Spring has Sprung: Makeup Tutorial.

This morning when I woke, I really noticed just how much spring is in the air. Whilst it's still noticeably chilly out, the sun is shining and the days are starting to get longer. And I for one cannot wait! I'm so bored of the jumper / jeans combo and since I've recently been buying some absolute gems for spring / summer, all I want is for the weather to warm up adequately so I can wear them! 

Today, to celebrate actually being able to see the sky, I thought I'd put together a really pretty makeup look for springtime. During the warmer months I tend to stray away from my trusty bronze eye and red lip combo in favour of something a little more pastel.  

For my base makeup I'm still wearing my usual staples which you can check out here with a Chanel blush in 060. Like I said, soft pastels are my thing for spring / summer. 

Now for the eye look. The main product I'm using is this stunningly beautiful Max Factor Masterpiece Eyeshadow in the shade Star Dust which to me that sounds more like a grey toned shadow. In reality this is an amazing creme product half way between a light blue and a silver. The pigmentation is incredible and I would highly recommend. Max Factor isn't really a brand I reach for that often however I can't get over how good this is! For a highlight I'm using a champagne colour by No7 and Benefit's High Beam to accentuate my brow bone. For the crease colour I've added just a touch of the warm chocolate brown shade from my No7 trio. 

In terms of eyeliner I've used my gold Maybelline eyeliner which unfortunately I couldn't find to link. I do like this product however personally I think I could probably find better as the colour isn't as bold or as easy to apply as I'd like. Nonetheless I love love love gold eyeliner for the summer time - it's so beautiful! 

Of course I'm pairing this with my Charlotte Tilbury Feline Flick Eyeliner and my beloved Chanel mascara. The lipstick shown above is my Tom Ford, in the shade 'Colin'.

Thank you guys for reading and I hope you're as excited for spring as I am!!
