Last weekend, here in Europe we moved our clocks one hour forward so that we can now benefit from an extra hour of light in the evening.
One of the main reasons I hate winter is that it gets dark so damn early, which just makes me want to hibernate.
But now I have so much more energy and just feel generally happier. When I leave the office at 5 pm it doesn’t feel like the day is already over…
Ahhh, I love Daylight Saving Time, I love spring, and, of course, I love spring makeup!
Every year, as soon as leaves start growing back on trees, I develop a great appetite for bronzer. I mean, I use it throughout the winter to avoid resembling Uncle Fester, but in the spring I always get an itch to add a new one (or five!) to my collection.
This year, the (first) Chosen One is the Guerlain Terracotta Ultra Matte Bronzing Powder, which I’ve been loving over the past few weeks, even though I have to use fake tan in order to make it work on my otherwise very pale skin. Check out my full review for more details!
To match the warmth of the bronzer, on the eyes I’ve been pretty often using the ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in Desert, a warm light brown with a beautiful satin finish. Its cream-to-powder formula is super quick and easy to apply and lasts all day. See it in action here!
I wear pretty natural base and brows throughout the year, but I feel like in the warmer months that’s pretty much mandatory! (I spend a lot more time outside and find that natural light is quite unforgiving on the amount of makeup I have on my face.) The most skin-looking concealer I’ve ever tried is definitely the Glossier Stretch Concealer, and if you want subtly groomed brows the Glossier Boy Brow is where it’s at.
My last, but most definitely not least, favorite product of the month of March (and one of my favorite products of all time!) is the NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Setting Powder. Like I said in my review, it’s the first powder I’ve ever tried that doesn’t make my under-eye area look all dry and crepey. If you use concealer under your eyes (if you don’t, you’re one lucky b1%&£ and I’m very jealous), you need this powder in your life!
