With spring just around the corner, it is time to leave behind those vampy lips and grungy eyes and immerse yourself in the world of fresh and flirty spring makeup.


Dewy skin is something we all want in spring, right? Well, the perfect way to create that J-Lo glow we all crave is to mix a liquid highlighter in with your foundation. Look no further than the Nyx Born to Glow Liquid Illuminators to add a radiant sheen to the skin. But why stop there? To maximize your glow, apply a generous amount of powder highlight to the top of your cheekbones, down the centre of your nose, on your cupid’s bow and under your brows.


For that desirable sun-kissed look, a subtle, shimmery bronzer will have people questioning whether you’ve just returned from the Bahamas, and Soap and Glory’s Wonderbronze Shimmer Brick will transform you into a golden goddess in no time.

Peach blushes are a spring makeup must-have providing you with a healthy and natural colour. Bourjois is a high-street brand that offers affordable blushes, but if you’re wanting to opt for something a little more lavish, The Sweetheart Blushes by Too Faced add a romantic flush to the cheeks (and the super cute heart-shaped packaging is an added bonus!)

Bright colours are an essential in spring, meaning it’s time to dig out your favourite coral, pink and glossy lipsticks. Mac carry an array of gorgeous lipsticks with colours ranging from pretty pastels to vibrant pinks. To add even more glam to those pouts, lip gloss will give the illusion of plumper lips and add a lustrous shine. An alternative, budget friendly brand that offers a variety of lip colours is Maybelline, while Rimmel’s Oh My Gloss in Crystal Clear will add a wet look finish to the lips.


Sometimes less is more which is why soft and simple eyes are a spring makeup trademark. Urban Decay’s Naked 3 Palette is full of smooth mattes and stunning shimmers allowing you to create an elegant and understated eye look. But if at almost £40 this is a little out of your price range, then the Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 Palette is a dupe and steal at only £4. If all those romantic hues just aren’t spring enough for you, adding white eyeliner to your waterline will guarantee a bright-eyed look and put a spring in your step.
