Spring time essentials ❤️

Well hello to you my reader chums! Blossoming trees and sunnier days, spring time has started early in the UK with some beautiful, bright weather. Spring is the season for bolder colours, fresh makeup and light-weight fashion so let's get into my essentials for this time of year.

Top beauty and fashion essentials for the spring

Lighter jackets

When the sun comes out, bid goodbye to the winter coats and branch out for lighter jacket season. Some of my favourite jackets I pull out in spring time; from a furry denim jacket to my beloved bright yellow raincoat, not having to wear too many layers is such a treat.

Body care 

It's no doubt when the warmer weather strikes, the spring fashion takes centre stage. This means legs are out and the good old hibernation of winter is over. Even though my skin is drier in the winter, I tend to moisturise my legs when its warmer as they'll be on show. My favourite product is the Soap and Glory 'Sugar Crush' butter cream as it sinks in quickly and has the most incredible, lingering scent of sweet limes.

Sunglasses

On sunnier days, whether you're going for a drive or walk in the park, a good pair of sunglasses a needed to keep the shine out your eyes and protect them from the blaring sun.

Makeup

For spring, the fresher makeup looks come into play. Dewy skin, rosy cheeks and pink lips are my staple choices. With the sun in the sky and nature blossoming, it's the season I wear quite natural makeup.

Highlight - A shining sun means every opportunity for your highlight to glow. I love to go a bit crazy on the highlight in spring to have those on fleek cheekbones. My favourite all time product to achieve this is the Sleek 'Solstice' palette. I usually use the cream shade first on the cheekbones, brow bones and cupids bow then go in with a powdered shade for the ultimate highlight.

Pink lipstick - I'm not a massive fan of pink lipsticks, however I love toned down dusky pinks or slight pink nudes. This is the season I branch out with pink tones. Nyx Cosmetics matte creams offer a wide range of these shades including 'Rome', 'Stockholm' and 'Cannes' which I alternate between.

Blush - I'm a massive fan of contouring, however when spring comes along, I think rosy cheeks and a subtle bronze suit better. Cream blushes I find give the most natural and glowing finish on the skin. My go to at the minute is Max Factor's cream blush in 'Soft Murano'. It's a very warm dark pink shade and provides a lovely flush to the cheeks.

Eye shadow stick - As I like more natural looks in the spring, I find eye shadow sticks to be a quick and simple to give that slight wash of colour on the lids. The stick pictured is by a European brand 3ina in a mauve toned grey.

I hope you enjoyed my spring time essentials. What are yours?

  4. Denim jackets are literally my go-to's for the summer months. I always find them really easy to style too. That sleek highlighter palette is one of my favourite also, it's so pigmented!

  7. Omg yasss!! It's denim jacket time! I agree with all of these (although I haven't yet mastered the contour) I have so many floral coloured eyeshadow sticks that I bought over winter but haven't had the right spring vibe to wear them yet. It would be good to see some looks you do! X

  8. Such a fab post, I love spring! I really need to invest in a denim jacket though, as I agree, they are perfect for this time of year, and I love the fur detailing on your jacket! I'll be sure to check out Sugar Crush by Soap and Glory too, as it looks amazing!
