Make-up Look // Transitioning into Spring

Fashion wise, I adore autumn and winter, however when it comes to make-up, spring is my jam. There is something about sweeping powder pink eyeshadow across my lids that exhilarates me. Not to mention that those kind of hues make my blue eyes pop. The below look is probably more of a transitional look rather than 100% spring inspired (I kept my lip rather dark still) but it's something I am starting to wear more now the sun is making an appearance. Considering the clocks go back next weekend and Easter (totally representative of all spring vibes, am I right?), it's still very cold in the UK. I think, if playing with the below products again for the new season has taught me anything, it's that I need the Naked 3 palette in my life. I've used the Make-up Revolution Iconic 3 dupe for a long time and absolutely adore it, that I feel I can now justify the Urban Decay purchase...

For my base, I am straying further away from heavy foundations and bringing out the lighter complexion enhancers to suit the seasonal transition. My favourite from last spring/summer was the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation (£27), and i'm pretty certain that this year is not going to be much different. I love this base, it's as simple as that; it provides a light coverage that is definitely buildable and leaves my skin looking radiant and healthy - it's definitely one of those products for dewy base seekers. This lovely formula is further perfected with the use of the Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer (£7.99 - spoken more about in my Bourjois post) and the Too Faced Hangover Face Primer (£27)*. No spring look is complete without a flush of blush, and the Too Faced range is full of gorgeous spring hues. Love Hangover is the perfect dusky pink spring shade for the season, finished off - of course - with a touch of the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop (£37).

See what I mean about the Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 (£4) palette? It's full of so many pretty shades reminiscent of the Naked 3, maybe just not as well perfected so to speak. The pink colour spectrum makes for some of the best eye looks, and this palette offers them in abundance. At such an affordable price, this is definitely one to road test before making the UD splurge. 

In spring, I don't always like eyeliner.. maybe a touch of gel or kohl brown every now and then for my tight line and water line, but usually none at all. Because of this I need a lengthening mascara that's going to curl and separate my lashes. The GOSH Rebel Eyes Mascara (£8.99)* does just that; it's fast becoming one of my favourite drugstore mascaras.

What do you think? Is this look something you'd wear for spring? The lipstick is Jefree Star Androgyny for whoever is wondering, but this will be in a more detailed post later on in the week.
