Spring is my favorite time of the year. It is sunny, bright and chirpy – the perfect balance between the cold and hot months. During these months, I keep my makeup pretty light with pops of bright colors. This spring, I am totally in the mood for soft pinks and peaches. A couple of weeks ago, I shared my top drugstore lipsticks for spring, and in today’s post I’ll be sharing my spring beauty routine. Most days, I keep it really simple with some eyeliner and lip balm. But on days when I am in the mood for more, here is a simply routine that works for me. 
For the base I keep it really light by using the Bare Minerals original powder foundation. This is the first powder foundation I have tried and I have to say, I quite like the super-light texture. It gives a soft airbrush finish with great coverage and doesn’t look patchy or cakey at all. Then for the eyes, I have been absolutely loving the Laura Mercier caviar stick in the shade Copper. Oh my, these sticks have a brilliant formula, and all you need is just one swipe on the eyelids. It is super easy to blend and last a long time even without a primer. I follow this up with my Urban decay 24/7 eyeliner in the shade Zero and curl my lashes with my Shu Uemura curlers.
For the lips, I love Charlotte Tilbury’s lip liner in Pillow talk – it is the perfect pink nude and matches my natural lip color perfectly. Most days I leave it at that as it looks gorgeous on its own, but on some days when I want to go a little bold, I love the NARS audacious lipstick in the shade Audrey. This is such a pretty classy magenta pink shade and is perfect for wear throughout the year. It also doubles as a lovely cream blush for the cheeks with a subtle and pretty pop of pink. That’s it, I just finish off with a spritz of my Bombshell perfume from Victoria secret which is a fresh floral scent, perfect for this time of the year.

This all together just takes me about 5 minutes – Super quick, easy and good to go!
