My Face Friday #4: Spring Edition




Now that the good weather is on it's way (funny I'm saying this when it's absolutely chucking it down with rain at the moment) I thought I would change up my make-up and make it a little brighter. I'm not usually one for a bright lip but if you've seen my past couple of My Face Friday's I have been attempting to ease my way into the bright lip club, I have yet to be fully accepted.

I have been using Duac Once Daily (prescription gel) to clear up my bad skin so my skin has changed quite dramatically from being very oily to quite dry and peeling (tmi?) around my cheeks especially. To combat this I have been pairing the Clinique Even Better Foundation (shade Linen) and my Make a Difference Origins moisturiser as my base to create a more moisturising and sheerer coverage which I have been loving as my skin is slowly improving.

I am still loving the Seventeen Stay Time concealer for under my eyes and anywhere else I want some extra coverage. To set my make-up I have swapped in my beloved Rimmel Stay Matte for the Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot. I was hesitant to try this powder but bloody hell, I will not be swapping back! This powder doesn't seem to ever look cakey on my skin, no matter how much I apply...believe me I have tried going crazy and applying it with a trowel and I still look glowy and natural. Major props to you Soap & Glory!

To finish my base I am back to the ol' Tarte Tipsy and for extra highlight the Sleek Contour Kit in Light. My eyebrows are courtesy of Benefit Brow-Zings and set with Maybelline Brow Drama, why fix something that is just so damn perfect?! A sweep of dark brown eye-shadow across my upper eyelashes for definition and a coat of Rimmel Scandal Eyes Mascara wakes up my eyes. And finally today the L'oreal L'extraordinare in Rose Symphony is gracing my lips thanks to the beautiful Gemma (Gemsmaquillage) for recommending it.

What are your recommendations for spring lip colours?
