The newest palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills has created quite the hype, and for good reason! This is the perfect every day palette to create softly glamorous looks! The shades are neutral and can be worn naturally or built up for a dramatic night look. The shades are perfect for spring and summer and will give you an endless amount of looks to create!
Glittery bold eyeshadows are being traded in this spring for soft shimmery paler shadows. The look that is on all the runways is a soft wash of colour all over the eyelids. The easiest way to achieve this is with a cream eyeshadow stick, My favourite is the By Terry Ombre Blackstar. They are pigmented and long lasting and one swipe on the lids is all you need. the shade ‘Misty Rock’ is a beautiful soft lavender that is perfect for spring.
Maybe I am getting a little too excited for warm weather but a favourite scent right now is by Aerin and is called Hibiscus Palm. It evokes that perfect sunny tropical day! With notes of Lotus Flower Accord, Hibiscus Palm Accord, Tiare Absolute, and Coconut Milk this is a warm floral scent that smells feminine and perfect for the warmer weather!
It is no surprise that the secret to flawless makeup application starts with a good skin prep! The Smashbox primer water is your first step in makeup. You spray it on your face before any makeup and it hydrates, soothes and adds radiance. It instantly absorbs into the skin and leaves your skin plumped and smooth. And now it comes in limited edition scents! They have a coconut and vanilla one that is just wonderful to spray on and imagine all the warm days ahead!
This liquid liner is a cult classic and for good reason! It is completely waterproof and will not budge all day! But now they have just released a new ‘micro tip’. So if you have had any problems with winged liner now is your chance!! This small tip will give you more control so you can get that cat eye flick in a flash!
This spring it is all about pastels, and especially holographic tones! The best way to achieve this look is with highlighter. Becca’s formula of shimmering skin perfectors are some of the best highlighters out there, and this palette gives you very unique shades that will give you the perfect wash off colour on your cheeks. Why not step out of your comfort zone and add some colour this spring!
You may be sensing a theme here… but that’s because pastels have been all over the runway this season for spring!! This gorgeous liquid shimmer eyeshadow by Stila comes in many shades but the standout colour is ‘Freedom’ which is a soft icy teal. You can apply this directly onto the lid and blend it out with your fingers and get a gorgeous bohemian wash of colour. This colour will make your eyes pop and really stand out this Spring!
This spring Matte lips are out and are being replaced with ultra glossy lips! One of the best glosses that have recently launched is the new Fenty Gloss Bomb. This is a universal shade that will look good on anyone!! It has explosive shine that feels as good as it looks. It smells great and has the perfect rose nude shade.
Colour is definitely the theme this spring, but so is natural dewy skin. One way to achieve this is to use this blush from Lancome. This is a cushion blush so a sponge is surrounded by the liquid blush. This formula gives a gorgeous natural flush to the cheeks without looking over done. Go for a peachy coral this spring!
YSL has recently launched their new ‘Volupte Liquid Color Balm’ Lipstick that is the perfect hybrid between a balm and a gloss. It has full colour with dewy shine that feels comfortable and hydrating on the lips! Who could ask for more? They have lots of great bright colours that are perfect for spring!
