Lips and Tips Spring Picks

As the sun makes an appearance (finally!) the dark shades are hidden away while the pastels and nudes come out to play, Hooray! (bit of a rhyme there for ya). I still love my bold shades at this time of year but a light hue on the lips makes for feeling all summery and fresh. Innocent was my first foray into Topshop makeup, a baby pink which applies creamy and is moisturising (post)Next on the lip front is MAC Vegas Volt, a beautiful, fairly bright coral that is an easy day wearing shade (post). I am not a huge gloss wearer but NYX gloss in Natural makes the cut. A pinky nude that looks great layered on top of Innocent. With a non-sticky formula (sticky glosses should be banned if you ask me!) that feels comfortable on the lips. 
So when it comes to polishes, darker shades will always be first pick but when it’s bright outside the dark nails just doesn’t feel right for some reason. I think Nails Inc Porchester Square (post) has got to be mine (and many others I assume) favourite nude. There is just something about the tone that compliments the skin. Another fab shade from Nails Inc is Peach Sorbet (post). A white based pastel peach which also looks pretty amazing with a tan. The loveliest baby blue I have ever owned is Revlon Blue Lagoon (post), scored from Poundland.
Result.
With tiny iridescent sparkles running through this does look outstanding on. Last but not least is Essie Bangle Jangle. A beautiful lilac with that brilliant Essie formula. 
What will you be wearing this spring?
