The Spring Eyes Edit.


Here we are with another part of my Spring Makeup Series. I love a glowy base but your eye makeup can totally transform your look. From a natural and fresh day look to a smokey and sexy night look, eyes are the most powerful part of every look.

Of course, there are a million of different spring looks for your eyes but I like to keep it simple and fresh. I am personally not a big fan of glitter on my eyes (besides that eyebrow highlight.. YESSS). So the base for my eyelid is always pretty matte and neutral toned. For that, I like to use the Lancome Aquatique Base in 02 Beige Porcelaine. I actually use it all over my lids without any shadow on top. This product is waterproof and really doesn't move at all. I can imagine it being amazing under a shadow as well! I just really like that polish and natural look it gives.

For the ultimate fresh eye look, there is one thing that is way more important than your eyeshadow colour: the concealer! I have recently discovered the best duo to give me that "10 hours of beauty sleep"-look. 

The First step is a smoothing primer. For my under eyes especially I like to use the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Blur Primer. Not only is the packaging to die for.. I mean seriously have you ever seen something prettier? But I just love the smoothing effect it has. I don't know if it makes your concealer last longer as mine is already pretty long lasting but I feel like it helps the concealer to sit right and also minimises any fine lines and pores. Obsessed!

As my concealer, I use the Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer in 01 Light. I was always a bit scared of this concealer because as we all know the Double Wear Foundation is pretty heavy and full coverage. I love it but as a concealer, I thought it might be too much and could look very unnatural. But this one is so perfect. The only similarity to the foundation is the coverage. It gives me the most flawless under eyes but the consistency is so creamy and light.. such a dream. On those days where I want to brighten up my under eye area even more, the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat is my secret weapon. I highly recommend the slightly pinky shade in 01 Luminous Ivory as this is the most illuminating one. On its own it doesn't give me enough coverage but of course, this varies from person to person.. 

Last but not least false lashes are a total must for a flirty spring look. My lashes of choice are the Ardell Demi Wispies. I have been using them for years and I can just say that they give the most natural look. Also they are budget friendly and of great quality. 

What is your must have when it comes to a spring eye look?

  5. I need to try the concealer! I always stay away from it as I just don't get on with the foundation as my skin is dry! Definitely think I need to give it a go.
