Healthy, hydrated skin is not going anywhere any time soon, and this spring it’s all about fresh, dewy complexion that’s barely there. Achieve this look with a light coverage foundation or bb cream, ensure your skin is super hydrated and finish off with a blinding highlight for ultimate glowing skin.

2. Feathered Brows

Gone are the days of skinny, perfectly arched brows. This spring we are all coveting an undone, feathered brow look as seen at Mugler, Haider Ackermann and Balenciaga. Unfortunately we can’t all have brows as fluffy as Rosie Huntington-Whitely, but even with sparse brows you can achieve this look by using a brow gel and spoolie brush to brush your brows up, and fill in any gaps with an angled eyebrow brush in upward motions.

3. Pastel Eyeshadow

One trend which is definitely getting us in the mood for spring is pastel eyeshadows. Hues of mint, blue, peach and lilac graced the catwalks and brands such as Huda Beauty and ColourPop Cosmetics have hopped on the bandwagon, releasing their own lines of pastel palettes so you can recreate these looks yourself! Pair with a nude glossy lipstick and a wispy pair of lashes for a fresh look that’s perfect for spring!

4. Pearl Embellishment

Embellished eyes are everywhere, and this is one look that looks super impressive with little effort needed! Pearls are in fashion this season, and what better way to wear this trend than in your makeup look? Pick up some craft pearls and use a small amount of eyelash glue on the flat side, and apply with tweezers for a precise application. Top tip: apply while your eyes are open to avoid getting them lost in your eyelid crease. Perfect for jazzing up your weekend look.

5. Wet-look lips

Time to push aside those matte lipsticks you’ve been wearing for months and dig out your glossiest shade as glossy pouts are in this spring. Recreate this diffused gloss look by applying a small amount of your favourite pink or red lipstick to the centre of your lips, then blotting out to create a blurred effect. Finish off with a clear lip gloss for maximum shine.
