Spring Makeup (with some current favourites)


It was nice and sunny over a few days last week and I pretty much stuck to the same makeup combination. Light textures with a soft, subtle sheen.

I've been reaching for my Dior HydraLife tinted moisturizer almost every single day.
With the discovery of some oil-combatting products (REN clay cleanser and Boscia blotting sheets), my skin hasn't looked/felt as oily lately so I have been lovingggg this product.

It photographs amazingly, too, which doesn't hurt.
Here I'm wearing it set with Laura Mercier translucent powder, NARS Laguna Bronzer and NARS Madly blush.


On the lips I'm wearing Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy, mixed with YSL Rouge Volupte #7.
I can't wear that YSL lipstick by itself without looking creepy (it's just way too pale and doesn't work with my skin/hair colour at the moment), so combining it with Boy makes the most beautiful natural shade.


On the eyes I wore Tempting, Mulch and Texture eyeshadows by MAC, with Shu Uemura black painting eyeliner and Diorshow Extase mascara.

I hope you had an amazing weekend!
