Spring make up routine

Hello beauties:)

I don't usually go extreme and totally change my make up game from winter to summer, but with the temperature and mood change comes the need for some pastels, flowers and nudes...

The bases for me stay the same - things I can rely on. I don't use a primer, cannot explain why, probably still didn't find the right one for me. For foundation I'm using my Inglot Cream Foundation, getting really obsessed with it. To prime my eyes and erase some blue veins - Kiko Eye Base - my best friend. I mentioned it before and will mention it probably thousand more times - this is the best and the cheapest eye primer, it holds through heat or cold or rain all day.

For the eyes I'm using a slight bit of my Kiko bronzer and then go to Bourjois Ombre Stretch in 09 brun nylon which is one of my all time favourite nude shade to use all around my lid. For creating the colour on my eyeball I use loose shimmer eye shadow Suivez mon regard Bourjois in colour 12 rose lilas. To be honest I'm not the biggest fan of this product. The shadow itself is beautiful, it goes smoothly on the lid and doesn't fall off. The colour is pretty also, but the packaging... No, it's not convenient and innovating, it's annoying. It's all plastic pot, even inside with a small hole where sits the small brush on which falls the product from inside. So when I want to get eye shadow on my brush I have to put it in that hole and hope I'll get something out... Probably all of it sounds ridiculous, who had it or saw it would understand me:) I got it as a present and I like it, but not for every day.
I don't want to use any eye liners, I just cover my lashes with a bit of mascara and at the moment I use Inglot False Lash Effect Mascara. I actually like it very and very much.

I recently got 2 new little friends - Estee Lauder Ideal Light Brush-on Illuminator and Clinique Cheek pop blush. These are so spring and refreshing make up products. The blush is very hyped in the blogging world and I understand why. First - the packaging, is there anything more cute than this bright flower in the pot? I feel sorry to use it... The shade I have - 02 peach pop is the most beautiful peach blush out there. It is such a pleasure to apply it - it's very smooth and buildable. And yes, it lasts all day and stays in the right place.
The illuminator brightens up my under eye area, refreshes the look. It's quite thick so it helps to conceal the dark circles I always have. It also lasts all day, stays in place and doesn't crease.

For my eyebrows, of course, I'm using Kiko precision eyebrow pencil and bronzing with my favourite at the moment Kiko bronzing powder. For the lips - YSL Rouge Volupte in shade 8. The last but not the least note is the perfume. And I choose Coco Mademoiselle.

So this is the look I've been reaching for. I like it to be light peachy-pink with warm bronzer all around (Please excuse me for my hair, it's not super fresh). It's super easy and fast, appropriate for informal walks and working or studying moments.  
I hope you liked this kind of post, please let me know in the comments. Thank you for stopping by:)
