The Spring Edit

Spring has finally sprung so I thought I'd share some of my favourite makeup products for this season.


I recently picked up the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation after Tanya Burr recommended it. I got the shade Classic Ivory and it's a really good match. It applies perfectly to the skin and I like to use my Real Technique buffing brush to give a flawless finish. I think this foundation is a bargain at £6.99 and you can find it HERE.

I also love Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum which I have talked about quite a lot in previous posts. It gives a beautiful finish which is not too matte but not to glowy; perfect for Spring months. 

Rimmel's Wake Me Up concealer has been a favourite of mine since I first purchased it in the summer. It works really well as an under-eye concealer; masking dark circles and brightening  the area without being at all cakey. This concealer can be found HERE for £5.49.


I like to use neutral colours on the eyes especially in Spring and Summer because I feel it keeps the makeup looking light and fresh. I love the MUA Undress Me Too palette which has a range of neutral eyeshadows ranging from cool greys to stunning gold metallics. This 12 shadow palette can be found HERE for just £4!


I have chosen three lipsticks which are all in the same pink-coral group. My favourite of the three is MAC Crosswires cremesheen lipstick. It is super easy to apply and I love the formulation. It lasts well on the lips so you don't need to re-apply it often (probably only after eating). MAC lipsticks at priced at £15 and can be found HERE.

Next is another favourite of mine which has made a few appearances on my blog, Revlon Lipbutter in Juicy Papaya (another recommendation from Tanya Burr). This is a great product for school makeup because it's quite sheer but still gives a little pop colour. This product can be found for £7.99 HERE.

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in Shade 16 is a lovely Spring colour.  This is more of a pink colour and has good pigmentation with a beautiful smooth texture. This lipstick retails for £5.49 HERE.


Spring shouts pastels! So I picked out Barry M Gelly Nail Polish in Papaya and Prickly Pear. Papaya is a gorgeous pink-coral and prickly pear is a lovely lilac colour. I love the formula and glossy finish of these polishes. Buy them HERE for £3.99. 

I also love this baby blue polish in the shade Mind the Gap, Victoria by Rimmel. I really like the brushes on the Rimmel nail polishes because they are wide so you only need one swipe and you're done. Also, the pigmentation is awesome which means one coat is often enough. However, I find these nail polishes chip really easily which is a shame because otherwise they are perfect. Find them for £3.69 HERE.

What's your favourite thing about Spring? Are there any products you love to use this season?
