I freaking love spring!

Work mode is in full effect. I have so many exciting things going on, I leave work just to go home and work some more. The sunshine we’ve been having these last few weeks is doing wonders for me and my creativity. As soon as I can tell you about the things I’ve been working on, you know I will.

Later today I have a meeting and after that I’m meeting up with some friends for a drink. Therefore I incorporated my going out outfit with my work outfit.

Picnic in the Park

This is my makeup of the weekend. And I literally mean it, I wore it Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I mean I took it off at night and put it on every morning. I like my shades of pink and this look it super pretty for spring.

Sleek Catrice

I love spring, it’s my favorite season of the year. I like it less because of pollen and allergies. Yesterday I couldn’t understand the headache I was having. This morning I woke up with puffy eyes and then I got it, it’s allergy season.

To try to cover up the puffiness I did my makeup in a hurry before heading to work.

Chipmunk cheeks!!!

I’ve gotten the question about my cheeks quite a few times. What do I do and how do I contour. To be honest, I don’t! I don’t know how to contour that well…I just apply bronzer on my cheekbones. And they become defined like this. Of course it’s not all make up. It comes from my dads side of the family, my sister and a few of my cousins have them as well. Some more than others.

LOTD: London/Lillipop

While I was in London I picked up a Primark lipstick. I heard they were good and had to try it for myself. And at only £1.50, you can’t really go wrong. Yes, like any other lipstick out there you do have to re-apply throughout the day but other than it’s a great one. This is the matte long-lasting formula and it is exactly that. For me it lasts a long time and is matte. And what’s even better is that it’s not drying on me, at all.

The shade I’m wearing is Lollipop and it comes in three more shades. I only picked up the two different pink shades. There is also a red one as well as a nude. But, because I don’t really wear red lipstick and I already have a nude I’m happy with I didn’t pick up those. A decisions I’m regretting right now…

LOTD : Reflecting Bloom

IMG_5188

My lip combo today is Lumene Natural Code lipstick in the shade 3 Nude Beige with IsaDora Express Star gloss over it, it’s in the shade 54 Reflecting Bloom. I have the full size version but I like the travel size better because it’s easy to bring along for touch ups during the day.

 I want to tell you guys about this H&M lipstick that is amazing considering the price. It’s only 3.99 pounds but really great quality.

H&M came out with these matte lipsticks not to long ago and just last week I picked up the nude shade that goes by the name Beige/Bardot. I’m in love with it and I’m going to pick up at least one more shade, there are four.

You should check it out.
