Fresh and Glowing Spring Make Up

As my skin is going through a bit of a spotty muldoon stage at the moment, I wanted to give my skin a bit of a rest from full on make up and because of the increased daylight I am favouring a lighter, glowy, more "natural" fresh faced look. Also inspired by Tanya Burr's recent You Tube tutorial where she used bronzer as her eye shadow and a bright lip, here are my picks.
Kiko Hydra Pro Glow

This light moisturiser is a little bottle of everything you could possibly need for plumped, fresh, protected, hydrated and glowing skin. Containing Hyaluronic Acid, SPF 10 and something called ActiGlow - not only will you see the subtle glow this light weight cream leaves on your skin in a non greasy but silky texture, I swear that over the course of the day this cream gives me a hint of a tan, or maybe it's the glow. Whatever it is, at £20.90, this day moisturiser is your staple for glowing skin.
Make Up Forever Ultra HD Foundation

I've just been using a small amount of this medium coverage Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation where needed. This foundation is lovely. It's neither matt or glowing but has a natural coverage which can be applied light enough so your own skin still shows through or is buildable for a fuller coverage. This comes in a huge range of shades so I would recommend getting matched in store. I got mine in a larger Debenhams that stocked Make Up For Ever and I'm the shade Y315.
Nars Orgasm Blusher

I bought this because I felt I had to, as a Blogger. Nars famous blusher is a cult product and as I had never previously owned anything from Nars and I love blushers, I felt obliged to buy this.  And then for the longest time I regreted it. At £23 (Space NK) it's not cheap and up until recently I just felt this wasn't pigmented enough for me and basically brought nothing to the table. But now that I can see my make up better in the spring light, I can appreciate this peachy pink shade with subtle gold highlights which really adds a fresh flush to cheeks.
Tanya Burr Peachy Glow Cheek Palette

I highly rate the whole Tanya Burr range of cosmetics and this palette, at £8 from Superdrug, is great value for money, travel friendly and versatile. You get a large pan of Beach Bronzer - and it's this powder that I've been using as my eye shadow for a natural looking but defined all over wash of colour. In the palette is also Apricot Flush Blusher and Champagne Shimmer highlighter. Both of these are also pigmented, blend well and are in universally flattering shades.
Barry M Iced Bronze Strobing Cream

This is a great cream highlighter for day wear. A subtle champagne cream which gives the high points of my cheeks more of a healthy sheen rather than a lighthouse illuminating glow. This is also great as a highlighter on the brow bone. £4.49.
Rimmel Volume Shake Mascara

And to add volume to lashes without any clumping, I've been using the new Volume Shake from Rimmel. The tube has some sort of barrel inside, so you shake before each use and this ensures that the mascara stays at that nice, new consistency. Great for day wear and if you're looking for natural looking, full lashes. £8.99.
Clinique Long last Lipstick

This lipstick was my first high end buy and at £18.50, I hadn't spent that much before on a lipstick. And it was my first bright lipstick. We didn't become friends for a very long time. She intimidated me. But then I realised what a waste of money that would be if I never wore this shade - Runway Coral. And then we made friends. This shade is effort made when you can't be bothered with anything else. This shade looks great worn casually with jeans and t-shirt. This shade is your night out when you only want to wear an all black outfit. This shade is everything. And looks really great with the rest of this Spring fresh, glowing and natural make up.

  1. I have loved using strobing creams lately because it's a bit lighter and like you said more of a sheen! I need to try the Barry M one out though, sounds like something I would love!
