Spring Beauty Tag!

I was tagged in Gillian's Spring Beauty Tag video and i really liked the questions so i thought i would write it up as a blogpost because i'm not brave enough for YouTube!  

1. Do you change up your makeup when Spring arrives? If so, how?
Yes! As soon as i see those daffoldils start to pop up im out with the wine and berry tones and in with some lighter, brighter makeup. I'm all about the glow in spring and i love MAC Strobe Cream to inject some life into my dull, pasty complexion. So far this spring i've been loving my Clinique eyeshadow duo in Strawberry Fudge, and the Bobbi Brown Crystal eye palette to create fresh pretty eyelooks with plenty of shimmer to bring light to the eyes. On the lips i've been sporting my perfect peachy nude - MAC Shy Girl or YSL Sheer Volupte in No 4 for a bright but sheer pop of colour, and on my cheeks my go-to's for spring are usually cream formulas like the Bourjois Cream Blush, and colours that brighten up my face like one of my all time favourites, Tarte's Amazonian Clay blush in Blissful.

2. What's your favourite Spring fragrance?
I really love Marc Jaocbs Daisy Eau So Fresh at this time of year, its fruity and fresh and really uplifting!

3. What's going to be your favourite accessory this Spring?

My favourite accessory at the moment are a pair of peach and gold pendant earrings as shown above. I just love the colour for spring, a lot of my new clothes are pastels and these earrings go with everything. I can't remember exactly how much they were but they were pretty inexpensive from New Look.

4. What's going to be your most worn item of clothing this Spring?
I think i can already say my most worn item this spring will be my denim shirt. I love the colour, it looks good over vests, under jumpers and just on its own and it hides a multitude of sins - ladies you know what i'm talking about!

5. What are your Top 3 favourite Spring nail polishes?
I talked about two of my new favourite spring nail polishes the other day here and my third pick would have to be the Rimmel Salon Pro in Peppermint.

6. Do you prefer pumps or sandals in Spring?
I've got to be honest and say unless the weather in the North of England improves significantly i will probably be wearing my winter boots for most of the Spring, but as soon as i can wear them without my feet freezing i will be rocking the sandals! 

7. What's your favourite Spring jacket?
This question was easy because i have been dying to break this faux leather jacket out again ever since i got it this time last year. As you can see in the picture above, it is a muted khaki/grey fitted biker jacker with a fabric waterfall-style collar and zip pockets. It can be dressed up or dressed down and the colour goes with nearly everything and i get complimented on every time i wear it. 

I hope you enjoyed this tag, i always like seeing how different people answer the same questions. I'm going to tag my girls Sandy, Stacey, Lou, VanessaGemma, Anoushka and Kate.
