. It's almost two tone as it has the main pinky/peachy shades and then there is some hints of purple too so when you swirl it all together you get the most gorgeous shade! It is also one of them blushes that makes you look more awake and cheerful which is really lovely for when the sun is shining outside.


Mascara - One of my new favourite eye products is the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. This is my all time favourite mascara and I genuinely believe it's the best one that I've found in a very long time. It's quite a thick wand and the consistency is pretty wet, but it really does the job. It makes your lashes so thick, long, black and voluminous. Your eyes stand out and your eyelashes are extended once using this product. It can be quite hard to get off, but I love it and I think it's the best mascara out there!


Eye shadow - I actually have no idea what this palette is called, but I know that you can find similar ones pretty much anywhere such as eBay or Amazon. Bh cosmetics apparently do some and I'm sure many other brands do too. It's one of those multi products which has all the colours you could possibly want when creating any look. I've been really loving mixing the purple shades together at the moment for more of a bold pop of colour on those sunnier days. If you would like a talk-through tutorial someday, let me know.


A basic quad that I use everyday is the Soap & Glory 'What's Nude' one. It has a matte white which you can use as a base or as a brow bone highlight, a matte dusty pink shade that I usually apply as a light layer after the white, then I use the darker colours either way around. You can either put the shimmery mauvey brown all over the lid and then add the matte brown into the crease or vice versa. I think all these colours go very well together & they can compliment any eye colour, particularly darker shades. 

Lipstick - Mac's lipstick in 'Bombshell' is the lipstick that I have been wearing most recently. It's a beautiful frost formula and the shade is a shimmery deeper pink, like its appearing in the tube. It will go with any outfit and it would be the sort of shade to compliment any skin tone. Although Mac lipsticks are quite expensive, I do think they are worth the price. They are smooth, non-drying and they have a stunning shade range.

Lipgloss - I'm sure many of you may know about this product already, but I'm going to be mentioning it anyway. As you are probably well aware, Tanya Burr is a well known Youtuber and Makeup Artist who has brought out her own beauty line and one of the much loved items are the lip glosses. I have the shade 'Picnic In The Park' and I absolutely adore it. The shade is a beautiful bubble gum pink that definitely makes your lips stand out. It isn't sticky or drying and it doesn't have a horrible taste either. They feel moisturising and creamy so you don't have to worry about getting chapped/dry skin! They are scented with vanilla, almost like freshly baked cupcakes with the typical vanilla frosting. You can choose from a variety of different shades, ranging from this, to a nice or a vampy, blood red. I can't recommend them highly enough.  


I have been using the Mac lipstick that I just mentioned and this  gloss together and they make the perfect pair, so do make sure to try that out! Above is the Mac lipstick on the left and the Tanya Burr lipgloss on the right. I have been wearing this combination quite a bit lately as the weather has it warmer so I will try and include some pictures soon!
