Can you believe it’s officially spring? I’ve noticed that I no longer reach for my contour palette and my dark coloured eye shadows and lipsticks. But instead I reach for brighter colours and I’m trying to achieve a more ‘natural’ look on a daily basis. I’ve noticed my make-up bag has become more streamlined too, on a daily basis I am reaching for less products so I thought it’s time I showed you all my streamlined spring make-up bag.
I like to call these two products the dream team as I’m just absolutely obsessed with them. I have been a fan of BareMinerals for such a long time and these two products have really exceeded my expectations. If you’re a girl who likes a more ‘natural’ but still perfected make up look, BareMinerals is the brand for you. I love using this bronzer and this highlighter everyday for a light, day to day coverage. I find the bronzer and highlighter so handy as well as they have mirrors inside them and the amount of product you get in them is impressive. My only criticism would be is that why can’t you buy them as a duo? I think this would be the dream product if it was in a dual palette (like the Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow)
I’ve used Estee Lauder double wear for years and I really love using this foundation and it looks great on my skin tone. I’ve been using the Urban Decay All Nighter foundation (which is seriously good by the way) but I seem to always go back to using double wear.
I use these two products from Urban Decay everyday without fail. To conceal my dark circles I use the corrector in Peach and to finish I use the Naked Skin concealer in Medium Neutral. I can’t fault Urban Decay base products as they just glide onto your skin and blend so easily. I use my beauty blender to blend these products in and they help me achieve the perfect dewy skin base.
Everyone loves a good dupe right? I have been using the Benefit goof proof my brow for a long time now and I’ve discovered this brow product from L’Oreal and I’m obsessed with it. Why you wonder? It’s £5.99 and for me it works just as good (if not better) then the precisely my brow pencil. So if you're looking for a cheaper alternative to the Benefit goof proof brow pencil, you need to get your hands on this!
Rimmel London Volume Shake Mascara - £6.99 (currently on 3 for 2 at Boots)*
This mascara is new from Rimmel and I absolutely love it. There new volume shake mascara is aimed at solving all your mascara problems. This mascara gives your lashes clump free volume and defines your lashes at the same time. If you hate to throw away half-used mascara because it dries out or simply isn’t as good as new, this is the perfect mascara for you. And it’s only £6.99 at the moment and on 3 for 2 at Boots as well.
Lastly, for the more important part of this post! If you know me in real life you’ll know I’m a huge fan of Diet Coke and if you’re reading this mum, I don’t drink half as much Diet Coke like I used to! When I’m out and about this is my go to drink when I’m not fancying anything alcoholic and so when Diet Coke got in touch about their latest campaign, I was really excited to be asked to be a part of it.
Their latest campaign ‘Get The Gang Back Together’ was launched after research found that 4 in 5 people wish they could spend more time with their friends and Diet Coke are offering five lucky groups of friends a night away in a Luxury Penthouse Hotel in one of these five top cities… Rome, Paris, Barcelona, Dublin and of course London! All you have to do is share a photo via social media on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and use the hashtag #ItStartedWithaDietCoke.
