I’ll admit, I’m not as strict as most when it comes to switching things up with the change in weather. I generally know what I like and I like it all year round. This past year however I’ve found myself introducing new products with the change in seasons, and I’ve been loving it. Considering that spring has finally sprung, I’ve noticed some changes in my makeup routine. Whether as a direct result of the weather, or just products I’m loving currently -I thought you’d all love to know what products I’ve been using almost daily now that Spring is here!
This is actually a foundation I picked up ages ago and tried once then tossed aside, but more recently I was inspired by a YouTuber to give it a second try and I’ve been loving it. I’m not a huge Max Factor fan but the Max Factor Miracle Match Foundation has been really impressing me lately. The claims to “blur & nourish” sounded like just what my skin needs right now. I’ve been loving my skin but my pores have been such a huge hassle so I’ve been needing some extra blurring and I think this works. What made me realize how amazingly this works is mostly my best friend repeatedly complimenting my skin whenever I’d wear it! I love the colour too, I know that’s silly but honestly this is such a perfect match ( I use Sand 60). I will note though, because I have to, this does kind of stink. The smell is so strange, it reminds me of carpets in primary school. Don’t ask. But it doesn’t linger, you’ll only smell it when applying.
One of the few Spring-related changes on this list would be my love for my Sephora Radiant Luminizing Drops . With the warmer weather, and it really does get super warm where I am, I’ve been hating how powders sit on my skin. So I’ve decided I want to start liquid/cream highlighting. My problem with that has always been it moving my foundation around, and honestly this is the best product I’ve used to avoid that. I will say it’s not as intense a glow as I’d like, but I’ve been enjoying how natural it looks lately.
If you’ve been around for a while you’ll know my obsession with colour correcting as of late. I’ve tried out so many options and I keep trying to find the dream one, and I decided it was time to try a luxury one. Luckily I received Lnacome’s Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage Colour Correctors from Octoly, and I’ve been obsessed ever since. I hate to admit it but the drugstore cannot even compare to these!! They are so incredibly creamy and lightweight on the skin and they really do the job amazingly! I’ve been reaching for Green and Peach most to help with my scarring.
For concealer, I recently raved on about Rimmel’s Match Perfection in my favourites. This concealer just absolutely melts into my skin and I genuinely think this is my favourite formula of a base product I’ve ever used. It honestly is insanely amazing. For more you can read my favourites 🙂
Now, I’ve mentioned recently that I’ve been loving incorporating more shimmers into my eye looks, and whenever I go through a shimmer phase I tend to fall back on my L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Amber Rush . This has especially been hitting every spot lately! It’s such a unique and beautiful shade, and I feel like it leaves every look looking so feminine and spring-appropriate! I’ve been obsessed.
Another Favourites mention is the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. I cannot even begin to explain to you how beautiful this is to set your undereyes so just please trust me and try it out! I’m onto something, I swear. It’s so insanely lightweight and leaves my under-eyes looking so hydrated and supple while keeping them in place and avoiding any creasing!
For blush I’ve been dabbling here and there but I’ve been leaning mostly towards Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Blush in Captivating. It is a coral/peach blush that looks super intense in the pan but it honestly looks so natural on! I love how this works with Amber Rush-obsessed!
I’m continuing my mascara a week series, but lately I also keep cheating and reaching for my Fairy Drops Mascara. It just looks so natural and gives me length and curl instead of a lot of volume as usual. I like how simply it looks, to me spring is all about dainty feminine things haha, so this lash look fits right in!
Lastly but certainly not least, Pixi By Petra’s Makeup Fixing Mist. I’ve mentioned to you all my love for their Hydrating Milky Mist, so I had to try this one out. I’ve been testing out a lot of mists for an upcoming blog post and I seem to keep going back to this one. It smells so heavenly amazing haha. It really helps to settle all the powders on my face and melt them into my skin, as well as giving me a lovely glow!
Let me know what products you’ve been loving this spring!
