spring makeup
During Spring I love wearing light, shimmery and pastel shades on my eyes. Lilacs and cornflower blues look so pretty lightly blended into the lower lash line and a wash of cream eyeshadow over the lids is a really simple and pretty look for spring. These are my current favourite spring eyeshadows:

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Eternal Gold & Pink Gold: These long lasting cream eyeshadows blend easily and seamlessly onto the eyes. Pink Gold is a beautiful rose shade and Eternal Gold a shimmery light gold that when swept over the eye with a matte pink lip like Revlon Sultry Samba gives an effortless spring look. See them swatched here.

Nars Eyeshadow Duo in Violetta: This dreamy Nars duo consists of smoky lavender and metallic lilac shades. The metallic lilac is so pretty swept all over the eyes and the matte shade is perfect as a crease colour or to give definition, smudged under the lower lashes. See swatches here.

L'oreal Color Riche L'Ombre Pure Mono Eyeshadow in 201 Cafe Saint Germain: A wash of this buttery textured eyeshadow all over the lids and under the eye gives such a pretty look for spring (swatched). It's a shimmery purple/taupe shade that's slightly reminiscent of By Terry Misty Rock and can be applied easily with your finger or a flat shader brush.

Natural Collection Eyeshadows: These little eyeshadow pots are so affordable and are great for adding a hint of colour to the eyes. To achieve this I use my Zoeva 230 luxe pencil brush to smudge a small amount under my lower lash line. (Here's an autumnal version of this look and see the shades swatched here).

What are your favourite Spring eyeshadows? 


  1. I also love the Maybelline colour tattoos, especially in pink Gold, it's such a stunning spring shade! I wish i was brave enough to wear lilacs and blues on my eyes though! Lovely blogpost and photography as always xx
