a spring time makeup look!

Start with your daily foundation and concealer, i use No7's Beautifully Matte foundation in 'Calico' and buff it in with a RT Buffing Brush, and for concealer i use the one and only Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer in 'fair'.

Next fill in your eyebrows lightly, i use No7's Beautiful Eyebrow pencil in Dark Brown. Use tiny strokes to fill in and shape the eyebrows to mimic the look of hairs, then use the spool side to brush through the eyebrows afterwards.

Next set your foundation and concealer, i use Rimmel's Stay Matte powder (the best powder ever in my opinion) with a RT contour brush to fit in areas such as the under eye area perfectly! Then add some colour to your face with some blush, i'm using Natural Collections blush in 'Sweet Cheeks' applied with a RT Blush brush. Lightly place the blush on the high points of the cheeks for a natural looking flush!

Next it's time for eyes! I'm not using an eye primer for this look as it looks more natural and softer if you just use the shadows without a base. First i take 'Naked' all over the eye with a RT base shadow brush, then i take 'Sidecar' and place it on the outer half of the lid with the same brush. Next i take 'Buck' with the same brush again and place it on the very outer corner and in the crease, i then blend it out with the E.L.F Blending brush. Then i use a pencil brush and place 'Hustle' in the crease and on the lower lashline.

Finally for the lashes i use the Maybelline 'The Falsies Flared' to bump up the volume and length of my lashes, then i go over the top to comb through the lashes to get rid of clumps with 'No7's Extreme Length' on the top lashes and the bottom as well. Then for lips i use No7's 'Mulberry' to add a nice bit of colour on the lips, that is noticeable but not as crazy as a red lip!

And there have the results! I think it's a great look for spring and summer as it's quick and easy and looks lovely for day time wear, if you find the foundation and concealer combo to heavy you can always switch it out with a BB Cream or a tinted moisture riser for a lighter coverage!
