PRETTY IN PINK, MY SPRINGTIME GO TO'S.

I don't know about you but I'm done with winter now. The 'Christmas glow' is over and the weather in England is so miserable and clammy, I'm ready for spring! I thought I'd share with you today a fresh, dewy makeup look that harks of spring and is perfectly pretty and rosy.

FACE

IOPE cushion foundation in C21 (review) | Honestly, this foundation is everything. The formula, cover (medium coverage off the bat), texture, finish, every element is sublime. The applicator included is the best way to apply this product, I like to press it on through my tzone and undereyes and sheer out from there for a really natural finish. You can pick it up here at Yesstyle with a free refill.

Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage in SC3 | I've rekindled my love for this concealer. It's all too easy to forget great products when you're trying out so many, but the dry consistency, perfect for blemish covering, has made me reach for it once again. I use the warmth of my finger to blend this in where I need it.

CHEEKS

Chanel Les Beiges blush in No21 | You'll already know if you've read my Valentines Beauty Edit, that I am just in love with this blush. It's creamy, silky, slick and delicate, and this pink version gives a subtle rosy sheen. I draw this on from my apples through to the backs of my cheeks and blend with a finger up to my temples.

Kiko Shade Fusion Trio blush in 03 Abricot (review) | Because the rest of the makeup is so light and bright, I'm doubling up on the blush for some extra punch (and staying power) on my cheeks. I go through with an angled blush and mainly keep this on the apples.

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance powder in 01 Highlight (review) | Both blushes give you a nice, glowy sheen, so I'm staying natural with the highlight. Ok scrap that, I always like a natural looking highlight. This baked powder has a soft pinkish hue which ties in supremely with the pink theme. I like to use my Nars Yachiyo brush with this, it's the perfect size and shape to apply and blend in one action.

EYES

Topshop Glow Pot in Polish | I really didn't like this initially but the golden-pink iridescence and creamy formula that stays looking dewy won me over when I tried it on my lids (a trick I learnt from one of Ms Eldridge's recent videos). A touch of powder as a base stops this from creasing too much.

Soap & Glory Archery pencil | A dupe for the coveted Anastasia Brow Wiz, this guy is so much cheaper (only £8) and lasts and wears just as well. I'm going light and natural with the brow today so just filling in any sparse areas.

LIPS

No7 High Shine Lip Crayon in Delicate Pink | I'm 'going for lunch with a girlfriend' (how cosmopolitan and SATC am I??) so I want a lip that's low maintenance and easy to reapply. These new chubby-stick-esque lip crayons from No7 are deliciously balmy and comfortable to wear. I'll be picking up a few more shades (there are 10 available) I think..

And that's it. It's a pretty simple look but it makes me feel pulled together, fresh, glowy and healthy-looking.



Are you sporting a go-to makeup look at the moment?

  4. I've heard of IOPE but never actually tried any of their products, I might get some next time I'm in Hong Kong because I've heard great things about them. I've never tried Top Shop beauty either!

  11. There is lots here I haven't actually tried (and a lot going on my list!) but I'm most curious about the S&G ABH dupe! I have Brow Whiz and it's no secret that it's pricy, so a cheaper alternative would be very welcome!
