5 Spring Make-up Essentials

We’re well into March and it looks like spring may have sprung! With every changing season I like to switch up my makeup bag. In spring I prefer my make-up to look fresh and natural (actually, I lean towards this look all year round, if I’m honest). Achieving this couldn’t be easier with a few carefully chosen products.

I have recently discovered PHB Ethical Beauty Botanical BB Cream (Fair). A great alternative to a heavier foundation, giving a ‘my skin, but better‘ finish. Although it is light coverage, it still does a decent job of covering any areas of darkness or slight discolouration. As well as having an SPF15, PHB Ethial Beauty BB Cream is also made with skin nourishing botanical ingredients. A great choice for spring.

If your skin is looking a little lacklustre after the cold winter months, then RMS Magic Luminizer can help you fake a healthy glow. I apply this after using the BB Cream (I also wear this on bare skin), dabbing along my cheekbones and on top of my cupid’s bow. Suitable for most skin tones, this champagne shade also doubles as a cream shadow – a hero product in my makeup kit!

Adding a flush of colour to the apples of your cheeks instantly brings some life to your face. A cream blush helps to keep things fresh. If you have dry or mature skin you will find it more hydrating than using a powder. I have recently been reaching for RMS Lip2Cheek Tint in shade Modest. Start off with a small amount of product making sure you blend well. This will leave a natural looking stain on your cheeks. As the name suggests, RMS Lips2Cheek Tint can also be used on your lips to add a pop of colour. I like to use a cotton bud to do this, before dabbing with my finger. RMS Beauty prides itself on using only quality natural and organic ingredients. As well as helping you look your best, you’re also looking after your skin at the same time.

Black mascara is an essential in my makeup kit. Mascara is often mentioned as one of the most difficult swaps to make when moving to natural and organic makeup. I have found Dr Hauschka Volume Mascara ideal for creating a natural look, without any clumping or smudging.

Although I favour a dewy look, I don’t want to look shiny. A light dusting of Australian brand Ere Perez Translucent Corn Perfecting Powder is a perfect choice for finishing off the look. This helps keep my makeup in place as well as eliminating any excess shine. It’s easy to apply and feels light on your skin – a new favourite of mine.

      It’s a great colour for me, although there are lots of tempting shades to try!
