The Barely There Spring Makeup Look

Switching up my makeup routine is something I love to do when the seasons change. Spring is pretty much here 90% of the time here in the UK, the weather still can't seem to make up its mind, so on the warmer days that we have been lucky enough to get, I have been leaning towards a more natural fresh glowy look. This look is perfect for when I'm not feeling like wearing a ton of makeup, as it's so natural however still looks like you've put in a little bit of effort. 

Also, before we delve into this post, I'm so sorry for not posting as regularly in April. I've been so busy spending time with my boyfriend whilst he was home for Easter, and not to mention kick-starting my final semester of my first year at university with some oh so fun assignments. In just under two months I will be free for the summer, and I can't wait to start posting more regularly then, so just hang in there! 

So, for my base, I have been adoring the No7 Triple Protection Tinted Moisturiser in Fair. This product is absolutely gorgeous and so beautifully hydrating it's unreal. Even though I'm a brush gal all the way when it comes to applying foundation, I find that this product works so much better when applied with my fingers, as it just blends so much more seamlessly and I can really work it in to get a natural, glowy finish. It helps to even out my skin tone, however still lets some of my natural complexion show through, helping the look to stay fresh and effortless. 

Bronzing and highlighting are both musts in my makeup routine. To add some structure and to generally bronze up my skin, I use my Benefit Hoola Bronzer, which, as you are probably aware, I absolutely adore. It blends so nicely into the skin and is the perfect shade to give the appearance of a natural tan. For highlighting, I use Benefit High Beam. A liquid highlighter like this is perfect for this sort of look, plus it's the most beautiful pearly pink shade and gives such an amazing dewy glow to the cheekbones. 

To keep it natural, I use an eyebrow pencil to lightly fill in my brows. The one I have is the Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel, which is great to give a little bit of shape to the brows without going all out. For my lashes, I use one of my favourite mascaras, which is the Maybelline Great Lash BIG Mascara in Blackest Black. This mascara lasts so well on my lashes and really makes my lashes look amazing, trust me. 

To finish the look, I use the Revlon Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya - massive throwback to when there was a huge hype over these! I personally still really like the lip butters, I only own two, but I think the formula is so lovely. They are, as the name suggests, buttery soft and so nourishing, making them perfect for this look. This shade is a gorgeous sheer peachy pink, which is perfect for spring and adds a great pop of colour to the lips, whilst still keeps things looking natural. 

What makeup are you wearing this spring? Are you into a 'barely there' makeup look for spring and summer?

  4. Lovely post, Hannah!!! I love the sound of the No7 Tinted Moisturiser. I've been looking for a tinted moisturiser to wear in the warmer months, as it's more of a lighter base but still gives a bit of coverage xx

    1. Aw thank you Lauren! It's so great, and you're right, it's so nice to wear just to even up the skin but doesn't feel heavy or cakey at all! Perfect for spring and summer xo

  6. I love "barely there" looks for spring and summer! There's nothing worse than having tons of makeup on and feel it melting off halfway throughout the day. I've been skipping foundation and concealer lately since they just feel a little heavy but I would love to try out the no7 tinted moisturiser.

    I've also been using the Rimmel brow pencil lately, it's super basic but does the job!

    1. Me too! It's so nice to feel fresh and natural :) You should definitely try the tinted moisturiser, it feels so light on the skin, so it sounds perfect for you if you don't want anything that feels too heavy! xo

  12. Loving the post! I've been meaning to try the Maybelline Great Lash for months now, but I have this thing where I don't want to buy another makeup product until I've finished the one I'm using (strange I know). How much do you recommend that brow pencil? I've also been on the search for a brow product that fills in my dark brows enough so that it doesn't need other makeup products to balance it out. They can look kind of heavy sometimes, haha! xx
