Complexion Perfection

Moving from winter to spring can be a shock to the skin as the sunshine starts to peep through the clouds. Ensure your complexion exudes perfection with a fresh and bright glow, using Estee Lauder Nutritious Vita-Mineral Loose Powder Foundation SPF 15, £25.50 (House of Fraser). Begin by lightly sweeping the foundation over your cheeks, forehead, nose and chin for a sheer and satin-matt finish. Nourishing vitamins A, C, E and pomegranate will protect your skin, while delivering a youthful and radiant complexion.

Colour Pop

As your skin starts to lose its lovely summer glow, it’s important to rely on colour cosmetics to make your features pop. Uplifting hues of pink brighten porcelain complexions, so create a pretty spring look that gives the impression of sun-kissed cheeks. Be sure to apply Laura Mercier Illuminating Quad in Coral Red, £11.90 directly to the apple of your cheeks, swirling in circular motions to fake a naturally flushed complexion. Heavier-lashed eyes are suited to the changing seasons so keep your eyes looking wide awake and über fluttery with a slick of lavera Double Black Mascara, £12.90 (www.lavera.co.uk) for extra definition and sweeping gorgeous lashes. Alternatively for a sophisticated, natural daytime look try wearing A.H Francis Strip Lashes, £5.95 available from www.ahfrancislashes.com These delicate lashes will add a touch of ladylike-glamour to your spring beauty look.

Hair Flair
