This month I’ll be bringing out some brighter, warmer hues, but the true brights will be saved for the summer months. Hourglass ambient lighting blush in diffused heat, a gorgeous warm peachy coral and the Max factor creamy blush in soft rose will take the top spots for blush of choice. Bronzer will also be whipped out, and the Topshop bronzer in Mohawk is seriously impressing me lately with its warm yet not orange colour, which is perfect for bronzing and contouring in one.
Some brighter lippies will be making an appearance too, in the form of peaches – not too bright for the colder days, but still warm weather appropriate. The Revlon colourburst lacquer balm in tease is a lovely throw choice if I’m wanting something with more of a punch as it’s a lovely muted peachy red. If I’m wanting something more suitable for whipping on without too much thought, then the Topshop sheer lipstick in swirl will be brought out, as its creamy peachy colour is subtle enough to throw on without looking, but still gives you a tint to brighten up the face.
Finally, base and eyes. For eyes, I’ll be adorning some bronze shades, with more of a sheer golden twist. Mac amber lights is the perfect option to brighten up the eyes with a sheer wash of warm gold. My base will mostly be made up of the Laura Mercier foundation primer in protect and the Nars pure radiant tinted moisturiser, as both offer SPF 30 broad spectrum protection to protect me from any sun we may experience. (although there is not likely to be much here in England!)
There we have it, a round up of the products I expect to be using over the month. We’ll see in my favourites if I stick to this or find myself using other products…
