The Edit | The Spring Face, Take Two

So for the past few days i've worn the exact same make-up, that very rarely happens. I try to use different products everyday so everything in my stash gets some love, however when you find a combo that just works, you've got to stick with it. I talked about another go to Spring face a few weeks ago, you can read that here
So I start with the Rimmel Stay Matte Primer (review) which i've raved about a lot, if you have oily skin you need to try this. Next I go onto the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser (review), this stuff is just perfect, light weight, decent amount of coverage and stays around all day. To set things in place i've been using the Revlon Nearly Naked Powder again, this also feels light on the skin and helps to keep the oils at bay.
For concealers, on blemishes my go to is still the Seventeen Stay Time 18 Hour Concealer, it just does the job, it isn't drying and covers really well. Do cover the dark circles under my eyes that are caused by spending my days writing essays, the Maybelline The Eraser Eye has a good amount of coverage yet feels surprisingly light on the skin.
Okay, onto the exciting bits. I've been in love with this cheek combo. First the Max Factor Cream Blush in Soft Pink, the perfect pink colour which is a little sheer so looks natural on the skin. Then onto the No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter (review), which adds a lovely subtle glow onto the cheekbones. Then I follow with a touch of the NYC Sunny Bronzer to warm things up a little. These three together look so lovely.
For eyes i've been keeping things really simple. I've just been sweeping on a bit of the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze, I think this looks best when worn alone. For mascara i'm still using the L'oreal Mega Volume Miss Manga mascara, not my favourite but adds a nice amount of length and is very black. For brows, the L'oreal Super Liner Brow Artist in Blonde has been my go to for a while now, it does the job and is a good colour match.
I find this make-up look is more of a natural looking one so I tend to keep the lips fairly simple. The Maybelline ColourSensational Shine Gloss in Gleaming Grenadine, adds just the right amount of colour to the lips and feels like a balm, perfect.

So that's the make-up i've been wearing lately, the stand outs are the NARS Tinted Moisturiser, the Max Factor Cream Blush and No7 Highlighter, all are amazing products which I can't stop using. What products have you been reaching for lately?
