Face Facts: Easy, Everyday Spring Look

I've decided I'm definitely going to need to get a proper camera/tripod system going on.  It is so hard to not go bog eyed when I'm taking photographs of myself this close, haha. know the morning, I like to have maximum sleep time which ultimately means getting ready in the morning is quite a rush.  I've been aiming to get my make up Spring ready and this is what I've been opting for the past few weeks.

Every Day Spring Make Up Tutorial

For my base, I kept it light and hoped for some radiance from the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation, and used the Maybelline Eraser Eye concealer to brighten under my eyes and lightly conceal any redness.  I really have been quite liking this concealer, but do think I need something with a bit more coverage for concealing blemishes.  I also have found that it needs to be set, and for that I have rediscovered my Bourjois Java Rice Powder.  I used this under my eyes, and also across the tops of my cheek bones, a little down my nose and a touch across my forehead.  It's got a touch of shimmer to it, but it's not at all glittery; it just gives a light and lift to the skin.  I also think that the loose powder helps to blur my skin.  But, looking back, I might not go for the forehead next time seeing as I have oily skin and micro shimmer to there won't be doing me any favours up there.

On my cheeks, I used the Bourjois Cream Blush in Pink Sunwear - another rediscovery from my collection!  It's a lovely bronze shade, which isn't metallic or shimmery, but it's not matte either.  I think it's a great way of adding some colour to the skin and definition to the cheeks without having to use a bronzing powder.  I quickly combed through my sparse brows with Benefit's Gimme Brow Gel.

Another collection rediscovery was the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette.  I absolutely love the left hand side, and used the eyelid shade and the definer shade for this look.  The eyelid shade is a gorgeous rosy/copper shade with shimmer that looks amazing when it reflects the light.  I think it really helps to open and further brighten my eyes.  I just applied this with my finger and blended it out with a clean finger.  I then lined my eyes with the definer shade using The Body Shop's Eyeshadow Brush.  For my mascara, I used the Rimmel Extra 3D Lash Mascara to give some length and lift to my lashes.  Finally, I used MAC's See Sheer lipstick to add some subtle colour to my lips.

Have you tried any of these products?  What are your Spring make up picks?
