When it comes to makeup, I like to keep thing natural, simple and easy. Springtime means a lightweight foundation, cool tone colors, keeping my overall look fresh and glowing. Today on the blog I’m breaking down my everyday spring products that keeps me looking fresh, awake, and effortless, giving me a simple springtime look.
I’ve just started using this Becca Backlight Priming Filter and love it so far. This primer gives me a lovely glow, while keeping my makeup in place for the day. It glides on the face very nice, feeling moisturizing and light. I like to use the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Fluid as my foundation. This lightweight fluid gives little coverage, but just enough to give you radiance, comfortable on the skin, and protects against the sun with its SPF 15. I’m a big fan of Chanel products because of their smell, if you are sensitive to smells or don’t like a scent to your products, this one may not be right for you. The Urban Decay Naked concealer has been my favorite of a while now. It provides a good amount of coverage, is blendable and hydrating under the eyes.
I like to use my Marc by Marc Jacobs Lolita eye palette. This palette gives me all the shadows I need to get a simple eye look. I’ve had this palette for a while, and am starting to gravitate to it more because of its light pink hues, great for an everyday look. The shadows are blendable, easy to work with and are fairly pigmented. If there were one palette I would recommend from the Marc Jacobs beauty line, the Lolita would be the one!
I’ve loved using this Clinique Superfine liner for brows. It’s a great alternative to the highly popular Anastatia brow wiz. I found that its easily workable, glides on with the slightest touch, and the color suits be better than the brow wiz. I sometimes like to add a winged eyeliner, but only do it on the outer half of my eyes, especially for a day look. I like to use the Inglot gel eyeliner, this product allows me to maneuver the perfect wing, lasting and staying put all day.
I’m not really into the strong contour look, probably because I’m not very skilled at it, lol, instead I like to bronze my face and use a blush that is light and glowing. This Bobbie Brown Shimmer Brick in Apricot is one of my favorites. I use it as a blush/highlighter in one. I love the color pay off and it gives me a fresh glowing look on my cheeks (I believe this shade is limited edition). I top off my makeup look with a light sweep of the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Powder. This sets my makeup nicely, giving it an over all even finish, and the smell is a plus for me also.
I tend to reach for more of my glosses during these spring months. This YSL Volupte Tint in oil is a unique product like no other. It’s an oil tint that acts like a gloss, but finishes to a stain when it has settled for a while. I enjoy using this for its light feeling on the lips, color payoff, and scented mango smell! Love this. I like to add a neutral lip liner before applying certain gloss/lip colors to ensure i get the exact color transferred to my lips.
So these are the product I like to use for my everyday look. Again, I like to keep things light and fresh for these spring months. These products are exactly what I used for this look. It’s a simple, easy makeup look that anyone can use. I’m curious to see if I’ll change it up, or add any new products to my collection for some new spring looks. Stay tuned!
