Spring Makeup Look


Hiya everyone! 
I recently done this makeup look over on my Youtube channel and for those of you that haven't seen it - click here.
I really like the outcome of this look and I like how the colours go well together. I love pinks and greens in the spring and I really like how I've included my normal brown eye look into this but included a nice 'pop of colour' on the outer corners instead of a darker brown.

Face | For my face I used my everyday foundation which is the 'Match perfection' one from Rimmel. Like I've recently said, Rimmel foundations suit most people, me particularly and this one can be built up and loose powdered OR it can be left alone which works well if you like dewy skin. I used my typical loose powder for this look but instead of using it all over the face like I normally do, I applied it loosely and not pile it on! I gently applied it to the cheek area, so this time you can see a small glow whereas my everyday look doesn't have this, it will be more of a matte finish. 

Eyes | For my eyes I used the normal brown products that I use when I do a brown eye look. These are the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in 'on and bronze' and the first colour in the Sunkissed duo. I really like the light brown in the Sunkissed duo because I always apply it over the lid, crease and up to the brow. It's also not a matte colour but it isn't chalky at the same time - I really like it and surprised at how nice the colours are, considering it's not expensive. So I applied the brown colours as I normally would by using the Tattoo all over the lid, blending well and then applying the first colour of the Sunkissed duo all over my eye, ontop of the tattoo. I then used a 'Chit Chat' quad; these are from Poundland and I got them a while ago. They work incredibly well and I'm sure if you try these you'd be shocked at the pigment quality just as much as I was. I used the last green, the darker green, for this look and although this quad looks scary because it's a bit 'Pat Butcher' esque, once applied adnd blended they look ever so pretty. I applied the darker green in a V shape on my outer corner and blended well. I then used the mascara pictured for pretty, not heavy eyelashes and that's all I used! 

Lips | Lastly, for the lips, I applied the MUA Kissproof lipstain. I've not featured these on my blog so far but I got this one for Christmas and I've hardly used it. I decided to use it for this look and I really, really like them. I dont't have many lipstains but they're something I really like to use. I applied this one all over my lips and the colour was perfect & just what I wanted for this look. I then applied some gloss (defeats the object of a stain!) onto my lips to make them a bit more shimmery and that's the look done!

Like I said, I was so happy at how this turned out and the colours are gorgeous! I know we're well into May now but this would work for Summer too, so don't be afraid to use greens! Once you blend and apply them well I think they're the nicest colours to use and I think they have a bad reputation! 
I hope you all enjoyed this look and I'd love to see your Spring Looks! Leave pictures/links below if you'd like!

Happy May!
