It finally starts to feel a bit more like spring here in the UK and with an holiday booked to go to Portugal in May, I am starting to grab a bit more of colour. For the past few winter months I have been slaying the nude lips. Colour is something my lips haven’t seen in a while (not even the famous autumn berry shades) and I am starting to miss it.
I am more than ready for a fresh, healthy, glowy face and bright lip. These are a few of the products I will be definitely be using on a regular basis to bring a bit of colour to my day.
The favourite palette from my collection is the ABH Modern Renaissance. It is beautiful, I love the eyeshadows and although I do grab it all year around, I find that during Spring and Summer time is when I use it the most. My favourite shade is Primavera, a beautiful gold shimmer that is perfect for an everyday look.
Hydration for me is key. I have dry skin (I have said this many times) and having a nice primer and foundation is a must. A combination that I know that will continue for the next following months and that probably is my favourite combination of all times is using the Smashbox Primerizer and the new NARS Natural Radiant Longwear foundation. It gives me the coverage I love (medium to full) and still feels comfortable and hydrating on the skin.
Most of my face products don’t change so much during Spring time apart from the blush or lips. I have been loving the Ofra Blush in Raisin and for lips, anything bright, red or coral is a great option.
My favourites are the MAC Amplified Vegas Volt, a very glossy hydrating coral lipstick, the MAC Lady Danger, a bright matte red lipstick and the Maybelline Craving Coral Matte lipstick, a bright orange red lipstick.
A fixing spray is also a must on hot days and I need to stock up on my favourite, the NYX Dewy Finish Fixing Spray and of course I can’t forget my ABH x Amrezy Highlighter. The one that will give me the dewiest look ever – you can read my review here.
