Spring Colour Pop Make Up...

I have been and will always be a neutral makeup up kinda gal, opting for bronzed tones on my lids, nude-pink glosses and barely there blush, that is until the sun started shining and these two bright beauties popped through my letter box.

The Eyes
Now the clocks have gone back and the days are getting longer, Summer is well and truly in sight. I am no stranger to the bright lip, but bright eye colours are way out of my comfort zone. The SS14 runways were awash with colour pop eyes, and not in the way that is reserved only for the runway, but in a way in which the average colour-phobe can pull off.

Additional products used: 17 Stay Time Long Wear Primer, Rimmel 25 Hour Lasting Finish Foundation, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. Bourjois Bronzing Primer, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, Becca Brow Powder*, W7 Golden Brown Palette*
I used the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Turquoise Forever* with my Urban Decay Shadow Brush to highlight the inner corners of my eyes and blending it out giving a softened look. Finishing off the eyes with a slick of Benefit They're Real and I had a look that would't look out of place at Coachella. The look is surprisingly wearable and I can definitely see myself reaching for this combination throughout spring, it just adds a little something!

The Lips
Corals and Oranges make more of an appearance on my lips throughout Spring, and this gorgeous Chunky Lips pencil from W7* in Spontaneous is no exception. The formula is really creamy but quite drying, so a slick of Blistex and Lush's Lips Scrub goes a long way with this product. It wears really nicely and the colour payoff is great. Amazing for just £2.49! The matte finish is really comfortable to wear and really compliments the turquoise in the eyes. It is a very similar shade to the Topshop Neon Rose Cream Blush which I paired with this look.

I was kindly sent these products by Xtras, an online beauty outlet stocking everything from hair extensions to perfume at great affordable prices. I was so surprised by the range of products they offer and the incredible quality of the products from W7, a brand I knew nothing about. I can't wait to try more of their products.

Much Love,
Lauran
