It’s finally spring! The weather is milder, the daffodils are blooming and our favourite makeup brands are bringing out all manner of new colours and collections to discover for a new season!
I have researched the hottest spring newbies on our makeup counters and chosen the 5 that I think you will love:
1) By Terry – Glow Expert Duo Stick.
Now, I’m all for a product that will do two things in one. As a busy body myself, on the go all the time, I’m constantly looking out for products that will be quick and easy to use, but will still be very effective. Which is why the new By Terry Glow expert duo stick has caught my attention.
This is the type of product is ideal for quick use, but is also utterly perfect for Spring. With shades of peaches, pinks and bronzers and a highlighting side to compliment it has got to be my favourite product of the season! Big statement!
Even better, it has an integrated blending brush to make the application super simple. All you have to do is sweep the stick gently onto your cheeks and blend in with the brush to create a super radiant, healthy glow with a pop of colour.
2) Bobbi Brown – Dual-Ended Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick.
I’ve always raved about Bobbi Brown Cream Eye shadow sticks since working for them years ago, therefore to see they’re doing a dual-ended stick is just a dream for me.
They have created this product so that you can use the lighter shade on one end, as you’re all over base colour, and the other darker shade to add definition into the crease. I love this idea as it saves you buying two products, but it’s also so convenient and handy for those will less time.
Bobby Brown has brought out a variety of shades, so there is plenty of choice depending on your skin tone, eye colour and personal preference. I personally love the ‘Truffle & Bronze’ shade.
3) MAC eye shadow Dusky Rose Palette – 9 eye shadow palette.
I’m a huge fan of MAC’s cute little 9-pan palettes. They last a long time and usually come in a combination of colour’s that complement each other, which helps you to create a variety of different looks.
This particular palette, they have just released – ‘Dusky Rose’, is such an ideal palette going into spring. The colours are ideal with a variety of dusty pinks, pastel violets, cool bronzes and purple toned browns – you can create looks to go from day to evening or evening to night with a light and colourful spring twist.
4) Dior Nude Air Luminizer – A shimmer sculpting powder.
If you’re into makeup then you’ll at least have one highlighter in your makeup bag, – or if you’re honest you’ll have a whole collection. (see article: ‘What’s in my makeup bag?’)
Highlighters are a must have product, as they are such a great way of accentuating or enhancing your natural bone structure and making you look naturally radiant.
This beautiful new luminizer from Dior is just the perfect product to highlight this spring. I feel in spring you want your makeup to be fresh and subtle yet with a little more oomph. So this fits in perfectly as it’s not over the top but gives enough radiance that you feel like you can glow into a new season.
Coming in four different shades, depending on your skin tone, the highly illuminating powder is designed to be dusted lightly onto the areas of the face you’d like to reflect light. For example, I’d place it on the tops of the cheekbones, arches of the brow and bridge of the nose.
5) Charlotte Tilbury – Matte Revolution lipstick in Pillow Talk.
As a lover of the brand Charlotte Tidbury, I have tried most products in the range and one of my favourites has always been the ‘Pillow Talk’ lip cheat – lip liner. I find it’s an ideal shade for most nude/pinky lipsticks as it almost mimics your natural lip colour whilst creating definition to the lips.
Charlotte Tidbury has now brought out this very colour in a gorgeous matte lipstick. This is great for me as I’d often use the lip liner as a colour for all over the lips because it’s just one of those shades that will work so well on a lot of people. Not to mention being a popular bridal colour.
If you love nudes then give this a go!
