FOTD Spring Neutrals

Although I've been loving bright shades for Spring lately, I can also appreciate a more subdued look. I thought that I'd share one of my go-to looks with you. I've been liking this look on days when I just want something neutral - no bright lips, smokey eyes, etc. So here you have it, my Spring Neutrals Face of the Day (FOTD)!

FOTD Spring Neutrals

I started off with Lancôme's La Base Pro Perfecting Makeup Primer* all over my face, and Dr. Brandt's Pores No More Pore Refiner on my nose to hide my pores. Next, I used Rimmel's Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation* in Light Ivory all over my face. This foundation gives my skin a pretty flawless finish, I just love it! For concealer, I used Maybelline's Fit Me Concealer, which gives good coverage and blends in easily. For finishing powder, I lightly dusted Maybelline's new Dream Wonder Powder* all over my face.

FOTD Spring Neutrals Products Used

To give my skin a bit of life to it, I used Maybelline's Fit Me Bronzer in Medium Bronze*. This bronzer gives a really natural glow to my skin, and it wears well throughout the day. Next, I mixed the pink and lilac shades from AERIN's Kaleidolight Palette* to use as a blush. To give a bit of shimmer to my cheekbones, I used a light dusting of The Balm's Mary-Lou Manizer*.

For my eyes, I used AERIN's Kaleidolight Palette* - I love that these powders can be used on both the eyes and cheeks! The shades in this palette are just gorgeous, and the formula is a dream, so creamy! I then used Too Faced Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner in Perfect Black to line my upper lash line. For my lashes, I reached for Arbonne's It's a Long Story Mascara*, which gives good length and definition. Underneath my eyes, I used Bobbi Brown's Corrector in Light Bisque, which covers up my dark circles perfectly. To brighten up my undereyes, I reached for Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind Concealer in Brightening.

For my brows, I used Estée Lauder's Double Wear Stay-in Place Brow Lift Duo*. Full review on this product coming up really soon! And finally, I decided to use Estée Lauder's Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Desirable*. I love everything about this lipstick - the colour, packaging, and formula. Seriously, I'm in love.

This might seem like a ton of products (and yes, I guess it is), but I can do my full routine in about 7 minutes. I would love to hear if you've tried any of these products, and what types of looks you've been creating lately :)
