Step into spring

As spring gets nearer and the blossom appears on the trees, so do our bare legs and florals galore. So i thought i'd do a "spring musts" post and introduce everyone to my spring beauty products i go back to every year. 

First of all: make-up. Now i'm not very brave when it comes to dramatic eyes and trying something new so when the weather starts to change i often go for more pinks and not nudes, the Revlon colour stay (12 hour) eyeshadows are my guilty pleasure- i often don't buy eyeshadows as i constantly use my Urban Decay naked pallet. These shades are quite pigmented but you can build them up as much as you like, the soft champagne shade is great for highlighting your brow bone and the darker maroon shade is perfect for contouring.This pallet is 05 blushed wines. In winter i tend to stay away from pink blusher and aim for bronzing products to give me a bit of colour, but this Mac pro longwear in 'stay pretty' is a must for spring- as you can tell i've almost used this blusher to the bone as it just gives your cheeks that fresh pinched look as if you've been out in the chilly mornings. Lastly is the Mac satin lipstick in the colour 'snob' i cant remember the last time i bought a pink lipstick so this is a perfect re-introduction to the shade. I think Mac lipsticks are perfect for shoving on once and not having to re-apply for a few hours, i don't even have to talk about how good they are- as you all ready know!

I've applied the Revlon eyeshadows, i used the bottom shade and the two top ones (the champagne colour to highlight my brows). And i just think it gives that 'pretty in pink' girly look to a sweet outfit. 
Next on the list is Nails, these two shades are my go-to shades for a cute and preppy look. My favourite thing to do to add a personal edge to these shades is daisy nail art- pretty white petals and gold glitter centres. The shade on the left is Revlon nail enamel in the colour 'eclectic' this is a combination of duck egg blue and a pastel green. The other shade is BarryM Gelly in the colour 'prickly pear'. Both colours are right on trend as pastels are all you see! They go on beautifully and both give a gel manicure effect. 
Last but not least is the return of the sunglasses! Now you know when you're driving along, turn a corner and BAM you get blinded by the sun? I like to keep a pair of sunglasses in my bag from ow until the end of summer- i have my favourite Steve Madden specs of course but i saw these beauties in Primark at a bargain price of £2.00. Now i've owned Primark sunglasses before and they actually are good protection from the sun, because of the price it doesn't matter if they snap or a lens pops out whilst in the depths of your bag! I thought the tortoise shell frames would go with basically any outfit you need to pair them with.
