spring/summer makeup look.

Hi everyone,
I know that it seems like summer is miles away, but it will come fast,really. I love summer, holidays and the beach. I do love winter and Christmas time, but now Christmas has come and gone and there are no decorations or gingerbread men, it is freezing, rainy and cold, I am just a bit sick of the cold weather and I am counting down the days until I can go on my summer holiday ( 160 exactly). Usually in the spring and summer time I like to go for natural looks.

I don't really wear foundation much, the only one I truly like is the Charlotte Tilbury one as this is very natural and you barely feel like your wearing foundation.This lets your skin breath, it isn't gloopy or sticky. But mostly in the summer, sometimes in spring I don;'t really wear foundation. I would really like to try others though as I haven't tried very many.
BB cream- No7

This is really nice, it is kind to skin, and gives a natural look. It is light to medium coverage and is a really nice consistency.
Concealer- Collection Lasting Perfection
Love this, I usually just go for this with no foundation or BB cream as it is full coverage and is amazing. I really want to try the tarte shape and tape, as lots of people say it is very good.
Powder- Rimmel London stay matte
I have talked about this loads- you guys know it is my fave. I would really like to try the bare minerals loose powder though as my friend Flossie ( pinkprincess555.blogspot.com ) has it and loves it.
Highlighter- Mac soft and gentle or makeup revolution highlight pallet. Love both of these, obviously MAC can be quite pricey so I love the makeup revolution one for a cheaper alternative. Going to be honest though, the highlight pallet isn't really a dupe of it. I sooooooooooo badly want to try the new benefit dandelion highlighter, but it is only available at Sephora at the moment, but I think it looks so amazing.
eye shadow- I always go for a natural shadow look, pinks or browns, I love all of the w7 pallets, Maybelline blushed nudes and makeup revolution.
eyeliner- Helen E
I love this, it is long wearing and really nice.
mascara- soap and glory
I love this mascara, it is 100% the best drugstore mascara I have ever tried. It gives volume and length to my lashes, it is never clumpy and looks amazing.
Bronzer- Benefit hoola. ( mini)
Everyone loves this, most people have it. I love how it is so natural. I only have the mini but I really wan't the full size. Cause I'm extra, I might get the personalised one.
Blush- benefit dandelion
I again have the mini of this, and again want the full size. It is really natural and pretty.
Lips- bare minerals liquid lipstick and Mac lipstick.
I have the bare minerals liquid lipstick in swag- I have talked about this loads on my blog, It is transfer proof, not that drying and a beautiful colour. Love this and I am definitely looking to buy more colours.
I actually really like the mac lipsticks, the one  I would pair the shade flamingo with this look as it is a beautiful, bright springtime colour and is a beautiful consistency.

Thankyou for reading
lots of love
