Spring Makeup Look With Mac

I love the changing of seasons and spring is one of my favourites why you ask? because the weather gets warmer the nights get lighter and everything changes to a more summery feel, so with all this in mind I've done a little spring makeup look which I've done in collaboration with House Of Fraser  who contacted me recently and asked me to chose some products from their online store using Mac Cosmetics,  I chose the Toledo Range and the Violetwink palette as i love beiges and pinks and purples and the Blush Palette in Kindergarten Red.

So how did i get this look everything I've used i will list below, my eyes are every colour from the palette, i started with the lightest colour (sweet allure) over the whole eye lid, then i also blended (french clay) over the lid, i took (tender smoke) the darker taupe colour and pushed that into my top lash, i then used (stars n rockets) my fave colour which is like an iridescent pink purple at the inner crease and blended then took (frizzy plum) and blended that into my outer crease and lined this under my eye, the darkest colour (overnight) i used to line the outer corner of my eyes and under neath my eyes.

Im quite a full on eyeliner girl so i really paired this look down as i wanted it to look fresh and spring like almost like a spring day and i think this look is very day wearable one although you could strengthen the look by doubling the intensity of the colour and that would be your night look.

Normally as well i love my bronzer and contouring but I've totally skipped this and tried to keep it natural (well as natural as i can be ha ha )
But i can't be too natural as i need my makeup (cries) so on my cheeks I've used the Mac Blush in Kindergarten Red now this looks a bit scary in the pan but as its ombre effect you have a lighter to darker blush, which i just swirled my brush all over and blended well on my cheeks, i liked this effect i think it gives a just been for a run look in my case a 2 minute jog.

The fun part makeup wise for spring and summer is it reminds me of pinks and pastels and purples and lovely spring/summery colours and you can experiment with makeup and make your look as subtle or as heavy as you want it.
