As Spring has well and truly sprung it’s time for me to switch up my base. Over the autumn and winter I was loyal to my favourite - Laura Mercier Silk Creme. Nevertheless, since the beginning go the year I’ve not been feeling it. It’s a little heavy and matte and not making the best of my currently spot free skin. Touch Wood. I’ve recently switched up my base so it’s time to share it with you guys!

For a primer, I’ve been using the Clarins Insntant Smooth Self Tan - a smoothing primer with a tanning tint. It provides a super smooth base all while adding a touch of colour to the skin. I like that it’s foolproof and I don’t need to be too careful applying it unlike other facial tanners. It’s so hard to go wrong! I personally think duo fibres need to make a come back in 2014. One day I reached for my Real Techniques Retractable Bronzing Brush to apply my base and I haven’t looked back. It’s so easy, quick to use and really gives that flawless airbrush finish. Used in conjunction with MAC Face & Body it yields a light coverage but the perfect spring time face base. MAC Face and Body is like “my skin but better," providing light buildable coverage with a natural dewy finish. I then adjust my concealer depending on whatever skin ailment I have at the moment. I’ve been loving the Estee Lauder Double Wear Brush on Glow - a concealer and highlighter hybrid. Excellent for pepping up the under eye area and concealing any bags!

My spring foundation routine focuses on minimal coverage, but flawless with a touch of bronze. I've ditched my usual super matte look and have been reaching for highlighters, bronzing bases and illuminating primers to make my skin look fresher. I highly recommend switching up your foundation routine as the seasons change - It's so worth it!
