Spring Beauty Picks

spring beauty
Despite the sudden (and very typical) downpour on the first day of spring here in the UK, the change of season is finally here! The air is scented with cut grass and fresh laundry as people tend to their waking gardens after the long winter's slumber and daffodils, crocuses and tulips spring up, brightening the world again.

From being quite set on muted tones and berries through the transition into spring, I've started to embrace pastels again to welcome me into the warmer months. I've actually pulled out a few shimmery violet and soft lilac tones too!

After spending months without my beloved Origins Ginzing Moisturiser, I repurchased a pot for spring. It's safe to say that I won't be without this heavenly, citrus scented pick again! It's lightweight, gel like texture means that a little goes a long way. It leaves skin radiant, hydrated and feeling refreshed - it's divine!

For an all over pampering treat, the dreamy Scrubee from Lush is the one. This combines nourishing butters and oils with exfoliating ground almonds and coconut to polish, pamper and preen the skin. The honey sweet and uplifting citrus scent is unreal, a great all-rounder for spring!

For fragrance, I've pulled out Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream, a breezy, feminine scent with notes of blackberry, jasmine, pear and blue wisteria. It's delicate, airy and floral whilst being warm and light, ideal for the warmer weather!  

On my nails, I'm planning on bringing Essie Eternal Optimist with me through spring, and probably summer too - I just can't get enough of this rosy shade! Another pick, Essie's Ladylike, is a gorgeous creamy muted mauve hue, a great neutral shade for the wedding season.

For blusher, I adore the Hourglass Blusher in Diffused Heat. This perky coral pink blusher boosts radiance with it's bursts of ambient lighting powder and works to create a flawless glow. Paired with the Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette, they make a dreamy match for dewy spring skin. 

I've pulled out a couple of brights for my lips, the Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Yu is my go-to for a pop of pink. A gorgeous, creamy, long lasting and pigmented formula, this vibrant pink helps to perk up tired skin and is ideal for a fresh, dewy look. The Charlotte Tilbury Coachella Coral, a pretty coral pink is a great every day pick too! 

On my eyes, I've been feeling a little uninspired with eyeshadows lately and so I've opted for the Nars Duo in Violetta to try and move away from the everyday champagne shades that I normally reach for. I'm planning on patting the shimmery violet hue on my lids or smudging the muted lavender under my lower lashes. I really need to add a new palette to my collection, I love the look of this Zoeva palette
Lastly, The Nyx Jumbo Eyeliner in Milk is a tired eye saviour, added onto the waterline it really brightens up the eyes!
