The Spring Face

Primping & Preening

Spring is all about simple, pretty, fresh makeup, and all through September and October I’ve been using these four products like they’re going out of style (always topped off with a spritz of Diptyque Philosykos). L’Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation | This medium coverage foundation stays pleasingly put during warm Spring days, and unlike a lot of products suitable for oily/combo skin, it doesn’t feel like you’ve slapped on a mask. A rare win for the greasy girls!

Clinique Cheek Pop Blush | Not only are these blushes super pigmented, they’re buildable, blendable, and bloody long-lasting to boot. My pick for Spring is the shade Berry Pop: use a light hand for subtle flush of pink, or build up for a dramatic hit of fuchsia.

Tarte Gifted Mascara | I usually prefer a plastic mascara wand to tame my lashes, but this bristle brush ticks all the right boxes – it lengthens, thickens, separates and volumises with a pleasing lack of clumpiness or mess. And let’s face it, with that bamboo packaging it’s the best-dressed mascara in town.

MAC Lipstick in Plumful | This pretty plummy shade is sheer but still nicely pigmented, and moisturising without being overly glossy. It’s my go-to shade for those days where looking like I’ve made an effort without actually doing anything is high on the agenda (so basically, it’s my everyday go-to).
