WITH just a few weeks until Spring officially begins, giving cheeks and lips a warm blush in anticipation of some warmer and less snowy weather is a great way to make the next month and a half go quicker!
Spring actually begins on the same day as I reach full term pregnancy (37 weeks) which will be a milestone as this was the time when I gave birth when I was pregnant with my first son. Hopefully when my second son arrives, it will be to spring flowers and sunshine – something that will be much needed when I’m up all night.. and all day!
To give myself a romantic flush, I’ve used Avon’s Mark range – I’m impressed with their stick blusher in blushing nude which adds a subtle wash of warmth to the cheeks.
I used their Liquid Lip Lacquer Matte in Irresistible (centre, in the above pic) which is perfect for Valentine’s Day but a lot brighter than I first anticipated. I wouldn’t wear the blush and this colour together again as I felt that the overall effect was too warm and would choose to wear one or the other in future.
I paired these products with a simple eye using pale shimmers and golds and a slick of mascara and filled in brows using a neutral eyebrow pencil. Ignore the tired look around my eyes – think I’ve picked up my son’s cold which is not helping!
However, with this beauty look I’m feeling positively more Spring-like, already! Now… just seven more weeks to go.
