Make Up Bag: March 2015.

March is going to be all about simple, fresh looking make up. My skin isn't the best at the moment but I don't want to try and cover everything with heavy foundation and powder. Instead I would like to find a nice lightweight base (I'm thinking perhaps the NARS Tinted Moisturiser?) and not go too overboard with colour on my cheeks or lips. 

Sarah McNamara Tinted Sculpting Balm in Fresh Rose
This is something I've had in my collection for a little while and it deserves to be shown some love again. It's a really pretty, incredibly wearable neutral pink colour and the cream formula feels so light and looks really fresh on the cheeks.

Burt's Bees Lip Shine in Flutter
I'm not totally sold on the scent but the colour is incredibly beautiful and easy to wear. I can't wear lipstick anymore without looking much older than I am so glosses have become my new best friend. I especially like the squeezy tube, it doesn't look fancy or expensive but it's so convenient!

Max Factor FaceFinity All Day Primer
My skin has been really frustrating recently. Foundation never seems to sit nicely so I'll be incorporating this back into my daily make up routine again. It can sometimes feel a little heavy if I apply too much, but it really helps to smooth everything over.

February Recap.
» Illamasqua Unrequited is a pretty pale pink blush. Sometimes it's not the easiest colour to wear but I still like it.
» I'm happy to have finished the Rimmel ScandalEyes Retro Glam mascara, it takes forever to dry on my lashes.
» Lily Lolo glosses are possibly my very favourite and English Rose is a beautiful muted pink that I've enjoyed wearing.

Are you going to switch up your make up for spring?

  1. I like the Burts Bees glosses, they surprised me with how nice they are.
    I was on Feel Unique chucking stuff in my basket (although I know I'll have to take most of it out again haha) and I stuck a few Lily Lolo lip glosses in but the 10% discount code doesn't apply on them. :(

  2. I love Burt's Bees products, this colour gloss looks cute!

  3. I really really want to try Lily Lolo glosses!!!! <3

  4. I'm obsessed with this Max Factor primer, I use it almost on a daily basis, I just pop a bit of concealer& setting powder on top and I'm good to go :) Really like the look of Tinted Sculpting balm, haven't heard of it before :)

  5. I'm SO intrigued by the Sculpting Balm! I love cream blushers... but cream blusher in a stick? Even better! I got a Burt's Bees gift set for Christmas having never used anything from them before and I'm so impressed! The lip balm is fantastic x

  6. Such a fan of the Max Factor primer. I really need to remember to pick up another one! xx

  8. The gloss and balm are such pretty shades! I've never tried Burt's Bees, how I'm not entirely sure.

    Would the Max Factor primer work for oily skin types?


  9. I love trying primers. I wish I had Max Factor here x

  10. Wow quite a few products I'd love to put in my own bag, especially the Burt's Bees balm and the Max Factor primer.
