Spring Makeup | Collaboration with Drifting Lexi

Back in April, Lauren from Drifting Lexi and I did a Spring/Autumn makeup collaboration. We each came up with a look to represent the season we were going into as we live on opposite sides of the world! Six months later, and it’s time for a role reversal – it’s my turn to showcase a Spring inspired look. I wanted it to be bright and fresh and I definitely achieved that!

Note: This look also doubled as the makeup I wore to Ellie Goulding’s concert at the weekend.

Products Used:

As usual, I began by applying my trusty Simple moisturiser.

  • Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil in 002 Hazel
  • Max Factor Lasting Performance Foundation in 101 Ivory Beige – This foundation gives skin a lovely, natural appearance whilst still making the skin look flawless. This is due to the medium-high coverage of the foundation. (I also used this foundation because it is more travel friendly than Rimmel’s Match Perfection which comes in a glass bottle).
  • Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer – 1 Fair
  • Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Barely Branded – I applied this shade as a base to my eyelids, making it easier for eyeshadow to stick to.
  • Maybelline ‘The Nudes’ Palette – I patted the gold shade all over my lids on top of Barely Branded.
  • Rimmel Day 2 Night Mascara – I applied one coat of lengthening mascara before going in with one coat of volume mascara a couple of minutes later.
  • Dainty Doll Powder Blush 004 You Are My Sunshine – The flecks of gold in this blush make it perfect to highlight my cheekbones. It also teams so well with the gold eye look.
  • MAC Without Your Love – This lipstick is a beautiful pop of light pink and I love wearing this shade with the eye look above. Without Your Love brings the look together and makes everything look fresh and bright!
  • Rimmel Oh My Gloss! #150 Glossaholic – Without Your Love is quite a pale shade and I find adding a lick of gloss over it tops everything off nicely and completes the look.

    That Dainty Doll Blush looks so pretty – perfect bright Spring shade!
    And you’re right, that Max Factor foundation has such a flawless finish – I’m sure it does help that you have such great skin to begin with! 😉

      That blush is my favourite, it’s a dupe for NARS Orgasm 🙂 I don’t think of my skin as being that great but thank you for the compliment! I try to keep my skincare simple and fuss free!
