The Springtime Edit | What’s In My Makeup Bag

Hey Beauties! 

The way that I do my makeup has always been very inspired by the world around me, the colours, scents and the seasons. I find inspiration in nature, in flowers and sunsets and all sorts of things and as the seasons change so do my inspirations. Now that Spring is finally here, now that the sun is shining and flowers are blooming I have started to wear Spring inspired makeup on a day to day basis and I thought I would share what is in my makeup bag. 

I am loving a naturally lit from within complexion so I have been pairing my all time favourite Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer from L’oreal with my Gosh Mineral Powder. The primer gives a beautiful luminosity to my skin while the mineral powder provides coverage without hiding the glow. To bring a fresh pinch of colour to the cheeks I have been sticking with pink toned blushes like Benefit’s Hervana Boxed Blush, Clinique’s Cheek Pop in Ginger Pop and L’oreal Visible Lift Blur Blush in Soft Peach

For the eyes I have been using my NARS’ And God Created The Woman palette to create a soft bronze smoky eye with a classic wing and lots of lashes using my favourite mascara – Maybelline’s Lash Sensational. I have also been loving the Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade in Caramel to get the perfect arch in my bold brows.

For the lips – my favourite part – I have been pretty much addicted to a darker nude or mauvey lip so I have been loving the Essence lip liner in In The Nude and the Rimmel London Exaggerate Lip Liner in Eastend Snob either on their own or paired with the Gerard Cosmetics lipstick in Buttercup and the NARS Audacious lipstick in Anna. If I am feeling more whimsical, Maybelline’s Rebel Bloom lipstick in Peach Poppy has been my absolute favourite. 

I have been wearing a combination of these products on a daily basis but I do like to play with new products now and then. What is currently in your makeup bag?

    I'm glad the Spring is back! I love bold and pastel colours, so Spring and Summer are my favourite makeup wise. Like you, I'm also inspired with the season, and I still like dark colours come Fall and Winter, but they don't get me as excited as pinks, corals, turquoise and so!MsBubu

      There's just something and spring that has an incredible energy to it and everything is so exciting. I am so excited for the bright lip colours!
