Spring make-up tips
Spring has sprung! And with a new season, comes a new look. Spring make up is all about glowing skin, fresh colours and a new lease of life. We’ve compiled our tips for making the most of the new season and what it means for your daily make up routine.
Spring is all about the dewy, just-stepped-outside, fresh face. Think low coverage foundations that still let your skin breath. Or perhaps ditch the foundation all together and go for a BB cream, leaving your skin with that healthy and dewy finish. If you’re blessed with really exceptional skin, you can even just brave it with only concealer- brighten your under eyes with a highlighter pen, cover up any blemishes and voila, spring ready, dewy, all-natural skin.
Ditch the dark hues of winter and opt for something a little brighter for your lip in spring; think corals, pinks and oranges. The matte look is over for spring, go for glosses or a lip oil with a hint of colour that will condition your lips at the same time. A lip tint is also a great alternative to a more opaque lipstick; a tint will stain your lips all day, without feeling heavy and drying and no need to re-apply!
You might not have jumped on a jet plan abroad yet, but you can go ahead and start faking the beautiful bronze glow. A sweep of bronzer in a ‘3’ shape down the sides of your face will add warmth, colour and life to your skin. Ditch the matte, and go for a bronzer with a hint of shimmer to re-awake a dull complexion.
Light eye make-up
Winter is all about thick liner and heavy lashes; spring is all about keeping it fresh and light and youthful. A sweep of mascara to open your eyes is all that’s needed for an every-day look. Though if your eyes do need a bit of waking up, glide some nude coloured liner in your waterline to widen them, giving you that Bambie-esque eye look.
But if something – pink
If you can’t go without a sweep of colour on your lids reach for lighter, brighter colours. The catwalks for S/S 16 were all about pinks and oranges. Whether you go for matte or shimmery eyeshadow, pink hues will open up your eyes and add a youthful pop of colour that is perfect for spring.
