Spring Style #2014bloggerchallenge

Hey Guys,

This weeks #2014bloggerchallenge theme is all about spring style, I originally planned to do an outfit of the day but after watching Tanya Burrs Spring get ready with me video (watch here) I got very inspired to try something completely new with my spring make up and a new kind of post, I have never done a #FOTD or anything like this before.
The British weather has been amazing recently so we are actually having very warm spring days so I have been off college feeling very summery making smoothies and reading in the garden.

In Spring I tend to use mostly pinks a pink lipstick and blush are essential for me.
I tend to stay away from corals because they tend to suit more tanned skin tones.

I have been experimenting more and more with countering recently and for this look I brought in a bronze shimmer block. I am not very confident using bronzer because I am so pale and I hate looking unnatural. So I used an angled blush brush and applied a very small amount of powder to my cheekbones, then using a kabuki brush I blended it like blusher and brought it up towards my forehead.

I loved the bright daring blue look on Tan's eyes in her video however im not even sure she pulled it off quite right so I decided to blend more and not put in quite as deep into my inner corner or the eye for a more subtle blue effect.

For my outfit I stuck with my blue and coral make up by wearing a blue and white stripe top...oohh how nautical  and this adorable daisy necklace.

In the summer I want a much lighter coverage and because I was going to be using so much bronzer I decided not to use any foundation.

This lip stain was another one of my so called 'damaged product' finds for only £1. My post on finding amazing products for only £1 just like this lip stain.

An old palate from Claire's that I have had for years and never used but the bright blue was perfect for this look.
