Guest Post // Spring Look (Eyes, Lips and Nails)


Hi to all of Shona's readers!

If you don't know me, I'm Megan. I have a blog called theBeautyPier and I jumped at the chance when Shona wrote a post saying she might need guest posters. So, here I am today!

I decided I wanted to do a post on a look we could all do for Spring, in terms of eyes, lips and nails. I don't know about you, but I am desperate for Spring to show itself so I can go out with my peachy lips and pale blue nails!
Firstly, eyes! The eye look you will see is very neutral, as you don't want to over do it with the bright lips and nails.

EYES





I USED...
- Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer and Lacura Beauty Concealer Pen under my eyes.
- All over lid is the UD Bootcall dupe (Shade 1) from the MUA Undressed Palette.
- On my lower lashline, I used the 4th shade in the MUA Palette.
-In the crease, I have the 2nd shade from the MUA Palette, and ELF Pebble Single Eyeshadow which is fast becoming a favourite for me!
- Also, to darken I am wearing the teenest bit of the bottom row 'Dark' shade in the Collection 2000 Smokey Eyes Palette. Also in this palette, to highlight I am wearing the cream shade on my browbone and inner corner.
- I lined the outer corner of my eyes really gently for a teeny bit of definition using the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Pencil in Taupe.
- We can't forget about the lashes! Here, I used my Primark Eyelash Curlers and my Maybelline The Rocket Waterproof Mascara

This is kind of my everyday eye look as it is so subtle and natural. It is also very quick, and I find using lighter, less heavy colours on the eyes really brightens and makes you look healthier and more awake.

LIPS


For the photograph above, I am wearing one of the Rimmel Apocalips in Luna. Luna is a gorgeous peachy shade that in the tube, doesn't look too good, but on the lips it is a beautiful peachy shade that goes with my skin tone really nicely. The formula on this is so creamy and pigmented, with a lasting time of around 3 hours. If you haven't tried the Apocalips yet, you must! I waited a bit after they were released, only buying mine last week. However, if you have been unsure about whether to buy I can reassure you, if you do you won't be disappointed if my experience with these is anything to go by!

NAILS


Lastly, the nails. I have used Barry M Blueberry, which is my favourite nail polish of the moment! I had this on my nails and got so many complements on the colour! Blueberry is a almost dusty but still incredibly pigmented, bright colour that I can only describe as a cornflower blue? Either way, I can tell this nail polish will be a firm favourite for me in the upcoming season!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post! If you have some of the products, give it a go!

Thank you all very much for reading!

  3. What a gorgeous look! I've not had time to apply any makeup this week as I've been so busy with Oscar (I forgot how much attention new born babies need lol) but Nathan's off work this next fortnight so I'm definitely gonna experiment a little and may have to pick up some of these products. Great post!
