The Spring Edit.

Thursday, 20 March 2014

As soon as February is out of the way, the lure of springtime pastels becomes too much. It starts with a slight coral blush and before you know it has escalated into a full blown pastel haven. Nails, lips, cheeks and dewy foundations are out in force..

Dewy Foundations; I love nothing more than starting with a base that leaves my skin glowing and looking really healthy. My favourites at the minute are all drugstore gems..Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, Rimmel Wake Me Up and my latest purchase Bourjois Happy Light Foundation.

Blushes; Ohh blush, how I love you. As the weather gets a teeny bit brighter and not so miserable, I love to rock the coral, baby pinks and peaches. They add just that natural flush to your cheeks.

Lips; Oh where to begin...if I could wear summer time lipsticks all year, I would..Oranges, Pinks, Corals lips=happy rachael. My favourite shades for this spring are Topshop in Macaroon, Bourjois Color Boost in Peach on the Beach and MAC Snob.

Nails; Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine just scream the perfect spring/summer nails to me. Perfect texture, perfect finish and the most gorgeous colours. I have Blueberry, Prickly Pear and Greenberry and I love them all equally. 

Perfume; In Spring/Summer I tend to go for more girly, floral type perfumes. Flowerbomb by Victor Rolf and Daisy by Marc Jacobs in particular.

What are your spring picks? Are you a pastel fanatic?
