I could not be more excited for Spring to finally be here! Brighter, longer days and finally there's no need for huge wool coats and gloves. With the change of season I also like to change up my makeup look, I'm never overly fussed with keeping up with catwalk trends however there's a couple that are just so wearable I can't help but give them a go. Wanted to share some of my favourite spring makeup hacks to instantly update your look. Whether it be day or night I think anyone can pull these looks off. 

Nothing screams spring like a fresh and dewy base, flawlessly polished skin thats lit from within it sure to make you the envy of beauty lovers worldwide. Having combination skin I find this to be a slightly trickier look to pull off without edging on oily. This look all starts with a good moisturizer, having something light and whipped that plumps up your skin is going to provide the best base for your look, I start off with some of the Nivea soft skin cream or the Elemis Pro-Radiance Flash Balm. My top pick for an everyday glowy foundation is a high street pick of Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation and I'm in the shade Classic Ivory. This foundation has so many uses, depending on how much blending you do changes the level of coverage, I often apply this with a damp sponge for a higher coverage but still glowy look or with my everyday fave real techniques buffing brush. To matte this out a little I've been reaching for the le roche posay Serozinc spray, made to just matte out your skin and dry up and excess oil I've been loving using this mist to set my makeup. I also reach for the L'Oreal Infalliable Matte powder throughout the day to touch up especially when I've got a long day I hate having my makeup rub off throughout the day so keeping my t-zone touched up with powder really helps. I've been loving this pick from L'Oreal because it's so finely milled it doesn't leave me looking cakey which I love. 

Another spring fave is double blusher, using two different tones to highlight and accentuate your cheekbones. Starting with a darker more bronze toned blush like this one from ELF I add this to the hollows of my cheeks but only to the first third of my cheekbones, this adds a little definition. Technically this is replacing my contour, during spring I like to lighten up on my products to give my face a brighter and lighter complexion. I then take a paler baby pink blush like this one from Rimmel and I add that to the apples of my cheeks. This two tone look is something straight off this years runways and is so easy to recreate. Especially on days where I'm looking for something lighter or looking to wear less makeup in general.

Making a comeback is everything 60's, the hair, the makeup. Think Lana Del Ray and you're there. I'm loving big backcombed curls with a cupids bow lip and an accentuated crease, for those of us who aren't pro's with the liquid liner it's so easy to just throw on a champagne shadow like Kitten from Stila, and then take a darker matte brown or black, I love using Tease from the Naked 2 palette and then just blend blend blend. I find the easiest way to create this look is to take an eyeliner brush and wet it slightly and then apply the matte crease shade wet instead of dry, it's easier to handle the pigmentation is darker and you're able to get that slick finish with a lot less effort. Top this eyeshadow with lashings of mascara and then move on to lips and base. The 60's look was very flawless high coverage makeup so I reach for my Estee Lauder Double Wear makeup, with a cool toned contour like Benefit Hoola and no blush. To finish this look I add a neutral lip, like Clinique Nude Pop Lipstick, keeping it very natural looking, like enhancing my cupids bow and keeping any gloss to a minimum.

So that's it! As easy as that you can recreate this seasons runway looks everyday. I hope you found that helpful and stay tuned for more content coming your way!
