Spring usually translates into bright colours as far as make up is concerned, and I'm no different; as soon as the sun comes out and it's not quite as cold outside, I rummage through my dressing table and pull out all of the corals and bright pinks!  Only one of the products featured in this post is new, which I think is quite an achievement for me - however this post goes live on payday so the situation may actually be changing as you read this..

Stila Eyes Are The Window palette in Spirit is pretty under rated in my opinion, The twelve matte and light shimmer shades are so pretty and compliment my eyes really well.  I don't get much fall out with these either which is good when you've got summery shades, as the last thing you want is glitter cheeks!
Benefit Coralista blush is an old favourite that I've repurchased a few times now.  I just love the mix of four orange and pink shades; the resulting colour is a healthy, bright coral glow that looks natural and really enhances my complexion. 
Lipstick wise, it was really hard to narrow it down to just three shades because I have so many bright pinks and oranges that I love for spring and summer.  I had to pick my newest addition to the family which is MAC Flocking Fabulous, a gorgeous creamy pink which has a cremesheen finish.  
I also chose Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfecter in Rose Shimmer, which is a subtle shade with a gloss feel and finish but without the stickiness that glosses can have.  
I had to include a matte shade too, which is my favourite finish in lipstick, and I went for Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Unapologetic - an oldie but a goodie.  I love lipsticks in pencil form because they are so easy to apply, and this one is no different.  The colour is a bright and vibrant pink, which has a minty scent which I love and it lasts for hours too without fading or needing to be reapplied.  
On my nails, I always love a bright colour and I always find myself reaching for Essie Fiesta, which is a bright candy pink.  Essie is always a winner when it comes to nail polishes - they have a super glossy and professional finish, and last for days without chipping.    

I really could have picked out so many more products; spring is such a good time to experiment with bright colours!  What are you going to be wearing this spring?  Do you have any of these bits? xx
