    essence – Olà Rio Eyeshadow Palette

    Confession time Glossies; when it comes to eyeshadow colours, I can be a bit unadventurous. While I’ll still be sticking to my usual nudes, light brows and gold, I’ve decided to add a little shimmer and shine to my look this spring – and essence’s Olà Rio eyeshadow palette is the perfect accomplice.

    Inspired by the colours of the Brazilian sunset, it boasts 3 matte shades and 6 metallic hues that blend together effortlessly to add a little flare to every spring look. I particularly like the iridescent purple on the far right. It’s so en Vogue!

    A shimmery twist on traditional nude palettes, Olà Rio is the perfect combination of mattes and metallics for an on-trend spring look!

    Eyeko – Brow Gel Shape & Define

    When it starts to get warmer, I don’t like to wear a lot of makeup, so I need the little I have on to give me the same confidence boost – and that starts with a strong brow game.

    To achieve on fleek brows, I’ve recently started using Eyeko’s Tinted Brow Gel. This award-winning brow gel is infused with keratin and gingko biloba to condition and thicken your brows. It’s the easiest way to define your brows, while still maintaining a natural finish. Simply sweep the brush through your brows, combing the hair upwards and outwards, to style them into your preferred shape.

    I love how thick and full my brows look. It really opens up and brightens my face!

    essence – I Love Extreme Volume Mascara

    On a lovely spring day when the sun has cleared up my blemishes and spots, I only need voluminous, eye-catching lashes and I feel ready to take on the world.

    That’s why essence’s i love extreme volume mascara had to be part of my makeup haul. Retailing at just £2.80, it’s undeniably one of the best value-for-money mascaras out there!

    It boasts a large, plush brush and an ultra-black pigmented formula which makes my lashes look longer, curlier, thicker and darker than I ever thought they could be. Simply work the brush from the root of your lashes towards the ends to create a voluminous, multidimensional look.

    This mascara builds volume like no other, drawing attention to my eyes and making my whole complexion look healthier and happier!

    Appeal Cosmetics – Ultra Shine Liquid Lipstick in Cocoa

    I couldn’t go on a makeup haul without picking out a new lipstick. Because nudes are always on-trend (and the perfect finish to both a day and an evening look), I’ve gone for Appeal Cosmetic’s Ultra Shine Liquid Lipstick in Cocoa.

    Though the colour looks quite light when you first apply it, the hue intensifies as it sets and becomes a gorgeous pink, nude colour. Subtle and feminine, it’s perfect for spring!

    This lightweight formula keeps my lips hydrated, while adding a touch of colour and shine. It’s the perfect nude for everyday use!

  5. Illamasqua - Hydra Veil Primer

    Illamasqua - Hydra Veil Primer

    As the weather starts to improve (let’s not forget the gorgeous sunshine most of us had over the Easter weekend!), a primer becomes a makeup bag must. Not only will it keep your makeup in place on hot (and sweaty!) days, but it refreshes and cools your skin.

    One of my favourites? Illamasqua’s Hydra Veil Primer. Part hydrator, part primer, this clear gel primer blends microalgae, vitamin C and B3 to refresh and nourish your skin, while also soothing and calming any redness.

    Though I like to use it as moisturiser to balance my complexion and give myself a healthy glow, it also leaves your skin prepped to apply foundation over the top.

    I love how soothing and refreshing this primer feels. It keeps my makeup in place, while hydrating my skin for a dewy glow

    Enjoy your makeup haul Glossies! These products are spring essentials!
