Best in Spring Beauty


by IMAGE
14th Feb 2015

There’s a bit of a stretch in the evenings now, which tells us spring is headed our way – and with it, all manner of shiny new season beauty bits. Hey, we don’t make the rules?

Spring beauty is all about radiance and glow, and handily, there’s a fresh crop of products to help us achieve the look. Clinique’s bestselling Chubby Sticks franchise just got even better, with the launch of their contouring crayons; designed to work together or alone, these soft, creamy crayons, €23 a pop, turn contouring into child’s play – literally scribble on, and blend. Shop them here.

Prefer a powder finish? Isadora’s got you covered, with their handy three-in-one Face Sculptor palette. With a bronzer, highlight and blush, all for €25.50, this gives a flattering, natural finish that has won it a legion of fans. See the brand’s Facebook for stockists.?And if you’re still confused about contouring? Check out our masterclass here.

 

Another yearly indicator that spring is on the way? L?Occitane’s cherry collection has finally hit the shelves! Every year the French cosmetics house tempts us with a fresh variation on the theme; this year it’s Cherry Blossom L?Eau, a light and sweet scent with fruity floral notes. With an Eau de Toilette (?41), Fragrance Touch (?21), Shower Milk (?17.50), Moisturising Milk (?24.50), and Hand Cream (?10.50), there’s a new season treat for all budgets. Shop it here.

When we’ve torn ourselves away from our favourite lip oils, we’re protecting and perfecting our pouts with Clarins? new?Instant Light Natural Lip Balms. They give a great hit of hydration along with a soft, pretty tint. Shop them here.

Other standouts from the spring beauty collections include Chanel’s beautiful limited edition, Jardin de Chanel Blush in Camelia Rose, €43, and those divine lipsticks we gave you the heads-up about here.

What’s on your new season shopping list?
