Spring clean your beauty routine: 4 products to help you refresh your make-up bag
24th Mar 2022
Experimental beauty looks have been on the up and up this year thanks to shows such as Euphoria, and Spring’s hottest trends look set to build on the basics… which is why it’s so important to give your make-up bag a quick refresh.
Between getting rid of empties and sorting through products that are months past their use-by date, ensuring you have the right things to hand will keep you looking your best – even when you’re halfway out the door and still patting eyeshadow on your lids!
Trying to find products that fit both your beauty needs and your budget can be a bit much but Catrice Cosmetics has just launched their new Spring/Summer collection, so fear not. 100% cruelty-free, and mostly made with vegan ingredients, everything is extremely affordable too and nearly every product in the new range costs less than €9! Make-up for pros, prices for everyone.
Below are some of our top picks.
Back on the go
Our social lives have returned with a vengeance in the past few weeks, and with brighter evenings and sunnier skies on the horizon, we’re eager to capitalise on those precious daylight hours. No one wants to waste time doing themselves up in the bathroom mirror though, so investing in reliable, practical and powerful products that fulfil several functions at once is key.
Catrice Pure Volume Mascara +, €4.95
Not only will Catrice’s new Pure Volume Mascara give you voluminous lashes in seconds, but the formula has also been enriched with almond oil and castor oil – so one swipe will help to nourish your lashes and promote hair growth too.
Fun follows function
Catrice Glow Lover Oil-Infused Highlighter, €5.50
This spring, it’s all about that glow and the collection’s Glow Lover Oil-Infused Highlighter has you more than covered on that front. Allowing you to set subtle highlights while nourishing the skin at the same time, the baked powder texture has been enriched with macadamia oil and shimmers in a unique colour mix of soft shades with a hint of rosé that flatters every skin tone.
Catrice Energy Superfruit + Protection Serum, €6.95
A return to the office – and the daily commute – means that our skin is under more pressure now than the lockdown days of yore when putting on a full face of make-up was but a distant memory. However, just because our calendars have filled up again, that doesn’t mean that our skincare routines need to suffer and the Energy Superfruit + Protection Serum is just the ticket to keeping your complexion in good nick. Made using acai and goji berries, its revitalising formula provides a boost of energy… especially in the morning when used before applying your usual day cream. It also has a blue light filter that protects the skin from the stress induced by the blue light of digital devices (such as computers, smartphones, TV screens and tablets).
Follow that up with a lick of Catrice’s best-selling HD Liquid Coverage Foundation, for optimal coverage.
Catrice HD Liquid Coverage Foundation, €8.50
Now made using an even cleaner formula, it’s free of microplastic particles and has been enriched with skin-perfecting niacinamide for a weightless, liquid texture that feels like a second skin. You’ll be happy to know that it’s also waterproof, sweat-proof and transfer-proof too.
Catrice Cosmetics new Spring Summer 2022 collection has everything you need for a new season refresh of your make-up bag and is available now from Penneys and select pharmacies nationwide. Follow @CatriceCosmeticsIreland to stay up to date on their latest beauty launches.
