Face of the day - soft spring daytime makeup.

Despite losing an hour of sleep over the weekend (weirdly enough it always affects me more than any type of jetlag) I am so excited for the start of spring. I am sure plenty of you are sick of my constant weather rambles so this is good news for you - I love spring so I am not going to complain!!

Here's the makeup I wore today, featuring some items I've had on heavy rotation as of late:

Cheesy poses aside, I wore Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation in the shade B20. I love this stuff. I initially thought it was breaking me out but it seems that it was a false alarm... it's so easy to work with and the finish is semi-matte and very natural. I strongly suggest asking for a sample if you're interested. I asked for samples of this on two separate occasions since the first time it broke me out really badly (or so it seemed) and I finally decided to purchase it. I can do a more in depth review of it if you are interested!

I put links to some of the items in case you were interested in checking them out!

Under the eyes: Armani Master Corrector shade #1, Dior Nude Concealer shade #2, Benefit Powderflage


Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer


NARS Madly


I set everything with MAC Careblend powder - not sure how I feel about it yet so I'll keep you updated.

Lips: Dior Addict lipstick in



Burberry Pale Barley eyeshadow

all over the lid (<3),

Bobbi Brown Hot Stone

in the outer corner

17 Liquid Liner and Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara (the regular version, also leaves me rather unimpressed).

I am SO in love with Pale Barley, it's so easy to work with and looks amazing even without a primer. I didn't wear a primer today, I am writing this post up a good 6 hours since applying my makeup and the eyeshadow is still kicking. Yay.

I hope the week is off to a great start for you!
