Dare Yourself With Full Colour Make-Up
After a long hard winter, there’s finally a touch of April sun in the air and the promise of sultry days to come, so now’s the time to tip out all those dreary greys and fill your make-up bag with some brand new colour for spring. Top of the trend list is a colour to suit your mood, whether a dash of ice-cream colour or a startling vivid glow, your palette has never looked more interesting.
For all day daring colour your foundation has to prove its worth. After cleansing and toning, let your skin breathe au naturelle for an hour if you can spare the time, it does wonders for the circulation. Then using a fingertip length of Guerlain’s Radiance In A Flash working it up into your hairline for a radiantly smooth finish, apply Guerlain’s Terracotta Sun Moisturizer. With a SPF factor of 15 it protects you from harmful UV rays while working hard to give you an enhanced tan, a perfect base.
Clinique’s Sculptionary Cheek Contouring Palette is a mix of three daring shades like Defining Berries or Defining Nectar.
The colours to take you into Spring are already here. Clinique have their All About Shadow in singles or quads in varying shades of ice-cream colours, while Art Deco‘s wonderful spring collection of Duo Chrome eye shadows is in such an extensive range of colours you’re literally spoilt for choice. Try Pearly Dark Passion, a beautiful purple hue or opt for the bright Strawberry Pie.
For a perfect pout this spring, exfoliate your lips to remove all the dry skin that has accumulated through those harsh winter winds. Before applying lipstick outline your lips with a toning shade of lip liner to add a little definition. Chanel have a lovely collection, Rouge Coco Lip Blush, that promises a colour to match every mood with Tender Rose is a subtle shade for when you’re feeling quiet.
For a bold look to catch everyone’s eye, Guerlain have a fiery Rouge G lipstick colour number 43 which has intense shades of red and pink. Clinique have their Long Last Lipstick that assures you it will stay in place all day.
