A Simple Coral Look For Spring

Hi everyone. When I was preparing this post at the weekend I did not expect to see snow again :) What's going on with the weather in UK? I mean... There is 10 cm of snow in my garden and it keeps snowing! Crazy! Anyway... I am guessing that it is just temporary and I am hoping to see sunshine again.  I try to stick to natural looks in Spring and Summer and this one is my favourite - coral lips and cheeks and subtle eye makeup. 
I used the Liz Earle Sheer Skin Tint* as a base and added Bourjois Mineral Radiance Powder  as a bronzer. I wanted to keep the base dewy and fresh, so I didn't powder my skin. I also added a little bit of Liz Earle Perfect Fix Concealer * under my eyes and to camouflage imperfections. I am loving MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle and I use it every single day as a highlight and this look definitely needed it.

On my cheeks I am wearing my favourite summer blusher- Stila Convertible Lip and Cheek Colour in shade Gladiola. I reviewed it here last year and it is still one of my go to blushers.

To compliment coral cheeks, I went for Too Faced Color Drenched  Lip Cream in shade Juicy Melons. It is such a lovely lipstick- very pigmented, super moisturising and creamy.

On my eyes, I tried a gold pencil in the waterline (Barry M) and a hint of subtle gold and brown on the eyelids (Art Deco Eye Designer *). My eyelashes are super flat as usual... and I can't do anything about it, but I used Liz Earle Smudgeproof Mascara* to add more volume. That's it. Quick and easy.

  1. The weather really has been crazy lately, even here in the states. Just a couple of days ago we got two feet of snow and now we're having weather in the 40's and 50's!!
    Either way you look lovely and these kinds of bright and natural looks definitely get me excited for the Spring (hopefully) months to come :)


  2. That looks amazing on you! I definitely want to pick up the Stila Convertible Colour to add to my collection!
