At the start of each season most of us do a thorough wardrobe clear out, but do you ever take the time to go through your makeup bag? If not now is your moment. A host of exciting new products are starting to arrive on beauty counters, so it’s the perfect time for a spring clean.
Swap dark, smokey eyes and heavy liquid eyeliner for a slick of Clinique’s lightweight sheer colours. The Chubby Stick shadows are easy to apply and come in a great selection of shades (my personal favourite is “Whopping Willow”). Worn with a few coats of mascarra and a dusting of AERIN’s pretty Floral Illuminating Powder, your daytime beauty look will be sorted in under five minutes.
And once the clock strikes six simply apply a coat of Yves Saint Laurent’s Rouge Volupte lipstick, which will take you from office to bar. With 19 different shades in the Rouge Volupte collection there’s definitely something for everyone, and the lipstick’s fruity mango scent instantly makes it feel like summer!
That’s your makeup bag sorted then. And if you’re looking for a new, summery fragrance to accompany S/S 2013’s fresh beauty looks you’ll want to try Jo Malone’s limited-edition Sugar & Spice colognes. Launching in March, the collection includes five quirky scents: Redcurrant & Cream, Ginger Biscuit, Lemon Tart, Bitter Orange & Chocolate and Elderflower & Gooseberry. You’ll either want to wear them or eat them…
