Make Up: The Spring Edit

I love looking at which items people are using at the moment, especially as the weather changes! So here is all the bits I have been using this spring, my typical face all in one post :)

For primer I am still using the YSL Blur Primer exclusively. I really love the feel of this, it just covers any texture or any imperfections. For foundation I am so close to finishing my Nars Sheer Glow, I am the shade "Gobi" it is the perfect yellow base for me, and I love the finish of this. Up to a month ago this was the best foundation I have ever used, but one is now beating that - but more on that one later.

For concealer I am still using the Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer - did you know if you remove the valve from this you can get a good 2-3 weeks worth of product? Worth doing if you think you are done. I have been setting my base using the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powder in Diffused Light.

Bronzer and Blush has been the Benefit Cheek Parade Palette I have been loving using a mix of Hoola and Hoola Lite, it is so perfect for my pale skin. I have also given into the Galifornia hype. It really is perfect on, so so beautiful. I have also been loving the Becca Blush in Flower Child - it is the perfect pinky spring colour. 

Highlighter! My favourite bits. I have been obsessed with the CoverFX drops in Moonlight, they really are utter perfection - worth the effort of blending them into the high points of your face. I love it. For on the days I want something a bit different I reach for MACs Beaming Blush... this is quickly becoming my most used highlighter - so beautiful! 

I have been opting for a more subtle eye recently, so going for an easy eye look. As much as I think the Clinique Eye Pop In Willow Pop doesn't have the best pigmentation when applying with a brush 0 I must admit I have been using it a lot. Either this or the Urban Decay Basics palette (I use this for my brows too) 

For Eyeliner it is always my trusty Seventeen Wet Look Liner. I love it, nothing else compares. For mascara I am never too fussy, but I have been using the Lancome Grandiose Extreme Mascara - its nice, but not worth the high price tag! 

A girl always needs a nude lipstick, and for me right now that nude is Charlotte Tilbury Very Victoria - it is so nice, the perfect rosy tone. Beautiful. I have also been reaching for a more pink lip, MAC Please Me is the perfect pink for me - not overly pink.. 

For setting it all I am still using the Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day.
