Give your make-up a spring makeover
The sun is finally here and the days are getting longer so it’s time to lighten up your make-up bag with some products guaranteed to give you a spring glow!
Swap thick foundations for BB Cream
Heavier foundations are fine for winter skin, however, when spring-time hits, BB Cream is a better choice. These still give your skin a hint of colour and even offer sun protection, but they’re gentler on your skin. Garnier BB Cream + Blur, moisturises, evens out skin tone and blurs wrinkles – a bargain at just £12.99!
Swap dark blusher for a bright pop of colour
Once the weather gets nicer, it’s time to ditch those darker shades and opt for something bright like coral or pink on your cheeks. We love Bellapierre Lip and Cheek Stain, £12. Not only does it add a cute spring flush to your cheeks, but you can also use it on your lips – a double duty beauty product!
Swap heavy lipsticks for balms
Spring is all about pretty lips. Think soft pinks and glossy finishes. Bareminerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Sparkplug, £16, will create the perfect spring pout! Alternatively, choose your favourite pink lipstick and top off with some LipGlam – as found in this month’s parcel! It’s 100% full of natural ingredients and makes lips glossy and soft.
Swap liner for metallic shimmer
It’s time to step away from the kohl. Yes, we know how fabulous it is, but spring-time is all about metallic hues for eyes. The good news is that it’s pretty foolproof, even for make-up newbies, and a quick sweep of gold shadow can lift any look. Try Autograph’s Ultimate Wear Cream Shadow Stick, £9.50, from M&S.
