Spring Face

Spring is here! I am so happy to be out of the dark, cold, depressing winter months and welcome those lovely, sunny, fresh spring days. With the new season comes the new beauty trends for spring, which got me so excited to take a trip to Boots to pick up some new products for a fresh spring face.

Primer - Nivea Express Hydration Primer
This is my go-to primer on most days. It is lightweight and makes the skin feel fresh and fully primed ready for make up. I tend to go for this in the morning when i'm doing my every day make up. Not only does it even out the skin ready for make up application but it's also very hydrating (as the name would suggest) and gives the skin that bit more moisture.

Foundation - No7 Instant Radiance foundation
So i went to the No7 counter and got a skin match (i am the palest shade - of course) I then decided to pick up the instant radiance foundation which advises a medium coverage. I chose this because i wanted a natural looking foundation that would give me a bit of a glow - along the lines of Rimmel's Wake me up foundation. I've used this foundation for about a week and i love it! It matches my skin perfectly, i don't think I've ever had a foundation that matches me so well. If you get the chance to go to the No7 counter for a skin test then i would recommend it if you're looking for a very natural looking foundation. The foundation definitely gives a medium coverage and a lightly dewy finish which i love for a gorgeous spring face.

Highlighter - Loreal Lumi Magique concealer
I've been using this under my eyes and down the middle of my nose to highlight my skin and it works a treat! You twist the bottom of the little tube and the product comes out at the top with the application brush. I've found that it blends really well and gives a gorgeous illuminating effect. It makes your eyes pop and hides the dark circles well which is what we like! Overall a great little concealer to use as a highlighter.

Setting Spray - Mac Fix
I use this after i have applied my make up for a lovely dewy finish. I have read that you can use it before make up application or after but i don't tend to use it before as i find it works better as a setting spray. This is a great product to use to give your skin a bit of a boost. It also helps your make up to last throughout the day.

So there is my spring face products that i will be using throughout the lovely season. Let me know if this helped you at all and if there's any other similar products that i should look out for
