Get Ready With Me: Springtime Look

Hi everyone! I uploaded my first ever Get Ready With Me video a few days ago and I thought that I would do an accompanying blog post explaining a bit more about the products I used. Check out the video below....

I started with Skin Doctors Gammy Hydroxy Cream which I am completely obsessed with and couldn't recommend enough (See my blog post about it here) I use it twice a day and it evens out my skin tone amazingly...

Then I followed with Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, I'm not crazy about primers as all the ones I have used in the past haven't been great but if I feel I do need a primer, I use this one (Check out my post about it here)

Next I applied my foundation. Because I wanted a slightly more tanned look, I used Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse in Nude (021)

For my cheeks I used the Clinique Shimmering Tones Powder in Shimmering Berries (01)
This powder has the prettiest collection of colours and is absolutely perfect for spring, the packaging is also amazing and looks great in my makeup bag!

For eyeshadow, I used my Clinique Colour Surge Eyeshadow Quad in Spicy (102) and I used the second colour in to cover my whole eyelid and then contoured with the first and third colours.

I lined the top of my lash line with Models Co Eyeliner in Black (01), leaving my lower lash line clear.

Then, I applied two coats of Model Co Fibre Lastxtend Mascara in Extreme Black. I love this mascara because on the other side there is a built in mirror which comes in very handy!

For my lips, I lined them with Lancome lip liner in Rose The and filled them in with Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Vintage Pink which has been featured in my monthly favourites. I love this colour for spring as it's not too dark.

After finishing my make up, I used my Remington Keratin Therapy Pro Volume Brush (See my review here) to add a bit of volume to my hair which only took about five minutes. I added some volume at the roots and then also at the ends of my hair.

For my nails, I applied Seventeen Lasting Fix Nail Polish in Mint Choc Chip as a base and then, once it was dry, I applied Seventeen Colour Clash Nail Effects in In The Surf on the top. I just picked it up last week in Boots and so far, I'm pretty impressed.

For my outfit, I wore my new Boohoo swing dress which I bought last week. I accessorized with a selection of jewellery from New Look and Matalan and added my ankle boots from TU.
