Fresh spring time make up look

Hey everyone,

I am super nosey and I love seeing everyones looks for the day so I thought I'd post my take today.

I decided to go for a turquoise/teal look to compliment my natural eye colour with coral lips. Please excuse my scruffy eyebrows, a tidy up wax will be had very soon!

Products used were:

Contour: Revlon Bronzer in 02 Sunkissed Bronze. Please check out the link, I think this is so cute. There is a little mirror which pops out at the side (I'm all about the gimmicks!)

Highlight: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Blonde and a dab of Clinique Up-Lighting Liquid Illuminator in 01 Natural . The skinfish was recommended by fellow make up girlies on Twitter and it's fantastic. I now also highly recommend.

Blush: Maybelline Pure Blush Mineral Powder Blush in 40 Quartz Peach . Lollipop26 recently recommended the Maybelline blushes and now firmly on the bandwagon too!

Concealer: Collection 200 Illuminating Touch in 1 Naked and MAC Studio Stick Concealer in NC20

Eye shadows: MAC Shade Stick in Lilac (I got this in Paris ages ago, it doesn't look like it is still available on the MAC website), MAC Frost Phloof!, Barry M Dazzle Dust in 10, Giorgio Armani 51

Eye liners: No7 Metallics Eyes Pencil 01 Green, Clarins 04 Turquoise (limited edition). I adore this No7 eyeliner. It's highly pigmented, soft and very easy to blend. It works really well with a smudger brush. It's £6.70 I think but with the £5 off vouchers at Boots at the moment it's definitely a great buy. They have some other gorgeous metallic colours and I also have the navy one which is fab too!

Mascara: Lancome Definicils and L'Oreal Voluminous both in Black

Lipgloss: L'Oreal Glam Shine Candy Juice 224

Tools of the trade for eyes: shu uemura eyelash curler, Mister Mascara eyebrow groomer, MAC 230 shader brush, MAC 224 blending brush, MAC 208 liner brush, square edged brush from Marks & Spencer (this came in a Christmas gift set), Gosh smudger brush.

Tools of the trade for face: MAC 168 blush and contour brush, Autograph foundation brush, Clarins buffer brush (limited edition).

This is my first post of this type so I'd really appreciate any comments or feedback.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Mummy, if you are reading this, I love you!!!
