Spring Beauty.

February 23 2011
Makeup Trends and my Must-Haves for the Upcoming Spring/Summer season!

Colourful Splash.
This season, embrace a fresh new look with a splash of colourful make-up. Don’t worry your little cotton socks if you’re a natural make-up lover, adding a hint of colour to your look can be a fun way to brighten things up! There are lots of eyeshadows, lipsticks and blushes in a myriad of colours, textures and finishes, so you’re sure to find something you can work with!


1-3. Juicy Shades in Orange, Passionate & Lucky Green Eyeshadows (£11.50, MAC)
Sweep across the lid, line eyes with a black liquid liner and coat lashes with voluminous mascara…it’s like you just walked off the runway!

4. Green Devil Eye liner (£4.99, GOSH)

Why not switch it up? Forget black eye-liner and go for this lush green instead!

5. Cobalt Blue Mascara (£10.00, The Body Shop)

Combine this with a neutral look for a subtle statement. Apply on the tips of your lashes.




1. Fuschia Lipstick (£3.99, Sleek)
This hot pink-y fuschia paired with a bare face is just beautiful.

2. Morange Lipstick (£12.50, MAC) 

Give the classic hollywood look a lift by opting for this gorgeous orange shade in place of the traditional red!




1. Creme Colour Base in Virgin Isle (£13.50, MAC)
Cream blushes are a great way to add colour to your cheeks! If you’re oily like I am, apply some translucent powder over it to set it.

2. Creme Blush in Neon Rose (£6.00, Topshop)

Sheer Beauty.

Sheer and understated make-up is never going to get old. A smidgen of the right mascara, a sweep of a natural looking blush to bring life to the cheeks, with the perfect lip colour ought to do it! 


1. Collossal Mascara (£6.00, Maybelline)
Define those lashes with a few coats of mascara. This is one of my must-haves for any season. It’s a very good quality drugstore mascara that’ll give you a voluminous and lengthened look and won’t leave your pocket feeling unhappy!

2. Speed Brow (£12.00, Benefit)

Frame your face with decent looking eye-brows. I thread mine, but you can opt for plucking…just make sure you don’t over pluck! Follow the natural shape of your brows. This brow set is perfect to keep hairs in place for the whole day!



1. Fresh Brew Lipstick (£13.50, MAC)
Enhance your natural pout with a lipstick that’s close to your lip colour. You can always mix colours together to find the perfct shade.
2. Hug Me Lipstick (£13.50, MAC)
This is a nude lippy with a hint of pink, for those who want a little colour. 



1. Sheertone Blush in Peaches (£17.00, MAC)
 This sheertone peach blush is oh so lovely. Sweep across the cheeks for that inner glowy look!
