A Lightweight Base for Spring

IMG_0853

I’m introducing spring up here on the blog as you might have noticed from my fashion edit, an introduction to my favorite color at the moment and now I’m showing you my current base. I like to keep everything looking super natural, fresh and dewy.

As you might recall from my foundation fails post, I really did not get along with the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation at all, but gave it a second shot about a few weeks ago and have been LOVING it since then. I really don’t know what changed but all of a sudden I really enjoy the light to medium coverage, dewy finish and longevity of this foundation. I like the scent, I like how it doesn’t make my forehead super oily after a long day and I like how it photographs. Ok that’s it – end of rave.

I’ve also really been liking the Instant Age Rewind Concealer by Maybelline lately, the spongey application blends the product super well, and even though it might not be the most hygienic, it really gets the job done. I usually like to apply a little dusting of Rimmel Stay Matte powder just down my T-zone to avoid shininess and then carve out my cheekbones with the Sleek Contour Kit. The Bobbi Brown blusher in Peony you will have seen on this blog about a thousand times but I really like the hint of pink it adds to my cheeks, somehow I feel like that makes my blue eyes pop a bit more?

New to my collection is the Bobbi Brown eyebrow gel that comes with a little wand applicator. I use this in the shade mahogany and let me tell you – this keeps your brows where they’re supposed to be! This is great for setting your brows and coat the single hairs in product, however, if you do have slight irregularities and gaps in your brows you’re gonna wanna use a pencil underneath. After I sadly ran out of my Anastasia Brow Wiz I turned back to my MAC Eyebrow pencil in Fling.

To finish off this natural look, I give my eyelashes about two thin coats of the Maybelline Colossal mascara in dark brown.
