Products of the Day #2 Spring Picks

This wasn't an intended 'Products of the Day' post, but I actually quite liked the way this turned out! 

The sun was shining & my daffodils were blooming, so I opted for a light, Spring-esque, everyday look. I've also been getting back into my Sex & the City box-set (guilty pleasure), so there may have been some SJP influence in there too! 
 
I started with Nars Sheer Glow Foundation : Ceylan; I've sung this foundations praises numerous times, but it's always one I come back to and I'm always in love with the satin finish, medium coverage results. I've been having a bit of a nightmare with foundations at the minute so it was nice to come back to something I can rely on! 

Any blemishes that were poking through got covered up with Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer : Ivory  again, I love this stuff. Great for concealing under eye baggage (not just bags - more like suitcases) as well as spots. All in all, a product I couldn't live without!
I then quickly filled in my brows with the Hourglass Arch Sculpting Pencil : Soft Brunette. I still feel like I'm getting to grips with this product. Most days I do love it, but others I feel I'm a bit too hasty and brows can get looking a bit too thick, a bit too fast. 
 
For colour, I opted for Arena, which I think is a very understated Mac eyeshadow shade. It looks quite peach-y in the pan, but translates on the lid to something a lot more subtle with a hint of shimmer, that I think would look lovely in Summer. To add a bit of definition I used Wedge in the outer corner and under my lower lash line. Followed by lashings of Maybelline the Falsies… All time favourite, no real comments needed here!
As for blush I thought Benefit's Sugarbomb would add a nice, natural flush with a hint of bronze to warm things up a bit! Topped off with a smidgen of Mac Mineralize Skin Finish: Soft & Gentle to highlight. All finished off with a swipe of Mac Impressive; a neutral rose/brown with a glossy finish!
 
I can see this combination becoming a quick favourite for light, sunny Spring days (as I'm typing this, it's gloomy as anything - come back sunshine, please!) 

What are your go-to Spring picks?

  2. You look absolutely stunning! Does the Mac lipstick have a name/number? I'm doing some make-up tests with a friend who's getting married soon at the moment and that colour is perfect! xxx

    1. It's lovely, isn't it?! I don't have All That Glitters, but I imagine it's a peachier version of that, from what I've heard. Really love it though :) xx
