Spring Must Haves

 

hearts

Its that time of Year again, Out with the Old and in with the New AKA Almost and I say Almost time for Spring!!.  My makeup currently has alot of vampy colours from the Winter, matte liquid lipsticks and hand cream to get rid of the Winter dryness.  Spring is  my favourite time of year flowers start to bloom, we change our wardrobe and of course we change up our makeup bags. This year my goal is to also be more compact aka having multi purpose products so my purse isn’t soo heavy.

 

Here are my Top 3 Items for Spring that I will be definitely bringing into my bag!

YSL Babydoll Kiss and Blush- This is my favourite item as its very versatile and a little bit goes along way.  YSL is known for their luxury products with amazing smells and gorgeous packaging.  Although on the pricier side, the Baby doll Kiss and Blush is a must have.   Use it on your cheeks and your lips for that airbrushed light weight feel with a pop of colour!

Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow- Okay so I have actually had this for a while but I always go to it.  No matter if I need more colour to my face and a bit of bronzer in the Winter ( We have not had sun for soo long)  or if I need a more highlight, the Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow is a Staple in my bag.  You can also use the bronze and the highlight colours as eye shadows as well to give you  a very natural looking eye for the Spring/Summer months.   This also comes in a deeper palette

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer- Comes in a few formulas like Oil Free, Regular with SPF20  and Illuminating.  Laura Mercier is a brand that focuses on amazing, flawless skin.  Her products are all great and delivery on their claims.  The tinted moisturizer is one of the best on the market being very light weight, having enough coverage and not clogging your pores.  I love how she has a few formulations so you have variety to choose from.  Availabe at Sephora

 

 

 

3 Must Have Summer Essentials

Summer is here (well almost) and you know what that means, hot days,drinks on the patio, runny mascara, and shiny faces =P.  As we leave Winter we should change up our makeup bag with more  Spring and Summer beauty products.  That means we can put away the vampy lipstick and the powder compacts. Here are my top 3 Must Have products for Summer

1) Evian Water- I love this as its feels so refreshing on your face ( definitely cools you off a bit) and revives any dull makeup on your face =).  What I also love about this is that it comes in a travel size as well. ( Perfect for beach days).  Spritz on your face and watch the magic (TA DA!!) happen. From Boring/Dull to Natural Luminous Skin

2)Blotting Papers- If you are like me, I “glow” like crazy during these months. Sometimes I glow too much and I swear people could see their reflection on my forehead.  Blotting papers are a great alternative to powders as they remove exess oil without adding on any sort of makeup on your face ( more makeup= more chance of it looking cakey).  Blotting papers can be found just about anywhere

3)Lipstains- These are a must! The give your lip a “just bitten” look without looking too done up.  Apply it in the morning and you will barely have to touch up through out the day.  It gives you lips a fresh, natural look that is perfect for those summer nights.  TIP:Some stains can be used on your lips and your cheeks, Great way to keep your makeup bag compact!
