My Everyday Spring Makeup

Happy Sunday, everyone! Loving the sunshine today and I went and did a bit of shopping today, which just lifted my mood even more! Yesterday I posted a new YouTube video, showing my everyday look for this spring/summer. The key is light and easy here, as during the summer I'd rather spend my time outdoors rather than in and getting ready.



For foundation, I've been loving Maybelline's Dream Nude Airfoam foundation in 200 Creamy Natural. I actually reviewed this product! The review can be found here: Maybelline Airfoam Review. Overall, the product is a really nice light coverage foundation, perfect for spring.

To powder, I use my trusty Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder in Universal. This powder is perfect for everyone and I absolutely love it. The package comes with a lot of product and definitely worth the money!

For blush, I use Tarte Amazonian Clay in Dollface, a really pretty pink blush with absolutely great pigmentation.

To contour, I use my NARS Laguna Bronzer, which is so pretty. Personally, to contour I use my Real Techniques Blush Brush, and the contour turns out great! I run the bronzer through the hollows of my cheeks, up my temples, and along the jaw line.

A nice highlight, I use MAC's Mineralized Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle along the tops of my cheekbones and just above the upper lip.

Finally, I like to throw on my NARS lipgloss in Baby Doll, a really pretty, shiny, and shimmery pink.



Moving onto my eyes, I love using my Urban Decay Primer Potion to ensure that the eyeshadow will stay on all day. I then use my favorite Stila Smudge Pot in Kitten and apply it all over the lid. Over that, I put on MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow in Summer Haze, which is so pretty!! To finish up the eyes, I'll apply my favorite eyeliner, which is YSL's Cream Eyeliner (a review can be found here: YSL Review). Then, to my waterline I apply the Tarte EmphasEYES inner rim brightener, which is so pretty and perfect. It's much better than a stark white eyeliner, and still widens your eyes. For mascara, I use Clinique's Bottom Lash Mascara and Maybelline's Falsies.

And that is it! My everyday look. I hope you guys enjoy and I'll see you tomorrow!
