Here are some of my tried and tested make-up tips:
Go for a fresh and natural look: Spring is all about freshness and new beginnings. Embrace this with a natural make-up look that enhances your natural features. Use a lightweight foundation or BB cream to even out your skin tone and add a touch of blush to the cheeks for a healthy, natural-looking flush.
Protect your skin: As the weather warms up, protecting your skin from the sun's harmful rays is essential. Use a moisturiser with SPF before applying make-up to keep your skin protected and hydrated.
Play with colour: Spring is the perfect time to experiment with bright colours. Brown skin with warm undertones is best suited to try peach or coral shades on eyes and lips. If you have cool undertones, opt for lavender or lilac hues. For a more neutral look, go for earthy tones like brown, bronze, and gold.
Highlight your eyes: Use eyeliner to create a bold and defined look. Experiment with different styles, such as winged eyeliner or a smoky eye. Use mascara to lengthen and volumize your lashes and add a pop of colour with an eyeshadow.
Keep your lips hydrated: Use a lip balm or tinted lip gloss to keep your lips hydrated and add a pop of colour. Opt for shades complementing your skin tone, such as pink or coral for warm undertones or mauve or berry for cool undertones.
And finally, it's important to have fun with make-up and not do it from a corrective point of view. It's essential to love yourself, be confident the way you are and enhance your features with make-up to look your best. By embracing natural looks, you can create a beautiful Spring make-up look that complements your features.
