My Current Spring Makeup

I'v been wearing this look a lot recently, so I thought I would put up a blog post up on it. I love that it is really quick and easy to achieve, as I have barely any time to get my makeup on before work these days! I get the train into London at 5.30am and with a secret owl identity, I'm pretty nocturnal meaning I probably get about 5 hours sleep in total! It's really bright, fresh, and would look lovely in the summer too. I know I will be getting a lot of wear out of it!

Base
-To prep my skin I used my Kosé serum, eye cream and moisturiser from their Cell Renewal Range, available exclusively at Blow ltd. 
- I used MAC Prep & Prime as a base underneath my foundation to create a smooth, dewy base.
- For foundation I used Dior Star foundation, and buffed that in with my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush.
- I then applied my Soap & Glory two shade concealer, starting with the peach shade, followed by the  yellow shade to brighten applying that directly on top.
- I then went in with my Bobbi Brown bronzer in Golden 2 and applied that underneath my cheekbones, and then dusted it lightly all over to give me an all over golden bronze glow.
- For blusher I used my trusty Benefit Coralista blush, and popped that just on the outer area of the apples of my cheeks. I used my Zoeva luxe sheer cheek brush to apply both my bronzer and blusher.


Eyes
- I used my Zoeva crease brush to apply MAC all that glitters all over my eyelid, and up to my socket, and blended out the edges with a clean fluffy brush.
- I then curled my lashes and applied Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara (apparently a favourite of Kim Kardashians!) to the top lashes only.
- I then filled in my brows with Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade in Blonde, and used the Zoeva angled brush to apply it.


Lips
- I lined my lips with Studio 10 lip pencil, just on the outside.
- For lipstick I used my Tom Ford lipstick in Spanish Pink.


I hope you like the look, it gives you a really dewy flawless look, but still shows elements of your skin to give you a more natural look. I love the combo of the blusher, the eyes and the lips as they all tie in together for a pretty spring time look. Again, please do let me know if you like this look and would love to see this in a tutorial, I am editing it at the moment but I'm having doubts once again!

Hope you all have a lovely day! xo.
