I picked up this foundation a while back and didn't really use it throughout the winter however the slight shimmer in the mix and the added benefits of the SPF 15 I picked this up a couple of weeks back and have begun using it again. It's easy to use, with a pump dispenser however I do find that it clings to any dry patches.
On my cheeks I have been wearing MUA's £1 powered blush in Bon Bon. This, for the amount it cost, is amazing. High pigmentation, easy to blend and a gorgeous coral toned pink - although it is described as being apricot on the website. I would highly recommend spending a quid and checking these out, especially if you are on a tight budget.
Under my eyes to brighten them up I have been wearing the Nip+Fab CC Eye Fix. This is a twist and brush applicator (much like some lip glosses) and is great for those days when sleep has not happened. It also smells amazing! I picked this up in TK Maxx and I would really recommend having a browse as they always have great finds hidden away!
I recently bought the MUA (a slight trend here - can you tell I'm a student?!) Matte Palette off of a blog sale, but I think in shops it is around £4 - which is still amazing for 10 matte shades. My two favourite are the ones on the left of the bottom row (Penny and Chino) - the lighter shade is perfect for everyday wear and can be added to with the darker shade for night time. These aren't exceptionally pigmented but for what they are worth the colours are great.
My mascara at the moment is the Super Lash by Seventeen. With spring looks I prefer to tone down my mascara with a black/brown instead of pure black as I feel it softens the eyes. I picked this up during the 3for2 offer at Boots and have so far enjoyed it, although I do find it is very clumpy.
On my lips I have been wearing another blog sale purchase, this time in the shape of a Topshop lipstick. This shade is Pillow Talk and is a very barbie but softer shade of pink. I love light and bright lipsticks in the spring/summer and this fits perfectly.
So there is my budget(ish) spring makeup look.
What have you been wearing recently? I would love any suggestions!
