My Top 5 Spring Beauty Essentials!

Hey guys!

I thought I would do a post that I haven't really done before, i.e. not a review or haul ;) I am going to do  my Top 5 Spring Essentials. I know this is a little bit late but in fairness, the weather isn't acting very 'Spring-y' at the moment (yes snow, I'm talking about you) so I thought i would try get myself in the Spring mood by showing you my Spring essentials! :)

First up is my Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake. I have done a mini post with swatches here. This lip butter is such a beautiful strawberries and cream shade that would make any day feel like Spring! They are so moisturizing that it doesn't matter if you skip the chap stick, and they have a lovely amount of shine so you don't need lipgloss either. Perfect! This is just such a pretty, everyday colour that is perfect for the Spring <3

Next is my 17 Nail Polish in Mint Choc Chip. I have had this polish for a few years now, and it keeps making an appearance every Spring/ Summer! It is not as true a mint green as I would like it to be, but it's pretty darn close! It doesn't chip very much and only needs 2 coats to be opaque. Mint is my favourite color, if you couldn't tell so this nail polish is my absolute favourite in my collection! The next  mint green nail polish on my list is Essie's Mint Candy Apple, I know, I know, typical, but it's just so pretty!!

I don't know about you guys, but I love to be tanned. Especially during Spring and Summer! So for me, bronzer is a must. I use this 17 Instant Glow Bronzing Powder which is not too shimmery and is a good shade for my skin tone that doesn't make me muddy and is not too pale! I use this as a contour and also on my forehead and on my neck.

My hands get ridiculously dry, so a good hand cream is another essential for me. Don't want none of those old lady hands, nuh- uh! I use E-45 Hand Cream and it has worked miracles for me! One of my knuckles had actually split (gross, I know) from being so dry, and after applying the cream twice, it had almost disappeared! Love, love, love this cream!! <3

As I said before, I love being tanned so I recently picked up this Dove Summer Glow + Soft Shimmer Nourishing Lotion in Boots. It was on special for about €3.50 (bargain much?!) My mom hates the smell of the Johnson's Holiday Body Lotion so I thought this one might be a bit better hahaha :) It is thank goodness, it actually smells quite nice! After applying this two nights in a row, I've built up a not streaky, even, nice smelling glow!

Okie dokie guys, they were my Spring Beauty Essentials! I hope you liked them, and just to show you what Spring in Ireland is like, I've included a picture of what I woke up to this morning! Oh Ireland, how you confuse me!

Enjoy, xoxo, Emma
