Spring has finally sprung! As a new season calls for a new beauty regime I thought I’d share with you my 10 Spring beauty must haves:
1.DARPHIN Organic Rose Aromatic Care
I love aromatic oils and this one not only smells divine but leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. Equally gorgeous (and slightly more affordable) is the Trilogy Rosehip oil.
2. KIT COSMETICS full color Lip Glaze
Bold lips are very much on trend this year with fushia and orange being hot Spring favorites. The key is to keep the rest of your make-up minimal to keep the focus on the lips and avoid the ‘clown’ effect.
3. MAKE UP FOR EVER aqua eyes eyeliner
If bold lipstick isn’t your thing then how about saying hello to sunshine and blue skies with a touch of turquoise eyeliner? Most make up brands have their own version of bright blue eyeliner at the moment so you’re spoilt for choice really. What I like about this Make up forever eyeliner range though is that they are waterproof so I know I won’t have to worry about smudges on very hot days.
4.BODY SHOP vineyard peach body scrub
Kiss your dry winter skin good-bye and indulge in an all-over body scrub before summer! I love all of the Body Shop scrub products but this peach-scented one is particularly gorgeous. Also great are the Lush cosmetics body scrubs.
5. ST TROPEZ perfect legs spray
Spring is the perfect time for a little self tan. I’m a big fan of the St Tropez range (who isn’t?) but I’ve also had great results with the Neutrogena and Sugar Baby range. By the time summer and mini-skirts roll in you’ll be ready to bare gorgeous bronze skin!
6. URBAN DECAY naked flushed palette
Work that sun-kissed look with this clever 3 in 1 palette. It includes a bronzer, blush and highlighter and its size makes it perfect for traveling as well.
7. CLINIQUE CC cream
Forget BB creams, this year it’s all about the CC cream! A moisturizer, color corrector, sunscreen and foundation all rolled into one, CC creams provide a lovely light coverage perfect for warmer days.
8. MARC JACOBS sunshine daisy eau de toilette
Perfume and sunshine do not always match so opt for a lighter fragrance this summer. This limited edition of ‘Daisy’ is a floral fruity fragrance that blends mandarin, lily of the valley, and violet notes. Alternatively a mist of ‘Sweet pea forever‘ could be just the spring ticket!
9. BUMBLE AND BUMBLE defrizz shampoo
The only drawback of warmer days is that they often come with humidity. To avoid having your hair turn into an afro switch to a smoothing shampoo for the next few months. On the other hand, if you feel like embracing your natural curls then the bumble and bumble sea spray is the perfect option for you.
10. AVON portable pedicure set
Open toe season is upon us but before you put on your new sexy sandals make sure to you give yourself a nice pedicure.
