Spring Makeup Tips!

Spring makeup tips…Let’s get a fresh glow because the sun’s out!

Spring Look!

I felt the sun on my skin on my dog walk this morning (yes I had already applied SPF30) & when I got home I wanted to create a fresh makeup for you.

So here you go! It’s easy and simple and importantly I created it to make me feel, shall I say, ‘youthful’!

I focused on giving my face both lift, life and a healthy glow.

Colours blended well
Lip Balm used on centre of lips and on ‘apples’ of the cheeks

Lips were outlined before applying Wanderlust Lipstick and then Balm. to the centre.

Here’s what I used:

@code8beauty beauty balm n10 on my skin applying with a foundation brush lightly over my face

@code8beauty Day to Night foundation n05 as concealer applied with my fingers and tapped in under the eyes and where I had any discolouration

@code8beauty Bronze In East Hampton on my cheeks -high under cheekbones and in a sweep around outer hairline, tapped in and blended well.

@code8beauty Arch Realist in Light on my brows – applied with light strokes to mimic hairs, ending on the outside just above an angle from the corner of the eye and nose (Hold a brush against the tip of your nose to the outside of the eye for this.)

@code8beauty Iconoclast eye shadow palette in Jaipur Marbles colours applied with a fluffy brush and blended well. Apply colour just above the crease line to create life.

@code8beauty Lash Sophisticate Black Mascara applied to upper lashes only concentrating on the outer edges

@ariane.poolecosmetics Mineral Illuminating Pen on brow bone and cheekbones applied to outer side of upper cheekbone from the iris outwards

@studio10makeup Perfecting Lip Liner

@code8beauty Colour Brilliance Sculpting Lipstick in Wanderlust

@code8beauty Am/Pm Lip Balm in Chameleon

      Thank you. That’s funny! I was walking our dog at St Agnes Beacon this morning and thinking about you – wondering how you are doing. I hear Pete is retiring. That will be lovely to have more time to spend together. I hope we might be able to get together soon – maybe for a little walk of a coffee. xx
