So it is definitely not Spring for me here in the southern hemisphere, but else where in the world you are just beginning to enjoy the warmer weather and the brighter options for this time of year. Here are a few of my picks for the start of the warmer months.
My Lip colour of choice is the Too Faced Melted Lipstick in ‘Melted Candy’. This is a very pink based, warm toned colour with a slight amount of red as well. While it is quite bright it also has darker bases so it makes it a little more wearable. I feel like anyone could get away with this shade if you are feeling bold. These are also an amazing formula. They are long-wearing, creamy and not too drying. They have a semi matte finish but don’t look flat or dry either.
An oldie but a goody, the MAC Mineralize skin finish in ‘Soft and Gentle’, my holy grail highlighter and one of my top 10 that I would replace immediately if I lost it. This is a true champagne highlighter with a large amount of very finely milled shimmer that blends with the skin flawlessly. While anyone could use this colour it certainly looks the most natural on medium to fair skin tones.
My nail love of the moment is the Kit Nail Polish in ‘Bounce Back’. This is the perfect blend of mint and sea foam green with a whole lot of white to make it very neutral. This is a great one for lovers of pastels, mints or if you are a neutral nails person who just want’s to spice things up again. The Kit polishes are rich and creamy and extremely long wearing, one of my favourite polish formulas of all time.
I cannot go a few days without a good cat eye and the Stila Liquid liner is in my top picks for the best and easiest to use. The shade ‘Midnight’ is a deep navy blue that adds a little spice to a standard make up look. I love contrasting this with champagne or gold shadows to brighten up the whole look.
Finally we have the Stila Eyes are the Window shadow palette in ‘Soul’. This is a pretty perfect neutral palette that allows you to create a wide range of looks, but I love this palette for the mainly lighter shimmery shades that are both brightening and subtle at the same time. The shadows are extremely bendable and all compliment each other making it easy to never make a mistake.
