Spring Beauty Guide!

Hey everyone! With just under a week until Spring, it's time to bring out the brighter colours, florals and start warming up! I cannot believe how quickly time is going this year - it will be Christmas before we know it! Today I am sharing with you my top beauty product picks for Spring this season! So let's take a look!

Rimmel London Colour Rush Lip Balm by Rita Ora in the shade 100 Give Me A Cuddle; a beautiful soft peachy pink shade and 500 Redder The Better; an opaque vibrant marily red. The formula on these are beautiful and so easy to apply with the crayon tip. These are perfect for spring and will get you wanted to bring out the bright, fun shades! (RRP $12.95, available from Priceline, Target, Kmart, Big W and pharmacies nationally)

You can never have too many perfumes, because everyday we feel like something different right? So I think these 4 options will suit most people! From left to right: Ralph Lauren: Midnight Romance, Marc Jacobs: Daisy Dream, Chloe: Roses and Vanessa Megan: Autumn Afternoon (huh?).

Midnight Romance by Ralph Lauren (RRP $85 for 30ml, available from Myer and David Jones) is a gorgeous perfume with its main notes of pink peony and black vanilla. It isn't too sweet but has the perfume amount to leave you smelling fresh. 
Daisy Dreams by Marc Jacobs (RRP $60 for 30ml, available from Myer and David Jones) can do no wrong in my eyes. I adore all Marc Jacobs perfumes and this one is no exception. It's main notes are jasmine, white woods and musk and is perfect for Spring.
Roses by Chloe (RRP $80 for 30ml, available from Myer and David Jones) - This perfume. . is literally roses in a jar. It is intensely sweet, smelling of roses and is so perfect to wear in the spring time. It's main notes are bergamot essence, rose damascena and grey amber but all I really smell is roses. It's perfect.
Autumn Afternoon by Vanessa Megan (RRP $29.95 available here) - I know this perfume even says Autumn in it, but for some reason I find it very appealing for Spring. It is very musky and warm with notes of mandarin, lavander, patchouli and peru balsam. This perfume is more like a spray and sprays at a wider diffusion. I love spraying this perfume just before bed and i've been having amazing sleeps during the night!

Nail Polish:
The Rita Ora collection by Rimmel has such great colours in it for Spring and here are my 3 favourite nail polishes from the collection. (RRP $7.95, available from Priceline, Target, Kmart, Big W and Pharmacies nationally).

Breakfast In Bed - A stunning aqua blue creme with micro silver shimmer. Stunning! This is 2 coats with no topcoat.

Lose Your Linger - A light pink creme with silver micro shimmer. This shade is so girly and pretty I love it. 2 coats here with no top coat.

White Hot Love - A bright white with silver shimmer undetones. Clean, simple yet done really well with great formula. This is 2 coats and no topcoat.

Here's some simple nail art I did using Rimmel - Breakfast in Bed over OPI - Turn On the Haute Light. It is super pretty and very Spring appropriate!

It's a change in season which means my skin is recovering from the cold, dry months and needs love! I couldn't go past trying a face tanner and this one by ModelCo is amazing. It has a 2-in-1 technology for an instant golden glow and a long lasting, natural self-tan. It is super hydrating and absorbs really quickly. I just pump the two pumps at the same time and rub the product together in my hands then evenly distribute it all over my face and neck. I have noticed how much healthier I look with a natural face tan and I love it! I can't wait for the warmer months now with this little gem! My tan usually lasts about 3 days until I have to re-apply again. (RRP $29.00, available here).

QV Face Gentle Cleanser - This bad boy is something I take with me everywhere, whether it be down to the Gold Coast for the weekend or on a weekend trip interstate. It is a holy grail skincare item that gently cleanses your face leaving it incredibly smooth afterwards. It's perfect to gently slough dead skin cells and can be used daily too! (RRP $12.95 from chemists nationally).

Shiseido Perfect Cleansing Oil - I have now introduced cleansing oils into my skincare routine as a regular thing! I have noticed immediate results from it and pimples occur less often and they heal much quicker now (going down over night and pimple scars diminishing over 2 days). I've been loving this lightweight cleansing oil from Shiseido because it effectively removes all my makeup and any dirt and grime left on my skin from the day. It can also be used on dry or wet skin which is great to use in the shower! (RRP $40, available in October from Myer and David Jones).

So what are your Spring beauty products you will be using? I'd love to know if you have any handy tips! Thanks so much for reading.
