Spring Make-up Update

Now that we've officially made our way (thankfully) into Spring, I thought my make-up bag could do with a little bit of an update. In an effort to lighten everything up and embrace fresh natural looking make-up and step away from the darker Winter shades -that to be honest, have been in my make-up bag far too long now, I picked up some new things.

Blush: From the end of last Summer I have pretty much, apart from the odd few times been exclusively using Nars "Orgasm". The main reason is laziness to be honest with you, Its been in my make-up bag so it saved looking out a new one. I wanted a brighter paler pink, something that could look very natural and pretty without shimmer through it. I ended up with one of the Lo'real True Match Blushes in "Rose Pastel", I've only used it twice but am loving it so far and it has given me exactly what I wanted. I also picked up one of the new Real Techniques brushes because it was too pretty to resist!

Lips: I spent a while looking for a lip colour as I didn't want to come away with anything I would have normally chosen -my hand covered in swatches by the end of my search. After deciding, I went with Bourjois Color Boost in "Peach on the Beach". It's one of those chubby pencil products with a glossy finish, and the shade is a bright peach. I've been wearing a little over some Eight Hour Cream for a hint of colour but as we get into Summer I think it will look lovely applied more heavily. It also claims to be waterproof but I haven't tested that out.

Eyes: I have been wearing black eye liner for months now, either Urban Decays "Perversion" for a smudgy look, or Stila "Stay All Day" liner for a more precise flick. I want to step away from black for a while so picked up two of Rimmel Soft Kohl pencils, one a warm brown and one navy blue. I've had these pencils before and I really get along with them, they go on well without pulling your eyelids and they smudge easily for messy or smoky looks.

Face: I am a huge fan of YSL Touche Eclat, but I haven't had one in quite some time so thought I would give a (much) more affordable alternative a go. I had heard greats reviews of the Lo'real Lumi Magique online and I'm impressed with it so far. I've been using it on my cheek bones in place of my usual Nars highlighter.

Nails: Nails Inc recently released their "The New White" collection, it includes four shades, all white based with a hint of colour to them -my favourite being Iced Mint. When I came across this pale blue Barry M polish in "Eat My Dust", it reminded me a lot of the collection. I haven't tried it out yet but am looking forward to doing so, it's also a quick dry formula so I'm interested to see how fast it dries. All too often do I paint my nails only to smudge them when I can't sit still for long enough.

Do you update your make-up bags according to season? I have to admit I normally forget to but might do it more often now!
