We're definitely well into spring, so today I'm sharing my traditional seasonal beauty edit of my top picks of makeup, skincare and everything else for these few months. I hope you enjoy...


I don't know what's happened to me over the past year or so, but I've warmed to the whole 'oil on my face in the day' thing; I just love getting that dewy glow! Though I wouldn't necessarily use them together, I do really rate both the Glossier Futuredew | £23 | full review | and the Kosas Tinted Face Oil* (Shade 6) | £40 | full review. The Glossier is an oil-serum product that I use like a primer. It's perfect if you like the idea of a priming oil but don't feel quite ready to go all the way, plus it has a lovely pearlescent sheen. The Kosas also really pleasantly surprised me! Despite being an oil, it doesn't look greasy on my skin and this light-coverage base has brilliant staying power whilst also giving me amazing luminosity.

For a dewy spring skin look, I usually opt for cream cheek products, however I actually also have a powder that's perfect for this time of year and still gives that luminous glow. I absolutely love my Kosas Colour + Light Creme in Tropic Equinox* | £32 | full review. The formula is so easy to dab on and blend out with the fingers and it doesn't go patchy or fade away throughout the day. This duo has a champagne highlighter and a warm rosy-peach blusher. I also really like the Benefit Georgia Peach Powder Blush* | £27 | as a subtle sheeny peach colour for my cheeks. I wouldn't recommend it if you have a deeper skin tone than me, but it works for me when I'm doing a more natural look (which is 99.99% of the time!) and want that peachy vibe without going for a cool tone that would clash with my warm undertones.

For eyes, my go-to is the Nudestix Magnetic Eye Colour in Copper Foil | £20. I just apply some of this crayon to my lids and dab it out with my fingers for a long-wearing, crease-proof warm golden metallic look. And, finally, in terms of colour makeup, let's talk lips; I have a more sheer, glossy option and a matte colour. My go-to everyday shade for a sheer wash of warm rosy-nude colour that feels incredibly hydrating on my lips is the Fresh Beauty Tinted Lip Treatment in Spice | £19.50. When I want something more pigmented the Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick in Clay Crush | £6.99 | is perfect. It still has that slightly peachy undertone, despite being more of a terracotta nude, making it perfect for a spring look if you (like me) just don't do those very light pink and peach colours. It's very comfortable to wear and a total bargain.


When it comes to skincare I'm all about a glowing complexion, no matter what the season, but these are a few of the things I'm enjoying right now. My go-to morning cleanse is usually the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel* | £35 | full review | because this gel-to-balm-to-milk formula is full of vitamins and gentle enzymes to give my skin that glow. Plus it's so lovely and moisturising, ensuring my complexion looks fresh and healthy. I like following this up with the Pixi Rose Glow Mist* | £16 | full review. This dual-phase oil and water mist gives me amazingly dewy and moisturised skin with just a quick mist. You can even use it over your complexion makeup after powdering to give it that fresh look.

For healthy, dewy skin I really enjoy the Volition Strawberry-C Brightening Serum | £36 | full review. It's hydrating and gives that radiant skin look with strawberry-derived Vitamin C that's perfect for this time of year. I then use something like the Herbivore Pink Cloud Rosewater Cream | £42 | full review | which is a fast-absorbing water-based moisturiser. It's great for dehydrated skin like mine because it has a lovely plumping effect and also gives that dewy look to the skin in such a lightweight formula. Overnight I've been pretty into the Sweet Chef Superfood + Vitamins Beauty Oil | $24 | full review. This lightweight, fast-absorbing oil (packed full of moisturising ingredients) gives me soft, smooth skin by morning without feeling overwhelming or clogging my pores.


And onto the miscellaneous beauty items! Since lockdown started, I've actually been painting my own nails! *Gasp!* But, I decided to pick up a shade that I've had before as a gel manicure and is perfect for spring: OPI's A Great Opera-tunity Nail Paint | £13.90. This a beautiful warm medium-toned peachy nude that works so nicely on my skin tone and the formula is great too; nail polish chips so easily on me, but I get a good 4-5 days out of this one.

Finally, we have two fragrance-based favourites. It's no secret that I love the Nuxe oils, no matter what the time of year it is, but this particular scent is beautiful for the spring months. The Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Florale Multi-Purpose Dry Oil* | £29.50 | is great for the ends of your hair, if things are a bit dry, or amazing if you have dry skin on your body; it makes it so nice and soft without feeling at all greasy. Last, but not least, is a favourite I bring out every spring because to me it's fruity-floral goodness in a bottle! The Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom and Honey Cologne | £98 | is sweet without being sickly, floral without feeling dated and just gives a light, fresh splash of spring scent.
