Spring makeup look / Collab

Spring is fast approaching us and with a change of season usually come a change of makeup. Although I of course don't only wear certain products or shades at certain times of the year, there are of course some things that suit certain times better. Like gold eyes ad red lips in the winter for example, well in the Spring pink eyes and a pink lip are my favourites to wear so I thought I'd give you a glance at an everyday spring makeup look of mine.

This post is actually a collab with the lovely Freja from Freja L Kane who has not only an amazing blog but also youtube channel, both of which I will leave links too and you should definitely check them out!
So to start off my makeup I use the Freedom prostudio priming water and spritz that all over my face, then once that's dried I'll take my Mac paint pot in painterly and put that all over my eyelids setting it with the light powder from my Barry M chisel cheeks contour kit.
Then to create my pink spring look eyeshadow I have used the Sleek palette in storm and kept it very simple by putting the 5th shade on the bottom row which is a matte brown through my crease, then the 5th shade on the top row on the centre of my eyelid (this is my favourite eyeshadow ever which is why it's hit pan and there's hardly any left) and then I finish the eye look with the 2nd shade on the top row in my inner corner to brighten it up. Then I apply mascara and I've been using the Mac in extreme dimension 3D black lash which is great for volume and length!
Next is foundation and concealer and I've been using the L'oreal infallible 24hr foundation in the shade 120 vanilla and the two concealers I've been using for under my eyes and on my forehead are the Maybelline anti eye eraser in light and the L.A. girl pro conceal concealer in porcelain.

To contour very lightly I used the last shade in my Barry M chisel cheeks contour kit and then the bronze up all over my face I used the Soap and Glory solar powder bronzer. For blush I used the Soap and glory love at first blush to add a pink glow and for highlighter I used the classic Mary lou-manizer by theBalm.
To fill in my eyebrows I first used the Freedom brow pomade in medium brown and then went over the hairs to keep them in place with the Maybelline brow drama in dark blond. For lipstick I went with my liquid lipstick from Lottie London in the shade #tbt which is the perfect pink shade to tie it all together.

Finally I sprayed my face with the L'oreal infallible fixing mist to keep my makeup looking fresh and in place all day.

So this is my everyday makeup routine for spring and what I'm sure I'll be wearing most days, a sparkling pink eye and a matte pink lip!

Once again don't forget to check out Freja's post as she's also doing her own everyday spring makeup routine. I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you for reading!
