ready for spring #3 - Plushest Punch and BB creams

Since I started blogging in October, I pretty much threw away any make up that seemed to be pretty crappy and any new make up I bought was very Autumn/Winter based - dark lips, kind of medium to heavy coverage foundation etc. It's about time I thought about buying more Spring/Summer directed items.

I've chosen the DrJart+ Regenerating BB Cream for four reasons; it's a lighter coverage to any foundation I have, it will adapt my any changes in my skin colour (not that I tan anyway!), it has SPF 30 which is incredible and this formula will be perfect for my skin type. There are four different BB creams aimed at all skin types - this one will be perfect for me as it's hydrating yet will combat any redness or blemish I have whilst still brightening the skin.

I've not reached for this once in around 6 months as I've loved the dewy skin look, however I think I'll be getting some use out of the cult product Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder this summer. I've only used a dusting of my MUA Pressed Powder lately to make my make up to stay put, but through Summer the heat may mean a bit more movement in my base products, so I think I'll be buying this just to give my products a little more longevity and control any oils.
I love the Maybelline Colossal Volume Express mascara, it's amazing at separating, lengthening and giving volume to my lashes, but it's time to go waterproof, for obvious reasons!

Being a bit of a ghost girl, I do need to add warmth and contour to my face, and I really need to buy a new bronzer. This Jouer Replenish and Protect Hydrating Bronzer Powder is a gorgeous shade and to make it even better, it's hydrating with an SPF of 39 (39, seriously?) This would look perfect with a little coral blush on the apples of the cheeks!

Blue liner looks like it will be making a come through in Spring/Summer and I think this Eyeliner Cake in Danger by Illamasqua will be perfect. With it being a powder, you could maybe use it in your crease or when doing a smoky eye, but the main thing you can do is mix with a bit of water or Sealing Gel and use this as an eyeliner with an angled eyeliner brush. I think it'd look amazing!

Finally, everyone knows my love for my this product, but I feel the colour I own now will be too dark for everyday. This Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Plushest Punch will be light enough for a day time look but still add an opaque, hydrating coverage.

  1. I'm in the same boat as you, I only really started buying decent makeup and nail varnish in the autumn/winter time so need to update with some spring colours. I'm dying to try the Intense Chubby Sticks, the dupes by Revlon are some of my favourite lip products x
