31 Day Fashion Blogger Challenge - Day 11 - Your Spring Essential...

My spring essential isn't new clothes, it's new makeup. I spend winter hibernating in my fave red and black eyeshadows, lots of black eyeliner, matte nude lips and dark nails, so when spring comes I get all shimmery and pastelly with myself for about 5 minutes while I attempt to adjust to the daylight. Here are my current faves for daffodilling in the spring :)

We haaaaaave MAC Viva Glam Nicki Minaj lippy - the perfect way to brighten your day, MAC Big Bounce The Cool Elite - a super sheer, super glittery white cream shadow, MAC Cremesheen Glass in Private Screening - a baby pinky nudey gloss, Stargazer Eyeliner Pen in Pink 6 - for a shock, Stargazer Baked Duo Eyeshadow in Ascot - a yummy sparkly pinky brown, Stargazer Metallic Eyeshadow Pen in Bronze - a lighter way to shade. GOSH Natural Cream Blush in Electric Pink - for an immediate flush, Bourjois Little Round Pot Blusher in 54 Rose Frisson - to add a touch of shimmer on top of the GOSH blush and for my nails, Mavala Fresh Melon - a shade good enough to eat!

I find that these lighter, shimmery colours make me feel more springy even when it's pouring down outside and I'm wearing a leather jacket ;)

What's your spring essential?

J - Spring fresh.

  2. I know what you mean, I really want to buy lots of new makeup for the new season. It's just that you can wear it WAY more than a new top or whatever. I really need some new lipsticks I think..
