With warmer weather set to hit in early September, it’s time to experiment with a few natural makeup looks. Pack away that winged-liner in favourite of shimmery shadows and glossy lips, perfect for the spring sunshine! Try a few of our spring makeup tips below and don’t forget to comment with some of your own.
Use glitter eyeshadow
Choose light, translucent shades for eyes and lips, which are so easy to apply. Most eyeshadows have a tint of glitter which is ideal if you don’t want to spend hours trying to perfect your makeup. Simply apply with an eyeshadow brush, or even with your fingers – just don’t forget to blend!
Try coloured mascara
Put away those falsies in favour of coloured mascara which can really make your eyes pop. Navy is a great alternative for girls with naturally light complexions, since black can often look a little harsh.
Swap foundation for BB cream
Make sure your tinted moisturiser or BB cream is packed with SPF to protect your skin from the sun. Choose a shade which blends flawlessly into your neck and don’t forget to set it with translucent powder.
Don’t underestimate a highlighter
Use a liquid highlighter on the very top of your cheekbones to create the illusion of a healthy glow. Powder highlights are better for women who have oily skin types since it works to mattify the skin at the same time.
Use a bronzer
Apply your bronzer over the forehead, nose and cheekbones to give the skin a natural glow. Make sure to blend with a powder brush and lightly dust your decolletage.
Try a natural blush
Avoid using blushes with glitter since they can make the skin look artificial. Lightly tap your brush into the blush, remove the excess onto the back of your hand, then apply directly onto the cheekbones for a youthful glow.
