3 fresh makeup looks to get your skin glowing for Spring

Mix-up your makeup routine for a renewed glow as we get set for sunshine.

While spring may seem forever and a day away as the wind whips and frost bites, the new season is just around the corner – and with it comes a world of new makeup possibilities.

Sometimes a change is as good as a holiday, and changing-up your makeup routine will have you calling on warmer climes in no time. At Simply You, the key trend to clock – and to try now – is berry shades.

The trick to pulling off this luminous look with aplomb? Plenty of moisturiser, light foundation and a glamourous wink. Keep it fresh by wearing with pared-back hairstyles and precious statement jewellery, as below.

Berry bright

Together, raspberry lipstick and cranberry nail polish create a veritable feast for the eyes. Cut through the sweetness of the colour palette with a dramatic winged eye and, better yet, an array of glittering gems.

Nothing signals confidence like a cat-eye, perfected by the steady-handed among us. If it’s new to you, use a prop such as a back of a spoon to perfect your contour, before colouring-in with enigmatic black.

Fresh beginnings

The latest luxury jewels come in antique-styled settings that are at once demure and striking. Team with a no-makeup makeup look for effortless elegance.

The most important part of a natural makeup routine is to wear hydrating moisturiser, followed by a sheer foundation that won’t leave lines.

The start of each season is the perfect reminder to check your beauty cabinet expiry dates. Ensure your foundation has been opened for no more than six months to guarantee a light and dewy finish.

Glow getter

As the mornings get warmer, reach for a calming cleanser to wash away the winter blues, and apply a hydrating hyaluronic acid to replenish your skin. Then, it’s time to apply peachy-shades on your eyes and lips for a youthful colour palette.

Once you’ve mastered your makeup look, keep it in focus by tying a vibrant silk-print scarf to frame your face.
