As it’s officially spring, I wanted to share with you all the contents of my March makeup bag. It’s the season of pink lipsticks, orange cut creases and peachy blush (not that you can’t rock all of this whatever the season, you do you). I’ve got a few new additions, and a couple of old favourites, and I would love to share them with you.
This has got to be my favourite highstreet foundation at the moment and I am loving it. It’s super lightweight so it’s great for the days I just want minimal coverage, but it’s also buildable without looking cakey (mm, cake). I usually pick up this foundation in the shade 220, but as I am currently still a bit tan from India (I know right, still?!) I mix in a bit of Estee Lauder Double Wear (in the shade Cashew) which works really well when I want to go for a full coverage look. This is definitely my ride or die foundation right now, and I’ve stocked up quite a bit, you gotta do what you gotta do.
When I first swatched this blusher, the first thought that came to my mind was, ‘Orgasm’… I mean NARS, orgasm (seriously guys). The Hot Mama Blusher is a complete dupe of NARS, Orgasm, but a fraction of the price. I have used both blushers and I can tell you that there is no difference. I love the Hot Mama blusher, it’s nice and shimmery, and it gives you a gorgeous peachy/pinky glow. Plus look at the packaging, doesn’t it just make you want to go on a vacay?
I was watching a makeup tutorial by Kaushal Beauty and she uses this palette as a part of her look, and it was so beautiful that I just couldn’t resist buying this palette. This palette has 5 beautiful colours to play around with, from pretty peaches/pinks to coppery orange. There’s also matte finishes as well as a more shimmery option. You’ve basically got it all. You can even use these blushes to create some amazing eye looks too (watch Kaushal’s tutorial on how to do that).
I’ve been using No7 Lipsticks for years, and I absolutely love them. There are so many colours to choose from, I mean I could spend all day trying to decide which lipstick (or three) I want. I bought two new shades recently which are so perfect for spring, and I find myself reaching for them all the time. They’re really long lasting and have quickly become favourites of mine. If you’re looking for a creamy, super rich colour then these lipsticks are a great option.
I hope you guys enjoyed reading my current favourites for March, let me know what you’re loving at the moment in the comments down below.
