Makeup Faves Spring 2018

This year seems to have whizzed by extremely quickly. It feels like it was just last week that I was home for Christmas soaking in the sun in beautiful Mwanza. It’s been about two and a half months since I got back and the semester is coming to an end so quickly. It’s already spring and the cold days are almost behind us, which I am extremely thrilled about. I am excited to share with you my makeup favourites for spring so far.

There have been a few makeup bits I have been loving lately, so I’ll go through them and explain why I’ve been loving them in this post.

Face:

The first thing would be foundation. I’ve been using the Tarté Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation for a while now and I feel like it is perfect for those days when I don’t want much coverage. Although the name claims the foundation gives full coverage, I would disagree with that. It is definitely not full coverage, but it is a great foundation for days where you are in a hurry to get out the door and still want something on your face. If you want more coverage, I would suggest using a concealer under the foundation to correct the areas necessary. A really great concealer is the Makeup Forever Ultra HD concealer.

Lips:

Moving on, I have been loving two shades of lipsticks. The first is Whirl by MAC Cosmetics and the second is Damson no. 425 by Burberry. The Burberry lipstick is one I reach for on brighter days when I want a pop of colour. Whirl however, is one I tend to reach for on greyer days or when I can’t decide what to put on. These non-matte lipsticks are great for this season as my lips are slightly more dryer than during the summer.

Cheeks:

An old makeup favourite of mine is this gorgeous BE MATTE BLUSH by City Color Cosmetics in the shade Fresh Melon. I received this blush a little while ago in one of my subscription boxes. It is extremely pigmented and the peachy shade looks amazing on my skin tone.

Eyes:

As for mascara, I have been loving Lancôme’s Hypnôse Drama Instant Dull Body Volume Mascara for many years now. It gives my lashes more length without making them look too clumpy. I also tend to fill in my brows on most days when I have the time using the Benefit Cosmetics ka-BROW – cream gel. I thought this product would be challenging to use, however it has really cut down the amount of time I spend on filling in my brows. Also, a little goes long way.
