Get lippy

Bored of hearing about bold lipstick? Well lipstick has had a fresh new makeover for spring, making it stand out even more than before! The secret to nailing a striking spring lip? Pair it with super clear, clean skin and natural brows for a really wearable high-fashion finish. The bright colours and new glossy finishes of spring contrast with a neutral base and really make the pigment pop (plus it’s easy to go for when you’re running late – which we always are)…

Smokey smudge

Perfectly balanced and blended smokey eye? Frankly, we haven’t got the time! Embrace a more grungy edge to this classic look with spring’s new smudging trend. Throw all skill out the window and punt for an imperfect smudge of eyeliner. The more haphazard and random, the better with this one!

Pop of colour

Whether it’s a bold lip, striking nails, coloured eyeliner or mascara, anything goes with this trend, as long as you’re rocking colour. Even better is a monochromatic theme that takes one colour throughout the whole look. Reflecting the colour blocking trend of the fashion world, explore this trend through makeup by mirroring a colour theme on your eyes, nails, lips and more. Take Lady Gaga’s killer Grammys look for monochromatic colour pop inspo – the streak of orangey-pink in her hair takes the complimentary eyes and lips to the next level.



If you haven’t seen Bella Hadid’s Dior Gradation tutorial yet, then where have you been?! We’re obsessed with it, and so are many others judging by the fact that the four products used in this video are all sold out on some outlets. Taking the trend of using multiple colours to create a graduated colour blend, we think this look is a perfectly wearable way to get a hint of colour into your spring look! Use the blue Dior palette instead of the pinky-brown for a double trendy nod to the pop of colour trend.

Lush blush

News flash: contour is out and blusher is in! Ditch a sharp contour in favour of more subtle ways to create definition in line with the season’s ‘no-makeup makeup’ base. Adding a pop of pink to the cheeks, temples and across the eyes, is an ultra-modern way to update this 80’s classic product.

Spring clean

We’ve said it already, but we’ll say it again, clean skin and ‘no-makeup makeup’ trends are still big. Now is the time to take control of your skincare routine and get ready to bare a little more during the summer months. Faux flawless skin is only a sweep of satin foundation and a blob of highlighter away though, if you’re not ready to go nude just yet!

Loaded liner

Whether it’s a low-key cat or a feline flick, bold eyeliner is set to become the next statement lip. Learn how to create a smooth liquid line above the lashes and you’re good to go with creating any manor of looks. Experiment with colour first to mix-up your usual black number, before taking your liner up a level with a double wing or maybe a super wing for a daring alternative to a power pout. “Eye say!”
