SOPHIE'S MAKEUP

Beauty / Lifestyle / Interiors

The brief balmy days have frozen over, bringing winter back with sleet, hail and even snow making an appearance this month! I have to say, I adore the cosy, rainy days - especially for welcoming back comforts like hot drinks, lush baths and spiced porridge again, if only for a short while!
This month seems to have flown by, a mixture of long weekends and busy days speeding up time. Here's five things I've adored this month!

Now that we're well into spring, I'm opting for full on dewy skin - whether it's adding a little radiance to my base, or dusting on an illuminating powder over the high points. I have a few, fail-safe products and textures that assist my quest for glowing skin. Here's four different ways that I like to add radiance and light to my complexion!

Powdered pink, classic gold detailing - I just couldn't resist this dreamy bag! It has a high end feel about it - almost similar in style to the Chloe Drew, but unique enough to not be just a copy. And one that won't set you back anywhere near as much! This affordable pick is ideal for weddings, spring lunch dates - or to use as an everyday bag! It's definitely a little more mauve-powdered pink than I expected - it looks more blush on the site, but beautiful nonetheless!
Last weekend's mini heatwave has spurred me on to finally part with the last of the winter blusher hues and pull out a few of my favourite peach picks to add to my daily routine. Peach is such a flattering hue, it perks up tired skin giving a healthy flush to my make up - the ideal shade for spring!

First up is my newest blusher - Nars Deep Throat, the perfect spring hue. A gorgeous peach with a hint of shimmer, this complexion boosting blush is my new everyday, go-to pick. Like all Nars blushers that I've tried, it's saturated, has a luxe, buttery texture and blends seamlessly. One to pair with dewy skin, the peach tones help to lift and brighten for a peachy, perky look for spring!

The Hourglass blush in Diffused Heat is such a flattering pick! The combination of dreamy pink pigments with peach undertones and swirls of radiance boosting ambient lighting powder work to create a heavenly glow. It's finely milled texture glides effortlessly over the cheeks for a flawless, polished finish and leaves a beautiful soft focus to the skin. Divine!

Next up is an old favourite, Sleek Rose Gold. A gorgeous coral pink with a peach gold sheen, this beautiful blusher gives a wash of light and warmth to the complexion. Another buttery pick, this silky soft pick imparts an impressive glow - often radiant enough to forgo the highlighter (on the cheekbones at least!). 

The last pick in my spring line-up is the H&M Pure Radiance Powdered Blusher in Golden Peach. This affordable, deep pink/peach blush lives up to it's name - it's infused with shimmery, complexion enhancing pigments which perk up the skin with radiance and light. I usually opt for this on rainy spring days, it gives a gorgeous warm glow and looks so pretty paired with a champagne highlighter!

What are your favourite spring blushers?
March was abundant with great deals - offer codes and pretty picks galore! I took full advantage of quite a few - I spent my Ndulge points, picked up a few bits in the sales and had a little lush spree too!
It's safe to say that I'm planning on saving up my pennies from now on in April - no more impulse buys!
Here's what I picked up for the new season.
