March Favorites

Ok, cliche or not but how great was the weather in March? Sun all around, happy smiley people on the streets, everything tasted and looked better!

Ive changed slightly my makeup routine, opting for light coverages and bright corals. La vie est belle!

Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 (shade 03) – Loved the lightness and how it provides good coverage with a matte finish. Ive skipped all together the moisturizer underneath when i had this on, as it was way to heavy. Looks lovely in photos, good coverage and great for oily combo skins.

Real Techniques Brushes – in particular the Stippling Brush and the Buffing Brush. My first encounter with these kind of brushes, I’ve only been using the classical flat foundation brush. Oh my, such a change! They deliver fast, flawless results im in love with them. The Stippling brush was heavily used for cream blusher too.

Benefit Cha Cha Tint – such a pretty coral tint, used it mainly on my lips as a base for my Lancome lipstick (see next) or as a base for my blush (love how it looks with UD Score on top).

Lancome French Touch in Sweet Marmalade – this is from the spring collection Le Rosarie des Delices. Looks almost neon, but when applied on the lips gives a sheer, soft shade of the perfect coral. Haven’t been so much in love with a lipstick in ages.

No 7 Vital Brights Cream Blush in Blossoming Pink – this is one of the cream blushers from the Lisa Eldridge collection for No7. Gorgeous, bright coral (you can see a pattern here…) that just melts on the skin and instantly makes you look and feel summery. Used my boots voucher to pay for it, so it was a real bargain too.

Givenchy Cat Eye sunnies – never in my life was interested in sunglasses until this year. Is it an age thing?! Anyway, was looking for a cat eye shape that would suit my face and these ones proved to be perfect. Also helped that they were on sale. Asos and Mango have a great selection of cat eye sunglasses, think ill get some red ones and maybe a leopard pair for fun :).

Happy Spring! x

    I’ve had the Clinique Moisture surge for some time now, I gave up with it for a while because I thought it was too heavy, but now I’m back and absolutely love it!
