Shopping the Stash | Spring Edit

It's so exciting that Spring is finally here; whilst i love Autumn (not so much winter) it's nice to see flowers start to bloom and hopefully soon the sun will start to shine! Now i love the bold, dark make up tones that come out during Autumn/Winter and no doubt i will continue to wear them but i decided to have a little shop through my collection and pick out some 'Spring Items' to use throughout Spring.

During Spring i much prefer wearing lighter make up; one of my favourite bases for that is the Inika Loose Mineral Foundation - It's so light on the skin and even though it's a powder it surprising the coverage it gives - if I'm feeling like it's not going to cut and I'm going to want more coverage then i apply some concealer first and then buff the foundation in after and this gives the perfect, light base.

I'm absolutely obsessed with the Nars Laguna Bronzer which is in my Nars Virtual Domination Cheek Palette - it's such a stunning bronzer' i love wearing this and find it so easy to contour with or to warm up my face and it's just beautiful. I also really like the Sex Fantasy Blush from this palette but for Spring i really want to try the Sleek Blush in Life's a Peach. I've not actually used this blush yet but as the name suggests it's a peach shade and i feel like this is going to be perfect for Spring.

I really want to use my Sleek Solstice Highlighter Palette more during Spring as it's been a little neglected since i got my hands on the Make Up Obsession one but i feel like it'll be perfect especially the shade Equinox as it has a slight peach tone to it -- are you noticing the peachy theme here?

I'm quite predictable when it comes to eyeshadow as i tend to stick to the same colour palettes of nudes, browns and golds but i want to try something different and use the pink tones of the Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette, I've had this for ages and i really like it but i don't use it as much as my other palettes so i really want to play around and experiment with it more this season.

For Lips, i change my lip colour all the time but there are two particular ones that I'd like to try and wear during spring. First up, is the Lancome Juicy Shake in Apri-Cute - now I've not actually used this yet but it's a very peachy toned orange shade, i have swatched it and it appears to be quite sheer so i feel like it'll be a nice everyday shade that will require quite minimal effort.

I also want to wear the Barry M Matte Me Up Liquid Lip Paint in Pop Up - this is a really beautiful pink toned cherry red. I've not worn a bold pink lip in a very long time but i think this colour is gorgeous an i really want to get some wear out of it. I think it'll be really lovely with a simple eye!

So those are some of the items I'm hoping to introduce into my Spring make up routine.
What products will you be trying during Spring?

  1. I'd totally forgotten about NARS Laguna, since I smashed it I just never re-purchased but I think I may have to this year!

  2. Fab post, sweet! That highlighter palette looks flippin' gorgeous! I definitely need to invest in one as I just use a white eyeshadow at the minute :/

  3. I love shopping my stash, it is nice to discover some old favourites. The INIKA Foundation is one of my favourites. It gives such a flawless finish & if I want more of a full coverage I will use it on top of a liquid foundation.
