Spring is upon us people! YAYYYyyyyyy. This means 3 things to me...
1. Lighter mornings and evenings. 2. Nicely chilled Rosé and maybe even a fruity cider and
3. Lighter more spring time make up and accessories.
I know that's its hardly sun bathing weather here in England but we have seen the occasional sunny day and in the stark light of the sunshine the wintery heavy make up can look just too much. These months ahead are a time to embrace that "natural look", I use that term loosely as if you know me at all my make up is anything but natural, but I do like to tone it down a wee bit.
Keeping on the light "natural" theme...Mineral make up can be a god send when the weather warms up. The filling milled powders airbrush any imperfections, but still allow your skin to peek through and breath making it look natural and virtually undetectable. Mineral make up is also perfect for spot and acne prone skin as the powder doesn't clog pores and can aide oil control as the formula's helps to soak excess sebum. The two I like using are Sheer Cover's Mineral powder* and a powder foundation from the all natural brand Benecos*.
When the sun pops out its essential to wear SPF, I know we should be wearing it all year round, but hey I'm a rebel and it's the last thing on my mind in the wind and rain, FACT. But I do like to wear something when I know the suns shiny rays will be gracing my body and especially my face. The Stila all day 10 in 1 bronzing bb cream is perfect for me as it contains SPF30 and also bronzes up my face, brilliant if your a fake tan wearer like myself and find your face is always paler than your body! Its gives a natural bronzed effect ( note; is does look super scary when first applied but done sheer down when buffed into the skin,.. promise. But if you are super pale this might be a bit dark for you).
