Natural Spring Makeup

I've always kind of considered myself a one-look-makeup-girl. Meaning, I tend to do my makeup the same way each day. Lately I've found myself perusing YouTube in my spare time (bad, I know) and feeling more adventurous to experiment with makeup. I've been loving trying out different combinations to my regular routine and am finding that my weaknesses lie in lip color and blush. For example, with this look I opted for a brighter wash of lipstick and a more punchy blush. I love the way it turned out! Since I work in a professional setting on the daily, I think this is a perfect way to me to change up my makeup routine without getting too crazy. I can't bring myself to experiment with eye shadow just yet.

I've been trying out some products from essence and so far I'm obsessed. Similar to Wet 'n Wild, essence is extremely affordable and has surprisingly nice quality. This blush in Life's a Cherry (#60) is sooooo niiiiiiceee. It's bright, pigmented, silky and lasts all day long. I can already tell it's going to be on repeat for the spring/summer months. I've also really love the gel liner and matte fixing powder -- which are really long lasting as well. 

Products Used: Ready, Set, Gorgeous Foundation in #105, Essence All About Matt Fixing Powder, Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, Essence Silky Touch Blush in Life's a Cherry, The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer, Essence Gel Eyeliner in Midnight, Full Lash Bloom Mascara, NYX Butter Lipstick in Little Susie.

What about you? Any products/looks you've been experimenting with?
