My Spring Makeup

Just a quick post on the makeup I've been loving and wearing most days this Spring. This look is quick and easy and takes me no time at all. I use a tinted moisturiser instead of a foundation to keep the look natural and appropriate for day time. Also, I apply an SPF under my makeup - this is very important!

  • After moisturising, I apply Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunblock (I bought this from the US and it's not available in Australia, but Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock is also good.) 
  • Next I apply a spritz of MAC Fix+ to hydrate and refresh my skin.
  • To help my makeup stay put during the hotter weather I use Laura Mercier Primer as a base.
  • I then apply a pea sized amount of Laura Mericer Tinted Moisturiser (I use the shade Nude) and dot it over my face, blending it in with a Real Techniques Buffing Brush
  • Next, I apply Garnier Anti-Dark Circles Roll-On under my eyes and blend it in with my ring finger (I alternate this with Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer.
  • I use Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer on any blemishes.
  • I keep my face from looking shiny as the day wears on, by lightly dusting Maybelline Dream Matte Powder over my face, focusing on my T-zone with my Real Techniques Powder Brush.
  • I then apply Benefit Dandelion to the apples of my cheeks with a Real Techniques Blush Brush.
  • Then, I curl my eyelashes with my MAC Eyelash Curler (not pictured) and apply Benefit Bad Gal Lash Mascara.
  • Finally, I spritz my face with MAC Fix+ again to set my makeup and I'm done! 


  1. i love the MAC Fix+ it is amazing! i will have to try the real techniques brushes i keep hearing such great things!

    1. You must try real techniques! They sell them in Priceline if you want to have a look, but they are much cheaper to get off iHerb!
